Re-Setting the Service reminder-How to Do it??

I as well as my mechanic are having problems re-setting the service reminder.:(! It is the wrench and mileage that blinks for 10 seconds and you are instructed to click the 0 2 times during the 10 second blink.. Forget it -- not on my 230 !. Can't get it to clear and go back to 0.. Any ideas?[?][:(!]

Are following these instructions exactly to reset the FSS?

They are at least 2 things in the instruction posted, that don't work on my ML.
The 365 days counter limit doesn't apply, since our service intervals average 18 months.
To reset FSS counter you have to start the procedure in the "sleep" mode - doors close and all displays off. Without it you can keep on trying, till you get it right. Some members report, that sleep mode is not required on their cars, when other say, that they had to repeat it several times to work.
