Code Scan / Reset Tools

Peake Research Code Scan / Reset Tools
What is the Check Engine light trying to tell me? The BMW Check-Engine light can mean any number of things.
Sometimes it's alerting you to the real need for a repair, but most often it is merely indicating one of the many, simple (top off your coolant, loose gas cap or oil cap) type problems. Imagine paying a hundred dollars to a repair shop to tighten your radiator cap and reset the Check Engine light. Without the R5/FCX, you're stuck staring at your Check Engine light until you see the mechanic who can reset it. Routine Maintenance Lights - As an added benefit, the R5/FCX includes the ability to reset the oil service and inspection, routine maintenance lights. Considering that an oil service for a BMW can sometimes equal the price of the R5/FCX, this feature alone is worth the price of the R5/FCX. Manual and Code book included.
No more driving around with those lights on! Do you change your own oil or go to a fast lube? If you do, then the R5 reset tool is made just for you. The R5 gives you the freedom to reset your own Oil service/Inspection lights, allowing you more choices in service. Super easy to use, takes 15 to 20 seconds, and you don't even have to get your hands dirty! Includes Instructions.

To select the right tool, please be sure to view the Peake Research Application Guide.

It's also highly recommended that you check out our Pelican Technical Article on Reading BMW Fuel Injection Fault Codes.

Known Incompatibilities for the R5-FCX-3 Code Scan and Reset Tool:
  • 325/e/es (1987), M3 (1988-91)
  • 528 Euro-spec (1988) (528e is compatible), 535i/is (1987-88), M5 (1988)
  • 635/M6 all (1987)
  • 735 all (1987)
Model year 2000 ONLY: There was a change made in diagnostic systems for most BMW models in 2000 and one must verify if vehicle is equipped with the 20-pin diagnostics plug in the engine bay for these cars. This information CANNOT be deciphered by VIN. The exception is:

X5 models 2000-2001 = need to verify if vehicle is equipped with the 20-pin diagnostics plug in the engine bay.

All models - if equipped with plug in the engine bay use FCX-3 or R5B. If not equipped, use FCX-3-16.

NOTE: For Vehicles equipped with BMW iDrive Systems this tool scans and resets Engine Management Codes ONLY - Will NOT reset the Service Indicator or Oil Change Lights (these are reset manually).

NOTE: Peake Research scan tools are incapable of reading ABS/DSC module codes.
Peake Research SRS Reset Tool
The BMW airbag light is something that every installer, mechanic, racer and tuner will eventually face. The removal of interior components such as the seat, steering wheel, ECUs, parts of the wiring harness, etc... will cause the airbag light to come on. And it stays on, until a tool is used to reset it. Until now, the only solutions were a trip to the dealer, which will always costs you time and money, or the purchase of a very costly scan and reset tool. With The low cost, R5/SRS, you simply read the code, look up the code in our code book, make sure you know exactly why the airbag light is on, fix the problem, then reset it. That simple.

To select the right tool, please be sure to view the Peake Research Application Guide.

Application:
R5/SRS: 1994-2000*
R5/SRS-16: 2001-2003 (plus many 2004 models)

* Mechanics; The compatibility range of the R5/SRS can be extended past 2000, to 2003/4, by simply adding the AB03 adaptor. In other words, the R5/SRS combined with the AB03 adaptor will give you a compatibility range of 1994 - 2003/4, noting the exceptions below.

Known Incompatibilities:
  • The SRS/Airbag tool compatibility falls off sharply after 2003. Flagship BMWs, such as the 7 series, are the least likely to be compatible.
  • The SRS/Airbag tool is not compatible with any BMW built before 1994.

The Terminator is a superior Logic probe combining the features of a DMM and oscilloscope but simplifying the display for technicians that want to find the pulse but don't need to see the trace. Particularly useful for tracing CAN signals.

Air/Fuel Ratio Meters

The LM-2 combines an air/fuel ratio meter, a full-function 32-channel datalogger, and powerful software to deliver a complete tuning workshop for less than the cost of one dyno day. Whether you have a piggy-back fuel controller, race carb, aftermarket ECU, ODB-II tuning software, or a flash/chip programmer, an LM-2 is the tool you need to dial in maximum HP. The meter's digital signal processing technology provides data on exactly how rich or lean an engine is running at any load. The LM-2's self-calibrating circuitry also compensates for changes in temperature, altitude, and sensor condition.
  • Patented Direct Digital Wideband Technology
  • Wideband O2 Compatible with ALL fuel types
  • Single or Dual Channel Version Available
  • OBD-II Scan tool- read/clear DTCs and log up to 16 channels of CAN OBD-II Data
  • Log directly to SD card (included)
  • Playback log data on screen and/or with powerful LogWorks software (included)
  • Large high-contrast graphics LCD
  • Built-in RPM converter (direct frequency or with optional inductive clamp)
  • 4 fully-differential analog inputs
  • 2 configurable linear analog outputs
  • Positive lock connectors for all connections
  • Innovate MTS serial IN and OUT
  • USB connection to your PC
The LM-2 also features two fully programmable linear analog outputs to connect to analog gauges, dyno computers, ECUs, piggyback controllers, and other devices with analog inputs. Analog output 1 comes setup from the factory ready for narrowband simulation; analog output 2 is configured as 0 volt = 7.35 AFR and 5 volts = 22.39 AFR. With the provided LM Programmer software these analog outputs may also be configured by the user.

The LM-2 Kit (Single Wideband O2) includes the LM-2 meter, Bosch wide-band oxygen sensor, 10 ft sensor cable, cigarette-lighter power adapter, analog in/out cable, ODB-II/CAN interface cable, SD memory card, USB cable for PC connection, weld-in bung and plug, LogWorks software CD, and quick-start guide. Carrying Case also included!
