how to reset service indicator

Just had my A service done but they forgot to reset the service indicator. Can someone please tell me how to do it myself.
Thanks

The instructions are in your owner's manual.

I followed the instructions under Flexible Service System in the manual and it did not work. I have no buttons on my steering wheel. Anybody?

If you follow the instructions for the FSS reset in the manual, it will work...you have to be quick and it might take a few tries.

Get in the car and close the doors. Put your finger on the R button but do not press it yet.

Turn your key to the Run (ON) Position(ON but not started)

Now Press the R Button 2 times.

You will see the number of miles/days remaining for displayed.

Turn the key to the off position within a few seconds (do it quickly).

Press and Hold the R Button while turning the key back to the run (ON).

keep holding in the R button for 10-15 seconds more, you should hear a beep, and see that the system has reset the service interval.

Let go of the button.

I did exactly what you suggested and what was in the manual. NADA! the number of miles or days does not display rather SERVICE DUE NOW. after the first step turned the key off, pressed and held the R button, turned the key to #2 position but did not start, and held for at least 15 secs, no beep, no reset. I follow instructions well becuase I give instructions all day long in a call center so I know I did it the way it should be done but it won't reset. Please dont tell me to take it to the dealer.

Believe me, I'm the last one to say ..go to the dealer.
Are the doors closed?
It's been a while since I had my '99 but I'll try..when you press R twice...don't wait for the mileage to come up...press twice/off/continue to hold/back on...all within a few seconds

If I remember correctly you turn the key to position 2, press O twice, turn off and then quickly back to position 2 while holding R until it beeps.

Interestingly enough!!!!! I pressed the 0 button three times, held it down and turned the key to off then turned the key to #2 without letting up on the 0 button and it reset. Sheesh!!!!! Hope I can remember this the next time. Thank you all.
