Removing the battery cables and resetting the computer is never wise on a Mercedes. You can inadvertently reset the throttle sensors and cause drivability issues. There is a way to reset the maintenance light through the instrument cluster. Here is one way to do it:

There are a few different procedures depending on the features that you have. If this procedure did not work for your vehicle, there is a mobile app that has all of the reset procedures in it for every vehicle through this same link. Good luck, hope this helps.

Just had oil change done on my 2000 alero now my service engine soon light is on.I want to know what this means


It simply means that the service indicator was not reset when the oil was changed. If the oil was changed professionally, then resetting the service indicator is usually part of the job.

It's not just a reminder to change the oil, it's also there to remind you to check/adjust/lubricate/replace other items such as the air filter, oil filter, spark plugs, fuel filter, dampers (UK=shock absorbers) etc.

The service indicator is simply a dumb counter keyed to mileage and time elapsed and cannot sense when you have completed a service. Resetting the indicator requires a special tool so you'll need to take your car to a suitably equipped garage.

Service light comes on in 1995 940 sedan 4-cylinder. goes off after about 10 minutes. Is this a problem? Can it or should it be reset?


Service light comes on whenever the computer senses some problem with the engine, it can be a small problem with one of the sensors but it might also mean serious trouble. get the car diagnosed.

125 miles to service says the computer, what does this indicate? what part will need service? on my 2005 Chrysler Pacifica 3.5L V6 Touring?


this is telling you that the vehicle is due for minor service such as oil change and filters if you have already done this recently the service light needs to be reset for the new cycle generally a cycle is anywhere from 3000-5000 miles depending on manufacturer. take to dealer and have them reset it or your owners manual will walk you through resetting
