All right I have a 2017 VW Tiguan and I’m going to show you how to reset the service and the inspection light as well on it. It’s quite a simple procedure on this. So the way you do this is:

With Basic Display (Service Reset)

  • The first step is turn the key off
  • Next, hold the 0.0/SET button down and then you turn the key to the on position but don’t start the car

With Basic Display (Inspection Reset)

To reset the general inspection reminder is very similar but with one difference you need to turn on your hazard lights. So let’s do it.

  • First, make sure you switch the hazards light on

  • So the next thing you do is within 20 seconds to the left there’s another little button, so you just press that and it should be reset

  • Turn the key off
  • Now turn on the hazard lights

Time needed: 3 minutes.

So now we have a 2020 VW Tiguan. This car is already serviced, so I changed the oil and filter, and also, the full inspection was performed. So we can reset two reminders over here: one is for the oil change, and the second one is for the general inspection. So let’s try to do it.

  1. Turn the car off

    Make sure the vehicle is completely stopped

  2. Press and hold the 0.0/SET button

    The button is located on the cluster

  3. Turn on the ignition without starting the engine

    While keeping the 0.0 button you press the START-STOP button without step on any pedal

  4. Press the 0.0/SET button to confirm

    After that, you will see the message come up on the dash. The first message is Reset Oil Change Service? But if you hold it a bit longer the second one will come up and say Reset Inspection Interval? You can confirm the question by press the 0.0/SET button

With Digital Cluster

  • Put on the ignition
  • Use the ◄or► button until we get to the DRIVING DATA
  • After you get to driving data you need to use the ▲or▼ arrows button to get to the RANGE and click OK

  • When you see that screen pop up you press and hold OK until it bring you to the SERVICE MENU
  • From there you can RESET OIL SERVICE or RESET INSPECTION

So that’s all you have to do. So now you will check the following oil change is in ten thousand miles which is almost more than a year you know one year is equal 365 days. But I don’t recommend it; I’ll recommend you guys to at least change the oil twice a year to keep your engine nice, smooth, and healthy. So anyway love you guys; thank you so much for reading, and I hope this video has been helpful. Good luck!
