When i Turn my BMW 318i on i will see inspection on the dashboard can anyone explain to me what it means and what i should do.


Newer or luxury vehicles have reminder sensors for routine check ups on vehicles after so many miles like oil changes and air filters you will need to find the sequence to reset the light. Also I am not sure about the air bag. Might be a loose,wire connected to the air bag

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.

    What type of oil do I use in my 2003 325I BMW and how do I reset the service engine light?


    Most probably it is synthetic oil ad unless you own the tool to open the computer you will need a BMW tech to reset the light or at least a certified BMW mechanic.

    I would like to reset inspection reminder on the onboard computer


    that's how they get you. you need a scanner to reset it. try looking for a small shop possibly one that deals with european cars. they might charge you less to do it. they should reset it for you if you let bmw change the oil for you.

    Yellow oil light comes on at start up


    The above "Guru has no idea what he is talking about. The yellow oil light means you need a new oil level sensor, if your oil is indeed full. Its located in the oil pan and costs around $100. Oh, and oil changed are around 15,000 miles, not 6000 miles. When the BMW is due for an oil change or inspection, the display says so. The yellow light is low oil. Please avoid giving advice when you don't know what you're talking about.

    Oil service light


    BMW SERVICE RESET Take a small wire, paperclip, or elect wire and bend like a horseshoe. No light or equipment necessary Open the diagnostic data port, the one were the little pacman centre is located. Turn the ignition to position 2, don?t start. Connect pin 7 always first and then pin 19. Hold for 4 seconds. Remove wire and settings will be reset. Warning if you hold the wire longer than 10 seconds you may reset inspection intervals 1 and 2. I?ve done this twice and it definitely work on my E36
