Hi.
I think you will find that this can only be done via the onboard diagnostic system. A part of the service procedure will be to check the system for fault codes, and when this has been done the reminder will be reset. You could either go to a VW dealer, or if you are technically minded you could buy a £15 interface cable, download some free "VAG diagnostic software" and run it on a portable computer.

It's always handy to know what the garage is going to tell you in advance!
Hope this helps. D

How do I reset service now alert in Volks Wagen Golf Engine No. BFQ 164449


1. Keys out of ignition- press and hold in trip odometer reset button "0.0" on right hand side of display
2. Still holding this button down, insert key into ignition and put to the on position without starting the car.
3. Display will read "service now"
4. let go of the "0.0" button and depress the "m" button on the left hand side of the display. this will re-set the service reminder. There is no confirmation on the display other than the words "service now" will disappear.
You can confirm that the service reminder has been reset, or check how many miles/days remain until service at any time by taking key out of the ignition and holding in the trip reset "0.0" button for between 3 and 5 seconds. The MFD will display miles and hours until next service.

On the screen i get service overdue what dose that mean???


The "service overdue" is a mileage based service reminder. It means you need to change the oil and perfirm whatever other service is recommended for your mileage. If you're up on all your service and the reminder is there it's very likely that whoever did the service didn't reset the reminder. Here are a few instructions on how to reset the reminder yourself: http://forum.bmw5.co.uk/topic/48051-how-to-reset-service-due-indicator/
