Last Updated on June 7, 2022 by Nick

Good morning everyone, and welcome to van tip. Today, I want to share a quick tip about resetting the oil service and inspection light on a VW Volkswagen Crafter. I would think this will work works on all models of the VW Crafters, and I would think it will also work as well on Mercedes Sprinters because they’re more or less exactly the same up to that point.

So now I’m going to share with you what it was now; a few days ago, I had an issue where my service light came on. Basically, this warning light telling me that I needed to change the engine oil. So I’ve done it, and now I want to reset it.
