owners manual

My owners manual is in German I believe. I don't read german. If you do maybe you could answer my question? How do I reset the service symbol for the 2006 Sartfortwo.

My search showed the below methods and it may depend on year. Could try both since it shouldn't hurt at least.

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

Method 2

Switch on the ignition to position 1

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

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

Switch ignition on

Keep the instrument cluster button held down for another 10sec

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

Thanks, StevenM1TX. Method one for maintenance counter indicator reset worked for me, too. It took me awhile to figure it out. I think the secret is to double tap quickly. Shellcaptain in K.C., MO.

Here's the exact steps that worked, mine's a June 08 Model.

Just changed my oil today.

1. Switch Key to I position and quickly double tap the left cluster button to display the flashing wrench.

2. Switch Key to O position, hold down left cluster button, switch Key to I for a sec, then start the car while keeping the cluster button held down until you see a double wrench icon (wrench will not flash indicating a reset). Done!

Was in the KC dealership several days ago to have my radio changed under warranty (came on every time the car was started). When they were finished, the service manager came to tell me and asked If I had changed my oil recently. I said yes (12K miles on it) He said I'll get rid of the reminder for you (wrench icon) and show you how to do it. He proceeded to go through the procedure menentioned on the provious posts. He had to do it several times before it worked, so If you can't get it the first time through, don't give up. Not all dealers are greedy gougers.
