service warning light

My 320 mt,born in Jan 2008,bought in May 2008,first service in Apri 09 at about 9000Km. Now it runs at 15000km.Drivers well.but I found service flash at the dash board at start time these days, but when I looked into bc, in the service-info menu, It seems everything ok.This happened about few days ago, after the temp got freezed here in Beijing.so need I go to service?

i think your talking about service light at start ups then disappears..that means you should schedule for service. if you look at the service-info menu, everything says ok(like you said) but if you press on certain ones (i.e. oil or break fluid) it'll give you a month and year for service

You likely mean the message that appears when you turn the ignition on; the message only tells you when you should take your car in for a regular, scheduled maintenance - there is no need to worry. If you want to check the systems on the car, you can do it, all of them or one at a time, using the menu. If you still worry, take your car to the dealer, you likely have a similar prepaid maintenance system as we have over here.

so as you said, it's just a prompting? It tells me ,"hi, boy!!althought everything is ok now ,but don't forget to check the service info to ensure not to miss up every service piece."
I am a careful man ,so I think it's not nessrory to prompt me before,just appear in time is alright!!

My service light was coming on and going off as well. Took my care in for service and they told me it was time to have the brake flush done. They did that and change the cabin filter.
