Anyone tell me how to reset the service indicator on my A3 2ltr 2009 plate
VCDS or VAS
How would I know
The service indicator light comes on advising the service is due in 7 days but I've just had the service done the garage didn't reset it
sorry bud that didn't sound right I was only asking how would I actually be able to tell .
It'll need resetting by a garage with the vw VAS system or by a friendly vcds cable owning forum member...
Odd that your garage couldn't do it?
It was done by Arnold Clark I wouldn't expect anything less from them. The fact they were a vauxhall dealership probably didn't help either they did the service as a good will measure for months of problems
Where are you based ? I'm sure a cable friend will help in exchange for beer tokens. It's a 2 minute job.
Bit far for me but take a look at the map here for users that might be able to help:
If you mean service showing on the dis then try this I know it's a tt in the vid but it also works for the a3.

Cheers ill give it a go
99.9% sure that DIS stalk method only resets the oil service interval and not the main service. You will need someone to help you with a proper VCDS cable and software. Quick job and sure someone close to you will sort for a bit of beer money
Yip your right tried it this morn and it only resets the oil service
What other service would you want reminding of?
Weird because it worked for me, after I done it "service" displaying on the dis went and It didn't come back on till the usual service in 1500 miles. So I presume your still getting a message on the dis after trying it?.
Yip the service message went but came back after the ignition was switched off and on , the oil service will reset this way what year is your a3
Varies with years how the resets are done, eg. doing 08/09 onwards resents via vagcom has been a pita with vcds, but could be done manually instead of using SRI, not sure that's been resolved as yet, but still even manually with vcds is good & quick enough.
