How can I reset the "Service Due" light on 2011 Audi Q5?
Hello, I will help you with an Answer to your Question
Unfortunately there is no manual reset procedure on this model
You need an Audi compatible scan tool to perform the reset
I am attaching the information and list of compatible scan tools below...
1. Connect a full function Audi compatible scan tool to the vehicle. Enter address word 17 "Instrument Cluster".2. Enter function 10 "Adaptation".3. Enter channel number "02".4. Input adaptation value "00000".5. Save the stored adaptation value and the maintenance light is reset.6. If the procedure did not take, there could be a couple different reasons for this:A. The software on the factory compatible scan tool cannot actually perform the function. Try using a different factory compatible scan tool and see if it will take.B. On later model vehicle (starting around 2009) the Service Reset procedure is a guided function of the factory scan tool. If using a factory compatible scan tool(s) does not reset the light, a factory scan tool will be needed.
Let me know if you need more help
Am I correct that these scan tools are all in the hundreds or thousands of dollars?
Yes you are correct.
You can ask your oil change shop if they have the appropriate scan tool to reset your service reminder before bringing it in.
An oil change shop should have the tool to reset your reminder.
