hi guys,

I hope you can help me with this topic.

I bough my C3 as a brand new back in 2007. when the 20,000 mile service was done, on the speedometer i pressed one of the two buttons which reset the milage to 0.
since then i've been driving the car and now its up to 32,000 which adding up to the previous 20,000 makes it 52,000

i want to sell the car and one dealer told me that this is not good and i need to show the actual milage of the car.

i am probably being silly and i hope there is a easy thing here so that the car shows the actual milage rather than 32,000 is currently displays.

i did not take it to any places to mess around with the memory or its computer.

is this actually possible to reset the milage to 0 by the method i did?

your help is really appreciate on this guys.

Hi shomtaba, welcome to the forum.

You can't reset the odometer to 0, only the trip can be rest.

With this type of display
Citroen C3 dashboard controls
Citroen C3 dashboard controls
The odometer mileage is shown in position J

The trip mileage is shown in G

If you are in 'black panel mode' which can hide some items on the display, PRESS BUTTON A, to return to normal mode.
