Diesel Particulate Filter
Equipped cars need the oil quality counters reset to get thousands of miles before warning lights show..

Contact the garage who changed the oil but didnt reset the electronics

Spooked me this one. Just need reset.

To stop oil light flashing AFTER service. Key on one click but not started. Hold accelerator down for a minute at same time Press break pedal 7 times. Turn off and then back on, start and it should clear. Followed Ducato video on YouTube.

Thanks..
So it it 'just' a Service Light ?

Or is it having an effect on the
'Oil Degradation Index'..??

Just a service light as you have no changed oil.
