How do I reset the service reminder on my 2019 Haval H2?

Answered by CarsGuide 4 Nov 2021

While some makes and models have a simple, DIY method for cancelling this reminder, it seems these late-model Havals do not, and the service indicator needs to be cancelled via the diagnostic port and a laptop with the correct, Haval-specific software. Which could mean a trip to your nearest dealer.

Did you have the vehicle serviced at a non-Haval workshop? Given the relative scarcity of Haval dealerships, that’s the reality for a lot of owners, but not every non-Haval workshop has the software to cancel the reminder. One option is to phone around local workshops to see if they have the software to perform this task. The other is to put up with the service indicator beaming at you constantly and remembering when the next service is due. A lot of old-school workshops put a little sticker at the top of your windscreen listing the date and mileage that the next service is due. It’s a nice touch.

Is there a way to cancel the service light on the instrument cluster in my 2018 Haval H9 without taking the car to a service centre?

Answered by CarsGuide 21 Oct 2021

There’s nothing wrong with having your vehicle serviced by a non-Haval mechanic as a registered workshop will still be authorised to stamp your service booklet and maintain your factory warranty. For many people, a non-Haval workshop is the logical choice as the Haval dealer network is not as wide as some of its competitors. But some independent workshops will forget or not know how to cancel the service indicator on the dashboard, and that’s probably what’s happened in this case.

How do I reset the service indicator on my Haval H2 2020?

Answered by CarsGuide 11 Oct 2021

If you have a look through the owner’s manual of the vehicle, you might find a method of using the info-screen menus to achieve this. It’s more likely, however, that you’ll need to plug the appropriate scanning tool into the car’s diagnostic port to reset this reminder light. At which point it’s not a home-driveway job.

I’m guessing that you had the car serviced at an independent workshop rather than a Haval dealership, as the latter would have known the procedure to reset the light. Which is fair enough as Haval does not have the dealership coverage of a car-maker like, say, Toyota or Ford. The point being that you need to make sure that any workshop you use for servicing while the car is under factory warranty, is licensed and certified to stamp your service handbook to keep your warranty valid. You don’t have to use a Haval dealer, but the workshop you choose needs to be a professional operation or you stand to kiss your warranty goodbye.

2019 Haval H2: What are the headroom and legroom measurements?

Answered by CarsGuide 7 Mar 2020

Detailed information like this is not usually included in the sales brochure. Nor do many (any?) road tests of a particular vehicle usually go into such detail. So in the end, I had to contact Haval Motors Australia which, in turn, contacted head office in China to find this info.

So, here’s how it pans out Kim: All the legroom figures are dependent on where the front seat is positioned and in the H2, front seat legroom is anything from 870mm to 1060mm. Rear seat legroom is from 650 to 910mm. In the H6, the same figures are 790 to 1000mm and 710 to 950mm respectively.

When it comes to headroom, front seat headroom in the H2 is 990mm and in the rear it’s 970mm. In the H6, the equivalent figures are 990mm and 950mm.

In the end, of course, those figures are just numbers and a far better idea is to visit a Haval showroom and take a seat in both vehicles to really see whether they suit you.

Can I wash a Haval engine?

Answered by CarsGuide 15 Nov 2019

 I can’t imagine why you couldn’t wash the engine, just don’t flood it with water when you’re doing it.
