Is your check engine light on?
The BMW Engine light can mean any number of things. Sometimes it's alerting you to the real need for a repair, so the Engine light is something you should never ignore. But quite often it is merely indicating one of the many, simple (topped 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 Engine light. Without the R5/FCX-3, you're stuck staring at your Engine light until you're in the mood to see the mechanic who can reset it.

As an added benefit, the R5/FCX-3 includes the ability to reset the oilservice and inspection, routine maintenance lights, and the maintenance mileage countdown indicator on most 87-04 models. Considering that an oilservice for a BMW can sometimes equal the price of the R5/FCX-3, this feature alone is worth the price of the R5/FCX-3. To see if your BMW is compatible with the R5-FCX-3 Scan Tools, please see the Peake Research Application Guide. and known compatibility issues guide
