How to Reset the Service B in a Mercedes C230

by Vanessa Padgalskas

When a service is needed based on the car's mileage or time since the last service, the display screen on a Mercedes C230 will notify you. The display screen is located within the speedometer on the instrument panel. Mercedes mechanics will reset the Service B notification light after the service is performed. If you performed the service, you need to reset the light yourself. Service B includes an oil and filter change, a tire rotation and other maintenance checks.

1

Insert the key into the ignition and turn it until the battery comes or the engine turns on.

2

Locate the left and right arrow buttons on the left side of your steering wheel. Press either button until the mileage is displayed on the instrument panel display screen.

3

Press the up or down button until the service symbol appears on the screen.

4

Locate the trip odometer reset button to the left of the instrument panel. Hold the reset button for a few seconds until the screen displays the message, "Do you want to reset the service interval? Confirm with the R-button." Release the button once the phrase appears.

5

Press the reset button to reset the Service B notification.
