Question about 2007 Volkswagen EOS Convertible

Who sets the "service now" interval?

Who decides when the "service now" light goes off? I have a 2007 VW Eos and would like to know whether the service light is programmed at intervals, or if the dealer can set it to go off in 5K miles.

    To clarify, I want to know who sets the interval for when the service light comes back ON after being cleared. If I go to the dealer for an oil change, and they clear the service light, does the dealer tell the car to turn the service light back ON in 5K miles so that I come back for another oil change, or is the car preprogrammed by the manufacturer to turn on the service light at certain intervals?

Generally the interval is preprogammed from the dealer computer which is preset. in certain countries the oil change setting may be more regular due to weather condition eg cold countries need thiner oil in the winter so they change the oil at different intervals.
the timeing should correspond with your service manual where your dealer should stamp in the millage covered and which serivce was carried out. check that your sevice manual that came with your car corresponding with your car indicator if they are pulling a fast one i would change dealership.

Yes you should go to the dealer for this,you either have a soft code or a hard code.If the light is always on it is a hard code,get it checked before more problems occur.

Hi, I have a VW EOS 2007, check eng light on, 008583 - Bank 1; System too Lean at Idle P2187 - 004 - - MIL ON, then, 004369 - Oxygen (Lambda) Sensor Regulation: Bank 1


The O2 sensor is most likely the issue. Also, try cleaning the Throttle Body Injector with cauberator cleaner or tbi injector. Build up within the TBI may be causing a gas deficiency which causes it to run lean. If that doesn't help, try running a higher octane fuel, about 93 octane minimum. This will causes ANY debree in the injectors to be cleared.

How do you reset (TPS) Tire Pressure Monitoring system on my 2007 EOS. Had a flat, fixed it and indicator light will not go off.


make sure the key is on then press the tire display set button by the shifter until you hear the chime then the next time you start the car the light should go out (double check to make sure all tire pressures are correct first)

How often should the oil be changed


This depends on the settings for the on board computer and the type of oil used for services.if set when NEW,using fully synthetic oil the service interval will show up on the dash as "service"(approx 20k/2 years) BUT if OEL shows,then use semi synthetic oil and change at 10k/every year.weight of oil should be 10/30 upto 60k then use 10/40 after or when you notice an increase of oil consumption.These engines WILL use oil, as the bores are plasma coated,roughly 1ltr to 500km is acceptable(according to AUDI).Yes i know that AUDI fit 5/30 when new from the factory,BUT only supply 10/30 or 10/40 to the dealers for aftermarket services....(they have a deal with castrol,gemini,worldwide).Same goes for all VW group products,after all it is a VW engine.

I'm told that my 2007 EOS needs a very expensive change of transmission fluid (I have the tiptronic transmission) for "routine maintenance" at 45,000 miles. What is the liklihood that I will have problems...


VW fill the gearboxes "for life" which means it must be changed at "regular intervals as specified in the dervice manual"you could leave it as long as you want,but could cause problems later.(especially if the car is driven HARD.)the (VW)oil for the tiptronic gearbox IS expensive.

The trunk of my 2007 Eos convertible won't close


i havent ever had this problem but i'm familiar with the eos so i can say almost undoubtedly that the you have a bad trunk latch. there is a switch in the trunk latch that tells it if it's closed or open and i'm guessing that the switch is bad. once the switch tells the car that the trunk is closed, it runs the motor that close the trunk fully.

however, i say again that i've never had this problem on an eos so there is a fair amount of room for other issues. volkswagens are rather complicate and use a lot of different switches and such in the convertible top. also, the only way to know for sure is to bring your vehicle to the vw dealer becuase only the vw 5051 scan tool is capable of reading the inputs and outputs of the convertible top control module and this is what is required to properly diagnose the problem. don't waste your time throwing parts at it, the dealer should be able to give you a 100% positive diagnosis with one hours labor (about $90)
