    Reset Service Light

    Hi

    I have searched the forum and found various threads detailing how to reset the service light.

    However it doesnt work on my car.

    The Service light comes up in the centre autocheck display when i start the car, not where the miles are displayed.

    Can anyone tell me how to reset the light?

    The car is a 99.5 1.8T Quattro Sport.

    Thanks

    interesting, mine is an identical car, (actually Nov 99) but the service light comes on in the mileage indicator.

    Does it require VAG com?
    you have treid the old "holding the buttons down when you turn the ignition on" trick?

    I have a 97 1.8T Sport and this reset thing never worked on mine.

    A4 Quattro Sport - Where are you based as I have access to VAG-COM I could get it reset for you.

    Not sure i doubt it, the freeware version is very limited. I have access to the full-monty. Where abouts in the fine country of Scotland are you?

    I managed to reset it last night. I think i was holding in both the clock button and odometer button at the same time, when i turned the ignition on. Thanks anyway.
