service light reset

I have a 99 E-320 that I bought new. I currently has 45,000 miles on it and I have always changed the oil myself but taken it back to the selling dealer for service when the indicator comes on. What they do since they don't change the oil is beyond me , but they don't charge much, just a pain to take it in. Since the car is seldom driven and the oil/filter changed once a year regardless of mileage I would also like to be able to reset the service light. Currently it is telling me that the car needs service in 13 days. Can anyone tell me hoe to reset the indicator?
I did a search but was unable to find anything specific to a 99' E class.

Service indicator resetting

I hope this can help.

Service indicator resetting
Refer to illustration 6.21 Note: After changing the engine oil, it's impor-tant to reset the service indicator so it can keep an accurate record of engine operating time/vehicle mileage.
21 Several buttons on the steering wheel
and instrument panel, as well as the display
on the instrument cluster* are used to reset
the service indicator (see illustration).
22 Begin the process by turning the ignition
key to the no. 1 (On) position.
23 Push the system selection buttons until
"Kilometer reading" appears on the multi¬
function display.
24 Push the dimmer knob ("R" button) three
times; you should then hear a beep and volt¬
age should read out on the multi-function dis¬
25 Turn the ignition key to the no. 2 (Run)
26 Push the forward/back scroll buttons
until "Service display" appears on the multi¬
function display.
27 Push the dimmer knob ("R" button) once;
"Oil type" should appear on the multi-function
display. Use the +/- buttons to select the oil
type that was added to the engine.
