Hi, yes unless you've already had it serviced and it's not been reset like on my model.
If this is the case you can reset the service lamp by doing the following: RESETTING SERVICE LAMP ON S40/V40
1, Hold down the odometer button
2, Turn the ignition so all the lights come on
3, Keep holding the odometer down for 30 secs or until the service light starts flashing
4, Release the odometer button

How to reset service airbag light on a 2005 malibu


first of all, I'd recommend finding out why the light is on but if you want to reset the light, disconnect your battery (positive and negative) cables for about 5-10 minutes. This should turn off the light (and any other warning lights too).

"Service" light just started coming on over the weekend. It comes on, stays on for about 5-10 minutes, then goes off. The other lights - check engine (I think), oil, etc. - come on when I turn on the car...


The light is set to light by milage and it is to let you know that the next service is due. This is reset by removing the rubber grommet that is to the left lower corner of the speedometer and depress the reset button.

Removed battery cables to clean them, car won't start. dash says service anti theft system. what can i do?


Ignition keys relearn takes about 30 min to do. 30-Minute Learn Procedure 1. Turn ON the ignition, with the engine OFF. 2. Attempt to start the engine, then release the key to ON; the vehicle will not start. 3. Observe the SECURITY tell tale light. After approximately 10 minutes, the light will turn OFF. 4. Turn OFF the ignition switch, and wait 5 seconds. 5. Repeat steps 1 through 4 - two more times - for a total of 3 cycles of 10 minutes. 3x10 = 30 minutes. The vehicle is now ready to relearn the Passlock Sensor Data Code and/or passwords on the next ignition switch turn from OFF to CRANK Important: Turn the Ignition Switch OFF. The vehicle learns the Passlock Sensor Data Code and/or password on the next ignition switch transition from OFF to CRANK. You must turn the ignition OFF before attempting to start the vehicle. 6. Start the engine. The vehicle has now learned the Passlock Sensor Data Code and/or password. 7. With a scan tool, clear any DTCs if needed. History DTCs will self clear after 100 ignition cycles. Without a scan tool you may have momentary starter interruptions while history clears itself.

Reset the service milage for 330ci 2003


Assuming this is a service level indicator and not Check Engine Light, instructions by bwwatson above are incorrect.

Please note, I don't recommend resetting this unless you perform BMW's service recommendations first.

After Mid-2000: You should not have the 20-pin DLC connector. You only need to hold the left odometer reset button in while turning the key to position 1 (Accessory). Keep holding the button for 5 or so seconds until any of the following shows in the display: OIL SERVICE or INSPECTION with RESET or RE. Release the button and press it again for another 5 or so seconds until RESET or RE flash. While the display flashes, press the button one more time briefly. If done correctly, END SIA should show up for a few seconds. All done.

disconnect the battery for 5 minutes to reset the light, but if the problem that turned it on is not repaired it will come back on again in a few days.
