DIY oil service light reset: 2001 Z3 3.0i

How do I reset the "OIL SERVICE" warning light on my 2001 Z3 3.0i Roadster (VIN OLJ 40605)?

Did the oil service myself at approx. 79 000 Km. (New oil, oil filter, air filter and spark plugs.)

Obtained the BMW reset equipment (reset tool No. 62-1-100 and adapter No. 62-1-140) from an indie shop that closed business.

Reset procedure followed (as per instructions):
1.Placed the ignition switch in "On" position. (Engine not operating).
2.Position reset tool No. 62-1-100 and adapter No. 62-1-140 into diagnostic connector.
3.Depressed and held ‘’YELLOW OIL SERVICE BUTTON’’ of reset tool.
4.Green function control lamp illuminated.
5.After approximately 10 seconds, the yellow lamp illuminated for approximately 3 seconds and then turned "Off".
6.Released tool oil service button, then checked instrument panel LEDs.

All green LED's should be "On" and red and yellow LEDs and the OIL SERVICE indicator should be "Off", however, no luck and all remained as prior to service and rest procedure.

Repeated aforementioned twice. Still no luck.

Might the BMW reset equipment be at fault or perhaps incorrect for a Z3?

Need to mention that the following yellow warning lights are also illuminated:
1.Clock symbol (brake fluid renewal due).
2.ABS (anti-lock brake system).
3.ASC (automatic stability control).

Aforementioned were illuminated prior to the oil service, and therefore I believe should not prevent the oil service resetting procedure.

No other instrument panel problems, currently.

Any thoughts, recommendations and/or advice would be highly appreciated. Same with alternative DIY resetting procedures.

Stealer resetting is not an option.

(Sorry for wasting bandwidth, internet connection is a bit iffy, and employer has blocked access to most sites, so cannot do a search ... grrrr)

TIA

SOURCE: I have a 2003 BMW X5, how do I reset the service 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.

Since there are various different warning lights exactly which warning light is appearing after 20 minutes?

If it is the oil service warning light that is appearing then that has to be reset manually when the oil service is done.

How to reset change oil soon light


Oil Life Monitor Resetting (KD, KE)
Description
The engine oil life monitor will indicate when to change the engine oil and the engine oil filter - usually between 5 000 km (3,000 miles) and 12 500 km (7,500 miles) since the last oil change. Under severe conditions, the CHANGE OIL message may be displayed before 5 000 km (3,000 miles). The vehicle must not be driven more than 12 500 km (7,500 miles) or 12 months without an oil change.
The engine oil life monitor will not detect dust in the oil. If the vehicle is driven in a dusty area, be sure to change the oil every 5 000 km (3,000 miles) or sooner if the CHANGE ENGINE OIL message is displayed.
Reset the oil life monitor when the oil has been changed.
Resetting Procedure
Press the INFORMATION SKIP button on the DIC control panel in order to display the OIL LIFE LEFT message.

Just recently had an oil change and service and now my VW Polo 2001 indicated "Service Inspection". What does it mean?


As in, you recieved a lanp on the dashboard that says "service inspection?" If this is the case, it's likely corresponding to a major service interval, such as 15,000 or 30,000 miles. I honestly do not know the reset proceedure for that lamp, but if you have had all major systems checked recently (brakes, tires, belts, hoses, fluid changes/checks) I wouldn't worry too much about it. It's telling you to see your authorized dealer for a glorified oil change. the Stick
