services

Recently bought a AU XR6 (99 model) from a ford dealer in Perth. The vehicle was fully serviced prior to pick-up. A few weeks ago the service indicator on the dash lit up due to the fact we had just passed the 60,000 km.
The car however is still running perfectly, I have checked the oil and there is no problem, so therefore I am reluctant to have it serviced since it was done less than 4,000 km ago. I have seen on a mechanics wall the procedure to follow to remove the annoying spanner symbol and have it set for the next service option, but this was back in Perth. Was wondering if anyone has the procedure and could let me know, the Ford Dealers are reluctant in this satate to give out the info.
Cheers,
Roger.

As far as i can remember, you press in the odometer/tripmeter button, hold it in, and turn on the ignition (no need to start the car).

After 10 seconds or so, the service spanner light will go out, and it will restore your trip meter reading to whatever you had before...

Works on my EF, and as far as i can remember, the family AUIII as well...

Thanks, will give it a go tonight. For some reason Ithought it would be more complicated than that. Let you know tomorrow how it went.
