Re: service light reset
Disconnect negative battery terminal for a few moments, then re-connect, the light will clear. However the light will come back on if it was tripped by a bad sensor. Replace bad part then reset battery.

This is a Light that tells you when it is time to service your vehicle that is controlled by the Odometer Inputs... You can have this light reset. It is a Friendly reminder to take care of your car,,, Not that anything is wrong, just a reminder.
If it is a CHECK ENGINE LIGHT, then it is telling you there is a issue with your Transmission. I do not believe this is the case.
1. To reset MAINT reminder light after engine oil replacement, turn ignition switch to OFF position with odometer reading showing. Turn ignition switch to ON position while holding down trip meter RESET button. 2. Hold trip meter RESET button down for at least 5 seconds. Odometer should indicate "000000" and MAINT reminder light goes out.
Maintenance required light is a reminder to change the oil. if you have had the oil changed within the last 3000 miles its likley the people that did the oil change didnt reset the light, if im not mistaken, to reset that light turn the car to the key on engine off position and hold the odometer button down until the light blinks and goes away
The "Service engine soon" light pertains to oil change frequencies only, there is no code, it will come on at given milages to remind you to change your oil. To reset there should be a small hole in the face of the instrument panel. Remove the tiny plug and push a paper clip into the hole with a slight force until you feel a click. This should reset the light for another 3000 miles. If it does not have the hole than it must be reset by the dealer. Thank you, Dana
Do you mean the Check-Engine light? If so, have the car scanned for codes and post them here and we can take it further. If it's the oil light that is on, you may have a faulty sender. If it's the Service Oil Soon reminder on the info display, that's a reminder to change your oil (which you should be able to reset with the instrument cluster stalks) - that doesn't monitor the oil, but it's a timed interval reminder based on miles driven. The idea is to reset it each time the oil is changed, so that when it comes back, you know to change the oil.
No sweat. This is a periodic reminder that your car is due for some sort of servicing, usually based on mileage. It may say "service oil" or "inspection" or some other indication along those lines. This is not related to a check-engine light, which tells you that you have something wrong with your car. The inspection reminders are manually resettable with the small stalks on the instrument cluster, and are meant to be reset each time a service interval is reached and that service is completed.
On my A4, the reset is this way: with the ignition off, hold down the stalk on the right, by the odometer, and turn the key on (don't start the engine). The display goes to "------". Pull out on the other stalk to reset it. Turn the key off, and release the right-hand stalk. When you turn the key back on, the indicator should be cleared. It may be different on your A6, but try it that way and see if that clears it.
