Vag-com Service Indicator Reset

DP, please add this information in correct file as well, I am lazy tonight:

Select 17-Instruments
Select Adaptation (10) under advanced functions
Enter Adaptation Channel Number: 42 and select "Read"
The window should read: "Minimum value mileage" and Min. Value Oil in 100 Miles
The stored value should read "50" for 5000 mile intervals
Enter "100" for 10000 mile intervals
Select "Save" and select "Yes" when VAG-COM asks "Are you SURE?"



You may also need to adapt the service interval days:

Select 17-Instruments
Select Adaptation (10) under advanced functions
Enter Adaptation Channel Number: 49 and select "Read"
The window should read: "minimum time interval" and Min. Value Insp. in 1 Days
The stored value may read "180", if it does continue
Enter "365" for 365 days
Select "Save" and select "Yes" when VAG-COM asks "Are you SURE?"


You can also reset the service reminder with the VAG-COM

Select 17-Instruments
Select Adaptation (10) under advanced functions
Enter Adaptation Channel Number: 02 and select "Read"
The window should read: "Service Reminder" and ServRemInd Closed Reset
Enter "00" as the new value
Select "Save" and select "Yes" when VAG-COM asks "Are you SURE?"
To verify the settings briefly press and hold the trip counter reset button until the display reads "Service in 10,000 mi / 16,000 km or 365 days".

Im still dont know how to recode, i only have the boxes for check or unckeck and everybody told me "change bit 9 from 14 to 0A" or something like that, how i do it? U only have 8 boxes uncheked!

I purchase my Vagcom here in Mexico like in 100USD, HEX+CAN-USB. Very chip :thumbup:

Dpham does your list apply to 06 models with a birthday of October 05? I know the disclaimer at the top says for 07 with a born date of June 06. I am still trying to figure out why lucifer wouldn't accept VagCom work that Andy(SoCalComatose) tried on my car.

they're probably telling you to change the hex value, which is the yellow 07 in this pic, for byte 0

well, i already got it to work on your car, but to answer your question, it should be very similar for 06 gti's. some other cars like rabbits might have a different cecm, and maybe other modules too, so it might be slightly different. as a rule of thumb, you need to read the text, to make sure it makes sense. the text might vary, depending on the version of the vag-com that you have.

Dan, I just wanted to tell you.... EVERYTHING worked. I got to play with the windows last night and it was awesome! Thanks a lot for helping me out. And I don't get a headache driving now that the seatbeat dinger is disabled! Thanks so much!

hey - i have a quick question - i was thinking about changing my drl's to the foglights - now, if i do that - when i actually turn on the lights, will the fog lights go off automatically? or do they stay on ALL the time?

believe it or not - driving with both fogs and low-beams is illegal in chicago...

the fogs will shut off when you turn on your headlights if you use fogs as drl's. you need to pull the switch out to enable the fogs with the headlights on.

i don't know exactly what's wrong, just that i've seen that error before on other cars.

It seems that the VAG-COM will adjust just about everything electrical on a VW, will it let you fix the speedometer error? My dealer has no idea, but then again I had to print out these codes to get him to make the fogs as DRL's. He was more than happy to make changes just never looked into all the posibilities before.

So far I've seen:

1. Windows up/down from key-remote.
2. Fog lights as DRL's.
3. Disable seatbelt dinger.

Are there any other useful modifications that people have done through VAG-COM?

Logs are the most important things, can be done by VagVom.

useful is a relative term, but look at the link in the first post, and it'll tell ya some of the items that could be changed with the vag-com.

Is there a way to change the # of blinks when using the turn signals by slighting pressing. They currently blink 3 times when you press and release real quick.

Can you change it to 4 or 5 blinks?
