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.

    LEXUS LS 2004 Maint Reqd (Master warning light) how I can switch off after change the oil engine?


    You can disconnect your battery for 15 minutes or pull the fuse for an ECM or PCM fuse, but the best way is to visit any local repair shop. Most shops will have a universal Check Engine Light Code Reader that can quickly and safely reset check engine light trouble codes. It should take about 30 seconds.

    Ask your local service center if they could reset the check engine light with a Check Engine Light Code Reader.

    I have ust serviced my 2001 volvo s40 and now the


    did the sevice light come on before you serviced it? when you "serviced" it I assume you changed the oil and now need the service light reset.
    I bought the 1998 S70. it got time to change the oil. Being how I am I changed the oil myself. I had to call dealership about resetting the service light.
    they said $29.96.
    I said 29.95?!!! how much if YOU would have changed my oil and reset the light?
    they said $29.95.
    so I learned you need to access the OBDII to reset the light.after service. hope this helps.

    Maintenance required


    Hello, Has the light changed colour or do you mean just come on? if changed then this could mean a service is due. Most cars nowadays have sevice interval limits programmed into the odometer/Speedo so that when certain mileage is reached it warns you.
    If the light has come on unexpectidly then maybe a fault? but judging by your brief description it does look like a service is due. I would get it to a Technician or if you are capable of servicing i.e, oil, filters and general engine overhaul then after the full service try turning the ignition on holding down the buttons (for 15 seconds or so) on the speedo face this may turn out the light.
    Merry Christmas,

    Engine oil warning light


    You need to check your owners manual for the difinition of this light, it may just be the oil change light, or it could be a pressure or oil level light, have you checked the oil level just to be safe?
