Service Light Reset

Hi, I'm so fed up with high garage costs that I have started to service my old 1998 5 series E39 520i myself. I've changed the oil and filter and a few other things and now wish to reset the service indicator. I've unscrewed the pin housing under the bonnet and found it has 9 holes and 4 pins in the cover. Is this the correct place to reset the service indicator or is it somewhere? I read that I have to short out pin 9 and 17 but how do I tell which pin is which? Thanks for any help you can give

You need a magnifying glass and light to read the numbers though. Anyway - thanks. I will probably have more questions on others things if I can't find the answers myself.

No problem, Howard... Glad you're sorted mate...
It's sometimes faster to give you the links to see for yourself, as opposed to a long-winded explantion !!

Airbag light is a different story...
The passenger seat Occupancy sensor is a common fault, either replace it, or by a cheap by-pass from ebay !!!

Sometimes (not very often), it could be as simple as unplugging and then re-plugging the connector under the seat !
