Resetting Oil light after service.

Is there a way to reset the oil service light on a 58 plate fiat 500 or is it a dealership job?

I've searched online to find a "push pedal down 3 times method" but this seems to be for the later models as I've tried it with no joy.

Any help would be appreciated.

Re: Resetting Oil light after service.

Hi,
I use Multiecuscan www.multiecuscan.net and a elm 327 interface. This can do lot more than just reset service lights. Did you change the oil youself? Note that most dealers won't do a service reset unless they did he actual service for legal reasons.
What engine does your 500 have?

Regards,
Robert G8RPI

Thanks Robert,

I service the vehicle myself, I understand that the dealers won't just reset the light wasn't sure if there was a specific diagnosis tool to reset light.

I'll take a look at that software I use something similar for my Audi.

The engine is the 1.2

Re: Resetting Oil light after service.

Hi Mike,
Multiecuscan (MES) is one of the best investments you can make if keeping and servicing your own Fiat. You need a PC (laptop or notepad anything with Windows XP SP 2 or newer), a registered copy of Multiecuscan (€50) www.multiecuscan.net and an ELM 327 or similar interface lead.e.g. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/271275445368 (15) and yellow adaptor "3" http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/152525748488 (7) or a set http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/162524569889 (27) if you might do other cars. I've used all sellers.

Ok so I have the EML 327 lead and Yellow adapter, downloaded the free version of the Multiecuscan program and all I'm getting is "connection failed EML327->ECU connection failed Check Cable and serial port settings!

Am I doing something wrong?

Re: Resetting Oil light after service.

Hi Mike,
What interface settings do you have? You can see them if you click the "settings" button (or F9) and the "interface" tab on pop-up window. @Mark500

Re: Resetting Oil light after service.

Settings are as follows

Interface type : elm327 1.3/1.4/1.4b/2.1
Serial port : Com 5 (USB serial port) 38400.

Test comes back with "This interface is compatible with ELM 327 1.4 Should connect properly with all CAN modules

@g8rpi
Hi,
Is the plug in fully and does the power LED light up on the interface?

Re: Resetting Oil light after service.

Yeah appears to go all the way in and power led light goes red.

I've also noticed that it sometimes triggers an airbag warning or fuel cut off disabled warning once unplugged from the car.

Thanks for you're help on this one @g8rpi, thought it would be a straight forward issue as I've used vagcom etc in the past with no issues

Hi,
If you have a multimeter, check the resistance between pins 6 and 14 of the interface. If it is less than 200 ohms it may have a resistor connected that should not be there. Which interface (ebay number or link to site) did you buy?

Re: Resetting Oil light after service.

I do have a multimeter, I will check in the morning to see what resistance it's putting out.

These are the links to what I got.

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/271275445368

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/162529898716

Believe they are the same as suggested previously

Thanks @g8rpi

Re: Resetting Oil light after service.

Port settings are critical. Follow the process in this post, particularly post 5.

Re: Resetting Oil light after service.

Might seem a silly question, but you do have theignition switched to ON (MAR)?

MES seems quite difficult to get to connect, but once connected, a very capable program.
I've found my step-by-step process to work every time, and for a long time now, so cannot remember now all the frustrating refusals. You must set up the connection before opening MES, did you do that, or was it already open?
Reboot machine.
Connect cable
Set up cable (Might need another reboot for the settings to stick and be used.)
Then open MES.

You did get a 'modified' ELM?
