2007 Mercedes Sprinter 311 CDI – Service Indicator Reset – This One Works!

Just changed the oil on my Sprinter and needed to reset the service indicator. I tried several ways to  do the reset from searches on Google and only this one worked on my van –

Service Reset instruction for 2006+ Sprinter (NCV3)

with NO steering wheel buttons.

1. Put the key in the ignition and switch it on without starting the engine.
(Wait for LCD to return to the vehicle mileage)

2. Hold the “O” button down till you hear a beep (could take a while, 30 sec.)

3. Press the M button repeatedly and a number of reset menus will appear, (If you have used oil according to quality sheet 229.31 or 228/229.51 you can scroll to Reset.31 or Reset.51 respectively.) Select “reset 51”

4. Now, when appropriate oil type is selected press “O” for 6 seconds until ”2” is displayed.

5. Press “O” once again briefly and the ” reset done” message will confirm that the job is done.

6. Pull the Key out

One tip for the oil filter change – get the right filter wrench – 74mm diameter, 14 flats. Makes the job very easy to do.
