how to rest 'change oil' warning light on startup
« on: October 10, 2021, 05:46:33 PM »
No dealer in my area closest 3 hrs away and locked down. Local guy did the service and neither of us can figure out how to reset the change oil warning. I tried umpteen pedal dances  from youtube and other sources. None works.

Can anyone help me with this please?

Thanks,
Rob,

You're going to need to take it to a dealer or an Alfa speciaist who has the latest Alfa specific diagnostic suite to have it reset.

What, didn't anyone explain to you when you bought it that the only places you can get your new Alfa serviced is a dealership or an Alfa specialist? (Said with total sarcasm and utter contempt towards the idiot that thought this was a good idea)  ::)

Thanks.
This is probably a silly question - can it be done remotely online?
