    Default Service Interval Light.

    Spanner light came on yesterday and the car went into limp mode. ******, so I re-set the service interval and when waiting for the warning symbol to go noticed the number 21 underneath it. Does this refer to anything?

    Also local garage told me that because I re-set it, it was more than likey that the falut code would'nt be stored. Is this true?

    Whatever gave you the impression that resetting the service interval would cure the engine electronics / tranmission electronics fault light being on?

    unless the battery was disconnected....then all the codes will disappear.

    resetting the service indicator will change nothing to do with the fault codes..

    21 will refer to you resetting the service interval to 21,000 miles..


    Local garage don't fill me with confidence..

    It did'nt give me any impression Dave. I just re-set the service light and the car went out of limp mode. Its due for a service and will be done ASAP along with it being linked up to a tech 2 me thinks.

    Mark how can you change the interval to 12,000 miles instead of 21,000 mines a 1.8.

    You need to get the car plugged into Tech2 and have the ECOService-Flex service interval turned off.

    You'll then be on 20,000 miles / 1 year service intervals. You won't get a service reminder light though.
