Hi All,

So while in the process of changing the Hires of my "new" RT4 (Thanks to user Eke) to Lowres I am still dealing with a partially invisible and upside down screen. And while I never have any failures on my car now I have one that bothers me.

Because of the resolution of the screen the most important bit is missing so when I turn on ignition, a beep sounds, "Service" comes on on the main display and on the Nav display I only read "Level To Low - Repair Needed.

So I checked fluids and all is fine so I suspect the Eolys level which has been serviced about 80.000km ago.

Are there any other warnings of this type? The "service" light goes out after start and the car drives great.

330.000km

Thanks for your advise.

Rgds,

Michiel

If the service light turns off is more likely tire pressure too low.

Agreed. If the SERVICE warning disappears, a few seconds after the warning beep, it’s alerting you to a non-critical warning. It could be one or several things, and TPMS is just one.

Depollution system faulty, Particle filter fluid low, etc, are others that are in the advisory warnings list.

Without the LCD screen, a system scan using Lexia (or DiagBox) is the only way to know for certain.

Well, the tire sensors are all removed. All showing OK in the display. Wouldn't it say pressure too low?

Anyway I will pop by the dealer next week for a readout.

anybody has an idea of how long you can drive before Eolys reservoir is empty after the first warning? If it was this?

Thanks.

When the Eolys level is low the message "FAP level low" or something very similar appears.

In any case there was no ambiguity and, as far as I remember the Service light did not accompany the FAP message.

I posted on here regarding the procedure to refil the Eolys reservoir.....I guess you would have plenty of time/mileage, I think it still has 0.5L left in the tank when the message appears.

Mine is currently showing a similar message, and has been doing so for a month or so — about 200miles. Yes, it does bring on the SERVICE warning, but only for about 15 seconds after engine startups.
