Try this procedure and let me know if it does not work.

1. Ignition key in the "Off" or "0" position.

2. Press and hold the odometer button and turn the ignition key to the "Accessory" or "1" position.

3. Keep the odometer button pressed in until you see the following words in the display, "oil service", or "inspection" with "reset" or "re".

4. Press and hold down the odometer button again until "reset" or "re" flash.

5. While the display is flashing, press the odometer button again briefly but do not hold it down this time to reset the service interval indicator. After the display has shown a new service interval then "END SIA" should appear in the display for two seconds.

If the procedure fails the first time then repeat the procedure and it should clear the service interval indicator.

Hi my name is Mike I have a 2002 x5 and in the dash board there was 4 little green lights on on bottom right now I got one red one and one yellow one what does it mean thx lots

Hi Mike. The lights are the service maintenance lights. When an oil service or inspection service is performed the lights should be reset to all green. Over time the lights will go from all green lights and disappear until a yellow light comes on. The yellow means the next service is due. The red means over due.

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
