Volkswagen Reset Engine Service Light

If you’re looking to reset your maintenance reminder light, the short videos below may help, depending on the year and model of your Volkswagen. Sometimes, however a visit to the Volkswagen dealer is required.


As a reminder, you are not required by law (or to maintain the warranty) to service at a dealer. You will want to follow the manufacturer’s suggested maintenance guidelines, however.

If you go to the dealer with a repair invoice stating that the manufacturer recommended services were done by a professional auto repair facility, they “should” reset your light. They may give you a hard time.

The dealer may want to, and be entitled to, charge you for this reset procedure. The charge, however, should not exceed .2 hours (or $20 @ $100 per hour).
