    Key out, press odometer reset = miles to next service
    Never tried doing that, then putting ignition on

    However, 36000 to next service looks wrong
    Mine starts at 31000 and as far as I am aware is the longest service interval VX do on the Vectra

    Just noticed that

    Spanner = Engine Warning Light

    Large oil can and spanner = Service due
    Visible when ignition key inserted, then disappears after engine started

    Small oil can and spanner with number = miles to next service
    Only visible when odometer reset pressed (ignition key out)

    This morning I had the large oil can and spanner come up on the display which I thought was the service indicator warning.

    However when I did the test to tell me the miles to the next service (pressing the odometer reset button with the ignition key out) it showed 10000 miles.

    What please am I misunderstanding?

    Thanks,
    Dave

    Aye, but what I don't understand is that I think it is also telling me that the service is due in 10000 miles.
