Perform Service Message?

I took my Mothers 96 GC to the dealer to have the oil changed and didn't notice until I got home that the service warning hadn't been reset. Is there a way I can reset it so she knows when to take it in? She's can't keep track of it anymore

Thanks,
Dave

press and hold the set button till the display starts to flash, then toggle though the stuff with the select button. Can't remember the sequence, ya just got to mess with it a little, cuz you'll probably accidentially change date trying to get it.

Maybe I was too lucky to buy a cheaper model that didn't have all those items.

Yet,

I'm feeling like helping out. Sarcasm directly implied.


Haynes Manual page 1-14...

Service Reminder resetting


28. Some models are equipped with a serivice reminder feature in the Vehicle Information Center (VIC). This feature deplays a reminder when an oil change serive is due to be performed. After serivce is complete, reset the service reminder using the following procedure:

a) Turn the ignition switch ON.
b) Momentarily press and release the SELECT button on the VIC.
c) Hold down the SET button for at least two seconds.
d) You will hear a "beep" and the number of miles to the next service will be indicated.


Hey, let me know if this works.

Thank you so much. I was having the same problem. I figured that this was something that I would be forced to go to the dealer to have them charge me $50 to reset.
Good to know it's not always that bad.

Not to be a wise a$$ but all that info on the VIC is in your owners manual.

I bought my car from my grandfather who had misplaced the owners manual. He thought he knew where it was, but after a couple of months of looking he still hasn't found it. I ordered a replacement manual a couple of weeks ago, but haven't been home yet to see if it has come in. And NEVER apologize for being a wise a$$.

Um, disconnecting the battery resets it too...
