Resetting Car Service / Oil Change Reminder Lights in Hamilton

About car service / oil change reminder lights:

Car servicing Hamilton

Forgetting to change your car’s oil can cause serious engine damage to occur. For this reason, many modern cars have a dashboard light which illuminates your car is due for a service or oil change. In most vehicles, the onboard computer constantly keeps track of how much distance has been travelled since the last oil change. It then activates the light once a certain distance has been reached.

A common problem with this feature is that the service light may not turn off if you change the oil yourself. This is because the light often needs to be manually or electronically reset. When the service light stays on, it can cause confusion and prevent you from knowing when your next service is due.

 

What to do when the engine service light comes on?

When the engine service light turns on, you should get your car’s oil changed as soon as you can. When you go too long without changing your oil and filter, the oil will become dirty and lose its ability to lubricate your engine. This causes your engine’s moving parts to create friction, resulting in increased wear, blockages and excess heat.

A well-serviced car will last for a much longer time. It will also retain a higher resale value. At Grimmer Motors, we offer a variety of service packages, allowing you to choose the level of service that is best for your car. For high-quality car servicing in Hamilton, contact us today!
