It should not be news that care and maintenance are part of maintaining the value and safety of the vehicle. Various services are to be implemented as a preventive measure in order to be able to drive the car reliably and safely in the long term. The different manufacturers have integrated the so-called service interval (maintenance indicator), which varies depending on the brand, model, technology and year of manufacture. If the car is getting a bit old, you might think about not always taking it to an expensive dealer, but various jobs like you oil change perform yourself. It goes without saying that any guarantees / warranties expire in this case and the correct stamp is not available in the service booklet.

Flexible or permanent service?

At some point, however, every “bread and butter vehicle” comes to an age when these things are less important than the option of saving money. Although it can make sense to have servicing and inspections carried out by the authorized dealer “after the warranty period has expired”, everyone has to know for themselves in the end resets the service interval. In a workshop or just yourself? In modern vehicles with flexible service intervals, a distinction must be made between service and oil change intervals. But that should be clear to everyone who works on their own car! By the way, only in the rarest cases do you have to go with one suitable diagnostic device reset the maintenance interval display system.

Diagnostic testers may be necessary!

It often works directly via a function in the on-board menu or manual reset can be carried out using certain key combinations, for example on the indicator or wiper lever. Keep in mind, however, that manual resetting in vehicles with flexible service intervals is often automatically switched to displaying fixed intervals. If you still want to have flexible intervals, you should carry out the service reset with a diagnostic tester or have it carried out in a specialist workshop against a 10 in the coffee machine. The prerequisite for a reset is of course always that work on spark plugs, air filters, transmission oil, brake fluid, fuel filter, oil etc. has been carried out.

  1. Of course, I already knew that maintaining and maintaining the value of the vehicle includes care and maintenance. If I don't show up in the garage too often, I always have to expect a sermon. This is despite the fact that I can do some work myself, such as changing the oil.

  2. Thank you for contributing to auto service deferral. My brother is looking for an inspection for VW cars because his electrics are crazy. Good to know that you can also carry out the service reset yourself in an emergency.
