2011 Jetta Sportwagen TDI Service Reminder Malfunction?

11613 Views 22 Replies 9 Participants Last post by  Wizzman

I'm the proud new owner of a 2011 Jetta Sportwagen TDI. In the Multi Function Display there is a Service Interval display with Miles and Days until service. Both have dashes rather than numbers. When I try to reset them as per the manual on page 20 nothing changes. Shouldn't this have started counting down the day I picked up the car with only 13 miles on it? I now have over 500 miles. I called the dealer and they just repeated what the manual said. Does anyone else have this problem or any suggestions?

Not sure this is helpful, but on my 2007 Audi A4 it just shows --- on both days and kilometers left until ive driven about 500-1000kms since reset. When you reset it because you think something is wrong you have to wait another 500-1000km. I use vcds and this is printed on their homepage (but it doesnt specify how far you have to drive, just "some distance").

My advice is to not try and reset it again and drive atleast 1000 miles and a few weeks before you think something is wrong
