Mein Auto: 2007 525i
Ignition Coil replaced, service engine soon light on.

I had my car puttering before and I took a BMW dealership only to find out that it was a ignition/engine coil and the cost of it was only $59 but they charge me $200 for the swapping which took 1.5 minutes. So my car started doing it again this morning and I knew what it was so I went to advance auto parts and bought the part (ignition coil) because I could not wait until eBay mailed me an OEM one., It would've taken too long.

Before swapping them I saw that the service engine soon light was coming on and off and the more I drove it just went on permanently and did not turn off because the car was puttering and had a bad coil. Once I swapped coils, the car went back to normal immediately but the service engine soon light stayed on and it will not come off. Nothing else is wrong with the car, gas cap is on tight and again nothing is wrong with the car but the coil which was replaced.

I have a 2007 525 I, what do I need to do to get that service engine soon light removed? I do not want to go in the menu pressing the odometer and reset service or oil change or any of that, is there anything I can do to remove that service engine soon light? I have heard in other forums that the more you drove it will just go away my itself, a guy actually had the same problem as me and swapped coils and the same thing happened to him but after him driving about six times it went away. Can I get the light to be gone?

Sorry about that. Probably some electronic problem. And what made you change the coil? What was the indication? Thx!
