    To reset the service light, I use the official JLR SDD software.
    Thanks for that TheBoy, who makes the GM oil? Oils have minimum specs which must be achieved to be able to put the correct labels on the oils if that makes sense. I like Millers Oils because their oils far exceed the minimum specs.
    I will also try that software when I get my Mongoose cable, thanks. Do you know which operating systems it works with? Think I have Windows 7 on my laptop.

    It used to be Fuchs, not sure if it still is. The full specs are on the datasheet on that link. I use that (and other spec GM oils for other cars I have) based on price and convenience. Last lot for the Jag cost £59+VAT for 20l, which is almost enough for 3 changes. And I like to change my oil often - when it costs less than £30 including filter, and 20mins work (including tidying up and drinking tea), who wouldn't

    My SDD is installed on one of my diags laptops, which runs XP (and has had wifi card removed etc etc). I believe it runs fine on Windows 7 (not sure about 64bit though - some diag software seems flakey on 64bit)

    Hi TheBoy, after a little research I can see the GM 5W-30 C1 Fully Synthetic Low Saps Oil does also conform to STJLR 03.5005. So my next question is how do you get a Vauxhall Trade Club account when your not in the motor vehicle industry? Or do you just buy it at retail prices?

    I blagged my Tradeclub, Halfords, ECP etc etc trade accounts. Failing that, being a member of any VBOA affiliated club also gives Tradeclub access.

    Or ring a Vauxhall dealer quoting the part number, and because its a tradeclub part, you may just get it?

    My dealer normally has to order that specific oil in, which usually means next day. Which reminds me, I must call them for more (and some cheap semi for the Omega).
