Probably because the dealer didn't reset the service counter in the menu system when they did the service.
I hope you are right. Just to be on the safe side, I changed the oil and filter again. I don't think the service counter was reset. Though it still comes up when I switch on the ignition but it goes off after a while.

You can reset the counter yourself. It's in the menu system if you use google translate on your phone you'll find it. There is a guide somewhere on the forum or you can download the guide here.

I've only just started to use the Google translate around the van today... Honestly it's rubbish... Just regurgitating gobbledegook. Almost worse than the original Japanese tbh!! Am I doing something wrong? 🤷🏼‍♀️

I think it struggles a bit reading screens rather than print. Best refer to the English translation guide book. I use it quite a lot when looking at the workshop manual and to be fair it does quite a good job.

I'm going through the PDF manual trying to work out which bits I want to print out of the 332 pages! 🥴

To be fair Google translate doesn't like the printed page either!

Mmm I might be wrong but is that set on English to Japanese rather that vice versa?

If you are doing instant translations I found even slight movement causes problems, better to take a photo and highlight the words, even then you have to be sure the entire thing is highlighted or it can get confused.

Ah thanks Stempy... I'll try again after those tips. Would have to be something simple! 😆

When you think about what it's doing it is amazing that it works at all. Not so long ago we would have been completely flummoxed.

I found the Google translate easier though compared to the guide I downloaded. With Google translate, I spotted the vehicle maintenance ( or is it engine maintenance) on the dashboard. Clicked on it and I saw the oil/ oil filter/ tyre menu and I reset the first two.
