How do you go about resetting the oil dilution counter just out of interest Roy? I seem to recall someone on here had an oil change and the dealer wouldn't reset theirs as they had not carried out the work in the first place.....is there a way of manually resetting this yourself?
Yes... and NO
Yes if your car was built from MY2017 onwards, see:
No if your car was built before this date (it will have the old style 'jewelled' instrument cluster) as a software update to enable the car to display a service required message (many, including mine did not do this and I had to remember to take it in at 21k miles for a service) has meant that only the Land Rover diagnostics can currently reset the counter. You could go to an independent that has invested in such a device.
Given the above, I have not yet tried the youtube steps on my car as its not required a service (just had one in April), I read in one of the bulletins that this was the case (Oil Dilution bulletin?)
The method in the YouTube video I posted in a previous comment DOES work for MY2016 vehicles like mine that had the N025 counter split software update added. Some 10k miles earlier than scheduled (53k not 62k) the car was calling for service, I put this down to oil dilution indicating an interim oil change.
I have just successfully undertaken an oil change and reset the call for service without needing any special equipment. Took me about an hour as I was in no rush and afforded myself a cup of tea in the middle!
This resets the message on both the Instrument Cluster and the InControl Remote app. Happy Days!
The guy in the video above has also posted a handy video explaining how to do the oil change
As the car is almost at its warranty expiry, I will take the vehicle in for a main service (when it gets to 62k) to main dealer/good independent and do the interim oil changes myself. Cost £98 all in. Approx £80 for the 6.53lt oil (2x5l is usually cheaper), £12 for the oil filter (genuine LR), new sump plug (genuine LR) £6. Used engine Oil is disposed of at our local Waste Recycling Centre.
