How can I reset the service indicator in a 2005 Liberty?

I've just had a service done, and the garage forgot to reset the service indicator, so it beeps and displays "Perform Service" every time I start the engine... can someone let me know how to reset it? I don't have the time to run it down to the garage again just to get them to do it themselves.

more than likely need an OBD code reader, clear the code that is telling ECU to display light, if you or a friend doesnt have one you will need to take it back to garage

Are you talking about the console on the roof telling you that you need to perform service. If that is the case, you can just push (and maybe hold) the reset button. If that doesn't work, go through the menus of the evic and you should be able to reset it from there.

There's no light, it actually says "Perform Service" in the EVIC display above the rear view mirror. It know for a fact it doesn't need any special equipment to reset... I watched the guy at the garage do it once before when they forgot to reset it, but I didn't pay attention to exactly what he was doing

wantaCRDbad - you can't reset it from the EVIC. It's actually something to do with turning the ignition on while holding down one of the control stalks on the steering wheel, or something like that. Takes five seconds to do from the driver's seat if you know what you're doing. I guess I should have paid more attention when the guy did it before...

just look in the manual. Or if it isn't in there, I am sorry. I know of two other car manufacturers that I've looked in the manual on how to do it. Worked like a charm

They built models with out tham? That’s effing lame. Never the less, makes sure your doors are closed to. If they are open you won’t be able to reset it. At least you can’t on my WJ…
