For all you guys changing your own oil....

I was wondering how you reset the light bar under the odometer after you change your oil.

Thanks,
Chris

Some don't but you can either have the dealer do it for you, or you can buy the tool to do it. I have the multi function one where it will reset the service indicator and check the engine for codes. Comes in handy.

You can buy one if you don't want to use the wire jumping version. Also looks like there is an airbag reset tool a little further down the page. I use the peake reset tool instead of the wire version.

I'm gonna jump the wires to take care of it (the oil change). You think there is a way to reset the airbag light using the same method?

I have the same airbag problem. I just purchased a cheap air bag reset tool for 40 usd. I googled bmw air bag reset tool and found a few. It is made in China should get it in the mail tomorrow. I'll let you know if it works. Heres a link to one i found quickly. DealExtreme: $57.10 B200 BMW Airbag (SRS) Scan & Reset Tool . Its alot more convenient and cheaper than going to the stealer.
PS: I have researched this immensely and have not fond a wire jump fix for the air bag light.
