Reset Maintenance Interval

Try These Two Methods:Method 1

Switch on ignition to position 1

Select maintenance indicator within 4 sec. by double tapping the left instrument cluster button

Switch off the ignition to position 0 (off) within 10 sec.

Push and hold in the left instrument cluster button and switch ignition on

Hold the left instrument cluster button for another 10 sec

In that time, the spanner symbol on the LCD will flash and eventually reset

Method 2

Switch on the ignition to position 1

Select maintenance indicator within 4 sec by double tapping the left instrument cluster button, keep it held down on the second press.

Switch off the ignition to position 0 (off) within 10 sec

Switch ingnition on

Keep the left instrument cluster button held down for another 10 sec.

In that time, the spanner symbol on the LCD will flash and eventually reset.

PS Got This from SteveM1tx, it does work!!! Hope it helps
