    Thread: Service Interval Reminder

    1. 07-20-2002 07:40 PM #1
      Finaly after research, I was able to setup service reminder on US spec cluster. I think is very useful futer, no idea why is disabled on US cars. Anybody with VAG-COM can do that, by changing coding in your cluster. This only can work on cars with CAN BUS build from 05.00. for example US Golf cluster coding is 07232 so you have to replace 4-th digit (3 with 0 as for cars with fixed service intervals without oil/temp. sender), after this go to:
      1. channel 43 in Instrument Cluster (upper limit for distance to next inspection step size is 1000 km, by default 15000 km=9400 miles)
      2. channel 44 is upper limit for time to next inspection in days, step size is 1 day by default 365
      3. channel 40 is distance traveled since last inspection, step in 100km (ex. 5200 km= 052)
      4. channel 41 is time elapsed since the last inspection, step 1 day

      First the channels 43 and 44 must be adapted, because the values of channels 40 and 41 may not be greater than the upper limits of channels 43 and 44. Adaptation must be done using kilometers (1 mile equates to approx. 1.609 km )
      To reset service interval go to Instrument Cluster Adaptation channel 2 enter 0 and save.
      Service Reminder will display on your cluster (in place of the curent odo display, just fo couple sec.)after certain milleage(usualy 2000 miles or 3200km or time set in channel 43 and 44, as Service in _____ and it will countdown every 100 miles(km), when you turn your ignition ON.

      good info

    3. 07-20-2002 10:40 PM #3
      Will this work the same on European clusters?

    4. 07-20-2002 10:55 PM #4
      Yes this will work on euro cars as well, but in euro cars you have couple options, depends if your car is equipd with oil/temp. sender then you have to follow this:

      0 is for vehicles with fixed service intervals without oil/temp. sender
      1 is for vehicles with flexible service intervals with oil/temp. sender
      2 is for vehicles with fixed service intervals with oil/temp. sender
      3 is for vehicles without service interval display (USA, Canada)

      Thanks. Great info.
      So, for a Canadian Jetta with Euro cluster, I should change from 3 to 0, right? (Assuming all USA, Canada cars do not have oil/temp. sender)
      Thanks again.

      Yes, I did that on my US golf, and it works.

    7. 07-20-2002 11:30 PM #7
      Done adaptation. How to test it to see it's working? All numbers entered had been stored.

    8. 07-20-2002 11:46 PM #8
      try this go to channel 40 enter 119 as 11900 km from last inspection, then when you turn you ignition Service in 3200 should appear in place of the odometer just for couple sec. I just forgot to mention cluster is counting mileage in a backgroung, until 2000 miles or 3200 km(dependts of country code) before due date or distance to the next service, and is decreasing this distance on display every 100 miles or km. Starting from 3200 km to 0 so you have time to prepare.

    9. 07-21-2002 12:07 AM #9
      Thanks. It is working.
      The message "Service in XXXXkm" was shown on my MFA after "Fasten Seabelt" message.
      Thanks again for all your info.

    10. 07-21-2002 12:21 AM #10
      You are welcome, and I hope you gona find this reminder usefull.

      So I would need a VAG-COM tool in order to do it ???

      To initialize service reminder on NA cars you have to use Vag-com or Vag 1552, just one time to setup time and mileage max. limit, after that you can easy reset service reminder without Vag-com.
      To reset with Vag com go to ch. 2 in instrument cluster(17) enter 0 and save. Without Vag follow directions below:
      1. Ignition OFF (dont start your engine), press reset knob for trip odometer, and turn Ignition ON until on display appear

      2. Turn the digital clock knob clockwise until

      3. Turn Ignition OFF

      Thanks for the info. It is handy when I am out on the road and need to reset the reminder. I don't always need to rely on VAG-COM (at home) to reset it.

    19. 08-01-2002 10:23 PM #19
      I still need a VAG tool to enable it before right ??? Only then can I set the service interval without it if I understand ???

      I have a 2000 Jetta GLS and just got my Euro Guage Cluster installed. How do I know if my car is equipped with a temp sensor? And if a setting is wrong, what error message would come up on the MFA? I'm getting a "Oil Sensor Workshop" message on my MFA, could this be remedied by simply changing the digit as per your instructions?

      Thanks in advance for any help.

      Can this be? Something actually useful in the MKIV Forum? This isn't another post with a picture of your car or a question about which wheels to get? You aren't going to ask a silly question w/o searching?!?!? What is becoming of this forum?!?!?

      Yes, it's true. Useful information. Wonder why it's not enabled by VW during the PDI?

      According to the info that I have, the 2002+ clusters are coded differently from the 1995-2001 clusters. Here is the coding:

      http://www.ross-tech.com/vag-com/cars/vwmkIV.html

      Note that the 4th digit of the coding expressed cylinder count in the older clusters, while it expresses the presence or absence of service reminders on the newer clusters. It is completely possible that some clusters may not accept some codings.

      Thanks Andy!

      That answers my question of why my Cluster was not accepting the recoding ... oh well

      This is really awesome... most useful post in the past 3 months!

      I'll have to give this a try next time I get my hands on a VAG.

      this setup is working only with cars build from 06/2000, older models in place of service reminder code have number of cyl., I would gues that it is possible to turn this ON on older clusters (its country code dependent), I dont have access to older clusters but you can try to recode cluster to europe or uk and then go to channel 10 = oil change (default 15000 km) -minus distance from last oil change (if your last oil change was done 2000 miles ago, enter 00012 as adaptation has to be 5 digits ( its counting in km 2000 miles x 1.608= 3200 km, 15000-3200=11800, then go to channel 11=time to next inspection in km like above( except default is 30000 km= 00030, deduct mileage from last inspection for eg. 00027, then go to channel 12 =next oil or inspection in days default 370 days, deduct time from last inspection. I hope that gona help, let me know.

      Just tried it ... 07462 is accepted by the car and the clock changes to the 24hr mode, but channels 10, 11 and 12 are not available (and nor are 40, 41, 42).

      I guess this cannot be done on the earlier 2000 and 1999.5 cars
