    Is there any way to do this without plugging the car in?

    To be fair I have never tested it myself as I tend to use VCDS to reset mine...

    okay its my bad ive just checked again..

    " to reset the longlife display manually, witch off the ignition, then press and hold down the trip reset button, and note that the relevant service will appear in the display turn the digital clock reset knob clockwise and the display will now return to normal.... switch off the ignition to complete the resetting procedure. DO NOT "zero" the display otherwise incorrect readings will be shown


    there ya go thats the extracts
