Ok. The proposed solution is pretty much on cue, but you'll need to do a couple things first. Make sure the drivers door is closed. Switch ignition to position 2. The maintenance interval should be visible. Push the tripometer to make this message go away. Then press the tripometer twice quickly and hold down. This should once again bring up the maintenance interval. While continuing to hold down Turn ignition off, then on to position 2 again and hold approx 10 secs. That should do it.

Try this, it is the procedure for resetting the ASSIST computer on some Mercs 
1...Turn Key to position No:2 in the ignition / steering lock 2...Press AND Hold the button "000.0" (the trip reset button) TWICE within the space of 1 (one) second and turn the key to position No: 0 in the ignition / steering lock - release button 3...Press AND Hold the button "000.0" (the trip reset button) and turn Key to position No:2 in the ignition / steering lock 
That should do it....The service indicator will reset and an acoustic signal may briefly sound 
Good Luck..Let me know if it works?

Audi - triangle yellow on a dashboard sign with exclamation in the center and around exclamation there is kind of an arrow circle what does it mean, thank you.


ASR - Acceleration Skid Control system.
When ASR warning light blinking the system is activated itself for car acceleration skid control.

For today's typical high-torque engines, traction control (ASR) can increase both comfort and safety, particularly when driving on slippery roads or surfaces offering differing levels of grip. Traction control permits smooth starting and acceleration through the full speed range without wheel-spin or fishtailing.

tdisline_538.jpg


ASR only operates in conjunction with the electronic accelerator (E-gas) and uses components of the anti-lock braking system (ABS). If one wheel suddenly begins to rotate faster than the others (slip), ASR intervenes in the engine management system and reduces power until the wheel stops spinning.
The ASR system represents a further contribution to active safety as it maintains vehicle traction and directional stability throughout the acceleration phase at any speed. In addition, it reduces tyre wear. Activation of the ASR system is indicated by a flashing indicator lamp in the instrument cluster.
The ESP system means the Electronic Stability Program. If the ESP lights on the dashboard permanently the ESP system is faulty. You must access the ESP Electronic Control Unit (ECU) memory for pull out all DTC (Diagnostic Trouble Codes), using diagnostic equipment connected to the data link connector of the car. Then you will be full informed about bad pieces (e.g.: front right wheel abs sensor interrupted, ...). After bad pieces replacement you will be able to erase all faults memored by ESP ECU, in other words reset the ESP system and turn off the warning lamp on dashboard.
