Hi everyone,

The supertech service light (an amber wrench) appears on the dash after the mileage is up for my 1000km.

I'd prefer to do my own oil changes etc.

Is there only 1-way to remove it? i.e. going to the dealer?

Anyone knows of another way to remove it? I checked the owners manual and it only says to go to an authorised dealer.

I asked this very question several months ago. Maybe someone has the answer by now. My Vespa dealer said he’d try and find out; haven’t checked in with lately.

Maybe disconnect the battery for a short while?

On the BV350 the light is reset by holding the Mode button in while turning the ignition key On. Continue holding the Mode button for several seconds until the light starts flashing, then turn the key Off.

It might be a similar sequence on the GTS. Have you tried that?

The service reminder light would be pretty useless if it reset any time the battery was disconnected for any unrelated reason.

Some cars can be reset using that method if it is just a minor service reminder. Anything major would likely generate another light.

Nah. The light will usually come back on in a day or so if you don’t use the “official” reset method.

You are talking about the Check Engine light. This is about the Service light that tells you when to change the oil or belt.
Never saw a vehicle that would default the service reminder, that would defeat the purpose of the light.

Suppose your scooter is in the middle of its service/oil change interval. Then you take the battery out for storage over the winter. Would the service counter reset and forget to tell you when an oil change is due? Of course, that's logical thinking but not all is logical.

For that long a time it would as your Keep Alive power source would die.
It would do the same if you removed the battery and held the battery cables together for 20 minutes.

I succumbed and sent it to the dealer to get the light removed.

Yes it’s the service light NOT the CEL (check engine light)

Disconnecting the battery does nothing. Fine to take it out for winter

Your dealer should read the manuals....LOL

MAINTENANCE ICON
This function indicates the scheduled maintenance interventions. For each time the key is turned to "ON", once the instrument panel has performed the initial check, if the value of the remaining kilometers until the next intervention is less than 300 Km (186.41 mi), the indicated icon will flash for 5 seconds. When the service mileage is reached, with each key "ON", the icon remains switched on steady until it is reset after the service operations are carried out.

MAINTENANCE ICON RESET
To reset the maintenance icon, proceed as follows:

- Turn the ignition switch to "ON";

- Briefly press the MODE joystick upward or downward until the "Battery charge state" function is displayed at the center of the digital display.

Press and hold the MODE button for at least 10 seconds but not more than 15 seconds. Upon releasing it, the maintenance icon switches off.

If the MODE joystick is released without waiting 10 seconds, the maintenance icon will not switch off and the service interval counter will not be reset.

THE MAINTENANCE ICON RESET PROCEDURE MAY ONLY BE PERFORMED WHEN THE VEHICLE IS AT A STANDSTILL (SPEED = 0 Km/h).

Thanks AF1. Obviously there are "dealers" and then there are dealers.
