Reset Computer Hi, how do I reset the Service Now signal on the dashboard of my VW Sharan 1.8T 2003 model. I also replaced the brake pads and discs with original parts and the computer still tells me to check brakes?

    i have had a service done by local garage but they 'forgot' to reset the service now warning that annoyingly beeps everytime i start my car, i can take it back into garage and they will have another look and probably charge me for this so i would rather do it myself if i can.

I suppose it is the same as for other VAG cars.
Press the trip meter reset button while turning on the ignition and keep it pressed for a couple of seconds.

Take your car back to the garage, and simply tell them they forgot to reset your button...if they try to charge you for that....(and I'm sure they won't) then you'll know they weren't a trustworthy garage in the first place.

2014 Ghibli. If I replace brake pads and discs does brake warning light turn off by itself or need to be reset?


If you're talking about brake pads that have an electrical connector..
the warning light comes on when the pad is so worn that it allows the electrical connector to earth via the disk .. hence the warning light.

Fitting new pads will not cause a warning light on your dashboard. No reset required.

2009 Suzuki swift hatchback automatic 40000km and squealing brake noise and engine light is on why?


The two matters are unrelated. The squeaking brakes are because you need new brake pads, if you have new pads... the mechanic failed to use brake shim grease which stops the squeak. In severe cases, the front disc brakes may be scored... scratched deeply and require replacement. If you replace the front disc pads, replace the rear brake shoes as well! The service engine light is timed by your dealer to remind you when to take your car in for a service check. Many models have a sequence of steps that one can find on-line to reset the service indicator light back to re-zero the count.

I have a VW touran diesel 1.9. Recently there was a brake pad warning light indicated on my dash board, so I took it to my closest gargae to check. They replaced two new brake discs and the brake pads....


nope,it has to go back to a dealer(the computer is too expensive for a diy mech)they will reset it IF GENUINE parts have been used, as sensors are inbuilt into the pads.

I have a light popup on dashboard far right side.


for the light with the 3 bars on each side, its the warning for the brake pads. one of the axles needs new pads. when replacing brake pads, be sure to replace the brake sensor wire too.

do you have a tool to reset the oil indicator? i don't believe it can be reset without one. your BMW dealer can reset it or check www.bavauto.com to see if they carry one.

Service Traction System Light on 2003 Chev Impala


on the rotors you probably noticed two lines one for the brakes and the other is your traction control magnet which picks up a signal to tell the computer to control the braking system when the wheel locks up in hard braking, you either damaged the magnet or it picked up some metal shaving while replacing the brake pads
