I have edited your title on this occasion but add

1999 E46 328ci - your meaningful title

next time please....

If you have followed the guide and cant get it to work

This applies to earlier e46 models. eg. 99-00 with OBDI. (a round connector for the diagnostic socket)

1. Locate the 20-PIN DLC Connector. It is located under the hood, passenger side empty compartment.

It looks like this.





2. Turn the key to position 2. key position before the engine start.

3. For OIL RESET, just ground PIN 7 and PIN 19 for 3 seconds.

4. For ENGINE SERVICE light, ground PIN 7 and PIN 19 for 9 seconds.

if that doesnt work or its not OBD1 then you may need to buy a Peak research tool (google it or search this forum...)

You have the older OBC commands just like mine. I'm afraid it requires a hard reset from the diagnostic port, so I would suggest getting a specific reset tool that won't break the bank. I have heard of people trying to reset using the 'pin short' method, but then running into problems.

Some OBCs may not work to the pin shorts and will leave the port in a 'floating' state (electronic term) where it won't respond until hooked up to Autologic or G1 test equipment.
