Hello,

I'm looking to turn off the instrument cluster SERVICE indicator in my recently acquired 2003 A4 3.0L Sedan. From the on-line RT manual, I found ...

Home >Products >VCDS >Support >Car Info & Procedures >Audi Service Interval Reminders

1998 and 2008 (for 2009+ you will need to use the SRI Reset button):

[Select]
[17 - Instruments]
[Adaptation - 10]
Enter channel 02
[Read]
The "Stored Value" is the current value for that channel.
Enter the "New" value of 0 (zero)
[Test]
[Save]​

This looks to be a straight forward procedure using my VCDS-Lite, but I would like to verify that it is correct for my 03 A4. I'm guessing the "and" between 1998 and 2008 is a typo and should read "through".

Additionally, I'm also guessing that the indicator trigger is a fixed mileage (or time) value that is stored elsewhere. Is there a procedure for changing this value?

Thanks for your help.

Yes, setting channel 02 to 0 is a "simple reset".

Channel 40 is: Distance since Service (x100 km)
Channel 41 is: Time since Service (days)
Channel 42 is: Minimum Distance to Service (x1000 km)
Channel 43 is: Maximum Distance to Service (x1000 km)
Channel 44 is: Maximum Time to Service (days)

Some clusters get unhappy if you put non-standard values into 42, 43, and 44. So if you wish to have a reminder sooner after a reset than those indicate, it may be better to 40 and 41 upward immediately after the reset.
