    Hi new to this forum and this is my first post.. well.. here goes.

    My Service Due light has come on a few months after I have had my service done.. Will this be the fact that the garage may has just forgotten to reset the service clock or could it be that it needs servicing again?

    I'm thinking it may have been a forgetful MOT guy that has not reset the service clock but if you have any advice it would be great to hear from you

    How many miles have you done since last service?If it's up to 10K then you may need oil change and reset the service clock.

    so why would the garage have reset the service indicator when the light wasn't on?

    They would reset after every service was completed wouldnt they? :/ Lets say the miles until next service was 2000 miles away if they didnt reset it then it wouldnt calculate the next service due date correctly.. Am I right in this or at the wrong end of the stick completely?

    so you had the car serviced early before the car prompted you to? if so then more than likely the service schedule has not been reset and needs to be done. if you reset it now without changing the default values it will come up late on the next one. can be reset though vcds if you did want to do it yourself.

    Ohh right.. I was under the impression that every garage that services your car would reset the service clock/service schedule as it seems the logical thing to do. Thanks for that I will keep that in mind next time I have the car serviced so they reset for me :) thanks.
