ANYBODY KNOW HOW TO RESET SERVICE LIGHTS WITHOUT BUYING BMW RESET TOOL AND IS THERE A WAY TO GET INTO MY 535 IF I HAVE A FLAT BATTERY (CENTRAL LOCKING )
HOPE YOU LADS CAN HELP
YES, AND YES. But you have to ask in a quiet voice...you can't just rush in here, get what you need, and take off!
The service lights can be reset without the tool, but you need to know which pins and how long to short between them...search archives for correct pins to short.
