How to get rid of wrench (service) icon in AU dash

Hi Guys,

I knew how to do this in the past but forgot. Can someone tell me how I can get rid of the wrench icon in the dash of an AU Series 1 XR6? Its the icon that serves as a reminder for the vehicle's regular servicing.

I know it has got something to do with turning the ignition to a certain spot and reseting the dash, but not so sure now. Please help guys!

Thanks in advance!

Mal

Before you turn the car on hold the trip meter reset in. Then turn the car to the on position (when you can see the wrench) and keep the button in till it dissapears. Did mine last week
