Hi everybody. I had my service (oil change, filters, and so on) a month ago at the official Skoda service in my country. Probably they didn't reset the Service Notification. Today the Service notification came up and I am not in my country anymore to get back to the Service Store. Does anyone can help me how to do it by myself as it is really annoying having it there avery time I turn on the car?

Thank you

If you have the MFD go to (i think) car status or service status enter that and it will give you the option to reset the service, try that

If you can't reset it through the MFD display, then it will be a VAG-COM job. Sorry, but your only option may be a return trip to the dealer. This is from the pdf version of my Owners Manual.

Resetting Service Interval Display
It is only possible to reset the Service Interval Display, if a service message or at
least a pre-warning is shown in the instrument cluster display.
We recommend that this reset is completed by a specialist garage.
The specialist garage:
""º resets the memory of the display after the appropriate inspection;
""º adds an entry to the Service Schedule;
""º affix the sticker with the entry of the following service interval to the side of
the dash panel on the driver's side.
Reset the service interval display by using the reset button (lower right hand side of speedometer)
On vehicles which are equipped with the information display, you can reset the
Service Interval Display in the menu Settings.

CAUTION
We recommend that you do not reset the Service Interval Display yourself as this
can result in the incorrect setting of the Service Interval Display, which can also
cause possible problems with the operation of your vehicle.

I figured out finally. It appears that Yeti has the same board as Golf V.

While the car turned off you have to press the 0.0 button and while pressing you have to turn on the key but not the engine. After that you release the 0.0 button and press the MIN button wich is at the left of the wheel ( the button used to adjust the time)
Than you turn off the key and release the MIN button. And that's it

That's a great handy hint to know. I'm sure a lot of Yeti (...and VW) owners will be happy to know that. Thanks for sharing.

Yes it works, but on my F/L only have to hold in the 0.0 button then turn on car (press KESSY) then the maxidot gives option to select OK (default) to reset or move selection to cancel. No need to use the MIN button. But its reset from today and now shows 15,000 km or 372 days but my service was in last November and would be due in November this year. Had it done not by a skoda dealer who charge about $357 fixed price servicing (ha) but with my euro car specialist at half that price! Is there a way to tell it that its been serviced early?TJ

Not had a service done yet but I would always make sure the service book is stamped,if applicable,and verbally ensure the dealer re-sets the indicator.I know you shouldn't have to tell them their job but better than finding out later and being inconvenienced.
Some manufacturers service sheets show what work is required as a guide to the mechanics and one of the jobs to do on the service is to re-set the service indicator.When the service is completed and a test drive is also done,all the job boxes should be ticked.If they haven't done a job and the box is ticked you have some ammunition as saying you've done a job when you haven't is worse than forgetting!

Also when the dealer resets the service indicator don't be surprised to see - - - for the number of days / miles to the next service it take a few days to appear.

Have just changed oil, oil filter and air filter and gave "her" a look over, have reset the oil change message by pressing o,o button and turning ignition on that immediately brought up the option reset oil change timer but the inspection warning is still active :( any ideas. Doing the work was easier than fighting with the dammed computer lol

To reset the inspection warning light switch on the hazard warnig light first then do the sequence for changing the service light . This worked on mine

hialso the VAG/Scoda dealer can not only reset the service indicator but change the time and mileage left to go as well. I had the diff replaced under warranty as it had developed a loud noise. It took 8 weeks but at least they gave me a new 7.5 Golf to drive. When I got the Yeti back the service showed 15000km and 370 days. I had the dealer adjust this to the correct remaining time and distance. So the service can not only be reset but adjusted as well. TJ

Works for me! (2013 1.2 petrol Yeti). Many thanks.
Bit mystified at the official iine warning that doing this could cause problems with one's car. Like what for example? Getting the oil changed less often? Um ... and that's it. I don't think any of us are planning on resetting it ad infinitum; we do want the car to keep working properly.

The procedures are slightly different between the Pre-Facelift/Classic and the Facelift versions of the car.
Both alternatives are listed in Yetipedia No. 24 :smile:

The DIY procedures reset the counters to zero.
To reset to a partially expired interval, with a specific number of miles left to run, needs something like VCDS or similar.
