    I've just completed the 20,000km service on my dad's VZ SV6, and am trying to reset the trip computer. I tried the sequence that resets the reminder in my VT, and it says "Awaiting Confirmation" and doesn't change from that screen. I have also tried the VY Sequence, and it doesn't seem to get as far as the VT Sequence.

    Can anyone help and provide the correct sequence to reset the reminder?

    Thank you for your help.

    20,000 service???? The services are 15,000, 30,000 45,000 etc, not every 10,000k's... Might be time for a visit to the holden dealer to get the multiple updates for the computer I think

    Oh and while your there ask them, cause they would not tell me when it came up at 10,000 on my car eithor :b:

    hold the bottom two buttons and key on
    when it beeps release them
    press and hold the top right button until it resets.
    there are lots of VZ V6 cars with the instruments incorrectly programmed causing the 10k reminder, take it to the dealer to get the instrument cluster re-programmed.

    Cheers Rob

    Thanks Bob, worked perfectly. I think we'll stick with the 10,000 service interval software - we like to service the car more often anyway.

    My VZ SS Is due at 20,000 in about 3 or so weeks. I now get a reminder saying Service Engine Oil reminder...i asked at Holden about this and apparently there was a glitch in the computer programming of a lot of VZ cars which allowed this reminder to show which is only a feature of the export version of these cars. A simple (4HR) reprogramming of the computer will fix this on my next service I am told!!!

    I drive an export version of the VZ SS. (Sold in South Africa as the Chev Lumina SS.) For some reason the "Service Engine Oil" reminder also started showing. Would the engine service reset sequence work for this too?

    I tried it, and it works nicely. Does anybody know why this warning comes on? (Service engine oil.)

    By VZ popped up today at 28,400 with a service reminder. I thought it was 1000km before the services, so 29,000km it should start reminding me. Ah well, yet another whinge to the deaf ears of holden coming up..... :D

    when your saying they fixed it in 10 secs do you mean they updated the firmware in the dash or did they just simply do the reset like they would for the normal service reminders ?

    why i ask is that my car has recently popped up with this code on the dash and i have booked it in to get it fixed at holden on saturday, however if its just reseting the reminder in the dash i'll do that myself and save a trip to holden!!

    Try this mate

    1. Turn the ignition OFF.
    2. Hold down the trip computer UP and DOWN buttons together.
    3. Turn the ignition ON while still holding down both buttons.
    4. After approx 3 seconds, release both buttons.
    5. The service menu appears and asks if you want to reset.
    6. Press and hold the SET button for more than 3 secs.
    7. Press the MODE button.
    8. Turn ignition OFF.

    My Vz also has an awaiting confirmation message when trying to reset the service message. I tried the hold down the buttons thing but there is no beep no matter how long you hold them down for. Any help please

    What service message are u getting?
    Im getting the service engine oil on mine since friday, mine hangs at awaiting confirmation too.
    This is a seperate issue to the service reminder message.

    I did a few searches on google, some are saying it can be reset & others are saying its a software glitch to do with overseas models or some rubbish like that.
    Well its a trip to Holden tomorrow.
