Inspection Service reset for older models (1999 - 2000) ALTERNATE METHOD

Hi,

Along with my 01 330, I have a 99 328i and I was trying to reset the Inspection Service counter since I just changed my oil.

Well after spending way too long trying to jump pins 7 and 19 as mentioned in this DIY below, with no success, I found another way around it.
This is the DIY I tried to follow with no success:

A. Model Year 1999 to Mid-2000: You should have the older round 20-pin DLC connector under your hood behind the battery terminal, you need to use a small length of wire to connect (short) pins 7 and 19 for 3-5 seconds with the ignition key in position 1 (Accessory).
I searched all over this forum for an answer and finally figured it out.
Here's the solution, for those that have not yet figured it out.

Instead of trying to jump pin 7 (service indicator) with pin 19 (Ground)...... do this:

Jump a wire from Pin 7 and hold the other end of the wire to a ground on the car, like a bolt in the engine bay like the strut tower bolt.

Hold for 10-15 seconds while the key is in position 2.

There you go! All set!

This works way better than the 2 pin method.

Hope this helps someone out in the future.
