    Hi everyone was wondering if anyone has a scanner around the northwest Manchester/Liverpool area. I want to scan my car to see if there is any problems plus I need to reset my service indicator because it's due in about 10 days. I have a 2.0l tdi 2010 I am happy to pay someone to do it and happy to drive to you.

    Many thanks jonny

    To reset your service indicator just pull the right Toggle on clocks out when starting your car and hold for 10 secs this will reset it to 365 days/9000 miles

    I've also tried this reset as stated in the cars log and it doesn't work for me either! A little annoying as I used a fairly cheap scan tool which wrongly set it to 1400 miles haha! Interested to know why this won't work/how to make it work!

    I actually got this to work yesterday, don't know how you lads have tried it but from memory the book implies to just switch the ignition on, which I did, but this time I actually started the engine and just held the reset stalk out - was definitely longer than 10 seconds also but eventually it resets (by showing dashes for a moment)

    Was you pulling it out while turning the key and starting the engine ? Or pulled it out after u had started it. I pulled it while starting the car with my other hand but it didn't work.

    No, started the engine and when it fired pulled the stalk - you don't have to be lightning quick with it or anything just soon after it starts (it will display the wrench icon for quite a while anyway)
