Hi everyone - shutting off Service Lights?

Hello there I suppose this this is more of a question to the developer than the general forum but here goes...

I have bought your official (CAR/DR) adaptor for the car and I also bought your official app on the Play Store so as far as I can tell the adaptor and app are only geared up to to put out error lights on the dashboard but not for service lights (spanner).

I have serviced my own car according to the manufacturer's specs because I don't see the point of paying dealer prices as the car is only 2 years old and there is very little work to do apart from replacing the oil and a couple of filters - I already do my own brake pads and discs etc. The reason I bought the adaptor and also the app on the Play store is so that I could delete the service spanner light from the dash.

Am I correct in thinking that this feature is not available on this adaptor and app? - if so could I possibly request this as a feature request and could it possibly be done in the near future?

I do like the idea of a forum where we can ask questions and it shows Great support from the developer. All I need now is a really nice positive answer:-)

Thanks!
Russ

Please note that App supports only parameters and ECU's specified with OBD-II standard, that is Engine and Emission systems (Check Engine dashboard light).

Unfortunately other car systems like service reminders, ABS, ESP, SRS etc. do not covered with any standard. Implementation could be very different for various make-model-year. You might need the other specialized solution for exact make-model-year that declare support of all listed systems.

Thanks!

 - I did find a sneaky way of turning off the service light. You're right these are car-specific I think..

For reference: "Hold in the trip stalk then keep holding it in and put the ignition on (don't start the engine) - Keep holding it until the spanner light starts to flash - then it goes out and you can restart the car to verify it' done... :-) "
