You need a hand scaner/reset to reset the lites on this model. You can buy them on ebay or goto your local part store. Removing the lite is also handy

My 2001 cadillac deville the service engine soon light comes on and the computer from the parts store said it was related to the air pump or hoses any ideas?


hi, well i would have to disagree with the computer, all this is actually telling you is that you have a service due, what this means is, when you take it to a garage and get a main service like, plugs, leads oil, brake checks and adjustments, transmission fluid change, filters changed, ect ect, the service interval is reset to a certain mileage , when it is coming up for the next service, it will remind you of this again when you get close to the end of the mileage required, ie, if you have a service every 15,000 miles, it will be reset to 15,000 miles, but when you get to, lets say, 2,000 miles left to go before next service, this will then come on and inform you that you have only 2,000 miles left before your next service, i hope i have explained that correctly for you..

How do you reset the service engine light on a 2006 525i


In 2006 BMW developed what they Condition Based Service (CBS), this means even when you change the oil and filter, the only way to reset the service indicator is to take it to the dealer, to be hooked up to thier computer. I have the same problem, I am waiting for some aftermaket code breaker to be developed to fix this problem. Hope this helps, let me know.

Just had oil change done on my 2000 alero now my service engine soon light is on.I want to know what this means


It simply means that the service indicator was not reset when the oil was changed. If the oil was changed professionally, then resetting the service indicator is usually part of the job.

It's not just a reminder to change the oil, it's also there to remind you to check/adjust/lubricate/replace other items such as the air filter, oil filter, spark plugs, fuel filter, dampers (UK=shock absorbers) etc.

The service indicator is simply a dumb counter keyed to mileage and time elapsed and cannot sense when you have completed a service. Resetting the indicator requires a special tool so you'll need to take your car to a suitably equipped garage.

How it reset service engine light


Is it the "oil change req." light? Your owners manual will have the process for reseting the oil change light.
If it is "service engine soon" light, the vehicle will need to be scanned with a professional scanner.

Maintenance light turn orange. I bought the car 2 months ago. It was green when I buy it. After travelling for about 900 km it turns to orange. I don't have the manual. I dont know what it means. What...


hi there
When the car is near 12,000km since the last service,the indicator will turn yellow,if it exeeds 12,000km it will turn red.
To clear it switch the ignition on.
Reset service indicator by inserting key or another similar object of the same size into the slot below the indicator.
The service lamp will cancel the indicator for the next 12,000km.
I hope this helps you.
