    Smile Learned Something New Today

    As I'm too tight to pay vxl to service my car and I have a mate who can get all vxl parts at trade prices and service it myself - I've been driving around for the last 25,000 miles with the annoying "INSP" coming up on the odometer, thinking that VX plug the car into a computer to reset the service indicator.

    Not true ! - No doubt i'm the last on the plant to now know who to reset the indicator (hold reset button in - put keys in ignition & turn on to accessories position)

    Yippee - small things eh !

    i forgot how to do this, just run out to the car and done it.. took 30 seconds..

    Hold in the rest button, on the dash - also used to reset the mileage counter..

    while holding it in put the keys in and put to full ignition put dont start the engine.. The INSP will flash, keep holding the button then it will disapear..

    All done.
