From interpretation of the handbook (which admittedly is not straightforward)
CFG1/2/3 select the service interval. 18,600, 12,500 or 9,300 miles respectively (can be set for different usage patterns for different models).
Once you've got the CFGn displayed, a quick push on the button switches between them, but once you've got the one you want, hold the button down (it says at least 5 seconds).
This should reset the service interval to the required mileage, and reset the service indicator.
I assume you have had the service indicator switch on due to mileage? The spanner symbol on mine always displays as a test on switch on. When a service is due, I additionally expect a countdown to appear and not disappear until the config above is done.
I have been told to change the oil on my Turbo diesel car at around 4 - 5000 miles which i have done since i have owned it, albeit the manufacture recommends 13000,
I also checked in a friends Pegeuot car hand book and it clearly stated that it needs servicing at 12000 mile intervals, BUT in the small print it said something to the effect that the 12000 mile service intervals were only applicable if fully synthtic motor oil was used.
What oil do you use in your Fiat 2.8 JTD and how many miles between oil changes ??
The spanner will come on after 365 days, regardless of the mileage setting. This is because a service is recommended annually for low mileage users.
I use Millers XFE hi synthetic diesel oil, and change it annually, as we only cover about 5000 miles a year in our 2.8 JTD Fiat.
I have a 2004 2litre HDI Boxer. Regarding the service indicator, the handbook says "This informs you of the distance remaining to the service in conformity with the manufacturers servicing schedule. For a few seconds after the ignition has been switched on, the spanner symbol lights up; the display for total distance recorder tells you the distance remaining to your next service".
On my van I don't get any numbers displayed, I get the spanner flash on and off, on switch on, but that is all. I went to a Peugeot dealer who sent a mechanic out to look at it but he just shook his head and said that my van does not have this feature. I was not convinced [and he made oily fingermarks on my handbook ]. Does anyone know when this feature was introduced. My Boxer is March 2004.
Thanks -- squip
I have exactly the same problem the manual says the same as yours but when i turn the ignition on the spanner just lights up for a second or two and then it goes off, but no milage shows other than the normal milage covered or the trip milage.
Has anyone any ideas, how to find out the remaining milage before the service is required ?
