This information is in your SLK Operator's Manual.

From my 2001 Manual:

1. Turn key in steering lock to position 2.

2. Within 4 seconds press button (1) twice. (The button left of odometer)

3. The present status for days or distance is displayed. Within 10 seconds turn key in steering lock to position 0.

4. Press and hold button (1), while turning key in steering lock to position 2 again. The present status for days or distance is displayed once more. Continue to hold button (1). After approx. 10 seconds a signal sounds, and the display shows 10,000 miles.

5. Release button (1).

Stupid question (and yes, I looked in the owner's manual) but can you REALLY go 10,000 miles between oil changes? That sounds suspiciously high - even for synthetic. My car is coming up on 5,000 miles since I bought it (with fresh oil & filter) which is when I typically change out. Is it REALLY going to be okay going longer? I realize these cars have enormous sumps (something like 8 qt. on the V6) but still - oil degredation is oil degredation.

There's an enormous amount of stuff around on this if you search - a lot is based on opinions .

I rang Penrite oil who are happy to give their side of things and they reckon that the additives start to degrade at 7-8000kms (near enough to 5000 miles)

For the sake of a few bucks, I don't risk it

Since I've been on synthetic changes at 8000kms, my oil is still a clear dark honey colour at 8k -- gives me a warm fuzzy feeling!

I followed the instructions perfectly (it's the same as in my manual), but nothing changed. Is there a step missing, here?

I had to do it a couple of times before I got the sequence right. Just try again.

Actually, I tried it about five or six times last night, exactly as its listed in the manual. No beep, no change in the reading. I'l' try it again when I get home.

One thing they don't tell you is that it will not work with the door open. Most people sit in the drivers seat and leave the door open. The instructions should say to get in and shut the door. Try it again with the door shut.

Hope this helps...

1. Get in the car, sit down in the drivers seat and shut the door.

2. Turn key in steering lock to position 2.

3. Within 4 seconds press button (1) twice. (The button left of odometer)

4. The present status for days or distance is displayed. Within 10 seconds turn key in steering lock to position 0.

5. Press and hold button (1), while turning key in steering lock to position 2 again. The present status for days or distance is displayed once more. Continue to hold button (1). After approx. 10 seconds a signal sounds, and the display shows 10,000 miles.

5. Release button (1).

6. Open door and get out of the car.
