Oh, _Canada_. That'* probably your problem right there: 15 of anything in the U.*. = 13 in Canada... (acg_ssei ducks behind the monitor as a metric yardstick goes flying overhead... )

Jim'* right on again. You can either get the Dealer to tell you what Resistor code you'll need, or you can do it by trial & error with the different resistors.
...with a 3-minute pause after each failed attempt to wait for the system to reset...
