Re: Service Menu

a mate of mine tried it last week on his £2,000 Snap On diagnostics machine, and couldn't! I told him he wouldn't be able to...did he listen? Nope!

Or if no magnet is available a big hammer would do the trick!

Re: Service Menu

You can have the service message switched off permanently by a dealer with examiner if you wish, you will have to go to a dealer but only once!

Re: Service Menu

Can some independants do it if they have the right software? I emailed an independant in Stockport who have a Bosch(sp?) system and they said they could reset it!

Re: Service Menu

You need to take a bit of care with this. There's been a few cases on the Forum where Stilos have needed quite expensive repairs after independents have messed around trying to reset the service counter

Surely it's not so difficult to find a Fiat garage with Examiner is it - why take the risk

Re: Service Menu

True, so true, but a lot of Fiat dealers won't do it unless you can prove the service was carried out. Some won't do it unless they service it themselves.
