Default Oil Light reset

Great write up and comments to all. I'm about to change the oil on my 12 TT...However, I was wondering...If I change the oil prior to the "service" light illumination, does the computer know that the oil has been changed, thus eliminating the illumination of the "service oil" light?

Thanks again.

No. It has no knowledge that the oil has been changed. You need a tool to reset the oil change warning, or you have to visit the dealer and have them reset it.

Tools include: Durametic, iCarScan, and a number of others that are discussed at length in threads in the normal Cayenne discussion forum.
