VW Service Interval Reminders
Updated  23 Feb. 2010

Ross-Tech is not responsible for any damage or problems that may result from following these instructions. They are to be used at your own risk.

Some VW's have 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 VCDS simply click on the SRI Reset button. VCDS 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:


General Service Reminder Instructions:

[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.


In non-US model cars, VW has included a Service Interval Reminder that includes oil mileage interval, the service mileage interval, the service time interval, and in some cases oil quality and driving style. To reset the Service Reminders using VAG-COM:

Enter the correct channel from the chart below in "Channel Number"
[Read]
The "Stored Value" is the current value for that channel.
