Thanks

    I thought you had to do it with a scan tool? I'd be interested to see if you actually can. I know on my sisters Honda, you hold the gas pedal and brake pedal down at the same time with the car in the on position but not running for 5 seconds to reset it, or something crazy like that.

    Look around for a chevy one, I think its somethin like its pressing the brake pedal in a certian sequence.
