DIY Audi Inspection Due Light Reset in 5 Easy Steps

Inspection Due Light Reset

Resetting the “Inspection Due” light in your Audi depends on the specific model and year you have. There are two main methods:

1. Using the car’s built-in menu:

  • This method is only available on newer Audi models (generally 2017 and later).
  • Here’s a general guide, but the exact steps might differ slightly for your model:
    • Turn on the engine and put the car in park.
    • Press the “Menu” button on the MMI system.
    • Go to “Car”, then “Service and Checks”.
    • Scroll down to “Service Interval Reset”.
    • Select “Inspection” and confirm the reset.

2. Using an OBD-II scanner:

  • This method works on most Audi models, regardless of the year.
  • You’ll need an OBD-II scanner tool (like Carly or OBDeleven) and the corresponding app on your phone.
  • Connect the scanner to the OBD-II port (usually under the steering wheel).
  • Launch the app and connect to the scanner.
  • Navigate to the “Service Reset” or “Maintenance” section.
  • Select “Inspection” and confirm the reset.

Important notes:

  • Do not reset the inspection light if your car actually needs an inspection. This could lead to missed problems and potential damage.
  • Always consult your Audi owner’s manual for the specific instructions on how to reset the inspection light for your model.
  • If you’re not comfortable doing it yourself, it’s best to take your car to an authorized Audi service center.
