hi engine service light is different from error codes, this is a system generated thing so its just reminding you that you have a service either due, or one is coming up, its on a countdown via the mileage counter, when it gets close it just reminds you to get it done, this will have to be reset in a different way here is how
With the car started (ignition on), set the LCD odometer readout to total mileage(not trip A or B).
Turn the car off (ignition key to the OFF position).
Push in AND HOLD the button/knob that switches the odometer
Turn key to ON position without starting the car. You will notice the maintenance light blink and go out.
Release the odometer button/knob.
Turn key to OFF position.
That's it! The "MAINT REQD" light has been reset to warn you to change your oil in another 5,000 or 7,500 miles or so hope this helps, please rate and comment thanks
sounds like the service reminder was not reset during the service.
switch off the ignition. press and hold the button on the dash. switch on the ignition. release the button. now twist the button clockwise . the spanner disappears. switch off ignition.
That's a reminder light that is based on miles traveled (the idea is that at certain mileage intervals the car is due for some sort of service, whether it's a tire rotation, oil change, brake inspection, or general inspection). It is not an indicator of a problem or failure. I don't know the method to turn it off on your car, but a quick google or ask.com search will probably reveal it.
It's a warning light designed to remind you that, based on the miles traveled since the last time the light came on, it may be time for maintenance. It's only a reminder, NOT an indication of a problem. And you may not be due for work - it depends on when the light was turned off the last time. Don't sweat that one:)
Ignore that first reply. The "service" indicator on the dashboard is programmed to come on every certain number of miles (usually 5-10k, in line with typical service intervals). It's a reminder to you that you probably have some sort of inspection or periodic maintenance due. It is NOT an indicator that there is a problem with the oil or the rear brakes. If there's a failure of some sort, in a system that is monitored by the ECU, the check-engine light will illuminate. The "service" warning is simply a reminder that you should check the owner's manual to see what servicing is due at your mileage.
1) Turn key to position 2. 2) Press/release the R button to show the next service due light. Release button. 3) Turn key to Off. 4) Press and HOLD the same R button to view the service light, THEN, within 2 seconds, turn key to position 2. 5) Wait up to 10 second and the light will reset to show new service .

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.
