How to reset "service now" warning?

Can anyone out there tell me how to reset that anoying "service now" alarm that the dealer sets to come on every 10000 k's? I would much prefer to do my own oil changes and not be ripped off at a dealers workshop for the pivilege.

1. Keys out of ignition- press and hold in trip odometer reset button "0.0" on right hand side of display

2. Still holding this button down, insert key into ignition and put to the on position without starting the car.

3. Display will read "service now"

4. let go of the "0.0" button and depress the "m" button on the left hand side of the display. this will re-set the service reminder. There is no confirmation on the display other than the words "service now" will disappear.

You can confirm that the service reminder has been reset, or check how many kms/days remain until service at any time by taking key out of the ignition and holding in the trip reset "0.0" button for between 3 and 5 seconds. The MFD will display miles and hours until next service.

Alternatively you can VCDS it & choose various options like reminder for miles, time etc.

The TPMS button is next to your ESP button. Just press and hold it until the light in your instrument cluster 'Dings!' and extinguishes. 3 second job

thank you! a simple answer to a simple question.. amazing!

u know what? i knew i saw the button somewhere but only checked the tyres tonight in the dark at like 10pm on my way home and couldn't see much in the dark, i had a feeling it was in the scroll menu somewhere & thats the only place I checked, i was going to investigate further tomorrow.

I think I have an electrical gremlin as the tyre pressure was spot on all 4 and i've had other wierd things happening lately!

You still don't understand how it works, the manual explains how it works and when it should be pressed.

If the TPMS has not been set correctly (which clearly it hasn't as you don't know how to do it) it can't operate correctly so it will have nothing to do with the "weird" things that you have happening.

Seriously read the manual and those "weird" things might stop occurring, you'll learn all sorts of things like not touching the brake pedal when on the accelerator or you'll lose power as the electronic accelerator will be cut.

I never had to set it as the dealer explained it was set and after 5months i've never had an issue.

Weird things refers to several! other electrical issues i've had with the head up display.

I will actually read some of the manual more thoroughly though there is one tip that is good advice but please feel free to pull your fucken head in and not act in such a condescending way to me in future.

RTFM and you'd understand you can't just leave it, it should be set after you inflate the tyres.

I answered your question but you clearly wanted someone to wipe your arse and not just explain the process

You might want to start your own thread next time as well rather than hijack someone else's.

ok,ok,ok... just chill fellas.

Did you know that the dealer(sunny coast not brissie) wanted $80 off me to reset the service light, which THEY forgot to reset? 80 DOLLARS!!! 2 Minutes work... 80 DOLLARS!!! hmmmmm, I was a bit pissed off to say the least. Maybe we're all in the wrong trade! You just saved me 80 bucks! Cheers boys!

Not as pathetic as someone who can't wipe his own arse. By the way dickhead you were told about how the TPMS works back when you first posted whinging about it, I guess 6 months isn't enough time for you to open the manual and set the TPMS.

Anyway you can go back to whinging now about how gutless and slow it is compared to your VE SS and how you can't win any street races. Don't forget to complain about electrical gremlins that are linked to your inability to pump the tyres up

Just checked mine out of curiosity.

Says 16000km or 495 days until next service. Which is interesting as according to the Aussie service schedual I am meant to service it in ~4500km.

Even my SWMBO managed to achieve this after her tyres were replaced - all by herself without consulting anything but the manual.
