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?
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.

if you just had the oil and filter changed..the technician did not reset the alert in the cars command module..therefor the check engine light will come on until this alert is removed from the start up sequence in the cars' computer.. get that done and it should be fine..
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.
2. Press and hold odometer button and turn key to 1 or acc. position.
3. Keep button pressed until any of the following words appear in display: "oil service" or "inspection", with "reset" or "re". For vehicles with "high cluster", the fuel amount remaining until next service is displayed.
4. Press and hold button again until "reset" or "re" flash. If there is no "flash", minimum consumption value has not been met.
5. While display is flashing, press button briefly to reset service interval indicator. After display has shown new interval, the following will appear in display for approx. 2 seconds:"END SIA"
IT'S VERY EASY TO RESET THE TRANSMISION'S COMPUTER. HOLD GAS PEDAL DOWN. TURN THE KEY TO THE NUMBER TWO. CONTINUE TO HOLD THE GAS PEDAL DOWN FOR THIRTY SECONDS.RELEASE THE GAS PEDAL AND PRESS THE BRAKE PEDAL FOR TEN SECONDS. NOW YOU CAN TURN THE VEHICLE ON. THAT SHOULD TAKE IT OUT OF SAFE MODE
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.
