Question about 2005 BMW X5

2 Answers

I have a 2003 BMW X5, how do I reset the service indicator?

Is the procedure the same as for the 2005 BMW x5? All of the green bars are used up and the last one is yellow with the words "oil service"
under the bar. I had the oil changed yesterday, now I would like to reset the indicator.

Hi,

You can reset your service indicator, as follows:

  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.
Hope this helps. Please remember to rate this answer. Many Thanks.

    Nice job on the directions. One note: if you don't have manual transmission, just skip the clutch step. The tip on not turning the key too far was very helpful!

How to reset oil life on bmw x5 2005


Your BMW has a CBS (conditions based service) system, this is a new standard system for all BMW's produced in 2005 and on, these CBS system cannot be reset without being hooked up at the dealer, there is no currently offered aftermarket tool for this operation that I know of. I understand the frustration of this problem, I own a 2006 325i, with the same CBS system. Hope this helps, let me know
