Adaptation

Service Reminder

Unlike previous models that used the [SRI Reset] function, the newer protocol UDS/ODX modules do not support conventional Adaptation Channels. The [SRI Reset] function will not work and will result in a message like this:

Oil Change Service Reminder

To Reset the basic Oil Change Service Reminder the procedure will need to be done manually:

[17 - Instruments]
[Adaptation - 10]
Choose "ESI: Resetting ESI" from the drop-down menu.

Choose Reset from the drop-down menu
[Do It!]
It may be necessary to cycle the key before the service warning is cleared.


Distance and Time based Service

Distance and Time based Service Intervals need to be reset when the basic Oil Change Service Reminder does not correct the warning. This requires resetting values in two different channels.

[17 - Instruments]
[Adaptation - 10]
Choose "FIX: Distance covered since last mileage-dependent inspection" from the drop-down menu.

Distance_covered_since_last_mileage-dependent_inspection.png

Enter 0 into the new value
[Do It!]

Next, choose "FIX: Time since last time-dependent inspection" from the drop-down menu.

Time_since_last_time-dependent_inspection.png

Enter 0 into the new value
[Do It!]
It may be necessary to cycle the key before the service warning is cleared.

Special Notes

  • If an Adaptation Error warning indicating that the control module is Uninitialized you must let VCDS write defaults to the WSC, Importer and Equipment numbers before the value can be changed. Click [Yes] followed by [Do It!]
