You are going to need a vag tool. 1997s require this tool to reset the OIL, INT1, and INT2.

How do i reset service due on audi a1 1.6di 2011?

Maintenance Interval light is set though the computer. Either the servicing shop can do it for you or you can invest in a VAG-COMadaptor/software that plugs into your OBD connector. Check ebay/amazon for VAG-COM. Cheap ones will let you reset a check engine light or reset your service interval but not much more.

How can I reset service light on 2008 Volvo V50

OTE: If the service interval indicator flashes it may be caused by one of the service interval indicator parameters not being programmed. This can only be carried out using suitable diagnostic equipment. Always check for any stored trouble codes as this may affect the resetting of the service interval indicator.
Ensure all doors are closed. Turn ignition key to position I. Press and hold reset button [A] 104667 07, 116126 07 Immediately turn ignition key to position II (within 2 seconds). Keep button [A] depressed until service message has been reset. A yellow warning light [B] will illuminate when it is time to release button [A]. Release reset button [A] within 4 seconds. There will be an audible signal when reset is complete. If reset button is not released within 4 seconds, the service interval indicator will not be reset.
