: OBC Reset

03-11-2011, 08:52 AM

I recently had the oil changed, new brakes , filters etc so I stopped by the dealer to have him reset the OBC which he did. Now it doesn't count down, i. e reads 30,000 for oil, 50,000 for brakes etc.
How do I reset it so it show the kilometres and or miles remaining before the required maintenance.

Also I recently had a flat and need to reset the warning light, anyone know how?

thank you

Since you just had brakes & oil done and the OBC reset, those are the readings you should be getting. In the US, the countdowns change at 1,000 mile intervals, so you should see those figures for a while.

To reset your tire warning, see "FTM (Flat Tire Monitor) - Resetting the system" in your owner's manual. It is either done through iDrive or the dash computer, depending on how your car is equipped. Naturally, you should make certain that all 4 tires are inflated to the correct pressures before doing the reset.
