Question about Hilti Drills
Hi. It all depends on the age of it as there are 2 different types of electronics fitted to the TE76.
If you have an early model, the service light came on when the brushes were worn or it was in need of a service. Check your brushes 1st. then to reset the light, simply pull the trigger and hold it untill it resets.
If you have the newer type then you will need to reset the service light by attaching a data reader to the service light. this data reader plugs in to a PC, you will also need the HILTI ODA Software to go with it. Basicaly you need to send it back to hilti to have is serviced and reset. if your machine is less than 2 years old, this is FREE. just phone hilti and ask them to collect it. they will pick it up, service it and get it back to you in 3 working days. if you not sure how old your machine is simply phone Hilti and ask them, quoting the serial number. this is etched into the plastic on the left side of the machine underneath the white writing on the motor housing. Good Luck

You did not mention which model it is. Some of Hilti's hammer drills have a theft protection where it has to be scanned by a preprogrammed key. If the tool is activated it will work until unplugged for 20 minutes then it will not work again until scanned by the key.

Take all the screws from the handle to the motor housing out and unplug handle. While holding the trigger in the on position plug in power cord and still holding trigger remove plug, reassemble and try it. Sometimes you have to plug in and then squeeze trigger and hold it and then unplug but either one should work. If not you might have a switch problem. Let me know if you need more help and if I have helped you would you please rate this response accordingly. Thank you.
