    As some of you guys have more knowledge than me on this... I tried reading about INPA or whatever it is... and I dont have a OBDII like it says in DD's guide on that stuff...

    All I want to do is rest my lights to green with a tool that will do it...

    A link to one of these tools would be most helpful!

    I can bring my Peake Research reader to the Autobrite meet if you want Damion, free diagnostics as well as a service reset....

    You can do it by shorting the SI pin to GND (with IGN on) and counting, then cycling the ignition to check.

    Over 10s and it's an Inspection 2 fluids service reset, sub 8s it's an oil service.

    Pin Signal Description
    1 Engine rotation speed TD
    2 OBD-II diagnostic
    7 Oil service and Inspection reset
    11 External starter turn on
    14 Battery power
    15 ISO 9141-2 L Line RXD- Diagnostic Data link
    16 Ignition +12V
    17 ISO 9141-2 K Line n/c?
    18 PGSP Programming line
    19 GND
    20 ISO 9141-2 K Line TXD - Diagnostic data link


    AS with anything, don't miss and put the wires in the wrong holes. Personally I use chassis GND rather than pin 19, because 18 and 20 are populated.


    This link says 4s for an oil reset. I found it was more like 7s. http://www.bmwe36blog.com/2007/02/24...service-light/

    You can do this but you run the risk of blowing the ECU and you could also blow it so that you can't plug a diagnostics tool into it in the future-For the sake of a tenner I would get the reset tool

    As yes, I remember this discussion, if I recall it came down to one user who was a bit vague about what he'd been doing, happily shorting pins left right and centre on a car that was very sick already. Also I seem to recall it was the diagnostic line (pin 20) that went down, suggesting further that he got the wrong pin.

    Contrasted with the hundreds of thousands of BMW owners across the world who have been using this method for years.

    Finally I pointed out that all the diasgnostic lines are 12V capable, and that a vaule of GND equates to a logic 1 and 12V to a logic 0 and therefore cannot do harm because that's the communication method.

    Quite what went wrong for that guy I don't know, but then everything has at least one bad review somewhere on the internet.
