How do you reset the Service light on 2006 BMW 325
Hi , to reset the service light you will need to insert the key and turn the ignition lights on but do not start the engine. you will see a push button on the lower left side of the instrument panel press and hold this until you have a triangle appear which then turns to the brake warning symbol , release the push button then press and hold the bc button in the indicator arm until reset appears , release and again press and hold the bc button until you have a moving clock symbol appear , release the bc button and wait for the display to change , once this has reset turn off the ignition and the service symbol should have reset .
you may want to print these instructions before resetting , regards Mark.

01 bmw 740i died coming to stop sign startedback up but wouldent go anywhere had no power barley moving tested fuel pump it was fine changed relay what could it be
Hello Joe Hord and thank you for asking...
FUEL pump in the clear... That is IMPORTANT.
A bunch of things... but the smart money would be to beg,
borrow or BUY an ODB (diagnostic) reader...
SAVEs big money on TOTALLY POINTLESS guessing and TAMPERING that is likely to leave you with more TROUBLES than you started with (ending in pointless replacements of VERY
expensive OXYGEN-SENSORS... BECAUSE the "clown"
at the "auto-zone" says "hey Oxygen Sensors"...
Typically Oxygen Sensors (like THERMOMETERS) merely
report the NEWs...
Buying a new THERMOMETER is not going to get rid of a
COLD... (or the plague).
The real NEWS is likely a MUFFLER BAFFLE has come
loose or the CATALYTIC CONVERTER has given it's all...
and is now blocking the EXHAUST.
From what you describe... my memory of being round the
bend... That's my better guess:
I like guessing games as much as the next guy... but
INTRODUCING more troubles is more likely if you
take the EASTER-EGG approach.
Check to see if your local EXHAUST shop will do a
"FREE" diagnostic read...
Cautionary note: If you live (here) in California you want to play
Very CLOSE ATTENTION to those SMOG regulations...
Gubnor Nuisance may be busy right now... But sooner or later
(end of the world or not) you are going to get that SMOG test...
It would make me sad to think you have to do the SAME JOB
all over again .
Good luck: better skill.

How to replace the serpentine belt on my 09 750li twin turbo BMW
Which engine is in it? Comment below and I'll try and find a diagram for it. First take lots of photos and notes before you start as reference for when you get stuck. (You will get stuck)! you might need to remove plastic guards, covers and some air intake pipes to gain access to some of the pulley wheels when putting the new one on. You will be working by feel only for some of this job so trace the route of the belt with your hand all the way around so you know where its supposed to go.
One of the pulleys the smooth side of the belt runs over is on a spring loaded tensioner arm. This needs to be swung against the spring to slacken the belt. Some engines have a slot or pair of holes you can line up and insert a pin to lock it in the 'slack' position. Again follow the belt around its whole length as you take it off to remind your self exactly where it goes. Fit the new one, this may take several attempts, and carefully release the tensioner.
A lot of companies recommend you change the tensioner as well. I agree as I've had one fail on me when my belt snapped. the tensioners just bolt into place and need to be fitted before you refit the new belt.
Once fitted, again trace it with your hand to check it is squarely set on all the pulley wheels, then start the car.
Then, KEEPING YOUR HANDS WELL CLEAR, look and check the belt is moving smoothly on all the pulleys you can see and not sliding from side to side. Check the dash board for any warning lights or messages and turn the engine off. Refit any pipes, guards and covers, recheck for any warning lights and messages on the dashboard and that should be job done!
