By far the most common phone queries we receive are those related to resetting service lights on VW, Audi, Skoda and SEAT. Sometimes the job can be simple but often it’s a real pain, involving block numbers and inserting various figures into fields (if you can find the right ones). As of this week, with the launch of software level 5.40 on the Autel MaxiDAS DS708 scan tool, these problems have gone away. All you have to do on any of the above vehicles to 2012 is just follow the on-screen instructions and the job’s done, with not a block number in sight.
This move is a direct result of the DS708’s European software development being carried out here in the UK. This way, when we hear of a customer need, we can get something done about it – fast!
