Hi geonkm, if you look on the instrument clusteryou will see 2 buttons in the lower centre part of the dash, make sure the ignition is swiched off, press and hold the left button and turn the ignition on to the first position keep holding the button down until you see the display change, then lift you finger and press and hold again untill reset appears ( normally after aprox 5 seconds ) it will also flash, once this happens lift your finger again then press and release straight away, this should reset the service indicator. regards mark ps you may want to print this off prior to trying to reset to make it easier to follow, good luck

Emission warnig light on


Check Engine Light
The fault codes are cleared after the problem has been rectified and the engine has been started 5-10 times.
Service Interval Reminder Lights
The on-board computer is used to evaluate mileage, average engine speed and engine and coolant temperatures as well as other computer input factors that determine maintenance intervals. There are 5 green, a yellow and a red LED used to remind the driver of oil changes and other maintenance services.
The green LED'S will be illuminated when the ignition is in the ON position and the engine OFF. There will not be as many green LED'S illuminated when the maintenance time gets closer. A yellow LED that is illuminated when the engine is running, will indicate maintenance is now due. The red LED will be illuminated when the service interval has been exceeded by approximately 1000 miles. This is the computers way of saying this is your last warning.
There is a service interval reset tool manufactured by the Assenmacher Tool Company (tool 62-1-100). This tool is used to reset BMW 6-cylinder and 4-cylinder vehicles with the aid of an additional adapter tool.
  1. Locate the diagnostic connector near the thermostat housing.
  2. Plug the special reset tool into the diagnostic connector and place the ignition switch in the ON position.
  3. Depress the reset button on the tool until all 5 green LED'S are illuminated, showing that the reset has completed.

The red light with the picture of an engine stays on but the Check engine yellow light stays off I took off the battery lead and the light went out until I started up the car a second time and now it...


I'm not very familiar with your vehicle dashboard cluster, but it does sound to me like what you are seeing is a light that is programmed to come on as a reminder for regularly scheduled maintenance intervals that go by mileage, such as the oil.
Other things it might be for is tire rotation, transmission fluid and emissions control components. There then would be a procedure to follow for resetting it so the light will be off and the computer will restarting counting mileage again toward the next reminder. However, if you have recently or within the last few thousand miles have done regular maintenance and it is running normally, then you can ignore the reminder without any problems...other than the annoying light.

Service engine soon light on.


This is a light which indicates that the odometer mileage is approaching a service interval. The service intervals are in the owner's manual.

The concept is you take the vehicle to the shop for routine preventive maintenance (and the mechanic resets the light until the next service interval approaches).
