I will provide an honest answer. I trust this will be appreciated. Please remember that a low rating PUNISHES me for being honest and that I receive nothing for my time until a positive rating is clicked.


thank you for your attention to the rating requirement.


if the reset procedure does not work then it will need to be reset with a bmw scan tool. if you would like to save $ vs the dealer for this, check out or for options.


sorry if you were hoping for a different answer, but I trust that my honesty and quick response on a Saturday is appreciated.


Please let me know if you have further questions. Please do not forget to click a positive rating as this is the only way I receive credit for my answer, thank you. Best wishes with your vehicle.

if you haven't, you can unhook the vehicle battery for an hour and then try the reset again.
