    Default Confused by InSp & Service Schedule..

    My car was service by Vx last march.

    I think it is/was on the ecoflex plan - where the car monitors itself and tells you when it needs a service

    So, I over the last few months I have been pressing & holding the trip meter when getting in to see when the next service is due. The trip was showing 2000 miles (and counting down, I assume) to the next service

    On Friday I got in and 'InSp' just popped up on the dash!! - it must have done about 100 miles max since I last checked the service count-down . I thought it was supposed to give you at least 600 miles notice irrespectoive of service plan?

    Anyone else had this?? I am confused to say the least...

    You don't get a number when it goes to INSP

    If you switch the ignition on INSP appears then disappears after about 30 seconds
    This is the first stage warning that your car requires a service, within 1000 miles

    If you switch the ignition on INSP appears and stays on
    This is the final stage warning that your car requires a service, within 500 miles

    I typically book my car on for a service at the first stage, as that means I have about 2 weeks left

    M8 Internet - Thanks

    InSp does indeed stay on for about 30 secs

    Looks like my service countdown mileometer had just 'clicked' down from 2000 miles to 1000 miles then!

    Cheers!
