Reset Service Light CayenneS 04

Recommended Posts

I only refer this procedure for my own CayenneS 2004.

I found this procedure on the Web & and it got rid of the "Service" light message:


Reset Service Light for ’04 CayenneS

-With key in off position, depress ODO button.

-Without brake pedal depressed, turn ignition on while still pushing the ODO button.

-You should see message: “Service Reset”.

-Push the “enter” button located on the bottom of the wiper stalk several times.

-Turn off the ignition then start the vehicle, “Service" light should be cleared.

Thanks for the tip ManMN -- it cleared the "Service required in x miles" message. I have a 2004 Cayenne S. It was under a CPO until March of 2011 and the dealer kept it up -- replaced drive shaft, coil packs, etc.

Reading this thread I suppose the dealer did not update the primary vehicle software. Not sure if that's a big deal or not. The dealer is great (Sonnen Marin) and have provided excellent service and work even now that I'm past the CPO time.
