Just ensuring that it doesnt have a under-bonnet diagnostic connector otherwise this method wont work.

This is how to reset the light.

Switch ignition off and press and hold the button (in between the fuel level and speedo) and at the same time turn the ignition to position 1. After 5 seconds the words OIL SERVICE or INSPECTION are shown together with the message "reset" or "re".

Release the button and press and hold it again for a further 5 seconds until the "resets" or "re" starts to flash. Release the button and press once for the last time. The new service interval mileage should now be displayed. Switch off ignition, job done!

Hope this helps!

Hi my name is Mike I have a 2002 x5 and in the dash board there was 4 little green lights on on bottom right now I got one red one and one yellow one what does it mean thx lots

Hi Mike. The lights are the service maintenance lights. When an oil service or inspection service is performed the lights should be reset to all green. Over time the lights will go from all green lights and disappear until a yellow light comes on. The yellow means the next service is due. The red means over due.

I have a 530D BMW 2005 model, I found that the diesel is mixing with the oil and giving off massive amount of white smoke. The diagnostic report showed glow plug cylinder 5 and 6. We did the service a

I am not to sure what u are asking here but I would say u need 2 glow plugs . I would be checking the dpf filter as that gives off a light colour smoke when trying to regen and if it can't regen that is where the fuel is getting in oil , modern diesels need to have long runs quite oftern driving around town blocks up dpf in the exhaust the car try's to regen using extra fuel to get it up to temp to burn off the soot inside it prob not running long enough to do it. If u got good diagnostic gear u can preform a regen stationary hope this helps

Hi. The oil service light in red indicates that the vehicle is over due for a vehicle service..OIL SERVICE.. If you don't have it done, it could all go wrong. Have the light reset after Service and then it will monitor for your next service.bye for now.

Bmw 530d how to change fuel filter

You do not need to bleed it it just unscrews as it is a spin on type whichh is on the R/H side of the engine near the Wing and easy to see as you will also see the inlet fuel lines to it.
Just unscrew it slowly then carefully lift it out, not dropping any fuel. You do not need to fill the new Filter up with Fuel, just oil the outer large ring rubber gasket and the inner little one before placing the new one on. Just switch on the ignition to prime it for a few seconds and then start the car. It should stall on the 1st go or 2 but then will be ok. Just check for leaks and job done!!
