  1. Después de reestablecer el oil service, aparecieron las luces verdes, pero desapareció en el mismo cuadro o visor, el reloj y las palabras oil service / inspeccion, antes, al poner en marcha el vehículo, aparecían las luces, el reloj indicador y la palabra oil service, al ir avanzando el consumo (luz amarilla) aparecía (siempre arrancando el motor) la luz (amarilla) el reloj indicador y la palabra inspeccion, después de realizar el cambio y resetear el servicio, solo me aparecen las luces verdes (sin reloj y sin palabras), se podrá restablecer el cuadro a como era antiguamente?. Muchas gracias.
