Service Engine Soon light on 2002 BMW X5

I have a 2002 BMW X5. Took it in for oil change and fluids check etc approx. 2 weeks ago.

Service Engine Soon light just came on but I just had it serviced so I am assuming the two are related. How do I reset the service engine soon so the light on my dash board goes off? Does an oil change effect the Service Engine Soon light?

    The turn signal lights won't flash inside when on and the seat belt light stays on. The turn signal lights work on outside but not inside on dash. Is the body control module going out?

You have to have the light cleared with a diagnostic machine if the problem is still there after that then it probably means that you changed the oil but you need a whole tune-up spark plugs wired ect.

My 2002 gmc sonoma (extended cab sls) will not start i have changed plugs and wires fuel pump and fuel filter i have done oil change and air filter change. the truck will fire if i give it a spray off...


My engine light in my 2002 GMC Sonoma has been on for the past four weeks. Yesterday I had an oil change done on my truck with a local mechanic. He turned the engine light off, but it came on soon after leaving his shop.
This morning I went to start my truck and there was NO power whatsoever. After repeatedly turning the key, I soon saw a slight movement on the battery display, but no lights would come on. It just seemed like it wasn't getting any power. I changed the battery two years ago, so it should be fine.
Eventually, the truck received full power and started, more less out of no where. It wouldn't hold an idle and would just die if i took my foot off the gas.
Hopefully someone has a solution for me.
Thanks.

Engine light is on.


Your vehicle’s computer system has self-testing capability. When the computer senses that there is a problem with some of the components it stores the correspondent trouble code(s) in its memory and lights up the Check Engine or Service Engine Soon lights to tell you that there is a problem and you should have the car diagnosed and repaired. Not fluid related, but could be a small problem that's easy to fix now. Even a loose gas cap can turn the light on. Have a code scan, that's the starting point.
