Hey people im new here, i thought i maybe of some help as i work at a vw dealership in the west midlands as a technician.

these service lights, to save to time and money
ONLY USE THIS METHOD WHEN SERVICING THE CAR YOURSELF!

THIS METHOD SHOULD NOT BE USED ON CARS USING THE VARIABLE (LONGLIFE) SERVICING INTERVAL PROGRAMME


1. put key in ignition at postion 0 (everything off)
2. hold in button which is used to reset milage trip counter
3. while holding in trip counter button switch on ignition, but do not start engine
4. release trip counter reset button
5 turn clock set button to the right for 1 second max
6. release clock set button and turn ignition off, remove key, then replace key and switch on ignition and check the service light has gone out

it may work, it may not. To be totally honest i have never tried it on anything other than vw cars. No harm in trying though.

Didn't work. But then we figured it was down (poss) to the car having a analogue clock, not digital, so no direct connection, electronically, between the clock and the rest of the jiggery-bits that you mentioned in the process.
