Hi, my friend! What’s new? Today we will be working on a Skoda Octavia, and we’re going to be resetting the oil change light, including the inspection service light.

By the way, I know some of the Octavia can do this manually. However, some others are never being able to do that. So it would help if you used a tool to reset it. But apart from that, it’s a super easy job. So come with me and stay tuned.

Alright, I have an Octavia MK3 here, and it’s got the oil service and inspection now warning on in the dash. In this section, I will show you how to reset that. So the reset can be done as follows:

  1. Make sure the vehicle is completely stopped

    Turn OFF the ignition

  2. Press and hold the 0.0/SET button while turning the ignition on

    Hold the 0.0/SET button and as you’re holding turn on the ignition without starting the engine

  3. Keep holding the 0.0/SET button

    Keep holding and then you’ll get the Reset Oil Change message first and then if you wait for it a little bit longer it will change to a Reset Inspection Service message

  4. Press the 0.0/SET button

    As soon as you got the option you want, you have to press the SET button again to confirm

So that’s how easy it is to reset the light. After reading this guide, I hope you can do it yourself with a simple hand, knowing that the job is getting done properly. Thanks for joining me today, and have a great day.
