@  FlossyTheSmart : (21 November 2014 - 09:21 AM) probably under the "Engine" section
@  FlossyTheSmart : (21 November 2014 - 09:20 AM) Read out is likely under Systems>N3/9 (EDG control unit) > Actual Value Indicator, somewhere.
@  FlossyTheSmart : (21 November 2014 - 09:18 AM) As in, configurable, or just a read out?

@  Francesco : (18 November 2014 - 12:00 PM) cost me close to $300 to tow from the Canadian border post at Hemingford to my driveway (80 km), and my car was up on blocks for two weeks while I tracked down and resolved the issues.
@  Francesco : (18 November 2014 - 11:58 AM) jurist? During
@  Francesco : (18 November 2014 - 11:58 AM) Yep, mine started acting up jurist a January thaw on a long steady drive through the country, then the car refused to move on a slushy day on a long steady drive on the same roads a week later. The slushy brine is both conductive and tenacious.
@  FlossyTheSmart : (18 November 2014 - 11:40 AM) That's probably it.
@  KurtMan : (18 November 2014 - 11:21 AM) So my friend with soldering skills is going to help me after work... I'm confident this will solve the problem. First slushy day we have so it must have splashed up there and shorted out.

For the DIY oil change, to reset the service indicator:- 1. Switch on ignition. (But do not start car!) 2. Select maintenance indicator (so it's in the display) within the first 4 seconds. 3. Switch off the ignition within the display period of 10 seconds. (Maintenance should remain in the display). 4. Push the service button (button on the left of the cluster) and hold it while you switch the ignition on. 5. Hold the service button depressed for another 10 seconds. After that the oil change interval display is reset. 6. After completing this task, the display shows the remaining distance (startup distance) for the next maintenance interval. NOTE>>>>>>you must get the 2nd step at 2 seconds, shut off and at 2 seconds turn back on while holding the reset button and continue to hold in until wrenches dissapper then shut off

Thanks, shung. Does each reset alternate between the single and double wrenches on the display? Y'know, in case someone like say, a part-time DIY-er, who may want to be charged for an A service, rather than the more expensive B service...

Yes, the second reset I did at 16505 now shows a single wrench. Regarding the part-time DIY, watch for my upcoming thread on that topic.

I'm planning a long trip here in a couple of weeks, and I want to change the oil before I go - even though the interval is not up yet (it will be before I get back). If a person wants to change their oil before the indicator comes on, do we still have to reset it, so that it doesn't come on a few thousand kilometres later? It would seem so, but what is the general consensus?

Reset it at every oil and filter change, as that is what the computer is really counting down for you. The rest of the fluff items on the service are not a big issue and don't need to be "counted down to". The oil reminder is what you are concerned with.

That only makes sense. Is there anyone here changing their oil at regular intervals, like, say, every 5,000 kilometres? Once I get above 30,000, I might start doing that.

Now that I am doing the oil changes myself, I will probably change the oil every 6,000 Km's. If you don't do anything to your car except change the oil frequently it should last you forever.

In Europe... The standard is 12,500km... Here it is on that variable system going from 8,000km to just a touch over 10k... With our "champagne of motor oils", there should be no problem keeping it at a 10k interval... 5 or 6k seems more like something if we ran conventional oil... Eddie

You're right, Eddie. We are using some of the best oil available to us in North America in our cars. I am just thinking about the turbo more than anything else. It's not like the oil changes cost a lot for these cars as well - the filter is what, about $8.00 or so, and then 3 litres of oil is about $25.00 - it's not a huge cost outlay. Anyhow - it's good to know that we can adjust the service interval ourselves, and therefore take care of the servicing ourselves. I doubt very much if you could say the same thing about a new BMW or Mercedes...

I'm planning on running 10K OIC on my smart. I'm a big believer in oil analysis to determine wear and oil condition. After this interval I'll be sending my oil in for a look. If things look good, I may even extend beyond 10K. Many people run top quality synthetic oil and change it at 5K, which just waists oil, money and time. For an interesting article on oil analysis, engine wear and extended oil intervals, check out this site, http://neptune.space...s/oil-life.html . BTW, running Castrol Syntech 0W30 in my Villager mini-van, I go 16K km on the interval with no problem. Oil analysis says even at that point that the oil and filter (Napa Gold) is OK but that is when I drop the oil and change filter.

I just noticed, that this is way off topic and I know Eddie hates that. :BlahBlah:

Double-press the button so that a wrench is lit up as well as the kilometerage remaining until your next service. :)

Does anyone know if the "U.S. ized" cars can be reset by Shung's process? I haven't been able to get it to reset. The single wrench came on at 10,000 miles (showing 100 mile increments leading up to that number). Now it is showing negative numbers - I'm at -1000 miles. I've tried several times - when I get to #5 in Shung's instructions the wrench will go out momentarily and the -1000 will go away. But it shows up again later when starting the car.

