Default service insp

My car has recently been saying service insp in where the milage is displayed not in the center display.I would guess i need some sort of service inspection but not sure what....no manual (just have kept forgetting to order one) and I would like to know what it means...only has been displaying it for 2 days so it has not been going on too long
thanks in advanced

bump...still showing but nothing is wrong that i can notice with the car....meaning there aren't any noises or anything that would bring my attention to it just wondering what it might be if anyone has any ideas. It was just in getting a new bumper thanks to someone with a trailer hitch in a parking lot not knowing they were parking into my car so i dont know if just needs to be reset or something....thanks in advanced

Service reminder comes on at various times such as oil change etc. The interval is set by the dealer. On some cars it can be cleared by pressing a sequence of buttons and on others it takes a VAGCom to reset it. When I ask the question people refer me to the manual andtell me which buttons to push - but it dosen't work on my 97 Avant. My manual is quiet about resetting it.

Someday I'll figure out how to reset it with my VAG Com but for now I'm just living with it.

To reset push the right **** on the cluster in and hold. Turn the key to the on position. Dont start the car thou. Push the left cluster **** and it should reset.

You forgot to tell him that he needs to stand on one foot and hold his nose with his left hand while pushing the buttons and turning the key!

Sorry I'll attempt to give all the details next time.

I have found that it is best to stand on your right foot while performing this amazing task. It keeps all the apendages on the left side of your body busy while the right side does the work.

Since today is Super Tuesday I'll give you the political reasons why this is the best approach. The conservative - AKA right wing - people usually end up doing all the work while the liberal - AKA left wingers - get in the way of real progress.So if we keep the left side busy (picking the nose and waving in the air) the right side can reset the service reminder without any problem.But if the left side becomes involved, we will have to form a committee to analyze the situation and then form a government agency to ensurethat everyone has equal access to a service reminder light. Meanwhile the service reminder lights will continue to shinewithout discrimination and people will have forgotten what they really mean.
