Re: [DML] Re: lambda warning

You do not need to remove the lambda counter to reset it, but you do need 
to crawl under the dash.

The reset "knob" is a small, rotating button with two holes.  To reset 
mine, I made my own tool:

  1. took an impression of the knob with silly putty
  2. tapped two brads/nails into a small block of wood to align with the 
holes in the impression
  3. used a Dremmel to cut the nails down to short and equal height
  4. voilà - a new tool.  Insert and rotate to reset (can't remember which 
direction, sorry)

I actually used a bottlecap the first time I tried this, but the friction 
heat from the Dremmel melted the plastic.  You could probably do this with 
a bent paper-clip if you had the device in your hand, but when under the 
dash it requires more dexterity than I possess.

Don't forget, the light is an actual reminder to check your lambda system, 
although I'm sure you already keep everything in tip-top shape without the 
benefit of a dashboard idiot light.  :-)
