how do i enable/disable the seatbelt reminder buzzer noise using the trip meter button?
to enable/disable that annoying seatbelt reminder buzzer, follow these steps using the trip meter button, but make sure you still buckle up!:

step 1
turn the key to the 'on' position. using the trip meter button, toggle the lcd until 'ODO' is displayed.
step 2
turn the key off. turn the key back to the 'on' position. within six seconds of doing so, press and hold the trip meter button for ten seconds. after ten seconds, buckle the driver's side seatbelt.
step 3
the buzzer by default is set to on. once you've held the trip meter button for ten seconds and then buckled the driver's side seatbelt, the lcd will then disply 'b-OFF', telling you that the buzzer is now turned off. you can now let go of the trip meter button. if pressed again in this mode, you will set the buzzer back to on, 'b-ON'.
*note*
if the battery or combination meter is disconnected, you will have to follow the procedure again.

 

how do i clear the 'maintenance required'/oil change light using the trip meter button?
step 1 turn the key to the 'on' position. using the trip meter button, toggle the lcd until 'ODO' is displayed.

step 2 turn the key off. now, push and hold the trip meter button. while holding the trip meter button, turn the key to 'on'.

step 3 while you continue to hold the trip meter button, you will see on the lcd disply five (5) small dashes and they will begin to 'count down' rather quickly.

step 4 continue holding the trip meter button and once all the dashes have been cleared, your lcd will display six zeros (000000) - release the trip meter button now - and then the lcd will display 'ODO' and your current mileage. at this time, your 'maintenance required'/oil change light has been reset.

i disconnected my battery and now my power windows and power moonroof aren't working properly. what's wrong?
the power window system and power moonroof actually memorize their initial positon and if you disconnect the battery or if you burn out a fuse or disconnect just the right switch connector, they lose their memory and they need to be reset. when this happens, the led's located in the power window switches will blink when you turn on the car, the power windows 'one-touch' feature will no longer work and the power moonroof will not entirely open. you need to to reset them by following these procedures:

resetting the power windows
resetting the power moon roof
step 1
turn the key in the ignition to 'on'.
step 1
turn the key in the ignition to 'on'.
step 2
on the driver's side control, push down (do not use 'one-touch' down) the power window switch for the driver's side window and lower the window halfway.
step 2
keep pressing the sliding roof switch to the close side until the center glass panel is fully closed.
step 3
pull up (do not use 'one-touch' up) the power window switch until the window closes and hold the switch for *at least* one second.
step 3
if the switch remains pressed for approximately two more seconds after the panel is fully closed, the sliding roof ECU memorizes the fully closed position.
step 4
repeat these steps for the passenger side window on the passenger door window control. the windows should now open and close like they should.
step 4
the center panel glass returns in the open direction a little and informs that initialization is complete.

 

my tire pressure light is on and i know my tires are correctly inflated. how do i re-initialize the tire pressure warning system?
the tire pressure monitor detects any changes in the tire inflation pressure. therefore, it must initialize and store it in its memory if the tires or wheels have been replaced or the tires have been rotated. you can re-initialize the system by following these steps:

step 1
check and make sure that your tires are inflated to the correct pressure
step 2
turn the ignition switch to the ON position. If the low tire pressure warning light comes on, push and hold the tire pressure warning reset switch (in the glove box) until the warning light turns off and then release the switch.
step 3
now press and hold the tire pressure warning reset switch until the low tire pressure warning light blinks three times.
step 4

initialization is *not* completed until driving at the vehicle speed of 19 mph or over for more than one hour. the tire pressure monitoring starts when initialization is completed.
