Q. Can you tell me how to reset the oil change reminder on a Rover 75, which flashes up each time I switch the ignition on. I changed the oil and filter last week, about 500 kilometres early.

A. There is a manual procedure for oil/service re-set, but it may not work if the time/kilometres are excessively overdue. With the ignition on, take a wire from pin 8 of the diagnostic socket to an earth point on the car, and hold it for approximately 1 – 4 seconds for oil. Repeat for time/inspection and hold for approximately 10 – 25 seconds. If this does not work, the system will need to be reset via diagnostic computer.
