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.
Hi, Google found THIS: Turn key to position 2. press the button to show the service due light. release button. turn key off. press and hold the same button to view the service light, within 2 second turn key to position 2. wait up to 10 second and the light will reset to show new service. This may take a couple of trys (make sure the doors are shut).gL, Td
OTE: If the service interval indicator flashes it may be caused by one of the service interval indicator parameters not being programmed. This can only be carried out using suitable diagnostic equipment. Always check for any stored trouble codes as this may affect the resetting of the service interval indicator.

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.
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.
hi there all u need to do is hold on reset button just under mileage clock with the ignition off,then switch on ignition to second turn and you will see mileage clock count down from 10 but keep button held in untill countdown finishes and thats it.
