A dealer will re-set the service interval indicator for you after each routine service but if you want/need to re-set it yourself then...

1) With the ignition turned off, press and hold the trip meter reset button (it's on the RH side of the speedo near the base)
2) Turn the ignition switch to position 1
3) After about 5 seconds, the display (in the speedo) should read Oil Service or Inspection with the words reset or re
4) Release the button then press it again and hold it. After about 5 seconds the word reset or re should flash/blink
5) Release the button, press it and then release it again. The new service interval should now be displayed
6) Press and release the button once more and it should say End SIA
7) Turn off the ignition (i.e turn the key back from position 1)

And that's how to re-set the service interval indicator

Apologies for bumping a very old thread but these were the first set of instructions that I actually got to work!

Just wanted to say thanks and also to comment that I think 15,500 miles is rather a long time to wait until the next oil change... Think I'll get the oil changed at 7,000 and then again when the Mini says it is due.

Will these instructions work for a 2010? The 2010 does not have a key that turns. Any help would be appreciated.
