With the key in the ignition (but not turned), press and hold the Odometer Reset Button on the right hand side of the panel. While still holding that button, turn the key (although not far enough to start the engine) and then press and hold the Minute button on the left side of the instrument pane(if pressing doesnt work try turning the knob clockwise until service light has gone off and skip the pressing)l. Release both buttons at the same time.

    Try the reset button method, it takes 10 seconds, and doesn't screw up your camputer, and doesn't even need a wrench...

Try restarting the computer, disconnect the negative or ground cable from the battery. Turn the headlights on to drain the electricity faster. Wait five minutes then connect it back. The car will have to be driven a bit for the computer to set again. If it comes back on there might be a problem but I doubt that.

    Are you nuts? Yes, this may "work", but it is totally the wrong way, and will adversely affect your economy and performance. Just do it the right way, (with the key and zero button) it takes - well, I just did it in less time than it took me to write this response!

    Any time you replace any mechanical or electrical part in any vehicle. The battery should be disconnected. At least the negative or ground. With this said I don't know what LunarEngneer is talking about. Its not usually done for fluid replacement. This is done for safety and this resets the computer to adjust for new input. This is the way to do it if you don't know the manufacturers way. In this case key/odometer method. http://www.ehow.com/how_4963429_disconne...
    There are different methods and safe. An OBD code reader is a popular way. You can visit your local autoparts store and they usually do it free. Or can purchase onehttp://www.harborfreight.com/can-obdii-c... If you don't want the check engine to come back key/odometer or scanner. But still no guaranty it will not turn on again without a repair. Disconnecting the battery will reset the ECU and let you know if you have a problem. As the ECU will run some test and trigger the check engine light if need be. Then the code can be scanned to point you in the right direction. To get the cause of the problem fixed. Still I'm glad you got it sort out.

2006 VW Jetta code U0100


This problem is with ecu / ecm= engine control computer. These are a common and horrible problem on vw's, particularly on tdi's. The signs in a tdi are when car dash lights come on, but no glow plug light,trans gear lights flash, but car still tries to crank. And hopefully ecu has enough power to out out code u0100= no communication with ecu. Unfortunately the ecu will need to be replacd. The ecu is located under the hood, near and under the wipers. Used ecu with same codes run $50-200. New $1000. If get used one make sure has a return policy. codes must match production quarterly year.

How to reset oil light for 2000 jetta vr6


Did you have the oil leak prior to changing the oil? The "change engine oil" indicator is just a service reminder to get the oil changed. You need to reset it. Call your local dealer or check your owner's manual for instructions on doing this. -----------------------------------------------------------------------------

I have a 2008 volkswagen jetta that has 9500 miles on it. this morning there is a yellow light on that resembles an engine? I think it is suppose to be an outline of an engine


Engine trouble or service light. Could just be wanting an oil change, maybe something more. Is it running OK? Check owners manual for details about the light. You are probably still under warranty anyway, check with VW dealer. It may not cost you anything to fix.

2006 jetta tdi oil change


Consult the Owner's Manual, or view the oil specifications on the fill cal or dipstick (usually the fill cap) located under the hood. Depending upon mileage you may not want to vary from manufacture specifications, or risk voiding your vehicle's warranty should any remain. The VW TDI's are typically high maintenance engines. I would strongly recommend staying with the manufacture's oil specifications, and do not overfill the oil in your vehicle.

2000 Jetta TDI: How do I change spark plugs on 2000 VW jetta 2.0...


You're in the TDI (diesel) solutions section so it uses glow plugs.
If it's a petrol engine 2.0L then it would be accessible above and below intake manifold using a swivel spark plug deep socket.

2006 Jetta TDI Tiptronic Maintenance


The tiptronic is not the DSG - two separate transmissions. You don't need to service the tiptronic every 40k like you do the DSG.
VW considers the fluid in a Tiptronic tranny as "lifetime" fluid - it doesn't need to be changed.

2003 VW Jetta TDI Check Engine Light Issue


Try disconnecting the battery (unhook on of the terminals) wait for like 15 mins, hook the terminal once again and start the car. I also own a 2003 Jetta and once my engine light would come on after 2 mins of driving. Disconnecting the battery is like resetting the computer and hopefully the sensor.
