How to reset service mileage meter

There are a couple of ways to do this on an OBD1 model e36, but the way I would suggest for a novice is to go to the Peake website and buy the proper tool for the job. If you buy the scanner, you will also be able to reset the inspection and Check Engine lights, and read out the trouble codes when the Check Engine light illuminates. It will come with a book so you can interpret the trouble codes.
There are other brands of scanner that work just fine, but Peake is the most popular among BMW owners.

"Time for service" light comes on after the car

Your mechanic may have forgotten to reset the light. Also if the time for service light is your check engine light a fault code may be stored in the vehicles on board computer. Have the codes pulled to determine if a fault code is present or not. If there are non you can have the light reset, however if there is a fault code and you just reset it the light will keep coming on until the problem is corrected.

The check engine light comes on all the time now and the Audi service dept constantly tells me it could be a 1000 reason why it continues to come on and each time I take it to the service dept, it cost me...

There really are 1000 reasons the check engine light is coming on. If you keep resetting it and it comes back on, and it is not affecting the engines performance it is more than likely a faulty sensor. But thats just 1 of the many reasons. They want to keep you coming back so unless you tell them to fix it. They are going to be very vague. Get the obdII software and reader is the best thing I can tell you. Then you can read the code that is tripping the CEL. Hope it helps!

the light can be reset by disconnecting the battery for a few minutes, but the light is telling you there is a problem in the electronic controls of the engine, until that problem is fixed the light will continue to come on. Here is how u test the system for the trouble codes that are stored whenever the check engine light comes on. Go to the link for instructions on how to retrieve codes.
