Hi there. I have this Ml320 and is currently giving me the " spanner sign with 500,100 and 0" before showing the odometer reading. I wondering what the message means and will be glad if I can get help from your experts.
The spanner or wrench you are seeing indicates how many miles are remaining before your vehicle is supposed to have the oil changed. Normally this is about a 10,000 mile interval and may be reset after an oil change by following this procedure...
Do the following steps:
Move start switch to position "2".
Within the first 4 seconds after moving the start switch to position 2,
press the reset button for the trip counter twice within one second.
The display for the service request is activated for about 10 seconds.
Within these 10 seconds, move the start switch into position "0". The service request continues to be displayed.
Press the reset button for trip counter and keep it pressed.
Move the start switch into position "2".
Continue to hold the reset button for the trip counter pressed
until the signal sounds and the new start distance appears in the
display (it takes about 10 seconds).

Fill up the tank. Record the current odometer reading,Drive until the fuel gauge shows about half a tank. Fill up the tank and note how many liters went in. Subtract the recorded odometer reading from the current odometer reading. Divide by how much fuel you just put in. The result is km/l.
The repair and your current problem might not be related and perhaps not even the spanner light is related.
If the repair was only a short time ago you should give the repairer a call in the first instance in case the problem is related.
An engine piston does not develop a hole for no reason. Pistons are strong and reliable and something else must have happened, something fairly serious, to have caused a hole.
Either the ingress of foreign matter due to bad or incorrect maintenance, something within the engine broke or maybe serious overheating within the cylinder occurred.
Replacing the piston without discovering what caused the trouble in the first place (and curing it) would be a very bad repair.
If it was serious overheating that caused the hole, the overheating could have been caused by preignition or a faulty engine management system and in that case your present problem might be connected to the original cause, though your current problem could be a faulty starter motor or immobiliser.
To discover the exact meaning of the spanner light you should read your vehicle handbook.
Its the service light, and its counting down the mileage to the service point, after a service it is reset with a distance till the next service. It can be reset by pushing the button for the trip reset button and hold on while you switch the ignition on, the number will rise to a preset number.
are you saying that the odometer does not roll over the miles and that the speed of water does register the current speed? Usually if the odometer is not working it is a problem inside the speedometer unit in the dash.If neither is working then you may have a broken connection to the unit on the transmission that sends electrical information to the speedometer.I hope this helpsregards
1) Turn your key to the on position (dash lights will come on) 2) Push the odometer button until the total miles are displayed and keep holding it. 3) Turn the key Off, and then back ON while holding the odometer button in.Don't let up on the button. You will notice the odometer reading shows dashes and they will sequence off. After they sequence off, the Maint Reqd light will go off. Release the odometer button
Place the key into the #2 position (do not start engine). With the oil remaining light showing on the odometer, press and hold reset post for 10 seconds until it starts blinking, then let go. Press it again for 5 seconds and it should reset back to 100%.
I just checked on that one, they said to disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, and the lights will reset? I have heard this but never had to try it. Your spanner is scheduled maint and the oil light you know. And they both should be resettable. Hope this helps.
Spanner means that it is due for a service, it should show for a period of time when you start the car and revert back to miles after a period of time, the length of time the spanner remain gets longer as you go more miles overdue for service. When you get it serviced the mechanic will reset the spanner/ Service interval
Sound like there is too much oil in the vehicle, check the oil level with this vehicle on a level surface(if the engine was running prior to checking) let the car sit with the engine off for about 3-5 minutes before you check. If there is too much oil just drain enough to make it to the right level, this should take care of your problem. Good luck and thanks for using FIX YA
