Many models in the BMW 1-series are equipped with a maintenance system that monitors driving conditions to calculate when regular maintenance should be completed. When the computer determines it is time for regular service, a reminder light is illuminated on the control panel. After the scheduled service is performed, the service lights should be reset in order for the computer to accurately track when the next service will be due.
1. Insert the key into the ignition.
2. Press the “Start/Stop” button. Wait for the service reminder lights to turn on and off.
3. Press and hold the trip odometer “Reset” button.
4. Release the “Reset” button when the service menu appears.
5. Press the “Menu” button on the end of the turn signal arm to move through the menu until the service reset option is highlighted.
6. Press and hold the “Reset” button until the service light resets.
When a service is needed based on the car’s mileage or time since the last service, the display screen on a Mercedes C230 will notify you. The display screen is located within the speedometer on the instrument panel. Mercedes mechanics will reset the Service B notification light after the service is performed. If you performed the service, you need to reset the light yourself. Service B includes an oil and filter change, a tire rotation and other maintenance checks.
1. Insert the key into the ignition and turn it until the battery comes or the engine turns on.
2. Locate the left and right arrow buttons on the left side of your steering wheel. Press either button until the mileage is displayed on the instrument panel display screen.
3. Press the up or down button until the service symbol appears on the screen.
4. Locate the trip odometer reset button to the left of the instrument panel. Hold the reset button for a few seconds until the screen displays the message, “Do you want to reset the service interval? Confirm with the R-button.” Release the button once the phrase appears.
5. Press the reset button to reset the Service B notification.

How to Reset the Service Light Citroen Xsara Picasso
Recently I have had a few requests for Citroen Xsara Picasso Service Light Reset information from people who service their own vehicles.
Being a mobile mechanic and auto diagnostic specialist I could use the stock answer and say “I’ll have to plug it in for you”.
As you have no doubt seen through my other posts I do not believe in making things difficult for the home mechanic.
Here is the procedure:
Sit in drivers seat ignition off and handbrake applied.
Press and hold trip reset button.
Turn key to position two (ignition lights on engine not started).
Keeping the trip reset button pressed in you will notice your trip meter counting down.
When zero (0) is reached start the car and the service light (spanner symbol) should now be extinguished.
Please only use this information after your vehicle has been serviced
