You can break that gear if you push the reset when the car is moving (or just rolling).

Most probably the small orange gear lost a couple of teeth. It's not just about reseting it while in motion, heat and age take their toll on those little plastic gears. Mine just went out a week or so ago, I'm looking into having someone fabricate a copper replacement. Let's see if that works

Don't get too excited. It's just a matter of time until it quits for good.
Also, watch that it isn't "loosing" miles.
