    Tlester3, There really is not reset for the service engine light unless there are no current diagnostic codes. If the lights is on, the vehicle is indicating it has a problem with its emission system.

    Drive to your local Auto Zone or Advanced Auto and ask for a code scan, record the codes and let me know what they are so we can begin curring the problem.

    Good luck.

    Regards,

If you open up the fuses box, you should find a fuse that has a reset button on it. You need to have the car on, but the engine not running. Then press and hold the button down for about 5 secounds. I don't think you can set it for differnt intervals.

My mercedes Benz cls 500 has service D due... Does that mean it needs an oil change? because i gave it an oil change about 10,000 miles ago


Mercedes uses a service schedule with the letters A-H to denote the relevent maintenance recommended.A is the basic oil service and H is the most inclusive.The intermediate letters correspond to proportional services.The service light should be reset at the completion of the service.This can be done via interface or using the controls and menus on the steering wheel.The specific format for resetting is different for different years and models.Alldata is fairly accurate for reset guidelines,but is not correct on some.Make sure to use synthetic oil in all newer MB,especially with extended oil change intervals.

How to reset the change oil light on my 2002 bmw x5


Try this procedure and let me know if it does not work.

1. Ignition key in the "Off" or "0" position.

2. Press and hold the odometer button and turn the ignition key to the "Accessory" or "1" position.

3. Keep the odometer button pressed in until you see the following words in the display, "oil service", or "inspection" with "reset" or "re".

4. Press and hold down the odometer button again until "reset" or "re" flash.

5. While the display is flashing, press the odometer button again briefly but do not hold it down this time to reset the service interval indicator. After the display has shown a new service interval then "END SIA" should appear in the display for two seconds.

If the procedure fails the first time then repeat the procedure and it should clear the service interval indicator.

How to reset service A reminder 0n mercedes 220 CDI 08 model


Does this vehicle use the FSS system? If so:

-First remember to perform ALL of the procedures MB recommends at this service interval. Failure to do so may result in an unsafe condition.

-Do not use oil that hasn't been approved by MB for your vehicle unless the oil is cheap enough to justify sacrificing 90% of your engine's expected service life. This engine if fairly expensive, BTW.

-Turn the key to the on position.

-Press the buttons on the steering wheel to display the 'Basic' screen.

-Then, press the up arrow.

-Press the reset button near the left side of the instrument cluster.

Good Luck!!!

Service engine soon light on my 2002 nissan xterra came on at about 100,000 miles. What could be the cause


If it's the indicator that literally says "service engine soon", and not the check-engine light, then you have no worries. That's programmed to come on at set intervals to remind you that routine service may be due soon (oil change, inspection, tire rotation, etc). It's not an indication of failure. Failures will be shown by the check-engine light. That one is nothing to worry about. Your owner's manual should have a procedure to turn it off.

How reset service interval light (already changed oil, oil filter, etc)


the service interval "light " has nothing to do with emissions or a problem with the car . There is a rectangle slot on the dash cluster you just use your key and press it and it just resets the counter

How to reset 2001 Mercedes-Benz E 430?


hopefully you are maintaining your vehicle and having the proper synthetic oil installed in it. Since your vehicle is out of warranty you will only be cheating youself if you are just ressetting the indicater. On this version you must first put the key in position #2.. find the page on the cluster where it shows the odometer reading by using the page buttons on the steering wheel. Next using the arrow key scroll up untill you see the service interval portion i.e. A service past due... while that screen is showing you hold down the R button ( it should be located on the right side of the instrument panal towards the bottom). keep holding that button for approximatly 10 seconds. after that it will ask you if you would like to reset service interval. release the R button and press it to confirm. The interval resetting procedures are all very similar but certain models and years have different knobs and instrument clusters.

Oil Change Reset
A press of the OIL CHANGE RESET switch will allow you to
reset the oil life feature to 100% (or your Personalized Oil Reset
Percentage). After you have the oil changed, you must execute
the following procedure. Press the OIL CHANGE RESET switch
and hold for five seconds as the M/C counts down for five
seconds. After a successful reset the Message Center will display
“OIL LIFE RESET TO 100%.” If you have established a
Personalized Oil Reset Percentage, the display will show that
percentage instead of 100%. To ensure accurate oil life
indicators, perform this reset procedure only after an oil change.
Your Personalized Oil Reset Percentage allows you to establish a
smaller oil change interval than the manufacturer’s
recommended interval. To establish your Personalized Oil Reset
Percentage perform the following procedure:
1. Press and hold the OIL CHANGE RESET switch and press
the RESET switch while the display is still counting down
the 5 seconds to reset. The display will change to “START
OIL LIFE AT XXX%.”
2. Press the OIL CHANGE RESET switch until the displayed
percentage is the Personalized Oil Reset Percentage that you
desire. Your choices are 100%, 90%, 80%, 70%, 60%, 50%,
40% and 30%.
