Mondeo Focus Transit Service Light Reset

Do you own a MK4 Mondeo, New Shape Transit or MK2 face lift Focus?

Do you do your own servicing or have had it serviced and still have the oil service light on?

Here are the instructions to switch off the service light:

THIS INFORMATION IS ONLY TO BE USED AFTER YOUR VEHICLE HAS BEEN SERVICED.

Turn the ignition on (engine not running but dash lights illuminated).

Turn the ignition off.

Press down both the Accelerator (Throttle) and Brake  peddles.


Turn the ignition on (engine not running but dash lights illuminated).

Keep both the Accelerator (Throttle) and Brake  peddles  held down for between 15 and 30 seconds.

Turn off ignition.

Release peddles.

Turn the ignition on (engine not running but dash lights illuminated).

Your service light should now be out.

    Hi We have a small issue with a mondeo. A light on the dashboard comes on and stays on. It is a car with skid marks behind it. Does anyone know what it is and how we get it off? Thanks

    • Hello Paul,
      Hope you had a good Christmas and New Year, if you have a traction control switch it is possible that has been pressed and turned of your traction control, failing that it could be one of a number of things I would advise getting the codes read, it will probably be a wheel sensor.

      Thank you

    That’s really handy to know. Our mechanic did our servicing and the light is still on. I had a look around and there are some great tip on your website.
    Thank you.

    • Hello Dale,
      It still baffles me how a garage/mechanic can carry out a service and not be able to reset the service light. Thank you for the comment.

      Regards
