2008-2021 BMW X6 Oil Service Light Reset Guide (E71/F16/G06)

Hello Bimmers! It’s me again. I flew over to England the other day, but unfortunately, I could not find any cars to film. I remember that my dad said that the Bentley dealer when he bought his BMW X6 E71/F16/G06 could not reset the oil service lights even though they did the oil change on the car.

Anyway, it will take less than a minute to sort out this content. This will also work on the G06, and I guess, other cars from the same generation. In other words, the last of the III generation cars. If you have an F-generation car-like that might be the F16 series, then read this guide. It would be straightforward for you to follow.

Alright, we’re going to be doing a service reset for the engine oil on the BMW X6 E71. This is also applied to the brakes, vehicle check, or anything else you cannot do via the idrive screen. So the way you do this is:

  1. Turn on the ignition without start up the engine

    The first thing you need to do is to insert the key into the key slot and then press the START switch twice but do not put your foot on the brake; otherwise, the car will start up

  2. Hold down the RESET button

    Now press and hold the RESET button until the service thingy appears. The first symbol that will appear is the engine oil light. If you’re not quick enough with this menu, the service screen will disappear

  5. Hold the RESET button down again
