Re-setting service interval

My service interval reminder flashes -600 at the moment when I first switch on the engine. I'd like to be able to re-set this without having to use a piece of expensive kit. The car is a 2003 BMW 320d.

I just changed the oil and filter on my LX420 twin cam how do I get the blinking light to go out. Its a 2006


  • The Service Monitor meter contains a service minder function that utilizes the 4-digit LCD display.
  • The letters "CHG" will display followed by the letters "OIL" and then followed by the meter accumulated time.
  • CHG"/"OIL"/TIME will alternate on the display for five (5) minutes after the meter reaches 50 hours.
  • While the LCD is displaying the "CHG"/"OIL"/TIME letters, the red LED "oil symbol" will also be flashing for the entire five (5) minutes.
The display will also flash as described above for five (5) minutes every time the tractor has been started during the maintenance time interval. The interval will occur every 50 hours and will be in effect for two (2) hours.( Example: this feature will display from 50-52 hrs., 100-102 hrs., 150-152 hrs etc...)
THE METER DISPLAY WILL RESET TO NORMAL AUTOMATICALLY, after the reminder maintenance time interval of two (2) hours. There is no method of manually re-setting this Service Monitor gauge.

Emission warnig light on


Check Engine Light
The fault codes are cleared after the problem has been rectified and the engine has been started 5-10 times.
Service Interval Reminder Lights
The on-board computer is used to evaluate mileage, average engine speed and engine and coolant temperatures as well as other computer input factors that determine maintenance intervals. There are 5 green, a yellow and a red LED used to remind the driver of oil changes and other maintenance services.
The green LED'S will be illuminated when the ignition is in the ON position and the engine OFF. There will not be as many green LED'S illuminated when the maintenance time gets closer. A yellow LED that is illuminated when the engine is running, will indicate maintenance is now due. The red LED will be illuminated when the service interval has been exceeded by approximately 1000 miles. This is the computers way of saying this is your last warning.
There is a service interval reset tool manufactured by the Assenmacher Tool Company (tool 62-1-100). This tool is used to reset BMW 6-cylinder and 4-cylinder vehicles with the aid of an additional adapter tool.
  1. Locate the diagnostic connector near the thermostat housing.
  2. Plug the special reset tool into the diagnostic connector and place the ignition switch in the ON position.
  3. Depress the reset button on the tool until all 5 green LED'S are illuminated, showing that the reset has completed.

Engine service soon


Hi there,

This is a generic light to remind you that a service is due - usually set for 7,000miles/10,000km intervals.

Your handbook will explain how to reset this, but the most common way to reset is to press & HOLD the Odometer/Trip button for about 15 seconds.

Turn the ignition on. Whats the status of service miles? If service miles are reached zero then the diagnostic light comes up to remind you to bring your car to service station. If needed check my other posts to find out the procedure to set off the service /diagnostic light.
Check that the motor oil and oil filter are changed at regular intervals.
For 206 1.4 sports ecu can be scanned by many garages, costs around 45 quids.

Service engine soon light on my 2002 nissan xterra came on at about 100,000 miles. What could be the cause


If it's the indicator that literally says "service engine soon", and not the check-engine light, then you have no worries. That's programmed to come on at set intervals to remind you that routine service may be due soon (oil change, inspection, tire rotation, etc). It's not an indication of failure. Failures will be shown by the check-engine light. That one is nothing to worry about. Your owner's manual should have a procedure to turn it off.

Service Engine light came on on 2004 Eclipse. Is there a proble or is it maintence interval reminder


It's not a maintence interval reminder.


There are many emission sensors in the car that will make the engine light come ON. Best way to find out what's going on is to have an auto-parts store hook up a engine code reader and tell you what the code means. Most auto-part store will do this for free.
