Can anyone please give me some help! Im about to start hooking up my gti, but i wanna fix a problem that keeps comin up. Anyways my SERVICE NOW light keeps coming up for me too change my oil, but its already changed and theres the right amount of oil in it, plus my car only has about 6k miles on it. I took it to the dearler after he resisted the computer it came back on a day later, and then the check Oil picture light came on. I took it to the dealer again and they told me they fixed it, its been a week and now my SERVICE NOW light came on again, and i dont think the mechanic at the dealer knows too much about gti's cause the first time i took it to him he thought the Oil light was suppose to come and stay on everytime the car is started even though it stayed on for more than a minute! Ill apprectiate any advise i can get, thanks!

If I were you, I would try to find a new dealership! Or buy a VagCom and turn off that damn warning notice yourself. Thats gotta be annoying

i had the smae problem, went to the dealer, and they were straight ass holes to me. its 5 minutes of work to tunr that light off (including driving up to the computer, plugging in, resetting, unplugging and backing up) and they wanted to charge me for it....

here's the solution

to reset your service indactor without VAG-Com or the dealer:

without the key in the ignition, hold the 0.0 button down 3-5 seconds

holding the 0.0 button down still, insert the key and turn forward (do not turn car on)

release 0.0 button (should say service now at this point)

then hold the m button for a couple seconds

Thats it!!

hope this helps
