When i start my car up before the mileage comes into view it says " INSP " what does this mean exactly ?
easy to reset too. but best get it serviced before you reset
After how many miles does the INSP thing come up?
15k if i'm not mistaken
cant remember the mileage but its once a year or xxxxxmiles
as already mentioned it just means the vehicle has reached a pre-determined interval (20K miles iirc) since it was last reset.
Therotically speaking the car could have received a full service only a week prior without the INSP being reset therefore if the INSP warning lights up now....does that mean a further service is required??? I think not
Therefore I always advise ppl if a service is due based on your own service schedule then carry it out - if not then just reset it using the simple procedure below.
With key out of ignition (or in off position) press and hold the mileage trip button...keep it pressed and insert key and turn to IGN (ie lights on dash but dont start engine) keep it pressed for a few seconds until INSP disappears and is replaced by flashing "- - - - -" release the button and the INSP warning light has been reset for another 20k miles.
You can reset this at any point in time even if the INSP isn't illuminated....in doing so, it will just start the 20k countdown again.
