How to Reset My Oil Meter on My Mercedes ML350by David Clair
The ML350 is a luxury sport utility vehicle manufactured by Mercedes. The ML350 comes equipped with an oil change service meter that illuminates when regular service is due. Many automotive technicians reset the oil meter when they perform an oil change. If you change the oil on your ML350 yourself, or if your mechanic does not reset the oil meter, reset the meter manually. Resetting the oil meter ensures that the service reminder displays at the appropriate time when service is again due.
