    Trip reset/ oil service countdown

    Been trying to reset my odometer as its annoying going to 1000 and then resetting. When pressed in I get nothing would like to get into hidden menus to check engine temp. The clock changing stalk works fine. Also when I start the car the oil service shows as a countdown in miles currently at aprox 1350 miles is this normal to show this

    Don't bother watching the vid just skip to the end and pause it anywhere between 3:26 and 3:37
    I've done it so it does work. Took 2 or 3 attempts tho. So be patient

    Sorry mate I misread your question

    The oil service countdown is completely normal. AFAIK you can't turn it off. The above vid shows you how to reset it back to 15,525 or something like that.

    It also takes you into hidden menus but I'm not sure what exactly as all I wanted to do was reset my oil service light.
    Hope this helps
