i found a post that says to clear the service codes you turn ignition to "on" without starting engine and fully depress the accelerator 3 times in 5 seconds, i have not tested this so may be incorrect please let us know whether this works, also do you have a series 1 or 2

Not sure if this needs an app..., just press the accelerator 3 times without starting the engine.

I have an Australian Diesel Cruze wagon and couldn't reset the EOLS Code 82

 

Tried the 3 accelerator pumps but no luck. This might work for some other car, but not mine.

This is my experience, not something I heard or found on the Net:

 

Turned on the ignition

Halfway along the indicator stalk is a menu button

There were 2 options: one had an oil can symbol with 0% and rESEt.

pressed the button on the end of the stalk for a second or so and it went to 100%. Turned the key off.

Thought that had fixed it, but when I turned the key back on I had the error code 82 again and the menu item was back to 0%.

Tried it the next morning with the engine running (held the button for a second, went to 100%) as I was driving to somewhere.

When I arrived, I turned it off and on again and no longer get the error code.

 

I have parked it and locked it a couple of times since, and still ok.

After a week or so I'm going to check if the counter decrements down to 99% or less. 

I expect it would go down 2 or 3% a week because I got about 9 months and 12000 km of Mum's taxi driving before it came on.

(Follow up - Yes it has decremented  to 97% after a couple of drives)

 

Oil change is a piece of cake: Take out the filler plug at the top and then pop off the black plastic cover and the filter holder is at the back left (looking from the front)

The filter is a naked type so you have to unscrew the alloy holder. The filter is clicked into the holder (check the replacement filter to see the circular plastic bit)

I held the plastic tube coming out the other end in a vice and the cover popped of by hand after some wriggling.

It wasn't any more expensive buying the genuine AC Delco Dexos 2 oil but first time you have to get two 5 litre bottles as it takes 5.4litres.

I've had quality issues with non genuine filters so buy the genuine one. Might get a better price from Barlo holden on Ebay

 

I peeled and cut out the Dexos 2 label off the oil bottle and the product seal off the box the filter came in and stuck them in my service manual for proof of using genuine products.

Stuff the dealers when servicing the diesel is nearly twice the price of the petrol.

alsbaitco, just to be on the safe side of things, I would take the car to a shop, and ask them to plug an OBD2 reader, just to see if there is any other error logged in.

 

I've came to realize that our Cruzes, from time to time, have a tendency to behave in an awkward manner, but still, "better be safe, than sorry"

Hi Lagaffe,

 

What have you experienced to form this opinion?

 

My car has no error code now, and runs fine. (Oil Counter is down to 91%)

 

To take it to a shop and pay for nothing kind of defeats the purpose of the exercise wouldn't you think?

 

I'm not worried.

Hi alsbaitco,

 

Glad to know your Cruze is running fine. My suggestion to take the car to a shop, and have done an OBD2 check, was just because you've mentioned that even after reseating the code, the code appeared a second time. It's true that error code 82 is related to the oil life system, but IMHO, only because you deleted the error code from the onboard computer, it doesn't necessary mean that all is fine now, specially taking in consideration that most of the error codes are just generic, and you probably know that not all the codes registered on the car's ECU are reported to the DIC. All this electronic stuff, with error codes and whatsoever is very nice, but it doesn't necessarily mean that I have to trust it.

 

This is just my opinion, just a recommendation, or most likely what I would do (actually I do have an OBD2 scanner, so I would do it by myself)

Hi Lagaffe,

 

It's just a counter, the only reason it occurred twice was I didn't drive it after resetting.

Driving it makes the counter save the value as it decrements.

Turning it off after resetting didn't save the 100% (or 99.99%) value to non-volatile memory, so next time I turned it on, the saved value was still zero.

Counter is still decrementing ok and the car is still fine. There is no problem.
