Service Tool
« on: March 04, 2020, 06:23:26 PM »
Evening guys.

Has anyone successfully used a tool other than the GS-911 to reset their service reminders on their 850s? The Motoscan app and associated adapter for instance?

Thanks in advance.

This isn't what you asked for, but maybe it is useful to someone else.

If anyone is near Arkansas and wants their service reminder reset I can do it with my GS-911 tool. I have 9 slots open.

Old thread but it appears you never got an answer.  I purchased the OBDLink LX, the professional version of the Motoscan app, and even a cheap Motorola Android phone (I use an iPhone usually).
Just yesterday on my '19 F850, I was easily able to reset my service light.  Piece of cake.  Waffled back and forth between this setup and the GS911, glad I went cheap!

LX and Motoscan worked for my 2020 F750GS as well.

I haven't used it for that yet...but I just Googled it and folks have said it will actuate the ABS pump.
I'm not sure if doing this requires the Professional version or Ultimate.
