How to Reset the Maintenance Service Light on a Land Rover LR3

by Alibaster Smith

In 2004, Land Rover's marketing people had to make a difficult admission: that its vehicles had historically been built in the grandest of British automotive traditions. Meaning, of course, that they spent a lot of time broken down. The new Land Rover 3, engineered by then-parent-company BMW, was of course an entirely different creature from its British-Leyland-produced predecessors. Still, the "Discovery" name had proven a bit of a liability in America. But even with the Discovery now renamed LR3, one thing remained utterly true: proper, regular maintenance was absolutely critical to longevity. Of course, that's no small investment, if you're paying German-trained Rover mechanics to do every little thing.

1

Hold down the reset button on the dashboard to reset the LR3's trip counter. Keep holding the reset button down even after the trip counter has cleared.

2

Turn the ignition key to the "II" position.

3

Continue holding the reset button for five seconds until a new menu appears on the digital display.

4

Let go of the reset button and press the reset button again until the option "rst" appears.

5

Press the reset button again and your maintenance light will reset and shut off.
