Hello and welcome to justanswer.com

 

You need to call up the service items numbers to determine which service you need. Here is the procedure to call up those items and then clear the light. Let me know which number item you need so I can tell you what service is due.

 

Service Item Menu

To determine the actual "Service Items" required (Serv. 1-20 and additional work), you must call up the "Service Menu" in the multifunction display.

Calling up the service item menu
