BMW Oil Service / Inspection Reset Tool

12:21:00 AM
I've ordered this oil service reset tool for BMW models 2001 - current (OBD2 on-board diagnostics)

Apparently this tool didn't work quite right. Followed their manual and instruction and it doesn't reset my oil service mileage. So I did a little bit of research and managed to reset the oil service without the tool itself.

Here's how:-
1. Hold on to the odo meter trip (the mileage will appear)
2. Turn key to position 1(while holding the odo meter trip)
3. Keep the odo trip button pressed (about 5 secs.) until you see "Oil Service" or "Inspection" with "Reset" or "Re" in the display
4. Release and press the Odo trip button for another 5 seconds until "Reset" flashes
5. While flashing Press odo trip briefly and you are back to 25,000 again!

That was my personal experience, got the tip from http://www.bmwtips.com/tipsntricks/reset-plug/reset.htm

Humm, now who wants to buy my reset tool?
