Exclamation 2014 TDI - Service Reminder Trigger

Hello all.

I'm new to the Touareg, and although I've used the VCDS on my Jetta for quire a few years, the Touareg is a little different.
I was wondering if anyone could direct me to where (or what) value drives the SRI reminder being shown in the MFD on the cluster. I understand that my vehicle is telling me that I need to do an oil change in 15k (kms) from my last service, but the reminder is telling me that I need service in 12.6k or so.... I've already found the "fix - days since last inspection" value and overwrote it, and I've done that with the "distance" as well..... I'm now convinced that this reminder is driven by something else, so I'd like to locate the "warning value" to change it from what appears to be 12.7k or so to something more reasonable like 1k...... I do want the reminder and the Exclamation mark, but not this far in advance!

Hopefully someone else has been annoyed by this constant warning when firing up the vehicle to already know where to find it.

Still trying to figure this out. The damn EXCLAMATION MARK in the cluster is driving me nuts. I have overwritten both the milage and day values and know how to change them at will, but I cannot find the warning setting or trigger for this EXCLAMATION MARK. Has no one else been annoyed by this in the past?

Can you post a picture of the warning symbol?

So I'm still at this.... I have figured out how to alter all of the milage\time values for the Inspection Service, but I still cannot track down what the trigger is for the Exclamation Mark shown on the instrument cluster, or where\what the threshold for it showing is.

I am on pretty good terms with my VW Service writer and shop foreman who told me on the Touareg only they can reset the Inspection Service, they are pretty good about not BS'ing me so I am just passing on what they have said.


They charge me $100 to reset the Inspection Service to a fresh 40K miles which they tell me includes a full scan of the ECU/TCU/CCM and the report forwarded to VOA. Then they can reset the Inspection Service Indicator for another 40K


I have used the SRI Reset feature in my Ross-Tech software for my B8 A4 but it resets both Inspection and Oil Change reminders to a fresh 10K, before I used my Ross-Tech it was at 40K for Inspection and 10K for oil.


I probably have to go into settings when connected to Audi and change a parameter but haven't bothered at this point.

Not sure how all that applies to what I'm asking.
I'm trying to find what the trigger point\threshold is for the reminder notification.
I've already provided visuals showing that I can alter the values on both service and inspection values

In other news, I'm starting to think that once it's "triggered" it does not clear until you actually perform the SRI reset.
I will do some additional testing this weekend most likely as my OCD is really eating away at me with this "!"

So I just cleared my Service Now light today. I posted a separate thread on it.


I think your issues is similar to mine, in that you probably have an actual code set that requires real service.


with VCDS use the AutoScan button to do an aggressive scan and see if any modules have faults. If so take a look at them one by one and save / copy to notepad the errors then reset them. In my case it looks like I have several issues beyond the SRI resest items. One of which is an EGR fault. Another is a bad tire pressure sensor, and a faulty door KESSY sensor. I'm guessing the EGR set the fault code that was not cleared via the SRI reset.


give that a try.
