"perform Service" indicator light

Just wondering if anyone can give me some feedback.

I recently purchased an 06 Jeep Commander. When I start it, there's a message that comes up on the odometer that reads 'Perform Service' (where it normally reads the temperature and direction I'm driving). Is that normal? I've read the User's Manual several times and have found the section that shows what messages that will read out under certain conditions. However, it doesn't tell me what that one means.

I was worried that it means to perform some type of maintenance, but then i thought it meant it was ready to 'Perform Service' (i.e. Drive, Reverse...).

Still a little unsure. Can anyone provide some feedback for me?

(if this has been posted, i apologize. i searched the forums and couldn't find anything on it.)

Re: "perform Service"

If you hit the menu button on your dash there is a service interval. That can be set to varying mileages between 2000-4000 miles, or something like that. Likely, it was set, and the dealer didn't reset it if/when they serviced when you bought it. Do you know when the last oil change was?

Congrats on your new Commander and welcome to the board. It's just a reminder for service you want performed at a certain mileage that you set the way RedCommander said.

Re: "perform Service"

If you have the NAV system it is set there under the menu item labeled vehicle maintenance.

Re: "perform Service"

when it says "perform service", you press and hold the reset button until it resets. In the menu options, set it for the interval you want to be reminded to get an oil change. I dont think you can turn off the option though.

just remember PRESS and HOLD - RESET.

The NAV system keeps its own maintenance interval. It is separate from the EVIC computer maintenance service interval. In other words, resetting the NAV system service message will not affect the "perform service" message on the EVIC. At least that is how mine works...

I'll take your word for it. I have not seen the perform service come up on the EVIC but have seen (and set) the values in the NAV system.

Re: "perform Service"

Funny semi-related story: When we test drove the Commander we bought I noticed while I was fiddling with the controls that the service interval was set to 5,000. We bought the vehicle and on the way home I noticed that the dealership set the interval to 3,000 while they were cleaning it up to give to me. Sneaky sneaky. It was already back at 5,000 by the time I pulled it into the driveway.

Re: "perform Service"

If it's still under warranty you should go ahead and change it back to 3000...

Why? If he is doing a 5000 mile service interval, it wouldn't do much good to be reminded every 3000.
