BMW owners and technicians today are facing the urgent need to read and reset BMWs unique factory engine fault codes and lights. This requires a NON-OBDII tool, such as the low cost R5/FCX3 from Peake Research, which will read and reset factory dealer codes and reset BMWs unique dash lights, like the Oilservice – Inspection and engine lights.

Why is “NON-OBDII” so important? There is a huge difference between OBDII codes and the highly specific factory codes. The R5/FCX3 accesses BMWs vast array of factory diagnostic, analysis and repair codes enjoyed by BMW dealers, where OBDII tools and the misleadingly named Manufacturer Specific OBDII tools simply will not. Keep in mind, BMW did not go beyond the governments most narrow and basic legal requirement for OBDII code reading in their cars. Therefore OBDII code readers are of virtually no value outside the realm of smog testing. If your aim is to reset BMWs unique brand of dash lights, repair, pinpoint and analyze, there is no substitute for factory capable tools like the R5/FCX3 made by Peake Research Corporation.

Connect, Select & Go! Taking less than 30 seconds to use, the R5/FCX3 requires no batteries, no additional cables, no connectors, no laptop, no software to learn, no special interfaces or downloads. It can only be plugged into one spot, one way. It is truly fool proof – compares in ease with checking your oil, pumping your own gas, etc.

Affordable Priced similar to a dealers diagnostic fee
Compact Fits in your glove box
Reads the full range of BMW Proprietary factory engine codes specific to your car not misleading OBDII codes
Resets “Check Engine” and “Service Engine Soon”

Great Product for Aging Bimmer My 540i is 8+ years old and the “check engine” was coming on every couple of weeks. I had to drag the car to the shop and have them check/reset the error codes. Sometimes they’d have to keep it for a while to drive it around to see if the codes would return. One time they changed a camshaft position sensor due to an error code and problem returned. They replaced the new sensor with the old one and things have been intermittant ever since.Now when the “check engine” light comes on I…

Does what it’s supposed to well Works well enough, codes are easy enough to research and find out what they’re for. Well worth the savings from taking your bimmer to the dealership to read the codes for you.

Perfect for my e46! Told me what code was causing the ABS light trifecta on my e46 BMW. A quick replacement of the ABS sensor and I was in good shape! $80 for the codes to be read at the dealer? No way!
