You can reset it manually. Make sure the car is off, then click the ignition over to ON (do not turn over the engine). Press the INFO button until you see the service reminder (should be a wrench with 3 dashes by it). Once you see this, press and HOLD the INFO button for 3-5 seconds. The reminder should add 6 months and 5000 miles.

I have a Mistubishi Lancer 2008 and about 2 week ago transmission service required pop up when I'm driving and when I stop and turn the car off and start it again it dissappear and yesterday it pop up...

It may be nothing more than a reminder that the transmission needs servicing but it may also be a warning of possible failure. Have it checked out at a dealer service centre ASAP.

Emission warnig light on

Check Engine Light
The fault codes are cleared after the problem has been rectified and the engine has been started 5-10 times.
Service Interval Reminder Lights
The on-board computer is used to evaluate mileage, average engine speed and engine and coolant temperatures as well as other computer input factors that determine maintenance intervals. There are 5 green, a yellow and a red LED used to remind the driver of oil changes and other maintenance services.
The green LED'S will be illuminated when the ignition is in the ON position and the engine OFF. There will not be as many green LED'S illuminated when the maintenance time gets closer. A yellow LED that is illuminated when the engine is running, will indicate maintenance is now due. The red LED will be illuminated when the service interval has been exceeded by approximately 1000 miles. This is the computers way of saying this is your last warning.
There is a service interval reset tool manufactured by the Assenmacher Tool Company (tool 62-1-100). This tool is used to reset BMW 6-cylinder and 4-cylinder vehicles with the aid of an additional adapter tool.
  1. Locate the diagnostic connector near the thermostat housing.
  2. Plug the special reset tool into the diagnostic connector and place the ignition switch in the ON position.
  3. Depress the reset button on the tool until all 5 green LED'S are illuminated, showing that the reset has completed.

How to reset service reminder alarm on Toyota aurion 2008?

I am not familiar with that model but most Toyotas reset like this. Tune the key off. Pess and hold the odo/trip reset button while you turn the key to the run position (do not start the engine). The odometer should change to all dashes which will disappear one at a time then change to all zeros and then back to the mileage. Release the button as soon as the mileage is displayed. Sometimes the trip A needs to be displayed before you turn off the key to start. Your owners manual should have this info as well.

My C-class mercedes has a message about service on the instrument panel and it won't go away. Can you help me.

hi this is telling you that the vehicle is coming up to or is due its service, manufacturers now make a point of reminding people that there car needs a service,what happens it, when you get the first service, the mileage is set so if they say you have to have a service every 40,000miles what they do is set it to 39,000 miles then a reminder will start flashing on your dash to remind you, you can get it reset using a reset diagnostic tool, but to be honest, if you have a car like this, i wouldn't want to skip a service....hope that helps

What does "service" light mean?

The service light comes on every 5000 miles to remind you to change the oil & check fluids. It is reset with a special tool that connects to the OBDII connector.

Put the ignition on, hold down the info button and while holding it on, turn ign off, the little spanner on the display will flash..after 5 flashes, release the info button and press it once more ON-OFF again and the service interval will be reset for 15K.
