The following Service Light Reset Procedures are published here as described by technicians working on these cars. We cannot accept any responsibility for damage/costs incurred resulting from their use

  • Service OIL will be displayed

  • Press the button again and hold for approx. 5 secs. until "Reset" or "Re" flashes
  • While the display is flashing, briefly press the button again to reset the Service Interval. After the display has shown the new interval you should see "END SIA" for about 2 seconds

Note: that if the "Reset" or "Re" does not flash, then you have not met the minimum consumption level and cannot reset

  • Turn the ignition on (warning lights come on) wait about 10-15 sec until most or the lights are off (still pressing odometer reset button)
