Saying that, the orange exclamation point in a triangle is a service reminder. Look on page 4|75 of the handbook.
Can you post a link to the manual?
I want to get ahead and start reading before I get my SFS.
Thanks a lot.

You actually control the service reminder feature. You set the interval as to when it comes on.

If you like to change your oil every 3500 miles, or rotate your tires every 7500 miles, or whatever service you like to have performed, you can set it to remind you when it is time. You can set the reminder by date or by mileage.

LOL!!! I'd say it only takes a minute or two to pop the hood ( OK, bonnet for the Brits reading this) check under there things like the oil level, coolant, brake fluid level, etc. OH, AND the windshield washer fluid level.
Sorry I had to add that!!! Really, how many of us, besides me and few others, check things like that on a regular basis ?? Don't forget the tire pressures each month!!! Maybe we depend on the "Big Brother Computer" to watch everything and tell us when something is amiss. Wait!! It DID, we just didn't know what the heck it was telling us!!!

well said man.
sensors go bad. modules stop reading error/trouble codes. reception gets lost. things happen.
not paying attention to your car, simply relying(hoping) that a light/bell/display will light up telling you the error - is asking for trouble. its imperative to learn not only the trouble lights on your car, but to keep a watchful eye on everything from lug-nuts, to fluids, to tire pressures, to noise/smells, and performance issues. you dont have to know the origin of the trouble - just recognize that something is out of place.

How did you get the light to turn off? Have the same issue, but can't find anything in the manual or online.

I assume he filled up the washer fluid container.

The exclamation mark is likely indicating that your SFS is due for an oil change.

When I bought my SFS, the salesman set the service reminder to 90 days and 6,000km. Every day and km driven after that reduced the 'counters' in the HUD until I reached zero. Once I got to within 30 days of needing an oil change, the SFS would beep one-time every time I started the car as a gentle reminder that I was closing in. Eventually I ended up going past 90 days and the counter actually went into negative numbers, showing me that I was actually X number of days BEYOND the recommended service.

I eventually brought my SFS in for it's first oil change about 8 days late and when I received it back, the techs had reset the counter so I've now got another 90 days and 6000km count down in the HUD.
