So I was told by a Toyota Supra tech that either I need to get them to reset it at Toyota with their scan tool or get to around 40% of the 10k miles interval before I can reset it myself with the dash board button. Lol Who knows!!

Quick update: I emailed the developers for BimmerLink (they also make BimmerCode) and they plan to add Service Reset capability to the iOS application within the next few weeks. No exact date but that sounds promising.

I think it’s already available for the Android version as it’s advertised on their webpage. If someone has the app for Android and wants to check and report back that‘d be awesome.

Found this, might work.

Nope, tried that. Lol I wish.

There is really only three options to turn off the oil reset light if you haven’t reached a percentage of your miles service interval. 1. Reset the year to trick the car into thinking it’s not due yet. 2. Have a Toyota scan tool to reset it. 3. Reach a certain % of the miles interval and the oil maintenance reset will be possible.

I haven't reached any marker yet. But I'm not gonna get close to 10k miles a year. Would be silly to go to the dealer just to do the reset.

Agreed. I spoke to some European shops and they are getting back to me on which scan tool they use that can turn it off. I am hoping bimmer code or some obd2 scan app will have the capability soon. I think it’s stupid for the the people don’t reach close to a 10k miles a year won’t be able to reset the oil maintenance light themselves. Dumb as heck!

BimmerLink released an iOS update today with service reset capability. I haven’t hit break in/changed my oil yet, but hopefully someone can give it a try and post back.
