Resolved Question:

Hi
How do I reset my oil chainge light on my Vauhall Antara 2ltr diesel 2007

Hi


The display for the flexible service interval (time and kilometres) can be reset via the instrument assembly. The engine control unit communicates with the instrument assembly.

Manual resetting

Ignition OFF. The tachometer display must indicate the trip odometer reading.
Press and hold down reset button (trip odometer button)
Switch ignition ON and wait until the service interval display changes and keep the reset button held down for at least 3 seconds.
After 3 seconds, the tachometer display indicates the symbol with the maximum mileage, 34.000 km for petrol engine or 50.000 km for diesel engine.

The time counter in the instrument assembly is set to 24 months. The engine control unit receives a signal via the CAN bus and the "oil condition" is set to 100 %. The engine control unit and the instrument assembly are now reset.

    any help?
    Expert:  jon-t replied 4 years ago.

    If it wont reset through the instument cluster then it requires doing via the diagnostic plug at a dealers.

     

    I would ask the dealership to reset it for you, in most cases they will do it free of charge.
