    My car went to the garage to be serviced last Thursday, I got it back Friday all done, The service display shows ----- dashes instead of a number of days or miles to service. I looked in the manual and followed the instructions for a manual reset of service display. Still only showing dashes. There are no stored fault codes, so any ideas what is going on?

    If I remember corectly, it will take a few days or few hundred miles for the car to decide, (based on how you drive), when you are next due a servive. Be patient, it will come to you.

    Deffo the case - I had the same concern, the garage told me it would take a while, after 300 miles mine still hadn't reset so I called the garage and on 301 miles it came up just to make me look silly - grrr

    Just be glad it's blank, numbers just remind you that the cost of another service is getting closer all the time....
