Hi...I have a C180 ......year 1999...( last of previous model ).
I had it serviced by a non dealer mechanic, but he doesn't know how to
re-set the service due indicator, which shows in the dash as a picture
of a spanner and the number of miles due to the next service. Can
anyone tell me how to clear this.?.....thanks.
I have a C180 year 2000 (Last of the old model) and on page 81 of the
owners manual it says:
To reset the service indicator:
Turn the electronic key to position 2 in the steering lock and immediately
press the 0 button twice within one second. Turn the electronic key back to
position 0 in the steering lock. Press and hold the 0 button. Turn the
electronic key to position 2 in the steering lock. Keep the 0 button
pressed. The service indicator with the current remaining distance or
remaining period appears. After about 10 seconds, an acoustic signal will
sound and the service indicator with the new starting distance or starting
time appears for about 10 seconds. Release the 0 button
Hope this helps
