Default Service Indicator

Hi All,

Yesterday morning on starting the car, the service indicator told me that there are still 3, 500km to go before the next service. In the afternoon at about 3 (having driven about 30km's) the little tool came up, indicating that a service is due.

This morning the indicator told me that there are now -100km to the next service.

I am aware that the indicator is linked to the way the car is driven, but 3, 470km in one go!!

Gerhard.

Mines a bit dodgey like that too. I tend to keep a note in the handbook, just in case!

Just spoke to the local dealership:

Here's the response, the service indicator is linked to two happenings, 1. Time and 2. Distance. In the time part they will program the on-board computer to indicate on the day that a service is due. (So if your car was serviced on 07 Nov 2010 the indicator will come up on, yes, 07 Nov. 2011)

But if you drive like you stole it, the clever computer will pick it up and then work according to the distance part. Which can be less than 1 year or 20, 000km.

In my case it was due to the date. (Damm, and I always saw myself as a fast driver) Anyway the car is now going in for the service, luckily still within the services plan.

Definitely not..... thats the recommended service interval.... mine is showing I've still got 7500miles to go.... had it done last September, and should go for another 6 months.

20k miles or 2yrs is the 2.0HDI interval

It is actually a 2l petrol. (Diesel is for people that do not like cars or driving. To drive a diesel must be similar to drinking flat Coke.)

Ooohhh you've stepped into the lion's den there.....

I would say the majority of 407 owners here have the diesel

After owning diesel, I would never buy petrol again.... the performance so outways the petrol its unbelievable.... may not do the 0-60 time, but overall performance is far superior.... especially for high mileage drivers, and for me here where there are soooo many hills
