How to reset "Service Now" indicator

Hello All !  This question is for a 2011 turbo S (997.2). So do i need anything  to reset the "Service Now" light, a scanner or something ? Cant remember the exact mileage, but its pretty low.  If not, may i ask how to do it? I looked at the owners manual, but no information. And i did try the "Find a question" page, but did not see anything specific to my car. Any advice would be appreciated ! Thank You.

No start. All dash lights on and an electical motor on/off sound

First year with this car so sorry for what I hope is a newbie question.  Stored the car this winter.  Today I went out to install my new floor mats and moved the seat back as instructed,  no problem.  When done I went to move the seat back and the seat wouldn't move.  I tried inserting the key, still no luck.  Put the key to the on position and nothing other than all the idiot lights lit up (it is trying to tell me something).  Removed the key and all lights stayed on and a noise like an electircal motor was trying to start over and over...noise and lights continued for 15+ minutes.  I was

Got windows tinted today, now door thinks its open and lights won't go out

So, I have a problem that is perplexing me.  I got my windows tinted today, and apparently the tint place used some buzzer beater that the stick in the door pin of the car so the window stays up when the door is open and the chime stays off. When I picked up the car, I noticed the interior lights won't turn off.  I checked all the doors and the trunk and engine lid, all closed. STill won't turn off.

Spoiler fault

I am getting a SPOILER FAULT on my dashboard. If I am going > 75 mph, the spoiler raises. If I then drop to 65 it faults. I was recently at Porsche of Louisville for 15 mins. They reset the code and thought it was all good, not looking at it any further and not driving it. However, as soon as I left, it faulted again. Any ideas other than letting them look at it for hours at a time? I can make it raise with the button anytime I want. If I am not > 75 mph it faults. After 2 engine restarts, it will just retract on its own. Wierd.
