If your talking about the odometer reset that's just to help you have start point for keeping track of something. Like how many mies since oil change, miles traveled, etc.


A 99 does not have that capability, I don't believe there is any make or model even today that can do that, with the possible exception of million plus dollar super cars and concept vehicles. Yours will still need a code reader or live data scanner to help you find out what is going on.


I have a 96 chevy . It has a "hold to reset" button by odometer. If this is wat u have it's a 'count up' feature to again just allow u to just keep track by mileage, only, how far or how long its been since u did something. Like change oil or how far you drove, etc. Is this wat u have? Its a very simple feature, very basic!


As other guru mentioned if u have problem (do u?) Than take to a local large auto parts chain. A lot have free analyzing of a code on 'check engine' light
