Hi, I'm new here - I came looking for info on how to reset the service counter following a service by a small independant garage who didn't reset it.

Anyway, I tried following the "press the right stork button until the 'change oil soon' message appears and hold the button for 15sec" but it did not work, so I turned on the ignition - it frightened the life out of me as it went into 'mode test', the lights coming on and off, and the dials stepping up and down, and nothing I did seemed to end it!

Anyway I would like to report that the 'mode test' does end after 15-20 mins - no need to pull the battery.

Also I found that the service reset is done by holding the small trip reset button not the stork button - problem sorted.

All the best - keep up the good work all.

don't know if this has been posted yet but here goes....

Kangoo service light reset, can only be done if the car has less than 10% of miles left til the mileage service interval eg. the car has done over 16200 miles and is on a 18k service plan. if the mileage for service is not met and the annual period service is due y can reset the light.

Also the trafic 2 phase 2, service light is reset via holding the accelerator pedal and turning the ignition on and waiting 10 secs then press the brake pedal 5 times. if this does not reset the light after a few attempts then there is a known fault that renault know about in which a renault dealer will have to use a certain procedure on clip (diagnostic tool) to reset the light) if this is needed id try and argue the fact there is no need to pay labour as you tried the stated way it says in the handbook and is due to renault manufacture fault
