With the ignition off press and hold the left hand button on the instrument cluster, turn the ignition to 2. (so that the ignition lights are on) still holding the button until the yellow triangle flashes, this is about 8 seconds. when this happens release the button and turn ignition off again. this resets the service light (SRL)

The "service overdue" is a mileage based service reminder. It means you need to change the oil and perfirm whatever other service is recommended for your mileage. If you're up on all your service and the reminder is there it's very likely that whoever did the service didn't reset the reminder. Here are a few instructions on how to reset the reminder yourself: http://forum.bmw5.co.uk/topic/48051-how-to-reset-service-due-indicator/
SERVICE INTERVAL REMINDER If equipped with a service reminder flag, the oil and oil filter service interval reminder flags will activate after every 7500 miles of operation. To reset indicators, insert ignition key into slots below indicator flags at lower right corner of instrument cluster. Push key in until reminder window changes from Red to Green.
When your vehicle is coming up for due maintenance, the light will flash for a few when you start the car. When the time for scheduled maintenance is due, the light will remain on constantly. It's just routine maintenance, but if you haven't done it, that's your reminder. Then, you or your mechanic will have to reset that maintenance reminder light.
This is a oil change reminder. Nothing fancy about, when you get your oil change go into the menu and click reset counter and it will go off. If there was something wrong with your car the check engine light would come on.
Hello, I just tried this out and it works for sure (November 2, 2006), it took me two tries so be patient. I have a 2000 SLK 230 so this should work for most model years. There are two nobs on the instrument panel. The nob on the left resets your odometer, this is the nob we are going to use, lets call it button 1. In addition, there are two positions when you insert the key nto the ignition. The second position lights up all of the instrument lights before turning on the car, this is the position we are going to use, lets call it position 2. 1. Turn key in steering lock to position (2) 2. Within 4 seconds press button (1) twice 3. The present status for distance is displayed. Within 10 seconds turn key in steering lock to position 0 (starting position without taking the key out) 4. Press and hold button (1), while turning key in steering lock to position 2 again. The present status for distance is displayed once more. Continue to hold button (1) 5. Release button (1) when you hear a beep. You have now reset it successfully.
