The mileage that the car accumulates henceforth is subtracted from 9,500 miles, until 9,500 miles have elapsed at which point the service indicator icon will reappear inorder to warn the driver that the next service is imminent. Any mileage accumulated beyond 10,000 miles since the last reset will be indicated with a minus sign displayed infront of the mileage to indicate by how much a service is overdue.

Note 2: To the best of my knowledge, the above service light reset procedure applicable to most Peugeot cars, most Citroen cars and most Fiat cars with the exception of the Fiat Stilo. (Also applicable to car derrived vans from the above ranges).
