I know this must come up a lot, but I've been Googleing and running out to my car for the past hour and a half... I'm trying to reset the "SERVICE" display which comes up (along with some beeps) every time I start the car. I've just serviced it myself, assuming I'd be able to reset it using the dash buttons as described in the Haynes manual (book of lies).
My car is a 2002 (52) Audi A3 1.8T Sport 8L. The dash has two buttons; left one is clock adjuster (it can be pulled, pushed and rotated a quarter turn left or right) and the right one is trip reset (which can only be pushed, NOT pulled or rotated).
So far I have tried:
Switch the car off > Press & hold right button > Switch ignition on (but not start it) - Nothing happens.
Switch car off > Press & hold right button > Rotate left button clockwise - Nothing happens
Switch car off > Press & hold both buttons > Switch ignition on - Nothing happens
Switch car off > Pull left button > Nothing happens
I really hope someone might have the answer to this because I'm about ready to blow my brains out! It was supposed to save me a bit of money servicing it myself, but it'll be a total waste if I need to go get it done at a garage so they can reset the light with Vagcom ='(
