oil change - service reminder reset

Recommended Posts

probably a dumb question, but hey, you got to ask them sometimes :P !!

just did an oil change on my 04 cayenne S. ( and I forgot to take some photos for the DIY :oops: .I did not have the service reminder light for the oil change but was at the mileage and time that I wanted to perform the change.

So, the question, do I need to hook up my Durametric to reset the Service light, even though it isn't on? If I do not, when or will it trigger for the next oil change?

thanks, and I will take some pictures on the next oil change. second time doing it and it is very easy. The hardest part is taking the time to get the 2 panels off. And be forewarned, the oil out of the front drain plug comes out extremely quick and with some force!!

I always reset at each change in lieu of getting the indicator. I agree the two panels are the toughest challenge with the oil change on the S (and the V6) :unsure: ...the 'S' my preferred oil change to the V6. The V6 makes a pretty good mess when I change the oil (oil filter is not the best set up and I don't take out that little allen bolt to drain the oil from the filter). I perform oil changes on the Cayenne and Cayenne S at 10K intervals...although the way my wife is going, I may not get to the 10K oil change on her 'S' (I did change the factory oil and filter at 5K). She really enjoys driving our V6 and likes to keep the '08 clean and in the garage most of the time. :jump: Waiting to trade it in for the Panamera...maybe. :P

All the best,
