    I have got a mk3 but with the clocks shown as mk2 above. What do I do -method stated as shown for my clocks does not work.

    The instructions for the Fabia MK3 are missing a key step.
    As instructed start with the ignition in the OFF position (doors closed)
    But between steps 2 & 3 you need to turn the ignition to the ON position
    You will not get the Reset prompts unless you do this.

    When you see the prompt “Reset oil change service” release and re-press the Set [A] button
    Keep the Set [A] button pressed
    When you see the prompt “Reset inspection service” release and re-press the Set [A] button
    Keep the Set [A] button pressed until the confirmation message clears
    You have to respond while the prompt is displayed – if you respond too slowly just start again

    How does it know it needed a service? Time?

  4. D L THORNE

    Yes, 365 days from previous set. Unless set to mileage. I too found the ignition needs to be on! Thanks you for this page.
