I have done my oil reset with the carsoft interface 6.5, so I have wrote this little guide for some people that had few problems installing the carsoft and after that how to reset your oil light at dash board.
1. Install carsoft:
1). Open folder “carsoft 6-5 -install this first”
click setup and follow the info in install windows, just don’t change anything in till at the end, and then click finish.
2).Open folder “carsoft 6-5 -install cr2 second”
copy all the files to your installation directory, “my computer/c drive (or whatever drive you using as the main for your operating system), /program files/carsoft/bmw/ paste all files there (override all) (replace all)
3).Now to start carsoft click “CARSOFT65BMW” in c/program files/carsoft/bmw/ then : CARSOFT65BMW .(this will bypass the main screen for carsoft and will go directly to the diagnosis window!
4) .So now you have the diagnosis window open, click “diagnosis data”
go to “settings” and make sure you set at “port com 1.” Serial port, and make sure that you put your serial cable in the top serial port at your pc!,some pc’s have to ports.
Now I assume that you have installed the carsoft right, and then run it, next to look on how to reset the oil light.
1).Start carsoft (like I told you above) c/program files/carsoft/bmw/ then : CARSOFT65BMW .
2).Plug your obd 20 pin cable into the diagnosis plug under the hood, then on the line you have the interface ,and on the other side the serial cable to your pc serial port.
3.Turn your ignition key on (all the way to the dash illumination lights ,but DO NOT start the engine!)
4.Go to your pc and click in the carsoft program ,click “special functions” then “service- interval reset” then ” normal si-reset” then it should be like 10-15 sec, to get the oil light reset.
If you look in that time to your carsoft interface you will see a green light at “power” the “red” light on at “si-reset” ,now it depends on the model of carsoft interface you have.
At the end ,if you look at your dash you will see that all lights at the oil are “green” (is about 5 of them)
Well, that all, thanks.
It worked well for me with this guide. Hope it also do you a favor.
