Volkswagen Jetta Oil Change Reminder Light MK7

In this blog article, we briefly highlight how to reset the 2019, 2020, and 2021 VW Jetta oil change reminder light. The 2019 onward MK7 VW Jetta has an onboard computer system that reminds the vehicle owner when maintenance for the vehicle should be performed. This system gives an oil change reminder light that appears on the instrument cluster. This is set to appear by the vehicle manufacturer every 10,000 miles or 365 days and should be reset after each oil change.
