Citroen C3: Indicators / Service indicator

The servicing information is expressed in terms of distance (kilometres or miles) and time (months or days).

The alert is given at whichever of these two terms is reached first.

The servicing information is displayed in the instrument panel. Depending on the version of the vehicle:

  • The distance recorder display line indicates the distance remaining before the next service is due, or the distance travelled since it was due preceded by the "-" sign.
  • An alert message indicates the distance remaining, as well as the period before the next service is due or how long it is overdue.
