Do i have to reset the computer after oil change on my bmw 2006 325i


You don't "have to" reset the status but it does help to keep track of oil life.
Turn the car on. Wait about a minute for the computer to get to normal.
press and hold the travel mile reset button. HOld it untill an ! in a triangle appears. then your maintanance info will pop up. select the item to reset. and tap the side button on the wand atached to the stearing wheel. this button is what you use to browse through your computer. press the button once it will say "reset" press and hold it the second time and it will say reset, hold for 5 seconds or so and it will show a check mark next to
"reset" confirming it has reset.

Oli indicator mileage reset


This is showing that your overdue for a sevice by 8,769. Depending on which service it will either say oil or inspection. With bmw's the order is of service is oil service .. inspection 1 ... oil service .... inspection 2. etc etc.

To reset the light the only tool you need is your finger. On some e46's there are 2 instrument cluster buttons (little rubber poles sticking out). If you press the left one with the ignition off you'll notice your mileage come up on the dash. This is the button you need to reset the service indicator.

With everything off,press and hold the same button and at the same time turn on the ignition to position 2 and wait a few seconds. It will then show the service and overdue mileage.Let go of the button and press and hold again until the 'reset' light flashes. Let go again and then hit the button once. Viola! The same can be done for resetting brake fluid light (clock symbol next to mileage) Instead of pressing and holding for the second time just press the button once to follow into a different menu for and the clock symbol will appear to be reset.

End of essay!

Yellow oil light comes on at start up


The above "Guru has no idea what he is talking about. The yellow oil light means you need a new oil level sensor, if your oil is indeed full. Its located in the oil pan and costs around $100. Oh, and oil changed are around 15,000 miles, not 6000 miles. When the BMW is due for an oil change or inspection, the display says so. The yellow light is low oil. Please avoid giving advice when you don't know what you're talking about.
