Oil light reset

Post by Newry » Fri Feb 01, 2019 10:36 pm

I have a2016 Diesel Vitara 4x allgrip auto and want to change the oil myself. How do I reset the oil change light. The YouTube instructions don't work.
Anybody have the correct method without a Dealer computer.

Any garage with a generic reset tool can do it, not a job you can do yourself. My local independent reset mine.

Anyone with an OBD2 reader should be able to do it. *should*...

Unfortunately, an OBD tool won't do it. My independent has a generic (Sun I think) tool that can do it, it's been done many times.

Had to go to the dealer. No work around available for the diesel engine.

1. Foot on accelerator and keep it depressed.for entire procedure.
2. Power on button twice to switch ignition on but not engine.
3. Press Left trip button until odometer B is selected.
4. Press and hold Right menu button.
5. Pump brake pedal 3-4 times and wait.
6. When Change Oil Warning has cleared, release the accelerator.
Job done... It may take more than 1 attempt.
