In Reply to: Reseting Oil Service Light/Coolant Reccomendations posted by Tom on September 27, 2001 at 21:02:31:

Hi everyone. Two quick questions; first, how can I reset my oil light sans reset tool (searched the threads here and at to no avail.) Second, what kind of coolant do you reccomend? Dexcool? Prestone? BMW? (95 525i). Since water wetter has proven effetive in the past I plan to use that as well.

Thanks guys!

There's only been about a zillion posts about resetting service lights. Visit the following site, and print out the pages for future reference. It's for an E36, but the same procedure applies to your car. You won't be sorry.

As for coolant, go with BMW. No ifs, ands, or buts.
