 +  - The vehicle speed must be zero.
 +  - ThrotPos must exceed 72%.  (Verify by logging.)
 +  - Beginning with the ignition on but the engine not running, the minimum sequence is:  turn the key off (first time) for 1/2 second, on for 1/2 second, off (second time) for 1/2 second, on for 1/2 second, off (third time) for 1/2 second, then on and leave on. (The speed of the off-on should be about like a clock going tick-tock or a bit faster. ​ Failure to reset usually is caused by toggling the key too slowly.)
 +  - If you initiate logging prior to performing the reset sequence, the logging will halt (the seconds counter will stop updating) the instant the reset happens.
