Wrench light on start up

My polaris service interval diagnostic mode indicator light comes on at start up. Then flashes a couple times then goes off. Is this normal?

Reverse countdown hour meter. It does this when that Meyer counts down to zero to remind you it's time to service.

You can reset it in one hour increments from 1-99 or turn the feature off by going into the diagnostic mode.

Key off
In neutral
Parking break set
Wait 10 secs
Press and hold yellow override button
Turn key to on (engine off)

Should load diagnostic mode. Scroll thru using yellow override button, press and hold when at hour meter screen to reset or turn off.

Getting into diagnostic mode is from memory. Apologies if I screwed it up.

It is telling you that the hour count down meter has reached zero. I believe the factory setting when new is for 50 hours. That is what I re-set mine to after each service so I stay on my service schedule. I would guess you need to service your machine and then re-set the meter to your desired service interval. An hour service schedule is better than a milage schedule IMO.

Depends if whoever serviced it last didn't reset the meter. If this machine is fairly new to you, it may be best to do its service now, and than reset the meter to 50 hours so you know its good to go.

It means that the last person that changed the oil did not reset it, or maybe it was not changed at all.

Here is a link to another thread where Blueline told us exactly how to get into dignostic mode and reset the meter.

Wrench flashing on dash

hope that helps

Oops, I didn't read Blueline's comment above before posting this. I will leave it here anyway incase he did mess it up earlier but it does look right. The link is slightly more detailed.
