E60 idrive screen slow on startup.

My e60 has been having this problem for a while, where when I start the car the idrive doesn't turn on right away. It will stay black and after a while it will turn on any ideas?

Excellent, thanks Joe. Worked for 2006 E60 523i, all items could be reset. Now I just need to remember to actually replace the break fluid :-)

Excellent, thanks Joe. Worked for 2006 E60 523i, all items could be reset. Was just a little difficult to work out how to change dates or ranges, so I just took what I could get. Now I just need to remember to actually replace the break fluid :-)

Smile How to reset IDrive Information Warning

2007 BMW 750iL - reset miles back to "0". Then with electronics on but motor off pushed the mileage knob as directed.
Message showed up in the lage left hand guage face and pushed the "reset knob until the desired item (in my case Microfilter) was highlighted.
Then pushed the reset knob once more. Message showed up in the large right hand guage face. Pushed reset knob until "reset" was highlighted. Then pushed reset knob.
Turned off by pushing start-stop engine button.
Yellow warning light now off and status of micro-filter is "ok".
Only difference I found to the instructions is that messages I was expecting to show up in the "triangle" below the transmission mode appeared in on the face of the spedo and tack.
Thanks to all who posted instructions

Thank you very much for this clear and complete guide. This has been really helpful, possibly saved lots of time that would have otherwise been spent driving to BMW workshop, and money of course.

road worthy warning

Will this method work for a warning light on 2007 335i that relates to the car being "road worthy"?

Newby Hello

Hello all. This is a first for me, so I'll try to sound intelligent. I'm interested in resetting the "Service" message in my 2010 528i. I purchased the car in July of this year off of a certified pre-owned lot. I've learned that the oil in these cars are supposed to last for 15,000 miles which seems a bit long to me. Nonetheless, this oil should last at least another 6 months. What would be the step by step method of resetting the oil life mileage?

Service warning message resolved

After reading a post under the DIY H.Q. thread, I was able to reset the oil mileage interval back to 15,000 miles. Now I just need to find what it will take to reset the daytime running lights (left and right) replacement message. After replacing the H8 factory bulbs with LED lights, the message appeared. Is this a reprogram by the dealer or can it be fixed by d.i.y. method?

Works flawlessly

Just had an authorized dealer install new micro filters and inspect my 2007 5 series but they failed to reset the annoying service reminders. This methodology worked perfectly and with a brief reading reset both in less than 2 minutes. Extremely helpful post - thanks!

All,

I did this for my oil and it worked fine.. however I mistimed it and my front brake pads that were due in 2000 miles now says -9000 miles and I am not able to reset this back to its original. Tried all possible ways above and it did not work. Now I have brake pad waring light and iDrive says since 9000 miles change brake pads.. How do I reset this now??
Any other ideas?? I have 2010 car E60. Any help appreciated..
