Apparently, (like the fog light update), some smarts have a bug in the code meaning they can't be reset using the button press method and they now have a bit of software to do it.

That sounds like the problem that I have, thanks for mentioning that as I was thinking I was getting a little slow in the head. :eek: I'm waayyyy past my reset time.

I had a terrible time re-setting my clock. Those of us Hoosiers are somewhat new to this whole idea of "Fall Back" anyway, and then I couldn't even take care of the clock issue. I did finally get it done, but what a pain!

At first, I tried doing it while I was in a hurry. Meaning, while driving. Bad idea! I had to stop and go around twice until I got the time right.
Good news: going forward next Spring will be really easier!

Maintenance indicator reset (service wrench)

Now that I've reached 10,000 fun and trouble free miles, I have the problem of getting rid of the cute little service wrench. Over the past two days I've tried the two methods listed by evilution with no luck. Has anyone got a better idea or had problems resetting. My dealer is about 125 miles away.

Just wanted to kick out this tip:

if it doesn't work the first time, wait a full minute with the key off before trying again.

(it might not take a full minute, but if you wait you will be succesfull with the correct timing on the button pushing and key turning. it is quicker than you think.)

resetting maintenace indicator

If your maintenance indicator does not reset using the regular procedure. you need to take your vehicle to your smart dealer so it can be reset using the scan tool. If the maintenance indicator is on and your vehicle has less than 10000 miles, the instrument cluster has to be reprogrammed. It is an easy procedure, and only takes about 5 minutes.

Thanks EVILUTION!!!!

I just reset my "spanner". Used Evilution's NEW Encyclopaedia link and instructions:

Quote:
Method 1
  • Switch on the ignition to position 1.
  • Select maintenance indicator within 4 sec by double tapping the instrument cluster button.
  • Switch of the ignition to position 0 (off) within 10 sec.
  • Push and hold in the instrument cluster button and switch ignition on.
  • Hold the instrument cluster button for another 10sec.
  • In that time, the spanner symbol on the LCD will flash and eventually reset.

Did my 10K service myself and it took me few tries, but I did reset the service light with help of Evilution Guide.


Thank you.
