1995-2003 Volkswagen Transporter /EuroVan Service Reminder Reset

Volkswagen Transporter /EuroVan

Introduced in 1990, the T4 was the first Volkswagen van to have a front-mounted, water-cooled engine. Prompted by the success of similar moves with their passenger cars, Volkswagen had toyed in the late 1970s with the idea of replacing their air-cooled, rear-engined T2 vans with a front-engined, water-cooled design. The reasons for deciding in 1980 to instead introduce a new rear-engined T3 are unclear. Thus, the introduction of a front-engined layout was delayed until the arrival of the T4. After a run of nearly 14 years, T4 production ceased in 2003, making it second only to the T1 for length of production in its home market.


Service Reminder Reset

NOTE: Some 2000 EuroVan vehicles were mistakenly equipped with instrument clusters having Service Reminder Indicator (SRI) functions (SRI is not specified as standard equipment for the USA and Canadian markets). Vehicles so equipped may indicate a service or maintenance interval not applicable to the USA and Canadian markets.

NOTE: The Service Reminder Indicator can also be reset using an OEM scan tool.

NOTE: On EuroVan, only the actual display shown can be reset.

1. Turn ignition switch to OFF position.
2. Press and hold trip reset button under the speedometer.
3. Turn ignition switch to ON position and release reset button. SERVICE will appear on trip recorder (odometer) display.
NOTE: Pressing trip recorder button again switches the display to INSP SERVICE without resetting the OEL (or OIL) service.
4. Turn adjusting knob, located next to tachometer, to the right (clockwise). The service shown on the trip recorder is reset and SERVICE _ _ _ will appear on display. Turn ignition switch to OFF position.
