Driving home the other night from Transporter Fest, my O2 LED came on. Kind of shocked me after I
had a no start situation earlier in the day. The Westy was running fine without any hiccups at the
time the LED lit up so I kept on driving. Once I had a chance to search the samba for some info I found
threads talking about how this LED was not a warning lamp but a friendly reminder to change your sensor.
I don't really want to change out this sensor if I didn't need to so I just reset the dash LED.

Here is a couple of pics to maybe help the next person that has their LED lite up while they are behind the
wheel.

Just push in the button till you hear a Click and the LED will not be on any more.

A question often asked and often answered but rarely documented so well with photos!
Good Job!

Applause

great pictorial Tim,

now unplug the harness and utilize the wires & LED for another purpose.
i.e. Propex indicator, inverter indicator, fog light indicator, or anything else that's more useful than a archaic service indicator.
