Hi there,

There's one more thing you can try. On a Mk4 VW, you can reset the service indicator by doing the following:

- With the ignition off, press and hold the tripmeter reset button (on the right side of the dash)
- Turn on your ignition, wait for all the warning lights to come on, then let go of the tripmeter button
- Where your trip distance is normally shown, the display will read "OIL".
- To reset the service interval, turn the clock adjust switch (left side) for about 5 seconds. The trip meter display will change to "---" indicating the code has been reset.

You can verify this by turning the car off and on again. Let me know if that worked out for you.

Hi,

The correct procedure for determining the reason for a "Service Now" indicator is to attach the car's computer to an OBD scanner. The scanner will read the error logs/codes and determine the most probable area at fault.

Alternately, you can try to reset your car's computer by removing at least one of the battery terminals for about 10 minutes or so. Incidentally, this could also trigger security/alarm and immobilizer of the vehicle including the lock code for the stereo.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

I wouldn't suggest it. It wouldn't be just an engine swap that you unplug and unbolt and and then reverse...thats not to say it can't be done with a lot of thinking and work and reprogramming that's usually for vw experts...your better off to keep looking at other wreckers for the exact motor

I have a VW Golf 1.6L petrol car and the Engine Management warning light keeps coming on. My garage has so far replace both the lambda sensors and now suggests that it "probably is the cat converters"


go to an accredited service center that has experience on your make of car as the guessing is costing you money
the first thing that a professional shop would do is run the fault codes and then decide which codes were attributed to the problem
removing the fuses may cause more problems because you have no idea what the problem is and will never have any idea until the codes are read
