When i Turn my BMW 318i on i will see inspection on the dashboard can anyone explain to me what it means and what i should do.


Newer or luxury vehicles have reminder sensors for routine check ups on vehicles after so many miles like oil changes and air filters you will need to find the sequence to reset the light. Also I am not sure about the air bag. Might be a loose,wire connected to the air bag

Oil service an inspection lights are on


Not sure how long you have owned a BMW. These cars have a service light as you see. When the light comes on it basically telling you that the oil needs changing and serviced. When you do have the oil changed, make sure the light is reset by the business. The light has to be reset or it will stay on. I'm thinking the light is on a 3000 miles service.

How to turn the sevice warning light off after oil change ?


BMW Model E39 built from 1996~2000 will have a port like the one shown below. A Reset tool like a Peake R5 or R5-FCX is needed to reset the oil service or inspection service lights after required service.

1) If you have a reset tool then turn your car key to Position II but do not start the car.
2) Turn the cap counter clock wise on the Data Link Connector and insert the Reset Tool
3) Follow the instructions of your reset tool, different models may have different functions however they all create a short in PIN 7 to PIN 19 for a given amount of time.

  • OIL Service Reset requires pin 7 and 19 to be closed for 3+ seconds
  • INSPECTION Service Reset requires pin 7 and 19 to be closed for 10+ seconds


  • 4) Once done, remove the reset tool and close the cap .
    5) Your dash should light up with green lights at this point.
    If the light did NOT reset after the above steps then you might be resetting Oil Service however an Inspection Service is needed.

    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.
