Question about 1988 Volkswagen GTI

1 Answer

CErr Displayed on dash

Hi I own a mk3 1996 gti and when the engine is on instead of the mileage being displayed it displays "CErr" any suggestions what it could be. Another problem I'm having is that every so often when I'm braking the car cuts out on me, starts back up straight away but does anybody have any suggestions? Thanks in advance.

For the mileage display, it's probably just a service reminder. Does your mileage come up when you press the button once? Or try resetting by holding the button in for a few seconds. The cutting out could be time for a tune up, adjustment of your idle speed, new fuel filter, or leaking vacumm hoses. Those are the easiest places to start. Could also be low fuel pressure or emission system problems, but hopefully you won't have to go there. If check engine light isn't on, it probably isn't emissions.

Note: the Service Reminder Indicator displays 3 messages: OEL, IN 01, and IN 02. These display to alert the driver to follow the items listed under the manufacturer's service interval.

To reset the message displays, turn the ignition switch on. Press and hold the odometer reset button "A" located below the speedometer. Turn off the ignition while holding the button. "OEL" will display on the indicator. Press and hold the lower digital clock reset button "B" until five dashes appear in the display. If needed, press the odometer reset button until "IN 01" appears and then press the clock reset button until five dashes appear. If needed, press the odometer reset button until "IN 02" is displayed and then press the clock reset button until five dashes appear.

To exit reset mode, turn the ignition switch on and when "IN 01" appears, turn the ignition switch off.

How to reset service reminder alarm on Toyota aurion 2008?


I am not familiar with that model but most Toyotas reset like this. Tune the key off. Pess and hold the odo/trip reset button while you turn the key to the run position (do not start the engine). The odometer should change to all dashes which will disappear one at a time then change to all zeros and then back to the mileage. Release the button as soon as the mileage is displayed. Sometimes the trip A needs to be displayed before you turn off the key to start. Your owners manual should have this info as well.

This may sound difficult, but it is really simple; the reset takes 30 seconds; here you go:

Get in the car.
Turn the key ON (do not start it)
Observe the odometer. Is it on ODO (total mileage driven?
If not, depress the reset stick by the speedometer from trip a or
trip b until ODO is shown, and the total mileage traveled is displayed.
Turn the key OFF
Press and HOLD the reset stick on the instrument panel (trip a/trip b button), and HOLD it until advised to release it.
Turn the key ON (do NOT start the engine)
Observe the odometer: You will see 5 dashes, 4 dashes, 3 dashes, 2 dashes, and the 1 dash, followed by 5 zeros. The total mileage you started with will be redisplayed.
You may now release the reset stick.
Start the engine, the maint light will be reset.
What procedure does: It adds 5,000 miles to your odometer, and the light will come back on in 5 K miles.

Turn the key on. Observe the odometer. Is "ODO" displayed? If not, push the trip meter button until "ODO" is displayed, with the total mileage travelled shown.
Turn the key off.
Push & HOLD the trip reset button until advised to release it.
Turn the key to "ON" (do not start engine)
Observe the ODO display.
You should see 5 dashes, then 4, then 3, then 2, then one, and finally, five zeros.
The original mileage that you observed should be redisplayed.
Release the trip reset button.
The proceedure is now complete.
