Please do not contact me saying they don't work because they do if you do it right. Just doing everything in the right order isn't enough, timing is very important.
Resetting The Service Indicator
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. Does It Work On.... Stop right there, the video states
"works on all smarts, button placement varies between models".
So if it's a smart it will work. I really don't need to make a video for
each model do I? When the only difference is the position of 1 button!
It Doesn't Work
Yes it does.
Ok, Where Is The Button On My Smart?
Right, that's a more sensible question.
Service Reset Myths
Every now and then I get someone tell me some new bit of info about reseting the service light.
Just because they believed what they heard or they tried something different during
or before resetting the counter, they now believe that is the correct way to do it.
Myth 1 - The doors must be closed to reset the service counter. Proved wrong
Myth 2 - You can reset a "1 spanner" service but not "2 spanners". You'll need MB Star for that. Proved wrong
You can only reset the service indicator after doing 2000 miles from the last reset. Not sure on this one, why would you want to?
Please remember to get your car serviced properly, resetting the light doesn't mean your car has been serviced and you won't fool anybody when you come to sell it. I have only posted it here because there are a few unscrupulous rip off
merchants attempting to sell this info on EBay. Don't fund these cretins.
