Hi, I have a Captiva 2013, 2.2 diesel which has done @ 35K miles.

The service light has come on (orange car shaped light with a spanner), and I had the car serviced recently.

I wondering how to reset this light, is there a sequence of buttons or something to reset it?

Thanks in advance

Turn ignition on but don't start it & then press accelerator 3 times.
Your light will then go out.
Turn ignition off and then your done

Thanks for your reply.. turns out the light was on in relation to a fault with one of the injectors - I'm having it replaced next week

Rattler, You need to inform Forum Members the variant of your Captiva ie Series 1 or Series 2. (year?) Some later models are only resettable using dealer equipment.
If you've just had a Service by a Mechanic he should have done this.
Note that the 'Spanner' icon can be illuminated for other mechanical reasons which may require investigation.

Rattler, I've just seen you have opened yet another post when it could have been added to the existing Topic.
To maintain continuity I've copied you post to here and closed the other one.

"My car has just had a service and now the service light has come on the orange car with a spanner inside the shape, Can this be reset by myself or is it a tech job .

if a simple job perhaps I could sort myself or do I take it back to the garage ? would a full diagnostic scan show up other issues

Furthermore is this an indication of further issues with the car?

Many thanks in anticipation"

In light of your explanation that your vehicle has just had a service take it back to them.
If the service light wasnt illuminated before the Service they may have not correctly actioned the reset.
