How can I reset the Check Engine light on a BMW E30 1988 325?

A year ago, I changed the catalytic converter after a smog test failure. After, it passed with flying colors. Check engine light flashes in a sequence of %26quot;flash, flash, on%26quot; after using the ignition key method (this means it needs an oxygen sensor). I replaced the oxygen sensor; however, the check engine light continues to give the %26quot;replace oxygen sensor code.%26quot; Is there a way to reset the CE light without going to the dealer? I hear that if I disconnect the terminals of the battery for a lapse, it will re-learn its sensor values, and reset, is this true?How can I reset the Check Engine light on a BMW E30 1988 325?Get a code reader and reset tool from Peake Research. They sell them direct, or check online for other BMW specialist resellers who often offer them at a discount. It'll provide easier to read code reading than the %26quot;stomp test%26quot; method, and you can reset the lights, too.
