    Default Audi B6/B7 S4/A4 DIY: Service Indicator Reset

    I know this is a very simple one, but always good to have. After your done with your oil change and other regular maintenance you will need to reset your service indicator, this can be done with vag-com, but some of you like me don't have one yet. Here is how to reset it without using a vag-com:

    1. Put key to the off position

    2. Push down the wrench button

    3. Turn key on while still holding the wrench button, but don't turn on the car

    4. While still holding the wrench, push 0.0 next to the wrench

    Your service is reset!


    And with VAG-COM:

    Audi has included a Service Interval Reminder that includes oil mileage interval, the service mileage interval, and the service time interval. To reset the Service Reminders using VAG-COM:

    Using the current version of VAG-COM, simply go into Applications then click on SRI Reset. VAG-COM will automatically interrogate the cluster to determine what if any reset parameters are available. Click this link for more information.

    If you are using an older version of VAG-COM then you should follow these instructions:

    1998 and Newer:

    [Select]
    [17 - Instruments]
    [Adaptation - 10]
    Enter channel 02
    [Read]
    The "Stored Value" is the current value for that channel.
    Enter the "New" value of 0 (zero)
    [Test]
    [Save]

    Note: It is normal for the display to show something like "--/--" instead of an actual distance/time to service after resetting until you have driven some distance.

    Pre-1998 models ... or if Channel 02 is not available:

    [Select]
    [17 - Instruments]
    [Adaptation - 10]
    Enter the correct channel from the list below in "Channel Number"
    [Read]
    The "Stored Value" is the current value for that channel.
    Enter the "New" value of from the list below.
    [Test]
    [Save]

    Channel 05 should be the distance until the next Oil Service.
    It is in thousands of kilometers. Let's say you want the Oil
    Service light to come on in 5000 miles. That would be 8000 km.
    Put the value 8 into channel 05. The "standard value" used by the US
    dealers would be 12 (7500 miles).

    Channel 06 should be the distance until the next In-1 Service.
    Same units as above. Standard value would be 24 (15,000 miles).

    Channel 07 should be the time until the next In-1. In-1 lights
    up based on time or distance, whichever comes first. This is in
    10's of days. Standard value would be 36 for 360 days.

    Channel 08 would be time until the next In-2. In-2 is based
    strictly on time. Standard value is 72 for 720 days (about
    two years).
