    Blinking red wrench light

    When I start my 2009 Tiguan, lately a red wrench indicator light blinks at start-up. What is it for?

    It means that your vehicle is due to have service (oil change). How many miles are on your Tiguan and when was the last time you had it in for service?

    Re: Blinking red wrench light

    You have free maintenance at 10k, 20k, and 30k miles. Or, if you do not reach these mileages within a 360 day timespan, the wrench will blink once a year regardless of mileage.

    Also, welcome to VWOC!

    There are 19,500 mi, on the vehicle. I bought it used (18,500 mi) so I have no manual for reference. I have not had it serviced since the purchase. Appreciate the info.

    Thanks!!
