How do I rest the Service indicator for a 2005 CLK Cabriolet? None of the suggestions listed below worked for me.

First make sure all of the doors, hood, trunk, etc are closed.
Turn the key to position 1
Press system select button(lower left buttons on the steering wheel) that looks like sheets of paper until you see mileage reading or temperature displayed.

Press the brightness button on the lower left instrument cluster 3 times. You should hear a signal and see voltage on the display.

Turn the key to position 2

Press the lower scroll forward/back button(steering left arrows)). You should see "service indicator" on the screen

Press the Brightness button again once. You should see oil type on the screen.

Select the oil grade you used by pressing the + & - buttons on the upper right on the steering wheel.

Press the scroll forward/backward button to confirm. Confirm oil reset, press R(brightness button on lower left on cluster) for 3 seconds should appear on the display.

Service confirmed should appear on the display.

Press the upper forward/backward button & "service indicator" appears on the display.

Press the upper system select button(lower left steering wheel button on left) The display should go back to basic mileage or temperature.

If all else fails. I believe the shortcut I took as a tech was, turn the key to the first position, scroll until you see the temperature or mileage displayed. Turn the key off, push in the brightness button and HOLD it while turning the key to the 2nd position. You should see something like do you want to reset service? press R(brightness) button for 3 seconds and it should reset.

Good luck. The newer cars are worse.

Hi, It can be done in several ways. You can try either:

2) Press/release the R button to show the next service due light. Release button.
3) Turn key to Off.
4) Press and HOLD the same R button to view the service light, THEN, within 2 seconds, turn key to position 2.
5) Wait up to 10 second and the light will reset to show new service .

or 1. Insert the key and switch the ignition to position "I".2. Press the display button on the multifunction steering wheel until the "D Service" notification is displayed.
3. Press and hold the reset button located to the left of the instrument cluster until the "D Service" message resets.

Or have it reset by technician when your computer module is checked.

TO reset service interval-BMW320d

1. With the key out of the ignition... press and hold the left odometer button.

2. Turn the key to position 1... Meaning radio turns on, but instrument cluster warning lights stay off.

3. Keep holding the button for a few seconds (5-10) untill the display changes and says any of these words... OIL SERVICE or INSPECTION with RESET or RE.

4. Release the button but then again press it and hold (about 5-10 seconds) untill RESET or RE flashes.

5. While the display flashes press the button one more time briefly, and if done correctly the words "end SIA" will show up in a few seconds.
