um,,,, just bought a 2011 passion coupe with 19K. Local GM dealer has changed oil (mobil 1) but did not reset the dash reminder screen. It now reads something a minus 700 days. Not too concerned as I have the receipts for the oil changes, still would like to know how to reset this. Help, any clues. Can't seem to find in the manual. :nerd:

I have always thought that newbs should be forced to read a certain number of threads and use the search feature numerous times before they can post.

Yeah it can be kind of tricky as it is a timing thing. I believe after the third time (try) it just ignores you. I usually try again the next day and it sometimes works on the first try.

I too had difficulties resetting the service indicator. I managed to do so about 1-year ago when I first bought my used smart... I followed the procedure referenced above, but it was a struggle.

Then just last month I needed to do so again. I followed the proceedure... did it many times... over the course of several weeks to no avail... then I discovered the secret!

Shhhhh... I'll share the secret if you don't tell anyone...

When you do the 'double tap' of the reset button... do so very quickly, not tap.....tap, but more like tap-tap.

Worked for me! :)
