My Ride: 316Ti Compact E46
I got this for u:
E46 service interval reset

Keep Button pressed for 5 seconds after key is switched on. Tap button of reset display.

Reset procedure for clusters with SIA IV using the reset mode (possible form 9/99 for E46, MY2001 E52).

Ignition key must be off.
Press and hold the trip odometer button in the instrument cluster (left button) and turn the ignition key to the first position.
Keep the button pressed for approx. 5 seconds until one of the following words appear in the display: "Oil Change" or "Inspection" with "Reset".
Release the reset button and press and hold again the "Reset "begins to flash.
While the display is flashing, press the left button briefly to reset the service interval. After the display has shown the new interval, the following will appear:
"End SIA".
The system can only be reset again after 2.5 gal (10 liters) of fuel have been consumed.

Grounding pin seven (7) of the diagnostic connector would reset the service lights. I found that grounding pin seven (7) for ~3 seconds applied to an oil service reset and that ~9 seconds applied to the inspection service reset.

I haven't try myself tbh
