TRYING TO RESET E350 2006 "SERVICE C EXCEEDED


I don't think it can be reset without a dealer spec scan tool. Has the service been done? if so, the servicing garage should have reset it. Oil Changes are not "service" If it has not been done, have it done. If the service garage does not have the proper tools to reset the service indicator, they don't need to be working on MB.

LMy 2009 Chevy aveo oil lamp and wrench stays on,what does that mean?


I believe it means that your car is due for an oil change. Your cars computer is programmed to turn that light on every so many miles to alert you and then after you change to oil there is a procedure to reset it. You owners manual should tell you this information of what the light means and how to reset it. If you do not have the manual call your local dealer and ask the service dept. what it means for sure and they should tell you over the phone and if it's a good dealer they will tell you how to reset it.

I think you are right. Contact a dealer and they will give you the precise exact answers you need and maybe even print the sheet with reservice requirements on it for you. They always try to earn new customers in service

I need to know how to fix the oil change light after a oil change on 2009 mercury grand marque. The panel on the car always says ''change oil soon'' but the oil has already been changed.


Hi!!

The person that changed the oil should have resetted the light.

Just drive to an AutoZone store, ask for somebody to check your vehicle computer codes, once they check them up, ask them to reset the change oil soon light, they would do this at no charge. This is a free service they offered to all their customers.

Don't forget to rate this post. Good luck!!

How to reset change oil soon measage, travers 2009


99% of all vehicles with any messages have to reset at the dealer.
mine came on and it was reset for $13.00.
thats so they can let you know also about the oil change face to face and then they convince you to have it done.

For the last several days that I have started my car, I have gotten the warning chim for Oil Change Required, Contact Dealer. I have put approximately 1,500 miles since my last oil change. I have 5,600...


If the oil change warning was not reset at the previous oil change it's letting you know about the 5,000 required change, and it will continue to chime until reset. See your manual or dealer for reset instructions.

Same dillema, how do I reset the Service B message in a MB ML350?


If you are turning in the vehicle in 3 months I wouldn't worry about changing the oil. In the old days, they use to say change it every 6,000 miles and then as a way to make more money, they started saying every 3,000 miles. But if you really want to reset your computer, unplug your negative cable from your battery terminal and leave it off for five minutes. On a mercedes, they are very advanced piece of work, but doing this may give you another message regarding losing power, so do this at your own risk.
