Hey guys,

Just a quickie ...how do I get rid of the Spanner (service) symbol on my odometer?

Is there a set procedure of buttons to push to get rid of it?

Cheers.

Hey.

Have a search around, or look in your glovebox manual for the specifics...

But its basically a matter of pressing the odometer reset for about 10 seconds. Easy as!

The spanner symbol on an AU doesn't mean "service the engine", it means "hit yourself with a spanner, you bought an AU".

or maybe "you are a spanner for buying an AU" and after 10,000km's it expects you to trade it in! :P

I wish that all my dash did was have a spanner stay on it!
Mine is now currently sitting at 700,000+ km's.
Nice when it jumps more than half a million km's in a split second, cause it kinda kills any resale... :lol:
