    Hey All;

    I am doing the 10,000 KM service on my Anniversario and would like to reset the Maintenance icon. The closest dealer is 3 hours away. Is there a way to do this myself?

    Thanks

    Scammy and, as it says "NAI nt," also stooopid. :swear:

    I just live with it ... and curse the suits who did it. I doubt that any dealer will do that for free.

    Bill, you can user reset on the Mk I-II. I'm sure it's covered here... but quickly for now, hold down on the left chrome button, upper left of the 02_11 in your diagram above, key on while holding down, wait until the CEL flashes once and release the button... Key off, (with no button held down) key on, off, and back on and it should be gone. If not, rinse/repeat and Bob's your Uncle says Burt Munro.

    Dealer only for the Mk III & V85TT.

    Would have been nice if they made this doable for those of us who do our own service. Guess I will just live with it until I have to go to the dealer.

    he has a III and it's different. But I think it can be self-done, unlike the V85. Look it up and post it.

    There's an awful lot of nonsense on these (Guzzi) bikes. This and the user code 2 key BS just to name a couple. Good thing they're so much fun to ride!

    All these *Advances* in Technology in the Name of Progress have me wondering sometimes. :mad:
    If the ECU ever goes for %^&* - I'd look at getting it converted to Carburated...

    It would be cheaper to Fly Todd here to do the work - than send the Bike over there :)

    Have looked all over, including these forums, does not seem to be doable by the user.

    I can confirm it's a dealer only job for the V7-III. Place a small piece of tape over the spanner icon if it bothers you.

    Piaggio would have been forthright to have used a screw or $-sign for its icon. :swear:

    I think one of their lawyers came up with it!

    Sorry couldn't resist.
    All mfg's seem to be on the screw the customer rage. I looked at buying about a 10-year-old range rover that was totalled for front end damage for use at the hunting camp. turns out if the battery goes dead it's $800. to tow it to a dealer to have the computer reset. Don't remember if that included the battery or not. No thanks. sticking with the 1986 Samauri.

    Yup, Steve.

    I am in the throes of trying to keep the Mini dealer from raping us for $500 as both our key fobs are DOA (without warning, BTW).

    The system is such that many model years -- including our 2009 S 'vert -- requires a dealer to sell you a new one and "reprogram" it for c.$250 each. :banghead:

    Thankfully, there are several y/t vids that show one how one can slice one's fingers off with a box cutter, pull out the little circuit board, use a soldering iron to release the battery, and reverse with new battery.

    Next comes the Tpms at I bet $300-400 each. Bend over and assume the angle.

    Bill, when I was watching your post come up before having read it and saw the soldering iron, I thought you were going to show us how to defeat the maintenance icon once and for all :party:

    ^^^^^^^

    THAT is funny.

    My "skills" with a soldering iron are pretty much limited to botching things and burning myself.

    In this, I was actually successful in heating the existing solder enough to cause the battery to release from the circuit board without (visibly) damaging either.

    Then, as the nationwide battery supplier, Battery Mart, is here in Winchester, I checked the website, saw that they had the right battery, and drove down to get it.

    The bad news is that the "in stock" meant at their warehouse for shipping, not the retail outlet. Doh.

    But the GREAT news is the guy at the counter said "we have a guy who does that for you." What!? Yes. And just for buying the battery! I do have to bust the fob case which can be a bloody affair, but think now I'll just buy two new "empty" fobs and have the battery guy do the soldering and assembly. Yee ha!

    [And, yes, I'll tip the guy in a meaningful manner!]

    Now, if only someone smart could figure out an end run on that wrench icon, all would be good.

    Oh, Kiwi Dave, I did that tape thing in my POS Toyota pickup. All of those seem to show the parking brake light on whether engaged or not. With 240K mileson it, it's hard to complain. Not sure I feel so kindly about the III's icon. I do appreciate, Todd, the fix for the II; will try that in a bit. [Edited to add that "Na int" is now "t'ain't" on the Stornello! :clap:]

    FWIW, the 86 Samurai has the brake light on unless full to the top line of brake fluid. On it emergency and regular brakes use the same light.

    Its Easy !

    The system displays the function as follows:

    when a maintenance interval threshold
    is exceeded, an icon with a spanner ( Wench ) is
    shown on the LCD display.
    To reset Service proceed as follows:

    Connect the diagnostic tool

    Select the concerned model and inside
    the section "SELF-DIAGNOSIS" enter
    the menu "ACTIVATIONS"

    Activate the control "SERVICE RE-
    SET

    Piece of Cake !
    Whose got a *Compatible* Diagnostic Tool ?

    Care to share which diagnostic tool you are using?

    Does it include the V85 as a "concerned" model?

    Is you V7 Stone a V7-II or V7-III?

    The *proper* diagnostic tool... I would Guess - I'd tell you If I had one - and I can only Guess it would work for All *new* / Current Bikes...

    Sorry, If my post was Too confident sounding and you didn't read to the End. :)
    I wonder if the Former Dealer in town had to Return the Diag. tool they had ????

    I'm gonna go see him !
    Too bad Everyone so Pissy about Drinking, Driving and Dying !!! - I'd bring along a few beers and catch him at Closing time :)

    ( This last comment was made as a Humorous anecdote - i drink Nothing but water before Motorcycling and WILL NOT ride after ANY alcoholic consumption. Its dangerous enough sober ! )
    You can ask about last Summer... when I did my Evil Knievel impression... but walked away.
