Get rid of..."Change Engine Oil" warning light!

Hi,
I`m a newbie to the forum but thought I`d share a bit of good news about this "Change Engine Oil" warning light. Basically this is a service warning which won`t go away even after you change the oil yourself. Fiat want to make money for nothing by insisting that they graciously turn it off for you! Not one to give up too easily I perused the web and found our American distant relatives driving those huge monster machines (Chevrolet site NOT FIAT!!!) had the same problem and this is how they solved it (to give credit to where it`s due!)....

"To get the "change oil" light to turn off, you turn the ignition to the on position (the position right before you start the engine), and mash the gas pedal three times. The engine should not be running during the process. The next time you start your SUV, the "change oil" light will come on with the rest of the dummie lights and go off with them as well. This is the process that 1 useon my 2003 trailblazer and have also read that it works on 2002 and 2004 and can only assume that GM most likely kept it for the rest of the year models. Hope this helps everyone out"

Well it worked a treat on my 1.3 JTD 05 Doblo THANKS GUYS!! Seems that when they`re not dropping bombs on people they can be quite nice and helpful!

Ps. you may have to try this a few times before it works, the main trick is to push the accelerator (gas) pedal down hard into the carpet! GOOD LUCK!

Hi,
Sorry everyone this doesn`t work! I was trying it for so long that the light goes out by itself anyway; only to come back on when you next restart! Just get the ecuscan and reset it.
