here is a pic of the service port. put jumper wire between #19 and #7. how do i reset the service indicator on abmw 328i-servicereset_diagnostic_port_01.jpgThe service indicator lights are reset by connecting pin 7 to pin 19(ground). The proper way to do this is to have the ignition off and place a jumper wire between pins 7 and 19 (make sure you get the right pins!). Then turn the ignition switch to position 1 (accessory), when the service light goes out, turn the ignition off. The difference between resetting the oil service light and the inspection light is in the length of time you have the jumper in place with the ignition on. This means that if you are resetting the oil service light, you should turn off the ignition immediately after the light goes out. If you leave the jumper in too long with the ignition on, you will perform an inspection reset as well and the next service indicator will come up as an oil service rather than an inspection. make sure you get the right ports or you will have electrical problems

hey carguy13 i've been trying to find the site where i was reading about a guy who used the wrong ports to reset his oil service but can't find it. i do remember that he would have random interior lights coming on and buzzers going off. i'll keep looking and post it when i find it

yes I read it all.. but my car does not have anything in the # 19 hole
so I was thinking maybe it was just a generic answer
I thought someone else may have had another answer.. or responce
