    Service indicator on dash

    Hi
    I put the car in for a service yesterday and when i collected it they had reset the service interval indicator which now reads

    service due in --------- before it had a count down ie service due in 256 days or x amount of miles now it just reads
    service due in --------- do i have to reset this count down day and mileage indicator or will the engine management calculate this and correct it ?

    if so how do you go about this


    regards Noz
