OBD2 diagnostic tool
« on: August 24, 2021, 06:25:59 pm »
Anybody ever used a obd device to turn off the service light off?
I bought one plugged into the port but didn’t even turned on, it was a cheap one.

    Has the car been serviced? If so then the garage should have turned it off.

    If you serviced it yourself then that's a different matter.

    If it hasn't been serviced and you still want to turn the light off then....naughty!  ;D

    From experience it's not something you can usually do with a consumer OBD2 reader. There's quite often a procedure to follow though which will reset the light. Worth having a quick search on YouTube for that sort of thing.

    Hi, the car is off the warranty and I’ve done only 5000 km since the last service so I’m not gonna waste money now in a new service, it was due this month august but I’m thinking to wait till December, it makes no sense to service the car, I bought 2 OBD2 from amazon brand Ancel but It didn’t work.
