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)

  • Records live sensor data

*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.

Turner Motorsport Brake Bleeder Bottle with Check Valve - Simple Bleed
Turner Motorsport - Corporate Logo
Part#: BBMCV
In Stock
Free Shipping on orders $99 and up
This is the new evolution of our popular Brake Bleeder Bottle. The latest design features a one-way check valve inside the bottle that is operated when you pump the brakes. This is a more economical and simpler system than other "1 man bleeding" kits - no modification to your brake system and you only have to buy the one bottle. The newest bottles also include upgraded caps and fittings for a tighter seal.

The one-way check valve is extremely simple to use - attach the bottle and hose, open your bleed screw, and pump your brakes from the pedal. The check valve opens with each pump to let fluid and air out of the system and then seals tight when the pedal is released. The bottle uses a large magnet to conveniently stick to your brake disc while you run the hose to the caliper.

Works on just about all brake systems so no need to have specialized adapters or bleed screws.

Schwaben Coolant Refill/Air Purge Tool
Schwaben - Corporate Logo
Part#: 003466SCH01
In Stock
Free Shipping on orders $99 and up

When it comes to BMW's we all know the weak point is commonly in the cooling system, many models proving hard to bleed the air pockets out after the refresh. The coolant refill tool solves this problem, ensuring that you get an air pocket free fill. The entire task is as simple as draining the system like normal, reinstalling the drain plugs and hooking the tool up to your refill location. The reason this tool works so well is due to the venturi valve, it converts air pressure from the compressor to vacuum inside the cooling system, then with a twist of a valve sucks coolant right into the system using the vacuum pressure.  

This tool requires access to a standard air compressor with a minimum rating of 90 PSI (6.2 bar).  A convenient, though not required part to complete the job is a container large enough to hold the entire coolant mixture capacity for your vehicle.  This will dramatically reduce the risk of any unwanted air being drawn into the system.  This tool is designed to refill the cooling system after it has been drained.
