Hello,I will be glad to try and assist you with this,Welcome to Just Answer.


Here is the procedure on how to reset the service reminder indicator.Make sure you are in the vehicle with all doors closed:

Insert key in ignition with all doors closed and you in the drivers seat
Turn key into position "2".(second click on)
Within the first 4 s after turning key into position "2".
press reset button for trip counter twice within one second.(this is the button on the instrument cluster that you would use to reset the odometer trip mileage)
The display for the service request is thus activated for 10 s.
Within these 10 s turn key into position "0"(off). The service request continues to be displayed.
Press reset button for trip counter and hold pressed.
Turn the key into position "2".
Continue to hold reset button for trip counter pressed (about 10 s) until the signal sounds and the new start distance appears in the display.

This should reset your service display.
