How to reset oil service / brake pad service indicator

1. Without pressing the brake/clutch, press the start/stop button
2. Wait for the service reminder to disappear
3. Press and hold the odometer reset button. You will notice your trip meter reset and then go back to the value it once was. Keep holding for a couple more seconds

At this point, service values that can be reset will come up. Use the odometer reset button to scroll through the menu.

4. At the value you want to reset, press and hold the odometer reset button. "Reset possible" will change to "Reset?"
5. Press and hold odometer reset button again until value is reset
6. Press the start/stop button to start car or turn off car

Hi
For some reason after the last oil change i couldn't reset the mileage through the cluster

Every time i try to reset i get an error message "reset unsuccessful"
Now its showing "-2000 kMs"

I have a retrofitted NBT so i dont want to go for BMW service as they will say the car needs reprogramming. The guy who retrofitted my NBT said i can use some tools such as ISTA or ISPI NEXT to reset the oil interval

Any feedback will be appreciated

Cheers

I have the exact same problem with my 2012 335i and the dealership in Syracuse can never get it right the first time without me traveling an hour just for them to reprogram the darn car. Does anyone know of a workaround or is this something that any other service center can do without me having to go to the BMW dealership?

Actually what solved me problem was not BMW authorized dealer. Another unauthorized dealer reset the oil interval for me. He just resets this ecu

Took me several tries, but it finally worked. Many thanks!

Anyone know how to reset the vehicle inspection reminder? It's not on the list that appears in this reset thread.

Never mind, figured it out in iDrive.

Reset what? Brakes? If the wear sensor has been tripped it must be replaced to reset the brake wear indicator.

Does the sensor have 2 trip points, one at 3000-ish miles, the other at minimum pad thickness?

It has one trip point, at about 3mm. When mine went off it started counting down from 1,000 miles, literally, with an update every 100 miles.

So if pads are replaced at 5mm without tripping sensor, then very likely sensor will not need replacement then. My guess is the electrical contact can be cleaned up and the sensor can be reused.

You can reuse the sensor if it hasn't been tripped. I did on my front pads. It didn't trip because the front sensor is on the driver's side, while the pads that were just about toast were on the passenger side.

Just Finally put my rear brakes on the 2015 435iX. The instructions at the top worked perfectly.

I drove another 4500 miles after the rear sensor activated. I didn't realize the car would tell me if it was the front or rear, so I eyeballed them and thought the fronts were more worn, and bought and replaced those only to see the front sensor was not tripped.

At 4500 miles after sensor trip the rear pads had still not worn down to metal, but they were getting close.

I've got the single piston rear calipers, and 4 piston front.
There are apparently 3 different rear brakes.

First time I ever did this type of front brakes, it was quite easy - knocking out the pins with a punch is easier than getting the floating caliper pins back in, I like it.

You should start a new thread so that your question will be visible, as the subject is not that same as that of this thread.

When I try this, I get the following menu:

Identification
System test
Start roller
Test end
Unlock

How do I get to the menu to reset my brake fluid & pads?

Thanks.

Did some more digging. I was holding the button down too long. Brakes reset

I also unlocked that menu (unlock code is the sum of the last 5 digits of VIN) and found some potentially interesting menu options.
