Last Updated on July 3, 2022 by Nick

What’s up, guys? Jacob here. I’m here with the VW Jetta. Today I’m doing a reset inspection light since I haven’t detailed that on this site today I’m going to tell you about the meaning of the inspection light on a VW Volkswagen Jetta.

So what we’re trying to do here is we’re trying to reset this inspection minder with a bit of a wrench. I did my oil change; make sure to do your oil change first and foremost. It’s not just the reset; you do need to do your oil change to have your car appropriately run and function properly. So let’s go ahead and get started.

VW Volkswagen Jetta Inspection Light - Meaning & Resetting

What Does Volkswagen Inspection Due Mean?

Volkswagen vehicles require regular maintenance to keep them running at optimal levels. These inspections include everything from the running gear to the car’s body. In addition to detecting defects in the electrical system, they check the air conditioning system and the battery to ensure it’s properly charged. Additionally, they contain the tires for cracks, excessive tread wear, and leaks. When the Volkswagen inspection due light comes on, owners should call a dealership to schedule a service appointment.

A Volkswagen inspection due light can be confusing. While the warning light is a reminder to schedule regular service, it doesn’t mean anything is wrong. While it might sound like a significant issue, it’s usually only a sign that the service interval is nearing its end. The warning light will turn off automatically when the service interval has passed, but if it’s past the service interval, it will still display a message that says “Service Now,” – which means you should schedule regular service.
