Is the check engine light on? Even if not you need to check for codes. There could be dozens of combinations of issues at play there. Check the computer with a good scanner that checks all system modules for codes.

The manual says you would get that display in the DIC when the car has reached a certain odometer value. It does this to tell you that some type of service is required (I have no idea what type of service would be required or requested). The service reset procedure is done by the following >>>. "Press an hold the trip button while turning on the ignition, then release the trip button". When I do this to my car is says "no items". Yours may display some type of mileage information. Whatever ----- Now press an hold the enter switch for 3 to 5 seconds (left scroll wheel). This action forces a reset of the "Service Reminder Display" You should get a conformation beep when doing this as an indication of a successful reset. IF the service reminder display comes back on with the next ignition cycle, the reset procedure needs to be tried again.

You confused me with that last portion of your post ^^^^^^ "As soon as I put the key ignition into acc it pops up and the ac wont turn on when I start the car but when I take off the hvac batt fuse the service vehicle soon light turns off but no air is blown through the vents" What do you mean with the wording "hvac batt fuse" ?

Makes it kinda read like if a certain type of body related faut code condition exists, it will not only display the car an spanner wrench symbol, but will point to the system that appears to be causing the problem in the first place (in the DIC). If that is so, you have found yet another one of those "did you know your car will do this" conditions. Whether that fuse is installed or removed, you are saying your AC is inop ?

Try pulling the fuse (even if it’s good) in the box under the front hood. Pul the fuse, start the car, turn the car off, put the fuse back in. See if that resets the AC. Good luck !

When mine did these a number of years ago, it was because I'd taken a rock to the a/c condenser :cry:
