Hello, sorry new here but hoping to get some advice. I've had my 60 plate Giulietta for 5-6 years and since warranty expired have had it serviced at an independent Alfa only specialist with no problems. Now moved further away and this isn't as convenient as it was. In the early days before going there we had some issues with a local garage being unable to reset the computer after an oil change or similar - at the time i had to drive miles and pay the local dealership to reset.

I'm tempted to try the local village garage for now due fixed schedule service and MOT but am worried that they are going to have issues with the computer? Obviously they deal with all makes of cars but probably don't see loads of Alfas. Is there a specific issue with local garages not being able to reset the computer after a service because of Alfa software needed or was i just unlucky before?

Many thanks

There are two counters to reset.

The service indicator and the oil change indicator.

You can do both with a laptop, the cable set and Multiecuscan.

If the oil change counter runs out it flashes the low oil pressure light on and off, which is very worrying if you don't know what it is really for.

Thanks - do most garages have this?

Probably not. But many members on here do - give an indication of where you live, and its quite possible someone will help you with this - I offer a service to my AROC Section members to plug in my laptop and clear stuff like this or read fault codes.
