That certainly is not true with the 451's and I really doubt that is true of the 450's.

URBAN LEGEND - if he is like most of us, after numerous attempts when if finally does reset you just don't know how, why and/or what was different??? :shrug:

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 :cool:
2012 Smart Car low end one without power windows. 43,000 miles. Has the counter going now in -26 DAYS
Did the oil and filter. Had the -26 and a TPMS popping up. Topped off tires to correct pressure. Friend was putting 32 all around.

I reset the light and was successful. However, the -26 DAYS is still counting. It's there on key on but does go away on starting or pushing button on right steering wheel stock. Only comes back on ever start up.

I also when I reset do not see the 10,000 miles I see some post.

How do I reset the count of the monthly minder?

Thanks for the help. New user here, do forgive me for my clumsy post.

If the -26 days is still showing up and you never saw the 10,000 miles, then you weren't successful in your reset.

It's all in the timing of the steps. Here is what works for me:

1. Turn key to position 1

2. As soon as the cluster shows "Smart," double click the button quickly
to bring up the maintenance indicator.

3. Release the button and turn the key off.

4. Quickly press and hold the button and turn the key back to position
1. This is while the cluster still has the maintenance reminder on.

5. Hold the button in until it resets to 10K.

Sometimes it works on the first try. Sometimes it takes a few days of perseverance.

Thank you. Going to try again. And also figured from further down that why mine says days and not mile is I never made it to miles for an oil change in a year.
Good web site. It had 2 wrenches on. That reset. At 43,000 what else was it calling for. Only thing ever done is oil and filter since 2012.
