Guys I looked everywhere (maybee not hard enough ) for a DIY service reset for E90 but couldn`t find one. So decided to try the E60 DIY which wasn`t too far off. I realise most cars are still...

Also the service date is 5 years from now or 30K miles (car on the lift icon). How can I change the oil interval to lets say 8 months from now and 8-9K miles for the oil change and 15K miles or 1 year from now for the service interval? I tried changing date in the car and then reset to trick the computer, and no luck. Here is what I used to the tee:



Step 1
Insert key into slot
Step 2
Press start/stop button without depressing clutch/brake and wait for the service reminder to dissapear.
Step 3
Immediately after service reminder goes out, press and hold the odometer reset. After 3 secs a warning triangle will appear, keep the odo. button pressed and after another 2-3 secs the Oil can will appear. I f you hold it too long (10 secs in total) you will overshoot the runway and some German writing will appear giving the software level/ can bus etc. of the car. Go back to the beginning and start again.
Step 4
You are now in the service menu, use the toggle switch on indicator stalk to scroll up/down through the various service items.
Step 5
When you have the item you want to reset showing, press the BC button on end of indicator stalk. Reset should now appear in the display. Press in and hold the BC button for 2-3 secs and a clock will start whirling around and hey presto, its done
Step 6
You can now either scroll up/down to select another item (as in step 4) or you can press the start/stop button to exit.
I agree. I just changed the oil this weekend @ 52,000+ miles and when I did the service reset on the oil, the interval said 20,000 mls. Too far out man.

You may use old sensor if it is completly untouched. If surface of sensor is used car detect this, but do not show any warning. If you reset interval you must use new sensor, because car detect that sensor is old
Logically for this exists simple & economic solution.
If the sensor gives resistance about 0.5 kOhm, it means that the critical level was not reached and sensor may be reused, speculative with safe. You may simply connect the 1st phase wiring using solder.

At least I thing so. I have to change my brake pads soon so I will report if I was successful.

Same here after yesterday's oil change. To help out the future owner I am going to start penning things into the manual such as "20k oil interval really means 2.6 oil changes need to be completed within that duration."

I know this thread is old but it's always a topic.
I just changed the oil today, I followed the instructions on page 1 post 1.
Did not work.
I have the 07 e90 with i drive
So I started the car then depressed the reset button, got the triangle than the oil light, pushed in the bc button, it showed reset, I pushed again and got the clock and it reset. Although it shows 15000 miles, I wrote down the mileage and plan to do it at 7500 instead of the 15k.
Thanks, this brought me in the right direction.
Only thing different I had to do was actually start the car.

I can confirm this will work if you already have the "red car on a lift" icon displayed - as others have noted, wait for the red car to be replaced by the time, and then press the trip reset button.

You won't get the triangle, however - you'll be dumped right into the service menu as far as I can tell.

Wait a second or so after you see your first icon, then let the reset button go.

1: put fob in
2: hit the stop/start button
3: wait for the time to appear
4: depress and hold the trip reset button
5: Wait for the first icon to be displayed
6: After 1 second of the icon being displayed, let the trip button go

Me Too

After following this thread http://www.e90post.com/forums/showth...1#post11824405 I couldn't understand why the OP of this post didn't work. By not working I mean I could see the menu choices but it would not let me reset them. On the other thread someone said it was definitely the rear sensor. WRONG! On my 06 330i it was the front sensor, Arrrggg

Anyway this poster here smithrh is 100% correct, you have to wait till the red car goes away. I however did not get the time icon after and I dont think it matters as long as you press and hold the trip reset after the red car goes away.

Quick FYI, mine was stuck on the car on lift.

If you have that issue, wait for service to disappear, when car on lift shows up, press BC once to clear, and then immediately press the trip button.

So I just changed my rear brakes and replaced the sensor with new one but I still get ------- when I try and reset the service interval. Any suggestions? Could I have damaged the sensor when installing, or installed it incorrectly?

After a longer period of forgetting, here are my results:
Because I have a 320d touring "only", I haven't those two-phase sensors, but the simple one (just a single wire), even only one per axle.
I had it wear already, so here was no soldering option and I had to buy a new one as others.

This is what I did. The whole waiting for icons to change threw me off. Just do it off of time.

1) Insert key
2) Turn on car without pressing clutch or brake (engine will not start)
3) wait for service reminder to turn off and press the odometer button.
4) Hold button for 5-6 second and then release
5) Use left stalk to cycle through the options of which service reminder you want to reset.
6) press BC button to select option for reset. Hold BC button on reset option to perform reset (you will see a cycling clock icon).

7) unslot key to complete

Steering lock light (red)

With the Steering lock light on I am unable to reset the service indicator light.
I have followed these instructions:-

Step 1
Insert key into slot
Step 2
Press start/stop button without depressing clutch/brake and wait for the service reminder to dissapear.
Step 3
Immediately after service reminder goes out, press and hold the odometer reset. After 3 secs a warning triangle will appear, keep the odo. button pressed and after another 2-3 secs the Oil can will appear. I f you hold it too long (10 secs in total) you will overshoot the runway and some German writing will appear giving the software level/ can bus etc. of the car. Go back to the beginning and start again.
Step 4

Step 6
You can now either scroll up/down to select another item (as in step 4) or you can press the start/stop button to exit.

ALSO is it possible to reset the Steering lock indicator?

PLEASE HELP and I AM NEW TO THIS FORUM.
Many thanks in advance.

Have been trying various combinations and success at last...

After step 2) .... service light comes up, immediately followed by Steering lock light.
The Steering lock light needs to "cleared" by pressing BC button..... wait for the "time" to be displayed. Now all the Steps 3 on wards work are per usual.

I am having issues with the reset of my front brake pads and I'm hoping SOMEONE will know wtf is going on with my car. I followed the steps all the way to the end and am able to reset the front brake pads but when it resets, it doesn't apply a new mileage to the next notification. Mine was showing at -30mls but after I reset it, it now says ----mls and the service notification still pops up every time I start the car. Has anyone experienced this and can help?

Same here. But there is a sensor involved too. I dont know what mileage has to do with brake pads. We all drive differently and it is presumably the sensor that is what needs to be reset, not the mileage to next service.

I couldnt get into the service reset menue with the instructions in this post, it kept going to the car on lift indicator immediately after the triangle with exclamation point in it. But this worked: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qIV2fIZ0tfQ

Oh and read above where somebody posted a link to Bentley Publishing note about the sensor wearing out and basically it looks like we need to order new sensors.
