Engine Service Soon SIA reset possible??

Hi,
I have recently had the vehicle serviced (out of state) and couple weeks later I have "Engine Service Soon" control light on. I tried to follow the reset instructions with the reset button in the cluster and turning the key into the position one, after holding it for few seconds the message SIA 2810 1 appears , then after pressing the button again "END" appears but won't let me reset and the "Engine Service Soon " message remains. I wonder is there is a way to reset it or if I have to bring it to a mechanic. Any advice is appreciated

Do you mean service engine soon light? That light has nothing to do with your service interval display where there are five green lights. You performed the service interval display reset not the service engine soon light reset.

Service engine soon light is related to OBD II. It requires that you use a OBD II scanNER to read the codes & reset the warning light...but after you red the code to find out what area of your car's electronic engine emissions system set a adult code.

Most states except California & Hawaii, & Oregon (sorry if I missed one)...will allow free scans from auto parts stores like Autozone, PepBoys, etc. If this is possible...go get your car scanned, then post back or google your DTC code (diagnostic trouble code). The purpose of the federal OBDII mandate was to standardize emission diagnostics across all car mfgs.




BTW...the SIA 2810 1 message indicates the number of liters of fuel you need to consume before the next Service Interval Display maintenance warning will come on. Again, the SI display is for OIL SERV & Inspection services...they have nothing to do with your SES warning light which is associated with OBD II and engine emissions issues.

Service Interval Display (totally different than the Service Engine Soon warning & OBD II emissions systems)

Thanks for the advice. Indeed it's the "service engine soon" light . I did bring it to local auto zone, it read " P1092 No DTC definition found. See service manual CONFIRMED". The mechanic said he could't see anything wrong with it and couldn't reset it. I searched for the code and found that -P1092 is Pre-Catalyst Fuel Trim Too Lean Bank 2. The car has 69K miles on it, should I be taking it to BMW service center? Or is there a way to clear the code with a scanner? Thanks

The internet is our friend. It's great you have a DTC code...the Actron scanner may not have a definition for it...but again, the internet draws upon the collective. I typed "BMW P1092 OBD II" into a google search box and got this link as the very top result...it give multple possible culprits:
