Hmmm I didn't realize the 88'* had that. Cool.

I'm going to suggest the Mods move this to the 87-91 forum as it'll get you better exposure.

why dont you change the oil early, and get all maintenance out of the way, and then reset the computer by disconnecting the battery

do the other resets work..???

for oil and filter which should be the same as the others.
I press and hold the DIC ,, it flashes.. then you cycle until you reach the option you want and then push once and hold to reset.

Default dic

Thats correct, reset it just like you do the oil reminders. Press and hold the DIC button while that function is displayed.
