Oil degradation message

Is there any truth in the fact that there is an oil degradation reader somewhere? If so I cant imagine how it works. More importantly will my local garage know how to reset it after servicing or does this happen automatically when the oil is changed? Anybody?

Re: Oil degradation message

Yes,there is an oil degredation counter in the software in the ecu,very roughly it is suppose to work out by the amount of lead in your right foot when the oil is due for change.
It needs to be reset,it doesn't just reset itself,the garage that does ut needs to have the right equipment as mentioned already in a similar thread.
