Question: How do you reset the inspection mileage notifier?

The mileage to inspection shows 575, but everything has been tested at the 80,000 mileage interval. Next maintenance service is scheduled for 90,000. How do you reset this feature?

From the manual:

Without Tester


Service Interval Display (SIA)

Resetting the Service Interval Display:
A service that is due can only be reset using the S/R button via the SIA reset menu of the instrument cluster. Distance-based inspections (oil service or inspection) and periodic services can be individually reset after the minimum consumption quantity and/or minimum interval (days limit) specified in the coding data. A service counter provides information on resetting the Service Interval Display.

NOTE: The service counter is currently not used by the diagnosis.

Resetting the distance-based inspection with S/R button:

Ignition key position "0" (terminal 15 and terminal R OFF)
Press and hold S/R button
Turn ignition key to position "1" (terminal R On) Display: test function
Press button again > 5 seconds (skips test functions) Display: Service status SIA OIL SERVICE or INSPECTION and remaining distance display

The distance-based service is displayed with "Reset" when the coded minimum consumption quantity of 10 liters of fuel has been used and a reset is possible .
This makes it possible to correct an incorrect sequence of operations (oil service, inspection) as the result of an incorrect reset without having to wait until 1/5 of the consumption value is reached.
The distance-based service is displayed without "Reset" when the coded minimum consumption quantity has not been reached and no reset is possible.

To perform a "Reset", press the button for > 5 seconds. Display: Service status, "Reset" flashes for 5 seconds
Briefly press the S/R button during the flashing phase. The reset is performed. Display: The new status is shown for 5 seconds.

If no reset is required, do not press the S/R button. After flashing 5 times, the old status is displayed for 5 seconds.

After running through oil service or inspection, the status of the periodic service is displayed.
If the periodic service is not coded, End SIA is displayed for 2 seconds

Resetting the periodic service:

NOTE:

The sequence for resetting the periodic service is reached via the distance-based inspection .
Between individual resets of the periodic service, 20 days must have elapsed (can be coded).
The periodic service can be brought forward by up to 180 days if an oil service or inspection is due. This allows servicing jobs to be grouped.

With coded periodic service , the service status is displayed. The periodic service is displayed with "Reset" when the coded days limit is reached.
To perform a "Reset", press the S/R button for > 5 seconds. Display: service status flashes
Briefly press the S/R button during the flashing phase. The reset is performed. Display: The new date is shown for 5 seconds.

If no reset is required, do not press the S/R button. After flashing 5 times, the old date is displayed for 5 seconds. Then
Display: End SIA for 2 seconds

If the days limit for reset was not reached , press the S/R button briefly. Display: End SIA for 2 seconds

By Zach Bowman For those who suffer a daily commute through heavy traffic, your vehicle's braking system can bring thousands of pounds of metal, plastic and empty Starbucks cups to a stop hundreds of times before you get to work. It goes without saying that these pieces wear out, but they do so slowly, meaning you may not notice they need attention until ...
