Hold down the trip meter button, turn the car to on, wait about 20 seconds, start the car, and let go of the button. Light is reset until the next mileage interval. *make sure low beam headlights are turned OFF during the procedure*


With the squealing brakes, sounds like its tIme to replace your brake pads and rotors as well.

Go to Auto Zone they will run a free code test. they have the hand held diagnosis machine. It is free.