I did the same, but I didn't get a wrench showing??? Also I have no maintance indicator, except the one on the left side as you mentioned??? If I was sucessfull, how do I know...the odometer reads at 7,500 km but I just changed my oil, and I wanted to reset? Disregard, I think I solved it with the double click of the button, the wrench came up and as they say, the rest was history... Thanks for the help!!!!

Mine has been flashing for a while and was showing -3100 km today and there was always a wrench beside the flashing -3100 km for at least 20 sec. everytime I started the car.I tried to reset but it didn't work, so I tried the double click and now finally got a double wrench logo with the 8000 km new interval, my car has 11,695 km on it and I had replaced the oil at 9200 km because I had a long drive of 2500 km when the car was at 7300 km, took it to Vegas and replaced the oil when I got there.I'm not sure how I got it to change from -3100 km to 8000 km but I was double clicking, turning ignition on and off and on again and all of a sudden two wrenches and 8000 km showed up.Thanks, BTW it took me almost 1 hour to find this thread, I was about to start a new thread asking that question again.AlainStill in Vegas, getting a lot of attention driving the Smart.

Those are the instructions that I've used over a dozen times in the past 3 years. Keep trying. Sometimes it takes a few attempts. Yesterday at the dealer I watched one of the smart techs battle this for about 5 minutes. He eventually got it.Good luck!

It works for me, but one time I tried it I tried to change it to the "B" service and then back to the "A" service but every time it stayed on the "A" service. Hasen't had success with change it back and forth from one mode to another.Also, how many times should you try it? Basically, because every time that you turn on the car the glow plugs start up and they may drain your battery. Or do the glow use very little power; I am assuming not.

You want to get the -3100 in the display. When this is on the display you probably have 1 or 2 wrenches to the right of fuel gauge. Once this is in the display (hopefully within 4 seconds of turning on the car) then turn the ignition off. Next push and hold the button in while you turn the ignition back on. The display should flash for a second but then the display should show -3100 again, keep the button held in for about 10 seconds and then it will change to 8000kms. If it shows anything else in the bottom portion of the display it is not going to work.Try it now and see if that helps you out. If not let me know and I will try to give a more detail set of instructions. It doesn't work everytime for me but I can get it to work. I don't think it matters but a couple of times after it is not working I will press the unlock button on the key before starting the entire process.LaterARTZ

Don't worry about the wrenches. The fact that you got it reset to 8,000 kms is all that really matters. You can remember when it comes due whether it is an A or B.

Hey Ben, there is the old adage, "if at first you don't suceed, try, try again"It usually takes a couple of tries for the reset to work. Also, the timing of the steps is touchy.MG

Ok Smarties, I changed the oil at Lubexx in St. Albert and I am trying to reset the maintenance indicator. However my numbers coming up are -42. I get the flashing wrenches at the start of the procedure. Turn off the ignition, then turn on the ignition while holding down the reset button just reset the fuel status back to zero. I have tried the process a half dozen times. Dealing with a 450 2006 smart pulse with 20,000 km. I have gone through the reset procedure about a dozen times. What should it look like when it is properly reset? The Smart owners manual talks about 500 km to go to oil change etc.Rocky

What is the instrument cluster (service) button? Is this the one for re setting the trip meter? or is there a hidden one that I cannot see?

No, you're correct -- it's the one on the left oft the housing that you use to cycle through the trip meter, odometer, fuel and temperature.

Update for G&K gassers..I spoke with ed the tech guy at G&K and he said follow the Canadian instructions, but you must get the first step at 2 seconds, shut off and at 2 seconds turn back on while holding the reset button and continue to hold in until wrenches dissapper then shut off..IT WORKED!!!!!YIPPIE..even with these instructions it worked on the 13th try....good luck it can be done

I just changed my oil and it took longer to reset the service indicator. The most important part is what SCHMART said in the post above

you must get the first step at 2 seconds, shut off and at 2 seconds turn back on while holding the reset button

When I did it within 2 seconds it worked first try. Hopefully, this will help someone else.

I guess I was quick and lucked out the last time when I reset my service indicator. This time I spent nearly as much time trying to reset it as I did with the actual oil change. :banghead:

Sure enough, I came back to this topic to express my frustrations, read the most recent posts, tried it again using the TWO SECOND RULE ---- and found that it worked perfectly. :)

I'm wondering if the original post in this topic by shung can have an 'Edit' note attached to the bottom of it to indicate that steps 2, 3 and 4 should each be done within 2 seconds. It might save a lot of members a lot of grief. Moderator??

Thanks SCHMART for posting the solution.
