WwwI have a 1998 BMW m3 and I did an oil change but how do I reset oil light without going to the dealer.

You can buy a code scanner that reads out fault codes and resets the oil change, inspection, and engine fault lights. There are several brands, but the Peake is the most popular among BMW owners.
On a '98, you can reset the oil light by shorting between a couple of the pins on the computer connector. It is advisable to make a jumper that includes a resistor. If you go to a forum like DTM power or Pelican or BimmerForums or UnitedBimmerCommunity and search, you will find the instructions. I would rather not tell you how because I would feel guilty if you made a mistake and flame-broiled some very expensive electronics on your car.

How do I reset my alarm on my 1999 316i bmw ( e36 ) ?

Wow this I recently delt with, there is a weird way to reset what bmw calls the lockdown mode or something like that, you use the key in the passeger door in a certain way. find a shop with michell1 or call the dealer and they should be able to tell you. but this is only if you particular car has entered this manuel lockdown mode. I found this strange as the bmw i was dealing with according to mitchell1 actually manually takes the door lock linkage apart in the lock assembly so that the alarm computer must be reset for the locks to function even manually!!

Horseshoe type yellow warning light on BMW 3series suv..2008 model

As with Most Vehicles this is an Indication of 1 or more tires needing attended to. Generally speaking it is warning of a Low Tire Pressure.
Check (or have Checked) all the Tires for the specified Tire pressure and inflate to "Recommended" PSI as found on the Tires, (raised type lettering on Tire) closest to Rim/ Wheel.

If it is Low Pressure, with Economics as they are, have tires inflated to Maximum load can increase gas mileage

How do I get a reset code for my 1987 BMW 325i series w/o having to pay for assistance?


Just guessing; don't have a BMW to test it on.
Resetting Volvo 240's was lots easier - press the button behind the dash the owner's manual doesn't even mention.
