Guide to Reset the E90/E91/E92/E93 Service Indicator Lights

I am going to show you how to reset your service lights with a simple YouTube video I made earlier. It requires no tools or anything, just a few buttons to press on your car and you’re set.

Which means you can DIY the service for your car.

Here are the steps:

Place a key in the ignition switch and press the start button. Wait until all check lights and beeping goes out. Put your foot on the brake pedal and hold odometer reset until yellow triangle comes up. As soon as that happens; release it (odometer reset button) and use scroll on left side of steering wheel to find an icon that you want to reset service light for. Press the top button (BC button) on left control handle and reset “light” will come on. Press again and hold it for few seconds. That should do it. You can keep scrolling until you reset all that needs to be done. Once you are done take a keyfob out and you are ready to go!



I hope this guide helps some of you guys when you do your own oil changes and stuff like that

Great Post - took a couple tries to get the sequence right but in the end (3 minutes) worked perfectly! Keep up the great work!

When holding the odometer and brake, make sure you hold it past the yellow triangle and it will automatically go into the service reset menu.
If you release the odometer too early it screws up the sequence.

Just to clarify if anyone is having any trouble

The "not sure what this is" is a road worthiness test and related emissions test. This does not evidence a problem, but is more of a reminder of inspection and emissions test for your state/county/municipality, etc. Thanks for the reset info...
