How To Reset Hour Meter

Posted on  by admin
So I had an hour meter installed at the helm when I bought my boat. This spring, after getting the sonar units back on the boat when getting it ready for another season, I had turned the key to the accessory position to test the units, but failed to turn the key off when I was done.

Ten days later, go back to fiddle with something, and notice I had left the key in accessory mode which resulted in an extra 240 hours on the hour meter.Is there an easy way of re-setting the hour meter to remove the 240 hours?

Maybe disconnect the wires from ignition and connect to a battery in reverse polarity for 10 days?

Or will that fry the hour meter?

Secondly, how do you reset the service light on a John Deere lawn mower?

Turn the ignition key to the "Run" position, but do not start the engine. Leave the key in this position for two hours, then turn the ignition key to the "Stop" position and remove the key. The service timer will reset and come on when the next service interval is reached.

What does ch6 oil mean?

The hour meter reminds you to change the oil periodically. The CH6 is supposed to be CHG to remind you to change the oil. The hour meter gives this message after 25 hours of use. You might have not noticed previous reminders, or the hour meter might be bad. The Oil Chg message will be displayed for 2 hours and go away.
