The only "trick" they don't mention in the owners manual is to close the doors. It alludes to "activating the instrument cluster" in the manual, but don't really say how to "activate" it. This had us chasing our tails a bit back in 98 or whenever it was this came out. Anyways, closing the door is how it's activated. Everything I believe except the ML is like this, last time I tried the ML would reset with the door opened.
