Citroen Xsara Picasso Service Light Reset

How to Reset the Service Light Citroen Xsara Picasso

Recently I have had a few requests for Citroen Xsara Picasso Service Light Reset information from people who service their own vehicles.

Being a mobile mechanic  and auto diagnostic specialist  I could use the stock answer and say “I’ll have to plug it in for you”.

As you have no doubt seen through my other posts I do not believe in making things difficult for the home mechanic.
Here is the procedure:


Sit in drivers seat ignition off and handbrake applied.

Press and hold trip reset button.

Turn key to position two (ignition lights on engine not started).

Keeping the trip reset button pressed in you will notice your trip meter counting down.

When zero (0) is reached Release the trip button and start the car the service light (spanner symbol) should now be extinguished.

 

Please only use this information after your vehicle has been serviced

BMW 525i service light reset

 

Today I had a call asking how much I would charge to reset the oil/service light on a BMW 525i 2001 (E39) as the garage who serviced it had not done this, I know that some companies charge between £25 and £45 pounds to do this.


The good news is you can do it yourself as i explained to the car owner.

Here is how:

With the ignition off.

Press and Hold the trip meter button,

keep held in and turn ignition to position 1 this is  the first click the one before the ignition lights come on

Keep the button pressed in for about 5 seconds until you see “Oil Service” or “Inspection” with “Reset” or “Re” in the display.

(On vehicles with “High” cluster, you will also see the amount of fuel in litres remaining until next service).

Quikly release and Press the button again now hold for a further 5 seconds or until “Reset” or “Re” flashes.

While this display is flashing,quickly release and press the button again to reset the Service Interval.

After the display has shown the new service interval you should see END SIA” for about 2 secs.

Please note this procedure should only be used after you car has been serviced and i would qeustion any company who is unable to reset the

service/oil light either using diagnostic equipment or using this method after they have have serviced a vehicle.
