    1. Your Audi is very new, still do not know exactly how to reset service light but you can try this procedure. Your Audi dealer resets the display after each service. You can only reset the oil change display yourself. To do this, select function selector button > Service interval display > Reset oil change interval. The next oil change will be indicated as being due 15,000 km or one year (fixed service interval) after the oil hange interval is reset.

    1. Hello Michael Olsen, if the car suffered an accident and because it the airbag light is on, you can disconect the yellow connector situated under the front driver seat. Or you can turn off on your Audi A4 airbag check light with a VagCom Device.

      Attention if the airbag light in your car is on without having an accident the airbag light is on beacause does not work. Take extra care and go to an Audi A4 authorized service.

    1. On your multifunction display go to settings and scroll down to SERVICE and then push ok. The reset is there. You cant see it at first because it is on the second page of menu items. Just keep scrolling down and you will see.

    I have an Audi A4 2006 TDi, it was recently serviced, since the service the oil warning light has stayed on (even though oil level & pressure OK) I have tried the reset procedure shown on this website which works for about 10 miles and then the warning light comes back on, can anyone tell me how to clear the fault. Sound like it might be a faulty sensor?

    1. This is the correct procedure how to reset service oil light on your Audi A4 B7. I do not know what is the cause that the warning light has recurred after you reset. Please describe to me how it looks the oil service light what color is red or yellow, and in what place appears. It might be another indicator much worse than the service.

    1. Try this, turn the engine on without starting the engine, accest the menu, select CAR SYSTEM, then select service & check, after that select service interval, reset service interval and select yes.

  6. Hi there I have an audi a4 b7 2.0 tdi sline se 2008. I got my turbo replaced and with that an oil change service only and wanted to reset the service cluster to reset back. The audi specialist used the fault reader device to reset it but instead it deleted it completely, so now each time I press the service button I just —— with no count own or duration before next service as before. I have tried the procedures on some websites but hasn’t made any difference can you help.

    Also I am now getting yellow minimum oil light warning on my display and not sure what it is. Any assistance will be good.

    1. Hello Vik, hard to say if you can change the service time with dash board buttons on your Audi A4 B7. Why you don’t go back on that service and ask him to resolve your problem.

      If you getting yellow minimum oil light indicator on your monitor check the dipstick to make sure you do not have problems with the engine oil.

      All I can say is that if the warning light is yellow the error is not so bad and you can drive your car on a service. If the warning light is red should stop the engine immediately and take the car on a platform to a service.

      1. Hi Admin thanks for your reply, right I did not go to Audi directly as I then found an Audi and Porsche specialist to replace my turbo for a new one and at the same time do an oil service change my oil, was way cheaper especially being in Europe.

        I am working I’m Stockholm Sweden and not back in the UK till late September. I did take it back to the service person and they only had 2 options to reset or delete this and he reset it but now in my display is only shows dashes and he’ s now sorry that he can’t do anything else. It was frustrating for him not able to fix the issue, could I take it to Audi to programme it?

        Also how would one know if the car has a balance shift or not as I am doing a lot of reading that cars without should be ok others not. I am hoping it’s something minor or least just sensor. As before I thought it was due to my turbo why it drinks a lot of engine oil but after it be oil serviced last week, yesterday I get the yellow warning light.

      2. Hi Admin

    Hi, I have a 2007 Audi A4 and I have an indicator that says “Service!”. The oil service is not due for another 3 months. I spoke to Audi and they said that the “Service!” indicator comes up as they programmed this to happen as the brake fluid is due to be changed. Do you know how I can reset this or switch it off? Thanks, Warren
