Yes, this is the way to delete the service message.

The other way is to put up with it until the week after the car first went on the road,

My s type went of the production line on the 13th March 2007 and was sold on the 31st March 2007.

The message was coming a the beginning of March and goes on the second week in April.

It definitely works. I did it last week. Took me 10 attempts, as you have to go really quickly. Also, instead of 10 seconds, I held it for 60.

Believe it or not this has just happened to me!

My plan to get rid of it is "I can't be bothered". I did have a  full service three weeks ago, so it is lying.

thats all well and good Peter but i like things to work properly so when it comes on again i know it needs a service

I think you should try this fix if not just to see if it works for you

I have used this fix about 5 times and it always works.  But when the car has just had a service I think that the system is getting things wrong.  I won't be driving much in the next few days due to a damaged left hand which is now in a splint, but my mechanic is fitting a new wing mirror on the 26th and he will use his scanner to rub it out.

now! you see that is interesting Peter and hope the hand heals ok for you.

My mechanic couldn't rub it out for some reason the scanner couldn't see it to rub it out.

Ill keep trying anyway and ill let you all know if there is something else going on here

 

Cheers
