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.

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.

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.

AutoEnginuity Complete OBDII Diagnostic Tool
AutoEnginuity's Scan Tool is a professional PC, Pocket PC, and Palm diagnostics scan tool for all OBDII (OBD2) and EOBD IV+ compliant vehicles. AutoEnginuity's Scan Tool allows you to read the vehicle's diagnostic trouble codes, live vehicle sensors (including wide-band O2 sensors), actuate bi-directional controls, reset adaptations, and view inspection/maintenance system test results to quickly determine what service the vehicle requires.

The ScanTool was designed to be as easy to learn as it is powerful. It comes with an automated installation process, a complete and comprehensive User's Guide, and an easy-to-use interface. You won't have to spend valuable time learning another piece of software; you can focus on what's important - servicing the vehicle.

What AutoEnginuity's ScanTool can do:

  • Save, print, read and clear Stored and Pending P, U, B, and C Trouble Codes. Supporting P0 - P9 generic and manufacturer specific codes (including the new lettered codes (e.g., P06A0)
  • The largest manufacturer specific trouble code library of all PC/PDA-based scan tools (30,000+)
  • Read and clear Freeze Frame data
  • View live vehicle sensors in a meter, graph, or grid format
  • View oxygen sensor live data and test results
  • View all 11 Inspection/Maintenance systems and Mode 6 data
  • Unlimited logging of live vehicle sensors in TXT, XML, or CSV (1ms logging accuracy)
  • Playback your data logs for offline analysis
  • Run and query specific component and system tests. Support for generic and enhanced bi-directional tests
  • View generic and manufacturer enhanced data on the same tool
  • English or Metric (SI) units of measure supported
  • Configure your sensors' ranges, scaling value, audible alert triggers, units, and sampling rate
  • Savable configurations. Set up the interface to suit your preferences and save it so you never have to do it again
  • Supports 1996 and newer passenger vehicles, whether it be domestic, Asian, or European. SAE interfaces: J1850 (PWM and VPM), ISO-9141-2, ISO-14230 [KWP2000], and CAN [11bit and 29bit]
  • Also resets the Service indicator Lights on models from 2001 on.

Something ScanTool offers that the others don't:

  • True Plug-n-Play USB 2.0 interface1
  • Factory scan tool options available (not included in base kit) All generic scan tools can only access the powertrain, no matter what SAE Modes (J1979/J2190) they use for communication. With our expansions, you can access dozens of systems (ABS, transmission, GEM, SRS/Airbags, Instrument Cluster, etc.) generic scan tools can't even see. This gives you access to thousands of sensors and dozens of bi-directional controls/system tests. Click here for complete enhanced option details.
  • Optional expansions allowing you to communicate with non-OBD-II vehicles like the Powerstroke, Duramax, and Cummins diesels.
  • Bi-directional support. You have the ability to initiate system and component tests2
  • Mode 6 support. If a system test fails, now you can see the results from the failing component; not just the system. Our Mode 6 data is fully translated so you don't have to waste hours looking the scale and definitions.2
  • Mode 9 support. Full ECM information including CAL, CVN, and VIN reporting
  • Support for CAN and even the CAN 6x Mode3
  • Support for the new extended sensor list (233 sensors--supporting the SAE J1979 May 2007 additions)
  • Includes SpeedTracer - a performance analysis software for your PC or PDA!
  • ALL the OBD-II vehicle interfaces in a single cable, rugged case. This is a savings of hundreds of dollars over the competitors' units
