You need a re-set tool or pay a shop to do it. -
Answer 2
Turn your ignition key to the accessory position when the lights and radio come on (before starting the car). Press and hold the "Trip" button on the instrument panel until the red light comes on. Press the "Trip" button a second time and hold until "Reset" appears. Press the "Trip" button a third time. The computer is now reset. -

Your instructions worked. I bought the OBD2 tool on Ebay and it did not work so it prompted me to search on the internet for a solution. Good thing I found yours. Thanks. I have a 2002 BMW 745. -
