Look in your owners manual. Go to the area where it explains each part of your dashboard and what all the idiot lights represent. Whereever your maintenance reminder is should have a explanation to what it means and a page to get more info. Somewhere in those pages there will be a list of things to do to reset the maintenance reminder if someone other then the dealer do the maintenance. Should be pretty easy to do.

Good luck

2006 chevy trail inline 6. Change engine oil light came on all of sudden. I changed the oil just 2000 miles ago. What does it mean? How do I reset ?


{: ) It could be that it was not reset properly and successfully when you last changed your oil. A scan tool can reset it better. Also, double check for oil level and leaks.

How to reset inspection light on 2000 bmw 323


You need a tool that plugs in to the computer connector under the dash above your left foot. The most popular brand is Peake, but there are several brands that will work. This tool will reset the oil change light, the inspection light, and the check engine light, and will read out engine control system error codes.

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.

    Check engine light came on after oil change on hummer h3 2007. Is there a way to reset the light.


    SOUNDS MORE LIKE SOMEONE KNOCKED OFF A WIRE CONNECTOR DOWN BY THE OIL FILTER AREA, RATHER THEN A RESET OF THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT...SCAN OR HAVE THE SYSTEM SCANNED TO SEE WHAT CODE IS SET IN THE COMPUTER THIS MAY HELP YOU TO FIND THE CULPRIT IN 1/2 THE TIME, AFTER ITS DONE USE THE SCAN TOOL TO CLEAR THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT, MAKE A NOTE OF WHAT CODE IT WAS AND DRIVE FOR A FEW DAYS TO BE SURE IT DOESN'T COME BACK AGAIN.
    HAPPY MOTORING!!

    Oil Change Reset
    A press of the OIL CHANGE RESET switch will allow you to
    reset the oil life feature to 100% (or your Personalized Oil Reset
    Percentage). After you have the oil changed, you must execute
    the following procedure. Press the OIL CHANGE RESET switch
    and hold for five seconds as the M/C counts down for five
    seconds. After a successful reset the Message Center will display
    “OIL LIFE RESET TO 100%.” If you have established a
    Personalized Oil Reset Percentage, the display will show that
    percentage instead of 100%. To ensure accurate oil life
    indicators, perform this reset procedure only after an oil change.
    Your Personalized Oil Reset Percentage allows you to establish a
    smaller oil change interval than the manufacturer’s
    recommended interval. To establish your Personalized Oil Reset
    Percentage perform the following procedure:
    1. Press and hold the OIL CHANGE RESET switch and press
    the RESET switch while the display is still counting down
    the 5 seconds to reset. The display will change to “START
    OIL LIFE AT XXX%.”
    2. Press the OIL CHANGE RESET switch until the displayed
    percentage is the Personalized Oil Reset Percentage that you
    desire. Your choices are 100%, 90%, 80%, 70%, 60%, 50%,
    40% and 30%.
