MB Maintenance reset follow-up issue

Seems that the procedure I found and posted here previously, doesn't seem to work on my 2012 Solera. Could those who have been successful, review the steps posted here previously in January 2013 (below) and contibute to this post. It might just be a step I'm missing. All steps seems to work until the last step where I do not see any "reset message" being displayed, confirming a successful reset displayed at the last step. Thus no reset has occured, for me.

1. Doors shut, Turn key to on position.
2. Wait for reminder mileage to clear (few seconds)
3. Hold “0” button down until you hear beep.
4. Release “0”, push “M” button repeatedly until see reset ‘51’
5. Release “M” button Press “0” button(6 seconds)until #2 displayed
6. Press “0” again briefly & see reset message.
7 This resets for 10,000 miles

Any input would be greatly appreciated.

That is exactly the procedure you posted earlier, and I used successfully (at 10,000 miles). The 20K mile maintenance is bigger - includes changing the fuel filter. I had that done, and this time they successfully reset the service indicator for me. Possible the reset for the more significant maintenance is different? Seems unliklely...

DEF message

Anyone know why it takes so long to fill my DEF tank? Is there an air vent that needs to be cleared? It will only take a small amount of DEF at a time and you have to wait until it works its way down into the tank. Seems like an air lock or something.

Something is wrong. I filled mine yesterday with two gallons and it took about 5 minutes which included opening the hood, taking off the cap and the caps of both the gallon jugs. The fluid flowed in the opening smoothly.

This is a Winnebago Via on a Sprinter chassis. The tank is located on the side behind the door but is fastened to the chassis. I've had nothing but problems with it since it was new. Just had it serviced and it is on a long trip with my nephew and his family.

That is not where the DEF fill is for ours. Ours is under the hood in front of the washer fluid.

Come on guys, could we please stay on topic here. If you have an alternate issue, such as a DEF tank fill issue, start a seperate title. Now back to what I was asking about. I'm talking about the 10,000 mi reset for the first scheduled oil change. Can anyone add to this topic. Am I missing a step?

I'm sorry, when I had my 10,000 mile maintenance done, the MB dealership reset mine, so I have no clue. I'm putting this on here, so it will bring this string back up to the top for you.

White Solera - here is a link to a you-tube video of resetting the service indicator: .
I think it is the same as your instructions - but maybe you can pick up something here different from what you have tried - Good Luck -

Thanks. Thats exactly how mine functions until the last step when holding down the "O" odometer button, to get the "done" indication. Mine doesn't display a done when holding it down. Might have to visit the MB steeler on this one.
