If you search for 'Reset service reminder' you will find

""" u press and hold the mileage reset button.next, with the button still pressed, turn the ignition 2 clicks (but dont start).release the mileage trip button, and turn the clock button clockwise which should reset the "service" indicator.

"""

Then put the car in neutral, push it 10m, open close door 5 times and then press the accelerator pedal.

It sounds like a combination to crack a safe

Hi

If it was easy to reset this reminder,
everyone would reset the warning as soon as it appeared and then forget to change the oil etc.

You could always buy a cable and VCDS, reset service reminder is on the second page I think.

On one of the early computerised Fords you did indeed have to open each door and press the courtesy light switch three times to reset the alarm.

I think is was a Capri and also if you removed the battery the engine would not start and the auto box was stuck in neutral with the doors all locked.

I used to work oppersite a battery supplier and the car was recovered to the main dealer following a new battery being fitted.

Had my 2006 T5 serviced yesterday at 67k. Service light came on from 60k? onwards and has been annoying me ever since.

Followed these instructions and THEY WORK!!!

Many thanks for your advise.

Then I tried the advise above...ie, pushing it 10 metres, opening the door 5 times pressing the accelerator pedal, doing a jig and hopping on one leg for 10 minutes. This, however DIDN'T WORK!!! lol
