Mein Auto: 2006 X3 diesel
Look on the instrument clusteryou will see 2 buttons in the lower centre part of the dash,

1) Make sure the ignition is swiched off, press and hold the left button and turn the ignition on to the first position keep holding the button down until you see the display change

2)Lift you finger and press and hold again untill reset appears ( normally after aprox 5 seconds ) it will also flash, once this happens lift your finger again

3) Then press and release straight away, this should reset the service indicator.

I tried the above method to reset the service indicator after changing the oil and filter in my 2006 X3 diesel, but now I have a minus symbol in front of some numbers, does that mean I haven't done it correctly? I have tried numerous times but no change.
Any help greatly appreciated!
