Default What is the trip reset button?

1. turn the key to the ON position which means pressing the start button twice on the new IS since it doesn't has the key, foot off the brake
2. Press the trip reset button couple of times until the ODO is displayed (not trip A or B)
3. turn the ignition to the LOCK (OFF) position
4. unbuckle the driver's seatbelt if it was buckled.
5. turn the key to the ON position again press the start button twice. when the dash lights comes on, press and hold the trip reset button and count a slow 12 seconds. (editor's note, hold it more like 30 sec)
6. while still holding the trip reset button, buckle the driver's side seatbelt.
7.and the odometer display should read "b ON" or "b OFF". toggle the beep OFF with the trip reset.
8. the process should be completed when you unbuckle or turn the key off.

Its the button next to the odometer you press to reset the trip-meter (the a and b things)

Can you explain this? Where is the toggle button?

You hit the trip reset button to switch from "on" to "off" and back again.

funny how we take some knowledge for granted now. It reminds me of the simpson's episode.

"Press any key...where's the any key?"

Huh!!. All this just to reset the trip meter. Ain't electronics priceless. Perfect example of how to complicate a perfectly designed and simple manual process that has worked fo years on older cars and current basic models. See BMW "I-Drive" for another useless example....all in the interest in being different to seperate us from hard earned $$$$!

...that's not to reset the trip meter. This is to disable the seat belt warning light.

If you want to reset the trip meter, go to either Trip A or Trip B...and hold the trip button.

That's nothing. I had to change my blinker fluid this weekend, and to get to it, I had to take apart the entire camber compensator assembly, remove the anti-vibration potentiometers, not to mention the johnson rod and all the usual goodies. It took up my entire Saturday to do a 5 minute job, because I had to go buy metric screwdrivers to do the camber compensator.

well, the Contra one was easy. I meant the 007 373 5963. It's a code for another popular game... I think only people in the 27 - 32 age range will think it's familiar...
