    Resetting Oil Change Indicator

    I just got my Range Rover back from the normal 30,000 mile service and the dealer never reset the oil change indicator. I'm talking about the message that pops up with the mileage when you start the engine. It says something like "Oil Change: -203 miles". Something like that. Is there any way for me to reset this?

    Thanks.

    Re: Resetting Oil Change Indicator

    AFAIK, no. Only dealers, or LR specialized indy shops, can reset it by hooking up your car to their diagnostics software. Evidently the dealer forgot to do so. The RRS has a manual reset procedure detailed in the workshop manual using the trip reset button (and the manual reset is often disabled anyway, depending on the market), but I don't think it would work on the RR. If you want to give it a shot though, it can't hurt: viewtopic.php?f=5&t=16531&start=4

    Re: Resetting Oil Change Indicator

    I really appreciate it. What's funny is that when I got into my car after the service I noticed it and had my service advisor come out and bring my car around for them to reset as I waited. Looks like they did nothing. All they did was reset the mileage to zero and as soon as I left it started counting backwards again. So annoying.

    Thanks.

    Hi,

    A while ago I posted this:

    ""With ignition turned off, press and hold LH instrument panel button. With button depressed, turn key to position I. Continue to hold for five seconds until "SIA reset" appears, then release the button. It will flash "reset SIA 3600 kms" and "Inspection". Press the button for another five seconds until "Reset" appears.

    "Switch the ignition off."
    Hope this works ok for you. Haven't had to try it myself.

    Try putting your key in the number 2 position in ignition right before starting and keep it there for about 30 seconds this will reset some not all computers, also you can start your engine and turn steering wheel to right than left this will reset some computers in the car usually after los of power I.e. battery.

    hopes this helps..

    Re: Resetting Oil Change Indicator

    I used a slight varaiation of Norval's method
    Ign. off press LH button (trip)
    Hold until SIA Reset appears
    Release Button
    Press again until Reset SIA flashes
    Releases Button
    Press for another 5 sec. "SIA Reset" wil appear
    Release Button
    Switch Ign. off.
    I hope this is useful

    Re: Resetting Oil Change Indicator

    I just purchased a 2006 HSE this week (loving it!) and when I start the car, my display does not show anything about interval for the next service - just fasten seat belts. Does it only show when it gets closer to service time?

    Yes. That is normal. It only should when you are getting close to a service period. If nothing shows, you are all set and ready to go. Only reason I wanted to reset mine was because my dealership forgot to after the normal, routine service.

    Thanks.

    Ended up taking it to the local dealership here in Tampa and they reset it for me. I don't know why Fort Lauderdale Land Rover couldn't do it.

    As long as the dealership has time, it should only take about five minutes.
