BMW Service Reset Tools & Fault Code Readers for BMW 8 Series E31 (1991-1997)

Clear BMW chassis
Fault Code Readers and Diagnostic Scanners put the power of the dealership in your hands. The Check Engine or Service Engine Soon light means something! It's alerting you to a potential problem and a fault code has been stored in the car's internal diagnostic system. You can take the car to the dealer and have the code pulled for you (for a one-time fee) or you can buy one of these code readers and check the trouble code yourself (and any other code that may come up in the future). These diagnostic tools pay for themselves. They are a must for the DIYer or any mechanic. These tools can read and reset trouble codes and reset your maintenance interval settings. A separate tool can also be used to reset the SRS system (separate from the engine diagnostic system). Peake Reset Tools come with a booklet containing instructions and a list of codes.

For newer cars we also sell multi-function scan tools, gauges, and programmers. Reading and resetting Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTC) are some of the many functions that these handheld and dash-mounted accessories perform. These are the next generation of 'smart' programmers capable of loading new versions of engine software, recording and playback of data, and timing meters.

The BMW Service Engine Soon (aka Check Engine Light) has thousands of different meanings. Everything from low coolant messages, engine misfires, transmission temperatures, light bulb failures, brake pad replacement, and so much more. The sophisticated electronics are throughout the car. Isn't it time for a BMW scan tool that can keep up with all of your DIY needs? We think we've found the one - the DIY BMW diagnostic tool that trumps them all. The Schwaben BMW scan tool.

Not all diagnostic scan tools are the same. The cheap ones you find at catalog outlet stores are generic and give you generic information (sometimes not even that). BMW actually has very specialized diagnostic systems that they only share with dealers. The factory diagnostic tools require specialized programs on dedicated laptops that are a pain for the average DIYer to set up and use. The Schwaben BMW diagnostic tool is designed specifically for BMW and MINI. It's not generic and packs some serious features in its small case. We've used this in our service department and were very impressed with the depth of its capabilities. It has features that only the factory ISTA/INPA programs have. Below is a partial list of its prime features -

  • Works on BMW models from 1987-current*; Works on MINI models from 2002-current*
  • Compatible with global OBDII / EOBD standards
  • Reads and clears codes and turns off SES/CEL/MIL/DTC (BMW Powertrain codes, Chassis codes, Body codes, and CAN codes)
  • Special troubleshooting functions to walk you through codes (like the BMW Test Plan)
  • Check and activate electronic components like switches, relays, and actuators
  • Records live sensor data
  • Provides live data graphing
  • Merges graphs for easy and intuitive diagnosis
  • Displays freeze frame data
  • Create a custom data stream
  • Reads and resets most adaptations
  • Reads OBD Readiness
  • Does active tests on systems and components*
  • Performs special functions, coding, security access*
  • Code and program replacement control units
  • Supports all 10 OBDII test modes
  • Resets oil service light
  • Sets inspection 1, 2 service intervals (manual or automatic)
  • Sets inspection mileage
  • Deactivates and reactivates brake control system
  • Retracts calipers for brake pad replacement on newer models
  • Initializes the wear indicator if new pads installed
  • Diagnoses Electronic Parking Brake caliper functionality
  • Multilingual menu options and code definitions
  • Memory card for data backup and software update
  • Print feature
  • Large TFT color screen and menu-driven operations

*Certain functions may be limited due to the requirement of a special factory access code or tools. While versatile, this scan tool covers a wide range of BMW models and platforms and it cannot be a catch-all tool for every job. Some functions may not be available but will be reviewed in future updates.

Note: Microsoft PC required for updates. You will need to register your scan tool in order to receive update notices via e-mail.

Vehicles with 20 pin under hood connector will require the separate adapter for use. Click here for link.

BMW owners should have a great interest in the R5 FCX-III tool. The BMW's Check-Engine light can mean any number of things. Sometimes it's alerting you to the real need for a repair, but very often it is merely indicating one of the many, simple (top off your coolant) type problems. Tool resets the Check Engine, Service and Oil Change indicator dashboard lights. Easy to use and includes a booklet containing the fault code chart and instructions for use.

Will not work on the following vehicles: E30 M3, E28 M5, E24 M6, E30 325e, 2000 750iL. This unit plugs into the round port under the hood on cars up to 2000. You can use this on 2001 and later cars with the AB03 Adapter. See below.
