Most Volkswagen Jetta Sportwagen models are equipped with a service-reminder system that illuminates a message on the dashboard when service is needed. After the scheduled service has been performed, the service reminder must be reset in order for the computer to keep track of when the next service is due. Volkswagen dealers will reset the reminder if they perform the service. Otherwise, reset it with a few simple steps.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Turn the ignition switch off.

  2. 2

    Press and hold the button labelled "0.0" on the far right side of the instrument panel.

  3. 3

    Turn the ignition switch on. Do not start the engine.

  4. 4

    Release the "0.0" button.

  5. 5

    Press and release the "MIN" clock set button on the left side of the instrument panel. Turn the ignition off.
