Hi and thanks for the interest in the product!

Your Service Engine Soon light is unrelated to your oil light or service interval reminders. The reminders and oil light do not indicate faults that relate to trouble codes a code reader would see. The SES light DOES indicate there is a fault code that needs to be checked.

It's important to note that warning lights are only valid when the engine is running. In position 2, the lights are more so for self-diagnosis - to make sure the lights work. If they go away when the car starts, they are not an issue.

The mileage countdown reminder is just that - a reminder. It flashes miles to the recommended service interval, then goes to whatever you have your OBC set to display - temp in your case.

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Thanks again
