Hi all,
My relatively “new-to-me” 2011 RR has been on an annual oil change schedule new as it only sees about 4,000 miles per year. I changed the oil a month or so ago and now the service light has just come on. It is my understanding the service inidicator reset process requires LR specific diagnostic tools (GAP/RSW/etc.)

So, is there anyone in the local Portland, OR area with the proper tools that is willing to help me reset the service indicator in exchange for some beer?

Just picked up a 2010 HSE with 157k miles and I'm currently doing all the fluid services on it. I also need this reset if you find someone. If not, I'll probably look into buying a tool myself and doing it. I live in the Bethany area of Portland/Beaverton.

Thanks for the recommendation on the shop. I'll keep them in mind if I need serious help.

OP, I ordered the icarsoft LRII. It'll be in next week if you are still in need of a reset.

Thanks for the tip on a competent mechanic. If I find myself in over my head, I will know whom to call.

I had not heard of this particular scantool. I have been trying to figure out which tool to purchase. I cannot decide if I wish to pay the big bucks and get the IID Tool from GAP, or a spend a bit less for the iLand from Atlantic British...
However, the iCarsoft LRII at $150 from Amazon is almost too good to be true. I am still in need of the service light reset, but I'd also be curious to hear your thoughts on the tool.

I have the older style icarsoft VI tool for my GL350. Works pretty well for my needs. Pulls all the data I need for services and resets anything I've needed to as well. There is a company with them on closeout on eBay for $125. I bought one of those.

The scanner arrived today. It was new in box even though the auction said "used (other)." I asked before purchasing and they said they can't say they are new because they are closeout, whatever that mean. I'm leaving out of town for the weekend. I'll mess with it Monday when I return.

Actually I had a little time before the wife got home from work. I finished the update on it and then cleared the DTC's on the car and reset the service indicator. This model is quite a bit nicer than the old V1 I have for the GL350.

Thank for update and for the tip on the $125 closeout units. I think I am just going to order one of these. Then if I really find myself in need of more capabilities, I will spring for the IID tool.
Do you know if this unit will recalibrate the EAS? Its virtually certain that I will be replacing air bags at some point. It looks like this tool is a step up from a generic reader in that it can access most all of the LR specific modules. Just not sure if it is cable of tweaking things.

I'll check on the EAS reset when I get back. I was looking at the menus quickly and saw that besides the oil service reset there was a brake reset and a parking brake unjam service it will do. There were 5 or so reset/specialty menus besides just reading codes and data for all the different modules.

There is not a reset menu for anything in the air suspension. There is the brake ones I mentioned, some throttle ones, DPF for the diesels, steering angle, and service indicator reset. Otherwise it will read and clear a plethora of modules for data and DTC's.

Thanks for the further update. I still can't decide what to buy... I am pretty sure I will need to replace an airbag and recalibrate the EAS system in the future, which this unit will not do. Bummer.

Okay,,, so give this a try. This is for my old RR Sport but maybe it will work on an L322

Manual Reset Procedure:
1. Press and hold the trip reset button.
2. Turn the ignition switch on to the ignition position II (one position before starting engine).
3. If the SII (Service Indicator Interval) function is enabled the information display will flash 'SERVICE' for 5 seconds and then display 'SERVICE' constantly. If the SII function is not enabled the information display will show the normal odometer and trip information.
"4. If the trip reset button is released within 10 seconds of entering the reset mode
"5. If the oil service value is to be reset
6. If the trip reset button is pressed for 5 seconds the display will exit the reset routine.
"7. If the trip reset button is not pressed for more than 10 seconds
8. Turn the ignition off and then start the engine to verify the indicator has been reset.


As for a diagnostics tool, I LOVE my GAP IIDTool, I used it to fully inflate my air suspension when going offroading a couple of weeks ago. Made life easy and some points of the trailer where I may have scraped the under carriage no problem at all.

It has also helped me with little issues like diagnosing my heated seat..

Replacing a strut does not in any way impact height sensors, you do not touch them, they are not in any way attached to anything near the strut. Replacing a rear bag does not impact the height sensors either. There is no reason to recalibrate for basic strut or rear bag replacements.
