Hi Guy's
This should help a few of you.
Regard's Addam
Audi A4 & A6 Service light reset​
Turn off the ignition
Press and hold the button on the left hand side of the display while turning the ignition on.
Service oil will be displayed.
Pull out the button on the right side of the display until the service prompt is cleared.
The display should now read ---

If the above procedure does not work, outlined below is a alternative procedure.

With the ignition off, push the right button.
Turn the ignition on and then pull the left button.​
This should clear the warning message

It doesn't work for me. ('97 A4 Avant 1.8)
The first procedure you wrote is not good for me because if I pull (cannot be pushed) the LEFT button (from the clock) - it adjusts the clock even without the key inserted.
The alternative procedure doesn't work. I have tried to switch the key to ON position (when all the lights turn on), but without starting the engine. Do I have to start the engine?
What I did:
I pressed the right button (the one close to the km counter display). I turn the key to ON position, and in the trip km counter the text 'IN 1' appears (I understood this means Inspection Required). I then tried pulling the left button, but nothing happened. The text dissapeared as usually after a few seconds, and appeares again at the next start.

Sorry to bring this thread back but for some reason this doesn't work for me.

I have an A4 1.9 TDI 110 1998. The first procedure doesn't work and simply adjusts the clock. The alternative procedure works to the point where I can change oil service to ---. However my display is flashing service Insp at me and this procedure won't reset that as everytime I turn the car back on it comes back.

Any help would be appreciated.

Hi

Thanks for posting this information - I have had service insp flashing for the last couple of weeks... so finally got round to changing the oil & filter this weekend ... It took me 5 mins of sitting in the car turning ignition on and off but it cleared it for me ... the more you try the more obvious it gets... Hold right hand button then turn on ignition... then pressing right hand button swops between OIL & INSP pulling left hand button clears display to ---- and then when you turn ignition off and on its clear! Woo hoo!!

Many Thanks
Dinger

This is how I did it...

The above procedure didn't work for me on my '96 A6 TDI Avant but gave me enough of an idea to figure out one that would:

1 hold right button and turn on ignition - display shows 'OIL' - release right button

2 pull left button until display shows '----'

3 press right button again until display shows 'INSP'

4 pull left button until display shows '----'

Sorted!

It appears there is an OIL AND INSP counter :rolleyes:

Hope this helps people.
