You can see whether an oil change or service inspection is due in the Car menu on the sound system or MMI display. There are two display levels:

  • Service reminder: When the next service date is approaching, Service in----- km--- days ⇒ fig. 15 will be shown in the instrument cluster display each time you switch on the ignition. The number of days and kilometres act independently of each other. Service due! will appear in the display when the number of days reaches zero, even if you have not yet driven the estimated number of kilometres remaining. Similarly, Service due! will appear in the display when the number of kilometres reaches zero, even if the estimated period has not yet expired. The remaining distance and time are updated and displayed briefly each time you switch on the ignition.
  • Service due: When a service is due, Service due! will appear in the display as soon as you switch on the ignition. The display reverts back to the standard display after a short time. In addition, a tone will sound.

Displaying distance and time to next service

In the Car menu, you can look up the distance and time remaining until the next oil change and next service inspection. To do this, select function selector button CAR > Service interval display, fig. 16.

The display may not be complete on new vehicles within the first 500 km.

Resetting the service interval display

Your Audi dealer resets the display after each service. You can only reset the oil change display yourself. To do this, select function selector button > Service interval display > Reset oil change interval. The next oil change will be indicated as being due 15,000 km or one year (fixed service interval) after the oil change interval is reset.

The system cannot calculate the figures for the service indicator if the battery Caution

The system cannot calculate the figures for the service indicator if the battery is disconnected from the vehicle, so no service reminder can be displayed during this time. Please remember that keeping to the correct service intervals is most important for the service life and residual value of the vehicle (and especially for the life of the engine). The period between two services must never be longer than the time specified in the Service Schedule, even if you only cover a low mileage during this time.

Note

  • Do not reset the display between oil changes - otherwise the display will be incorrect.
  • The information in the service interval display remains intact if the battery is disconnected.
  • The distance to the next service cannot be called up if the system has detected a Priority 1 fault (red symbol).
  • If the service was not performed by a qualified workshop, the oil change interval display can only be set to fixed service intervals of 15,000 km. If you wish to continue with the LongLife service, you will need to have the oil change interval display reset by a qualified workshop.
