On the screen i get service overdue what dose that mean???


The "service overdue" is a mileage based service reminder. It means you need to change the oil and perfirm whatever other service is recommended for your mileage. If you're up on all your service and the reminder is there it's very likely that whoever did the service didn't reset the reminder. Here are a few instructions on how to reset the reminder yourself: http://forum.bmw5.co.uk/topic/48051-how-to-reset-service-due-indicator/

HOW DO I RESET THE 'MAINTENANCE NEEDED' LIGHT?


SERVICE INTERVAL REMINDER
If equipped with a service reminder flag, the oil and oil filter service interval reminder flags will activate after every 7500 miles of operation. To reset indicators, insert ignition key into slots below indicator flags at lower right corner of instrument cluster. Push key in until reminder window changes from Red to Green.

The scheduled maintenance light has turned on. What do I need checked/replaced?


For the above head computer display, press the STEP button until you see the screen indicating that there's 0 miles remaining for scheduled maintenance. Then press and hold the reset button until that value returns to it's default state. This alarm is simply a mileage count down alarm to remind you of oil changes, air filter changes, etc. Resetting it will clear the alarm.

My 2001 cadillac deville the service engine soon light comes on and the computer from the parts store said it was related to the air pump or hoses any ideas?


hi, well i would have to disagree with the computer, all this is actually telling you is that you have a service due, what this means is, when you take it to a garage and get a main service like, plugs, leads oil, brake checks and adjustments, transmission fluid change, filters changed, ect ect, the service interval is reset to a certain mileage , when it is coming up for the next service, it will remind you of this again when you get close to the end of the mileage required, ie, if you have a service every 15,000 miles, it will be reset to 15,000 miles, but when you get to, lets say, 2,000 miles left to go before next service, this will then come on and inform you that you have only 2,000 miles left before your next service, i hope i have explained that correctly for you..

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.

Normal 20,000 mile service, what is done?


T Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0cm 5.4pt 0cm 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0cm; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} he 20,000 mile service is a minor service. This service generally involves an oil and filter change , tire rotation
and a safety inspection. While changing the oil, the mechanic will be performing visual inspections of the brakes, belts and hoses inspecting for any fluid leaks,, listening for any abnormal noises, and paying attention to any irregularities in the operation of the vehicle.
If you have your service at the dealership, have them check and perform any recalls on the vehicle.
Possible Repairs Needed at the 20,000 Mile Service It's not uncommon for your vehicle to need a brake pad replacement at this mileage, and on some vehicles the tires may need replacement.

Recommendations
  • We recommend considering replacement of the air filter every year or 12,000 to 15,000 miles.
Why this happens
  • If oil has contaminated the air filter, it should be replaced. Oil contamination may indicate a problem with the PCV system.
  • Air filters will need replacement more often in vehicles driven in dusty and sandy areas.

Just recently had an oil change and service and now my VW Polo 2001 indicated "Service Inspection". What does it mean?


As in, you recieved a lanp on the dashboard that says "service inspection?" If this is the case, it's likely corresponding to a major service interval, such as 15,000 or 30,000 miles. I honestly do not know the reset proceedure for that lamp, but if you have had all major systems checked recently (brakes, tires, belts, hoses, fluid changes/checks) I wouldn't worry too much about it. It's telling you to see your authorized dealer for a glorified oil change. the Stick
