The Service Reminder Indicator (SRI) is fitted to all 2000 EuroVans It stores two sets of information: Oil Change and Inspection Service. Here is the method to manually reset the SRI after performing a service:
Switch ignition OFF.
Press and hold down the trip odometer reset button (at the lower right of the instrument cluster).
Switch ignition ON and release the trip odometer reset button. It is not necessary to start the engine; merely turn the key until the ignition is ON.
The trip mileage area now displays “Service OIL”.
If trip odometer reset button is now pressed again, the display turns to “Service INSP”. Pressing the button again will cycle the display back to “Service OIL”.
When the reminder that needs to be reset (either OIL or INSP) is displayed, turn button for setting the clock (at lower left of instrument cluster) to the right. The display changes to “Service —-“. That reminder is now reset.
The second reminder is unaffected unless it is displayed by pressing trip odometer reset button and the clock button is turned right again.
Switch ignition OFF and back ON to resume normal display.
There’s no great ”trade secret” as to how to reset the service indicator lamp on most VW’s, simply refer to pages in the Owner’s Handbook!
For reference of those interested in such matters, but who might not have access to an owner’s manual, this is the procedure to follow:
Note: the Service Reminder Indicator displays 3 messages: OEL, IN 01, and IN 02. These display to alert the driver to follow the items listed under the manufacturer’s service interval.
To reset the message displays, turn the ignition switch on. Press and hold the odometer reset button “A” located below the speedometer. Turn off the ignition while holding the button. “OEL” will display on the indicator. Press and hold the lower digital clock reset button “B” until five dashes appear in the display. If needed, press the odometer reset button until “IN 01” appears and then press the clock reset button until five dashes appear. If needed, press the odometer reset button until “IN 02” is displayed and then press the clock reset button until five dashes appear.
To exit reset mode, turn the ignition switch on and when “IN 01” appears, turn the ignition switch off.
