    Looking through the articles, the ignition key has to be in Pos 2 and the length of time the reset is held determines the reset type - it looks like 3 to 4 seconds for oil reset?

    I bought a reset tool from Bavarian Dominator, cost about £15
    can be used to reset the clock symbol & service indicator lights
