HOW TO: Reset Maintenance Codes
Here is a How-To for manually resetting the "Maintenance Required" code that comes up each time your CanAm is due for maintenance per whats programmed from the factory. This way does not require the BUDS software that the dealer uses, its just a little long winded....but it will save you money unless you just have an awesome dealer that will plug up to the computer for you for free. I got this in the form of a print-out directly from the service manager at my dealer....who just happens to be really cool.
1. ECM must be completely powered down.
2. Transmission in PARK.
3. Turn the Ignition Switch ON.
NOTICE: Engine must NOT be running.
Now the following steps must be done in this order in 4 seconds or less:
1. Press the Override Button.
2. Press the Brake Pedal.
3. Release the Brake Pedal.
4. Release the Override Button.
5. Press the Brake Pedal.
6. Release the Brake Pedal.
7. Press the Override Button.
8. Press the Brake Pedal.
9. Release the Brake Pedal.
10. Release the Override Button.
11. Turn Ignition Switch to OFF and Allow to Power All the Way Down.
NOTE: After turning the ignition switch to OFF, the electrical system stays ON for a moment. Wait till it's completely off.
Next time the ignition switch is turned on the maintenance message will not be displayed. In the event the maintenanc required message is still present or has come back on, do the procedure again.
