  • HOW TO reset the insp indication

    The insp indication is displayed when a preprogrammed number of miles or time has passed since the last service. Some times it is displayed even if the car is in top notch condition so you might want to remove it.
    So here goes...

    Put the key in the ignition without turning it. Keep the odometer reset button pressed for about 30-40 seconds (could be less but just to make sure...) then whilst holding the reset button turn the key to ON position (1 position before starting the engine)... hold the button pressed for another 30-40 seconds and start the engine... you can now leave the reset button.
    Oh look... the irritating thingy has disappeared.

    Hope this helps someone in here.

    EDIT: Forgot to mention that somewhere I read a sorter way to do it, but I have not tried it myself (can't really as I don't have the indication on mine right now) so you might want to try this first and report here if it did the trick.
    1.With the key in hold the odometer reset button
    2.Turn the ignition on without letting go of the odometer reset button
    3. The indication will blink a few times and will then disappear.

    Shorter, but tried that and it didn't work - that was the 'traditional way to reset it' lol

      I had this on my 04 plate astra sri. Going back to the first method just before you turn the ignition on press the brake pedal down and keep it depressed and it should reset.

          As Robbo says, you do need to press the brake pedal in, the other way does not work. Tried it last night. Also the longer you hold the odometer button in will vary the time left until next service, so you can set it yourself, (found this out by accident)

                    Just tried it with no luck. How do you reset it if your car has keyless?

                          yes, they probably forgot to reset it. Its just a reminder.

                          Just done this after doing a 35k service,

                          1) Put the key in the ignition without turning it.
                          2) Press and hold odometer reset button pressed for about 30-40 seconds
                          3) Whilst holding the reset button press and hold the brake pedal
                          4) Still holding the odometer reset and brake, turn ignition on
                          5) I counted to 20, let the trip go, started engine, and the display flashed 19k, (so presumably 1 sec per thousand miles)

                          The reminder has now disappeared. Tried to do it again to set it to 5k, but it wouldnt work (But as said, its only a guide, i know myself when i service my car)

                          Hope this helps
