Clearing "Service Required"
Right as I start my car I get a 1 second "Service Required" message that goes away very quickly on its on. Mine is a 15 and I have seen the procedures on clearing it in several forums and youtube videos. This procedure is also spelled out in my OBDII diagnostic tool. However no matter how many times I try it still comes up. I even tried the method for the 2014 and early models (turn on ignition, get in the display menu and go all the way to the bottom, hold the menu "down" button and the "trip reset" button at the same time for 10 seconds) and that didn't work either.
The procedure for the 2015 is to turn on the ignition, open the hood, open the drivers door, and then fully depress the accelerator and brake for 60 seconds. Then turn off the ignition. I am popping the hood but not fully opening it (but it is giving the "hood open" indication on the display). The one thing that is odd is that in step #4 it says "maintenance resetting information will be displayed on the instrument cluster". But I don't get anything but warnings that my door and hood are opened. Has anyone with a 2015 or newer had any luck?

I’ve never done the pop hood method, but I do the first method you listed and it always worked for me. I followed a simple YouTube video.
