The only way to reset this odometer to zero is by clearing MyKey . If this odometer is lower than the last time you checked, then the MyKey system has been recently cleared.
• # MYKEY(S) PROGRAMMED — Indicates how many MyKeys are programmed to the vehicle. Can be used to detect deletion of a MyKey .
• # ADMIN KEYS PROGRAMMED — Indicates how many Admin keys are programmed to the vehicle. Can be used to detect if an additional spare key has been programmed to the vehicle
