    I dont think anything needs to be reset as such it could be a number of things i would start buy checking your fuses and connections to the light units to see if they have disrupted anything the alternative is to take it to wherever you had the work carried out and explain the situation to them as it must be something they have done your fuses are in the top side of your glove box

    Hi Tomobmw7.

    Following on from your telephone call.

    I think this fault is caused by the K-bus, a single wire which connects instrumentation and gadgets in the car (not engine or ABS). This has gone faulty. I have posted a good primer on BMW bus systems here:
