Hi guys
Italy here, and i'd like to post a question in your forum (we have similar one dedicated to Vitara from 1988 to 2015 models). Well...someone know how to reset the mileage of oil on the diesel model? Pushing the right pencil, is showing remaing miles, average fuel consuption, average speed and the approx mileage that remain to change the oil. If you change oil before 0, is not possible to reset it. It's only possible on petrol model via menu, but not in diesel version. Any tricks? Sorry for my english...thank you!! Very Happy

Welcome to the forum aloofnessit and your English is fine cheers

I have no experience with the Diesel reset but hopefully a Diesel owner will be along with more knowledge

the manual doesnt give any other option so you are correct . a diagnostic tool such as a snap-on verus may also be able to do it.

Hi

It is very irritating... Don't like having to rely on (pay) dealer to reset it every few thousand miles...

Found a youtubevideo (can't post link but Google: vitara 2015 oil change reset) but it doesn't work for UK models or diesel models ...just seems to bring up the normal rhs "pencil" menu that has no oil change reset option.

Thinking about buying a scanner like Autel Maxiscan 309 -anyone tried anything like that?  Seen other forum posts that say it works for old grand vitaras and sx4...

Thanks!

Yes that's the video.  There's no reset option on the menu on my diesel.

So far I've tried a Bluetooth OBD 2 interface and a few different apps, but no luck.  I believe I need a Suzuki manufacturer-specific code, so if anyone can find that...

My previous model SX4 oil reset was performed by local non Suzuki garage using Snap On analyser, did it for nothing but gave him a fiver for his tea fund.

Hi Guys this drove me nuts too but I found a solution. I bought a scanner/reader and after updating the software (which was very easy as it`s on a micro sd card) it worked!!!! The vitara is not actually listed but under the oil change heading "Japanese market" it worked on my vitara and I live in Ireland, so we have the Uk/european model.  It`s called " Launch CReader 7001s" I bought mine at the below address but you can look for cheaper if you wish. Best of luck guys.

Many thanks for replying to this (and the other thread) - very helpful.

I found a decent local independent garage who think they will be able to switch the light off after they next update their diagnostic's software. If that doesn't work I might well try the Launch device, thanks.

In case anyone's interested, a couple of other points following on from my original post... Suzuki's Customer Services/Tech Dept confirmed there's no "hidden" menu option or any other way to reset the light without using a suitable diagnostic. They are no plans to change this with any future update. Also, this warning light being on won't result in an MOT fail.
