    Turn the key forward but do not start the engine. Hold the trip miles/oil change button in the gauge cluster down for apox. 12 seconds. It will start blinking. Then you can start the car and it wont come on anymore.

    also there is another way to do it, start the car, turn it off, turn the key, press the gas petal to the floor 3x and it resets

    The "press the trip odometer for ~12 seconds" is what I do-takes no time at all....well okay, it does take some time-12 seconds LMFAO...

    Antifreeze light does not have a life meter. The low coolant sensor is probably fried..

    It always did in mine, That's why I switched to the petal technique, doesn't reset your mileage.

    The sensor is likely just dirty with crud/gunk on the end, take it out, clean it and retry it, it worked for me!.
