Question re. '97 A4 1.8

Hi All,
I have just done a service on my 1997 A4 1.8 (20 valve) and now I see that, every time I start the car, the word "OIL" flashes in the odometer portion
of the speedo. I presume this is the on-board-computer which requires resetting? Can anyone tell me how to do this, or point me in the right direction, please?
Many thanks,
James (South Africa)

Unfortunately, on a '97 A4 you cannot reset it on your own. You either have to go to an Audi dealer or find someone with a VAG-COM tool or buy one (www.ross-tech.com).
Cheers,
Pete

That procedure doesn't work on a 1997.

All you need is a service reset tool, eurocarparts in the UK stock them for 49, you will probably find something similar at an Audi specialist near you, it has the OBD-II plug on, just plug it in, switch on you ignition, & press the button, you can reset the service warnings too,

Unfortunately I'm in South Africa - we don't have such luxuries as Eurocarparts! Any idea if there is a part number, or better still, a schematic of the tool, so that I can build one?
Many thanks,
James
