Search Unable to reset oil service indicator on BMW 330i ???
Good day Gents.

Have just done a major service on my 330i E90 2005 model.

Cannot reset the oil service on the OBD cluster display.

When accomplishing the reset it goes through the motions, resets the date to 09/2019, however the Km remains on 1000km... WTF...

Any suggestions would be most appreciated.

Am puzzled???BlueCry

Thank you

Whats the mileage on the car? Can you confirm the oil level sensor is working? Can you get an oil level reading?

Oil level sensor in the mid position after putting in 6.5L oil.

Car has 93000km, mint condition, no previous related issues.

Are you holding the little mileage reset pin in till you get the yellow exclamation mark?

Based Greenstone/JHB area.

When I did the oil service i put in exactly 6.5L oil, checked the oil level, it indicated midway, so put in another 200ml, it still only indicated midway, so Im not sure of the integrity of the sensor.

just got the car perfect again, now this BlueCry

When I attempt the reset, the yellow triangle with exclamation mark does not appear, however it allows me into the reset menu, I have reset all other items related to a full service, brakes, pollen filter, fluid ext, except for the oil service reset???

Ok, just found this video. I have not stepped on the brake pedal while pressing the odometer reset, will try tom afternoon when back home.
