    i just used a metal paperclip to reset my service light, bend a metal paperclip into a U shape and pop one end in pin 7 which is at the bottom and the other in pin 19 which is (if ur going clockwise) 1 pin up from 7 then 2 pins across. turn ur key 2 clicks keep the paperclip in there for 3 secs to reset the oil service light and 12 secs to reset the inspection lights :-)

    I have a 97 318is, with the 20 pin connector, I tried the paperclip method but doesn't seem to work?

    I open the connector cover and insert paperclip into pin 7 and 19, then turn the key to position two (when the dashboard says "inspection"). I then wait ~12 seconds an turn the ignition off, remove the paperclip, close the cover and when I turn the key again it still says inspection. :s confused

    Try giving the contacts a bit of a rub with some wet n dry. Should work if you have decent contcts, and if your using the right holes.

    You do this type of reset at your own risk. If you hang the k-line on the diag bus, then you will need DIS or Autologic equipment to fix it.
