How to Reset a BMW Service Indicator


The BMW has incorporated a service indicator light as a maintenance schedule reminder for many years. It’s the best kept secret of BMW to have this light reset by the dealership only in order to maintain customer loyalty on routine oil changes and other simple maintenance procedures.

If you prefer to perform your own oil changes, you can reset the indicator light yourself. Depending on what series model you have, the procedure might alter slightly and for older and vintage BMWs, there’s a tool required.

Step 1

Sit inside the BMW, close the door and buckle the seat belt.
