  1. This procedure doesn’t work to reset the “Service due!” on an Audi SQ5. It will reset the oil interval but not the “Service due!” light. I believe you would have to purchase the VCDS or OBDEleven software or take it to the stealership. I have seen many similar procedures posted to do this and I can tell you NONE of them work!

      I had the same shoes, I tried several ways car menus, brake…accel…er lights…OBDlls…
      None of them work then brought to the dealer what they want one-hour service charge!
      ($200 – $300 ?? i don’t know)

      (Shhhh…!)
      I bought the “ANCEL VD50” that worked within one minute! (2011 Q5)
      I paid $50 at eBay.
