    Hey everyone,

    The process for resetting the oil light and sevice interval i already know, link pins 7 and 19, switch ignition to Pos 2, count to 10, remove link, ignition off and done....thing is....were are pins 7 and 19? the wee numbers on my plug are deadly hard to make out and i don't want to short wrong pins.

    Also, i remember reading somewhere on the net that the lt/100km can be changed to MPG some where in test 1? As far as i can remember there are 19 sub menus in test 1, and one is an unlock menu and the others do temp sensor degrees/farenheit, digital speedo, digital tacho, etc etc. Does anyone know which one does the fuel comsumption readout though? my e39 has the non highline dash. (single reset button)

    Any help very much appreiciated,

    Jonny

    Hi

    I have the same problem with my E39 530d. I want to change the L/100KM to read in MPG. Did you figure out how to do this?
