Reset Service Indicator Light

Any body here know how to reset the service indicator on my Merc C200 Kompressor 2001 (W201), so I do not need to go to the stealership for service? Much appreciated.

Yeah, it says I got 400 miles until Service A or some crap. I need to reset this before it gets overdue.

PS, because I'm not a total c&ck, look up FSS reset.

DONT RESET THE LIGHT IF YOU DIDN'T DO THE OIL CHANGE

Turn key to on position (the position right before it turns on your car)....hit the buttons to get to your menu on your dash that says "XXX miles until Service Y..."....hold the reset button till it is reset...

LISTEN TO E:

DON'T JUST IGNORE THIS...DO THE OIL CHANGE/MAINTENANCE REQUIRED...or we'll probably see you around more in a couple years...all for bad reasons too...

use the SEARCH FEATURE...it's very good...better to dig up a merged/old thread than to start new ones that junk up the place...specially if it's something that has been discussed several times (e.g. FSS Reset).

somewhere listed in the forum, use the search function...

which really sucks because people keep asking about oil change, and when I was actually looking for some info, a 1000 matches came up... if people would just stop asking...

Turn the key to on position (don't turn the engine on) and use your steering wheel buttons and click til you get A service or B service at XXXX miles. Then hold the reset button that is located on the instrument cluster, near the temperature gauge (should be on the left side). A note will appear and it'll inform you to hold the button again for another 3 seconds to reset the service mileage. Good luck.

I tried resetting my service indicator as you mentioned from the previous thread but it only reset my mileage from the last start. The service B indicator remained. I have the Stealership do my oil change ($70) and I changed the cabin filter and completed the inspection myself. My brakes are still good to go. Is the stealership is the only one can do this? help..

Have the key turned to the "On" position (when all the electronics turn on) and go over to the screen where it tells you that "Service X in XXXX miles"...when you are at that menu...hold the reset button

Unhappy

Mann..it doesn't work...I contacted Escondido MB and I was told that I have to get my Service B with them to get it reset which I think is BS! or find an independent mechanic that has the computer to reset the message...That is $300 to be wasted...We the consumer should have the option and not to be stuck with STEALERSHIP to do our Service....I own a 5 Series BMW and never encounter such BS..I am thinking of getting rid of this car and get me new 3 Series....

please stff...it has been discussed. I was told that you may not need star diagnose to reset the Service A/B indicator. That's how I interpret your post, but if you were looking for information about the oil content reset, it automatically updates the content of oil.
