VW Golf (5K) Instrument Cluster
Coding information is available while connected to the vehicle with VCDS using the [Long Coding Helper].
Unlike previous models that used the [SRI Reset] function, the newer protocol UDS/ODX modules do not support conventional Adaptation Channels. The [SRI Reset] will not work and will result in a message like this:
To Reset the 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
It may be necessary to cycle the key before the service warning is cleared.
- 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!]
- Most North American vehicles with the UDS/ODX protocol instrument clusters have a "Reset" that can be accessed via the MFA, without a scan tool. Pictures here:
