There does not seem to be one "procedure". The sequence of ingition on-short pins-countdown-remove short-turn off ignition does not seem to work on all cars.

Try a change in the sequence. For example, some find that they have to have the short in place before they turn on the ignition. Experiment with that and see if you have any success.

If all else fails, you may try a dealer or shop who has the special reset tool. If that fails too, you may be faced with having to work on the SI board. Check archives for this problem on the earliest E34s.

Good luck,

Thanks for the advice I will let you know how it goes
