The only way to reset the warning light is to plug in a code reader and reset it, most mechanics will do this very cheap, hope this helps

What causes the engine service required message to come on in an s60


This is an interval message. Basically, it comes on after so many miles to remind you to do an oil change (and related service based on your miles - air filter, cabin air filter, etc.).

The Check Engine Light is when something more serious is going on.

Your light shouldn't come on when you accelerate hard, it should come on and stay on for 2 minutes.
To reset it there is a procedure to keep the odometer on TRIP 1, then turn off the ignition. Then hold it and turn on the ignition to IGN II and keep holding the button until the trip 1 resets to 0 and then let go.
That's from memory so google the process to make sure you get it right, but it was something like that on my car (2006 Volvo). I think the earlier ones had a process with the READ button on the stalk, but I'm not sure.

"Time for service" light comes on after the car


Your mechanic may have forgotten to reset the light. Also if the time for service light is your check engine light a fault code may be stored in the vehicles on board computer. Have the codes pulled to determine if a fault code is present or not. If there are non you can have the light reset, however if there is a fault code and you just reset it the light will keep coming on until the problem is corrected.

"Service" light just started coming on over the weekend. It comes on, stays on for about 5-10 minutes, then goes off. The other lights - check engine (I think), oil, etc. - come on when I turn on the car...


The light is set to light by milage and it is to let you know that the next service is due. This is reset by removing the rubber grommet that is to the left lower corner of the speedometer and depress the reset button.

LEXUS LS 2004 Maint Reqd (Master warning light) how I can switch off after change the oil engine?


You can disconnect your battery for 15 minutes or pull the fuse for an ECM or PCM fuse, but the best way is to visit any local repair shop. Most shops will have a universal Check Engine Light Code Reader that can quickly and safely reset check engine light trouble codes. It should take about 30 seconds.

Ask your local service center if they could reset the check engine light with a Check Engine Light Code Reader.

HOW DO YOU RESET THE SERVICE LIGHT?


Guys he said service light not check engine light. To reset the service light make sure the trip odometer is in T1. Then turn the key to the first position. Depress the trip reset button and turn the key to the second position. The service light will blink in a few seconds. Release the trip button and turn the key off. When you start the car the service light should be out. You may have to do this a couple times to get your timing right so the light will reset.

Cougar service engine light comes on for the first two miles


Hold down the "trip" and "trip reset" buttons at the same time when the service engine light comes on. The service engine light comes on between 5000 and 8000 miles as an oil change reminder, however you have to reset it manually.

the light can be reset by disconnecting the battery for a few minutes, but the light is telling you there is a problem in the electronic controls of the engine, until that problem is fixed the light will continue to come on. Here is how u test the system for the trouble codes that are stored whenever the check engine light comes on. Go to the link for instructions on how to retrieve codes.
