Serviced the vehicle before Xmas 2020, and reset the service light, all OK,
Then in mid January it started to stay on in the morning after starting, and won't go off until I have driven about 10.miles,then if I stop and restart the engine the light will go off, but next day just the same, I have tried many time to reset the service light, but the light stays on.
Any ideas please??
Many thanks
Trevor

You changed engine oil with the correct type / grade and filter , plus fuel filter ?

Is the method you use to reset plus confirming on doing so ? Well worth changing the fuel filter , especially if not been done in a while

Yes it say 100% when I set it, so I will try changing the fuel filter,, is there a sensor in the fuel filter linked to the service light??,
Will try that though, it might have to wait until the weather is a bit dryer,
Thanks for the advice

Thanks for that. But my fuel filter is underneath the car near the rear o/s wheel, by the fuel tank
