Reset 'Service Engine Soon" Light on 2001 330ci

Hello,

I am new to this site and new to BMW's. On Monday I picked up 2001 330ci from my local dealer. The dealer stated they did a full inspection and charged the oil (replaced all the brakes and rotors as well). Anyway, I was driving to the store and the "Service Engine Soon" light comes on. I know everything has already been done so I just need to reset the light so it goes off.

I checked on line and followed the instructions for resetting the light for a 2001 525 posted by BMWTIPS.com, but it did not work.

Here is what I did:

With the odometer button depressed I turned the key to the #1 position. "Inspection" came up with Reset so I took my finger off the odometer button. I then pressed the odometer button again until "Reset" started flashing. I then pressed the odometer button again which I think reset the interval. I then turned the key off.

I guess I did something wrong because the "Service Engine Soon" light is still on. I tried the process again, but now the reset light will not flash, it just shows Oil Service and then goes to "END SIA".

Can someone help me out here, the light is making me crazy and I can't get back to the dealer for them to fix it anytime soon.

Thanks
