Post by simontm1959 on Sun Jun 21, 2020 11:04 am

After having to charge the vehicle battery after being in storage, the 'Oil Change' warning came on,.  Not something I wanted to drive around with until the next service (14 months away).  Contacted Peugeot who advised 'it's a computer reset' - must be brought in and plugged into the computer.  Took it in, handed the keys at the service desk and literally 2 minutes later they handed me the keys back and said all good.  I said I though you need to 'hook it' up to the computer?  Oh no, not now, we switch the ignition on and press the pedals in sequence and that resets it!  I wasn't very happy after being told this as it was a 90 mile round trip - plus getting it out of storage!  Posting this to let everyone know and possibly save a unnecessary journey if the same thing happens.

Did they tell you what the pedal sequence was? Might be useful for others (including Peugeot engineers).

David - Unfortunately they didn't, I was lucky to get that feedback, as they rushed off!

Thanks!  I should've looked at YouTube rather than asking the dealer!  Hope it helps someone!

Puggie Dealerships are very good at drawing the money out of van owners , my last four year service they charged me £2.50 for topping up the windshield washer bottle.    shrugg  I had advised the service reception I had filled it up with Halfords washer liquid before coming inane not to bother. After giving a negative review ,the service manager dropped of a full bottle of Peugeot washer liquid and apologised, there you go.  up!

I had the same thing happen to me, dropped it into the dealership, where they  said they had a memo notification of motorhomes and would not reset after a certain period and would need to oil change and charge. Something to do with the time the vehicle was being transformed into a motorhome and how long it had been standing. It is not from first registration. They did reset with no charge.

Always worth checking the internet before contacting a garage.  Our oil change warning came on the Nuevo  2 days after servicing.  It was serviced on lockdown day and we didn’t want to have to take it back so hubby found the not-so-secret sequence and it worked a treat

Last week we got the car back after some major work, following day set off to get our click and collect order and the airbag light came on.  Uncle Google directed hubby to the sequence to sort that one too.

Procedure is:-
Turn ignition on until oil change warning shows, turn ignition off, press throttle all the way down & press brake pedal down, keeping pedals down turn on ignition & wait until oil warning shows on display, turn off ignition, release both pedals. Warning should now be gone when you turn on the ignition. 
Worked on my 2019 Nuevo but I assume all are similar.

as you said people buying new vans should have been given the paper work  about the oil light coming on when they collected the new van on the hand over . you should not be resetting it yourself as this could effect the warranty.as now the vehicle could end up going well over 2 years before the oil is changed  and you well have no paper work of any oil change  .if the dealer resets it they will have a log of this  so well cover you for the warranty

I was talking about a new vehicle warranty not a 2nd hand warranty that it sound like you are talking about Ricard that is not worth paying out for

I was surprised when I bought a new Fiat Ducato based motorhome. The first oil change from new was listed at 30,000 miles or one year! I suppose a DHL van will do that in a month but here I am having been brought up on a diet of Minis, Minors and Austins where the first oil change from an engine rebuild is 500 miles. And have you seen what they call 'oil' nowadays? You could easily mistake it for water and drink it. It's colourless and the same viscosity as water. Or at least the brand I saw in a car accessory shop was.

I just had our Kingham MOTd and a recall on the brake pipes done at the local(ish) Peugeot dealer.  The oil service warning came on the day before, this is the second time it’s happened, when I collected it they advised they had changed the oil and replaced the filter.

So I’ve had three changes of oil and filter in 3,800 miles and IIRC only paid once.

I must remember the pedal trick !

My light came on about a week after I picked the van up and after a search on the net found the full reset sequence.

This photocopied page was in the handover documents and was pointed out to me on handover. Looks like the final part of the reset sequence is on a second page.

Oil Change Warning Empty Emission control dashboard warning light.

Post by Sunbeampizza on Thu Jun 25, 2020 10:34 am

On the subject of dashboard warning lights, my emission control light has been on since the van came out of winter storage despite a brisk one hour run down the M4 which I was told should have cleared it. Booked it in to my usual brilliant garage in Stoke Mandeville and guess what ? the darn light disappeared on the way. They plugged it in to the diagnostic computer and confirmed nothing was wrong and cleared it off and three other fault codes after similarly checking. There was no charge (apart from a pint of course). Agree with gasseygassey - bring back the old days !

I'm seriously thinking of getting a monocoque A/S. There are some very nice ones out there for £15k.
Oh by the way in the latest MMM there is an advert from a dealer offering a new Nuevo for £49,995 which sounds good. Well, cheaper than list anyway.
