Resetting Service Lights on a 518i 1996

Hi there,

I am new to this site so hello!

I am trying to reset the oil change and service lights on my 518i (1996).

Has anybody got an idea of how I can do it myself?

Thanks

Cameron

Thumbs up Resetting service lights

Hi there, do the following: switch ignition on. Connect a LED test lamp between terminal 7 of the engine diagnostic connector and earth. After 3 seconds 5 green LED'S will illuminate. Switch ignition off. Service lights the same except: after 12 seconds 5 green LED's will illuminate. Diagnostic connector located adjacent to left or right-hand turret or bulkhead.
Regards,
leonz
