Citroen Xsara Picasso Service Light Reset

How to Reset the Service Light Citroen Xsara Picasso

Recently I have had a few requests for Citroen Xsara Picasso Service Light Reset information from people who service their own vehicles.

Being a mobile mechanic and auto diagnostic specialist I could use the stock answer and say “I’ll have to plug it in for you”.

As you have no doubt seen through my other posts I do not believe in making things difficult for the home mechanic.
Here is the procedure:

Sit in drivers seat ignition off and handbrake applied.

Press and hold trip reset button.

Turn key to position two (ignition lights on engine not started).

Keeping the trip reset button pressed in you will notice your trip meter counting down.

When zero (0) is reached start the car and the service light (spanner symbol) should now be extinguished.

Please only use this information after your vehicle has been serviced
