Service light

As you'll be aware, I've recently bought into the LR life. Mine came from a local Mazda dealership that had taken the car in as p/ex. They serviced it before I took it away but I've now had the service due message appear in the dash. I'm presuming this would have been cleared had it been serviced by a LR dealer so is there any way of clearing it now? It's not that irritating as it seems to disappear upon start up so I suppose I could leave it and have the next service d/w by a LR garage

If you search there is loads of info on this, including a sticky, but best for newer cars (I think 2013 onwards are different to earlier models) is probably this

It looks like you need the "Brazilian Method"

Thanks Steve - I also found a YouTube clip. The 63 plate has press button stop/start so if I'm reading this correctly, with the ignition on and pedals depressed, it sounds like I'm having to give it full acceleration for 60 secs. That'll please the neighbours Laughing Think I'll run it up the common and try it there

I have to say I have never actually done a “ Brazilian” though I will be in a week or so but I think that you do it all without starting the engine

Best way I suppose is to try it Very Happy Will report back later

Update - when outside, ignition on, bonnet open, door open, both pedals depressed for 60sec . . . . 'service due' message appears to have gone Very Happy Have since been out to the shops etc and restarted the car several times, still no show, so looks as if it's cleared.
Thank you

That is good. Apparently it works better when there is a full moon and you stand on one leg

I tried the left leg at first, no luck. Need to adopt a single right leg stance 😄

You don't need to do the "open bonnet, open door" stuff, that's just hocus-pocus Laughing
