No offence Mafrooq, you drive such a specialized car and i dont see any reason why would you cut corners by getting service in local garage. In these high end cars AUDI service is highly advisable.

If your instrument cluster has 2 knobs, one on each side (Older A4's, 1998-2004 A6's, TT's up to ~2006):

1. Press the right knob and hold it, turn the ignition on, release the right knob and press the left knob, the display should change to service in ----- miles. Or....

2 A TT Cluster With 2 Knob Setup

2. Press the right knob and hold it. Turn the ignition on and release the right knob and pull the left one. Then, push the right knob again and pull the left knob again. The display where the mileage is shown should change.

3 A Newer A4 Dash With The Wrench Button

If your instrument cluster has a little wrench on a button on the right (2002-2008 A4's):

Press and hold the wrench button. Turn the ignition on, release the wrench button and press the 0,0 button next to it. The center display should change.

4 If you have a older body A8, you may be able to reset without a scan tool. Press the 0,00 button on the right of the cluster, turn the ignition on and release the 0,00 button and press the "M" or "Mode" button on the left and it should reset. If this does not work, or you have a 2004 or newer A8, it will probably require a scan tool.

5 If you have a much older or newer Audi, or certain A8's, you need a scan tool or a special made service light reset tool, available online. You can also purchase after market software and a adapter lead for your laptop and use that. The reset tools will come with instructions. The After market software will go as follows:

On most older vehicles, enter vehicle self diagnosis. Go to #17: Instrument cluster. Go to adaptations, and change the following adaptation channel numbers to the number listed next to it, following the on screen prompts to save and accept.

Channel 5 --> 12

Channel 6 --> 24

Channel 7 --> 36

Channel 8 --> 72

6 If you have a A3, 2009+ A4, 2005+ A6 or 2004+ A8, or a Q7 and are using the after market software:

Go to guided functions, go to service work, go to reset service light, or something of that nature, and follow the on screen prompts.
