Re: Getting Rid of the service spaner

.....when your car is in the "reds" (the turn of the key before it kicks over). Ten seconds or so should do it.

Re: Getting Rid of the service spaner

Using a large mallet & a punch carefully smash a neat hole first in the plastic then use the punch to break the bulb behind the spanner light.......

Re: Getting Rid of the service spaner

While ignition is off, press and hold odometer reset button.
Turn ignition to on.
Hold odomter reset button until you hear a beep or the wrench disappears.

These are not my instructions and I have not tried this, just something I found on the web and saved for future use (if I ever needed it). Hope it works.

1. My car does not have the spanner icon, so I do not have a use for those instructions.

2. Read what is under my name.

3. At least I got the quote code correct when posting.
