You can't!

You have to go to the dealer to get this done. Also remember that once the dealer has reset the indicator you will be driving for up to 1000 miles before the - - - - - - - resets itself. It takes this time for the computer to analyse typical driving conditions and your driving style both of which affect the next service interval.

Alternatively you could consider purchasing something like this if you are mechanically minded and want do it yourself.

I just purchased a 2005 Porsche Boxster with 13000 miles from a Chevy dealer. They supposedly did a basic service before delivering the car. On my way home I noticed a message on the dash that said...


Try this procedure. Porsche can be hit or miss with reset procedures. Sometime a Porsche scan tool is needed.

1. Enter the vehicle and make sure that all doors are closed.

2. Push the odometer reset button while turning the ignition key on.

3. Continue holding down the odometer reset button for approximately 10 seconds until the "Service Reset" message appears in the information center.

4. Release the odometer reset button and press the reset button on the bottom of the wiper stalk.

5. It may take a few attempts with this procedure.

6. If the light is not reset, then a Porsche compatible scan tool will be required to reset it.

Ive just bought myself a 2001 Porsche Boxster. Im wondering if the timing belt has to be replaced occasionally as with other cars. Are ther any other maintenance items? Thanks

If you have a rubber-based belt, yes. You did not specify which motor you have, but all rubber- based belts have a lifespan. Usually, this is one job that is chaper for a dealer to handle due to the tools necessary.

What does the wrench warning light mean on a 2005 for escape

It means that there is some scheduled maintenance due to be done based on the number of miles that have been driven. There should be another display giving a letter or number which indicates the maintenance due. Look under maintenance in the owners manual.

The maintenance required light is on in my 2005 toyota corolla S, what does this mean?

It means you need to get your oil changed, or they didn't reset it after your last oil change.

The car wont start. it blinks a lot of lights makes clicking

I had these problems on my 2005 911 when the battery died. Apparently when it goes IT GOES. I had no problem with the battery until this time and then suddenly it was dead.

I've heard since that this is common on Porsche 996 when the battery is dead and then is should also be the case with the 986 Boxter.

I removed the old battery and left the car without a battery for at least 30 minutes (while doing some other maintainance). Put a new battery in and no problems after that. On most cars if you disconnect the battery for like 15 minutes the maintainance computer resets its self and all warninglights should dissapear unless there is a real fault, then the appropriate light should come back on!

Good luck.
