You have to reset warer in fuel service reminder. Using SDD or icarsoft

Wow! Peter, you have a bit of a stammer! Welcome to the forum though. I deduce that you're having an issue with the water-in-fuel warning? Not sure why you'd change the oil for this, but fresh oil is always good. The sensor is fitted to the underside of the fuel filter which itself is fitted to the left rear of the engine bay, easily accessible from the top. Release the clamp on the filter and it can be lifted up to access the sensor. If the wiring plug is disconnected or there's a broken wire, this will trigger the warning too. The sensors have been known to fail, they're not particularly cheap but are easy to change. Put something under the fuel filter to catch the inevitable spill of fuel if you remove the sensor. I have a Classic 3.0 (2010 MY) and as far as I'm aware, there's no periodic service reminder for the water in fuel sensor on my car.

I think there is one fir classic. It doesn’t trigger it that often. But the error is the same. Not just like a service reminders. This won’t happen if you use dealer or jag specialists to service the car as they reset it. Not sure about mileage but I guess it’s 60k miles or 5yrs.

I've read elsewhere that the wire for the water in fuel sensor sometimes get pinched under the air filter box, and damaged.
