When the service type appears, you can use the vehicle's control system to view a list of the service items (1-20) that need to be performed at the called for service type. These Items are based on how the vehicle was driven.

Perform the Service Item Menu:

  • Switch on the ignition. The standard display of the control system appears.
  • Press button UP or DOWN on the multifunction steering wheel until the maintenance service indicator appears in the multifunction display.
  • Press the reset button for about five seconds. The "Service" menu appears in the multifunction display.
  • Select the "Items" menu with the + or - button.
  • Press the Prev Menu button.
  • The service indicator now displays the Items that need Service menu.
