Don’t think there are any that can.
Where are you?

I have the same problem. Is there anyone in the North West near Blackpool who could help me?

You could head to Newton-Le-Willows and pay a fortune for it to be done by a self-professed Zed-God. :roll:

Or if you had an old laptop, preferably running Windows 8, you could spend £19.95 for the OBD connector and lead with the Scanner 1.4 software provided too. Actually resetting the Transport Mode takes about 2 minutes once it's all plugged in.

Then you can recoup your costs by helping others in return for a couple of quid.

As a bonus, you get a really good tool for finding error codes and for doing coding. :thumbsup:

Not a million miles from Attleborough: Bishop's Stortford. I'm up and down to Snetterton and Hethel a few times a year but nothing scheduled until September.
Are there some fuses I should check first?

Nope it’s just a setting within the HVAC module

I make a point of offering our South Wales Zedshed Group of enthusiasts the option of deleting Transport Mode when they visit the Zedshed Cymru shed (My home garage equipped with a car lift) 5 minute operation using my Launch Tablet scanner, it deletes Transport Mode from all the modules on the car that have Transport Mode embedded in them. BMW Scanner 1.4 on a Laptop can reset Transport Mode but cannot delete it like the Launch can. BMW Scanner is very cheap on ebay, all you need is a windows Laptop. It will read all modules on the car and can do some programming. Cheap and easy to install and operate far less complicated than BMW INPA and its sister programmes.
