A 1997 BMW 328 (E36) does not have a start/stop button. The start/stop button didn't get added until after the year 2009.

If you mean it doesn't start when you turn the key, and no dash lights come on, you may either have a bad ignition switch or a dead battery.

How to Reset the Service Indicator on a BMW X5


In this Tip I am going to set out the exact procedure you need to carry out in order to reset the service indicator on your BMW X5.

This is very useful information if you are doing your own servicing or having your vehicle serviced by an independant mechanic who may not have the specific service reset procedure for your vehicle. In this case you can reset the service indicator yourself by following these steps:

  1. Get in the car, close the door, buckle the seatbelt.
  2. Push in the clutch pedal and hold it to the floor
  3. Press the left hand dash button (the one that resets your odometer) and hold it down
  4. Put the ignition key in the key slot, and turn it gently (very gently) until the dashboard lights come on - the key will not click - if it clicks you've gone too far and you have to start again. Hold the key in this position. In five seconds or so, the dash will display "SIA" and some other characters. Do not proceed until this happens.
  5. Release the dash button (and only the dashboard button) and then press and hold it again. In another 5 seconds or so the display should begin to flash "RESET?" Do not proceed until this happens.
  6. Release the dash button and push it again to confirm. You won't need to hold it - the display should change immediately and your service indicator will display five green LED's.
Your Done!!

1998 Oldsmobile Aurora no dashboard or tail lights


well it sounds like a computer issue the one that needs replacement is the " body ecu " it controls the lights, heater, seat belt sound and etc. should be under the dash.

Hold warning light,what means?


Press the button on the dashboard "A/T Mode" changeover switch, which switches the driving mode between Normal and Hold. From the Owner's Manual: "Select the "HOLD" mode when starting your vehicle on a road surface slippery from snow or the like, and the vehicle will start smoothly...other than "L" position, the vehicle starts in second gear." BTW, red brake light is probably the emergency brake light switch, which might just need cleaning or adjustment

By the sound of your problem your vehicle has an electronic automatic gear box but correct me if I am wrong..Now this can be caused due to a faulty electronic part but I cannot guarantee this.It may need a diagnostic tool hook up to the car to read the error code.(if it's giving a check engine light )

I need to reset the chage oil light for an alero oldsmobile 2002


Instructions Things You'll Need:
  • Nothing!
  1. Step 1 So you had your oil changed or changed it yourself on you GM vehicle and the little light on the dashboard still says "Change Oil Soon". Your owner's manual should tell you how to reset it, however it's hidden away in one chapter or another.Here are the two easiest ways for most GMs.
  2. Step 2 First you need to turn your car On. This is not starting the car! Turn the key two "clicks" forward. All the dashboard lights should come on, along with the radio and odometer.
  3. Step 3 If your GM has the four buttons on the dashboard with all sorts of information:
    One button should have a road or "i" on it. Pushing this button will show your mileage, tire pressure, operating temperature, and all sorts of other stuff.
    You are looking for "oil life ##%". Once you find this, press and hold the button with the checkmark on it. After 5-10 seconds it should flash "oil life reset". Tada!
  4. Step 4 If your vehicle does not have the buttons mentioned above:
    Turn the car "On" (without starting car!!)
    Press the gas pedal all the way to the floor 3 times within 5 seconds. This is trickier than it sounds. It must be pressed ALL the way to the floor ALL 3 times.
    Then wait 5-10 seconds. The Change Oil Soon light should blink then go out. If not, turn the car off and go through the steps again.

it means its due for service. If u wanna get rid of it without servicing the vehicle then as you start the car simultaneously push the ODOMETER reset button on the dash and it will wipe it. This will however just delay the point your car needs servicing.
