Service Reset

Anyone know how to do the service reset for an 08? I found the following on-line, but it didn't work:

- Hit the start button twice but don't start the car
- Hold brake and hit the trip reset button
- Go through the options on the center stack until you get oil
- Reset

Never gave me the chance to flip through the center stack options...didn't work. Damn stealership wants $40 to reset it...I think not!

Try not holding on the brake? I never held my brake but I'm 6mt so who knows. Ignition on the "on" position and press down and hold the odo reset button for about 5-10 seconds, you should see the menu on the dash screen. Then use the dials on the stalk to flip through.

The detail from mikem's thread

Step 1
Insert key into slot
Step 2
Press start/stop button without depressing clutch/brake and wait for the service reminder to disappear.
Step 3
Immediately after service reminder goes out, press and hold the odometer reset. After 3 secs a warning triangle will appear, keep the odo. button pressed and after another 2-3 secs the Oil can will appear. I f you hold it too long (10 secs in total) you will overshoot the runway and some German writing will appear giving the software level/ can bus etc. of the car. Go back to the beginning and start again.
Step 4
You are now in the service menu, use the toggle switch on indicator stalk to scroll up/down through the various service items.
Step 5
When you have the item you want to reset showing, press the BC button on end of indicator stalk. Reset should now appear in the display. Press in and hold the BC button for 2-3 secs and a clock will start whirling around and hey presto, its done
Step 6
You can now either scroll up/down to select another item (as in step 4) or you can press the start/stop button to exit.
