Does anyone know if the Service Engine Soon light will reset itself if it was triggered by a loose gas cap on a 2000 540i Sport? My dealer told me that the light was a result of this but didn't know if it would reset if the gas cap was correctly screwed on.
While this is a somewhat new car to me, I feel that I know how to put a gas cap on. That being said, I evidently didnt get it on right after a fill up. Is there a trick to doing this on this car that Im not aware of? When I do put it on, it only seems like it wants to turn a quarter turn before locking into place.
