2012-2018 Mercedes-Benz G-Class Service Minder Light Reset (G550) – The G-Class (or G-model, G stands for off-road vehicles) is a model series of Mercedes-Benz, which is produced since 1979. In its basic form, the vehicle was hardly changed between 1979 and 2018, but technically it was constantly being improved and updated. These concerned mainly engine variants, the interior and safety features. In 2018, Mercedes-Benz presented a new generation.

On June 30, 2012, a facelift that brought especially a heavily revised interior with itself took place. While on the exterior all W 463 models now have LED daytime running lights mounted underneath the headlights and have been redesigned side mirrors, the interior features a completely redesigned center console and instrument panel. The latter comes from the ML (W 166).
