    hello mate

    i just did a search and came across this. dont know if it will work but someone posted it.....
    ---------------------
    If carrying out your own service then to remove the anoying service light on start up then try this.

    Press and hold the right button. (odometer reset)

    now switch on the ignition
    (oil lamp will not flash, but on at all times)

    press the right button again
    (insp is now displayed)

    pull left button. (clock set)
    (------ are now displayed)

    Pull left button again

    This works on my A4 tdi (110bhp) but should work on all.


    let me know if this is any good

    That should work. BTW, it tells you how to reset the service indicator in the user manual (if you have one of course)

    The light is triggered by two methods one is a predetermined time from the last service i.e. so many miles covered and the other is AVS, which is dependent on how the car has been driven (Basically).

    This is the procedure required as described above. Save the pic so you can zoom in.
