i recently did the 15k mile service at an outside place other than the dealer but they did not reset the maintenance indicator for "oil change needed" on the display. does anyone know how to reset this? i can't find it in the owner's manual.
I did it last week with the instructions in the manual (it is in there...look). It entails using the trip reset button and power button simultaneously and the instructions in the manual aren't crystal clear, but you will figure it out.
After the requiredmaintenance is preformed according to the maintenance schedule, please resetthe maintenance data. To reset the data, follow the procedures described below:
Switch the displayto the trip meter “A” (→P. 193) when the hybrid system is operating.
Turn the “POWER”switch off.
While pressing thetrip meter reset button (→P. 193), turn the “POWER” switch to ON mode (do notstart the hybrid system because otherwise the reset mode will be canceled).Continue to press and hold the button until the trip meter displays “000000”and the multi-information display indicates that the reset is complete.
It did work on a 2012 CT200h, make sure to put your foot on the brake while holding the reset Trips A down and then the power switch on. It will start but you should see dashes in the Trip A window indicating that it is resetting the maintenance message. By the way, it doesn't look like the oil change is required until 20.000 miles, just the inspections.
