On startup the van dash says ***** change engine oil ******

Have only done 12500 km - currently in Banos Spain feeling a little fed up that the van is not playing it’s part......

Anyone have any advice on how to reset the message and/or what I should do?

It’s a 2019 Peugeot Boxer base.... corrinium duo.


Thanks

My 2018 Boxer did this exact same thing, waaaaayyyy before the service / oil-change was actually required.

I used the same method Paul described here, no issues since up!

I had it too after only 6 months.

I think the reason is Peugeot set the vehicles a time based service interval when they leave the factory.

Autosleeper then get the base van for conversion which could take them quite a while and then it also sometimes sits at a dealers, so when you eventually get it, it's already eaten into a lot of the built in 'countdown' from the factory.

I used the method to reset it above and worked a treat.

I had the same thing, had this reset at the purgeot dealership. They told me the same thing about the vehicle sitting or being built. They also had a memo affecting motorhomes saying that if it was over 18 months, they would need to charge for the oil change and would not reset. It was  a free reset for me. How changing the setting yourself would affect the warranty if the oil Change was needed?

Shouldn't affect warranty at all. The warranty and oil change intervals etc all should start from the date of registration as far as I know.

Would be interested to hear of anyone has first hand experience of that though.

Someone told me, who had a Mercedes based motorhome the warranty started when it left the factory? How true this is?

This worked, thank you
Guessing my base Peugeot came out of the factory January 2018...

Will get the oil and filter changed at a convenient point as I think two years of sitting doing nothing and then a few thousand Miles doesn’t leave the oil in great condition.

the warranty starts on date of  the registration the vehicle get put on the road. you should have been given a letter on the hand over day about oil warning indicator. vehicles now have a monitoring system that checks the quality of the oil. yes you can put the light out it says on the letter how to do this as Paul has said . but take it back to you dealer as per the letter. if you had no letter then contact the dealer you got you van from .

I bought a new Fiat Ducato in 2014. In spite of being a bloke, I started to read the owner's handbook. It says the first oil change is due at 30,000 miles. Gulperoonie. I guess though, if it is used as a delivery van, it would do 30k before one year was up. Most of us will change it annually of course, irrespective of mileage.
