    (1) Turn Ignition ON - Reset odometer - Turn Ignition OFF
    o Firstly with the ignition switched on (so that the battery, Oil and Parking brake lights are displayed), set the odometer trip meter back to zero by pushing it once. Then switch the ignition back off again. (I found this step was critical, otherwise I couldn't get to the "Service" menu).
    (2) Turn Ignition ON - Press odometer reset button 5 seconds & release - Press odometer button until oil symbol is illuminated
    o Press the odometer reset button for between 5 and 10 seconds until a yellow triangle with an exclamation mark in the centre appears in the top window between the clocks (where the outside temperature / time or date normally appears) - this is the "Service" icon.

    (3) To RESET interval - Press and hold odometer button
    (4) To reset other service indicators, repeat (1) - (2) until the symbol I want to reset appears, then perform (3)
