    or

    *Switch off ignition.
    *Press right hand button on dash and hold while switching on ignition.
    *The display should now read SERVICE!
    *Immediately press and hold the left hand dash button until SERVICE! is cleared from the display (some cars you need to twist to the left instead).

    Hi, thanks for replying. When you say 'right hand button' what do you mean?

    The buttons used to reset your milage counter, and adjust the clock.

    what ebay code did you buy?

    Cant remember, will have to dig it out. I do recall when i first bought it 2 years ago i wanted it serviced as part of the dael and the garage were having trouble resetting it.

    Will let you know if it works!
