Scan/Reset Tool for BMWs 1987-2007
Available for most BMWs built between 1987-2007
Covers Diesel Models
Displays all BMW-factory engine fault codes; allowing you to do your own engine diagnostic! A big step up from "generic" code readers.
Resets the Engine light (AKA "Check Engine" or "Service Engine Soon")
Resets the Oilservice and Inspection lights, and service mileage (does not reset CBS.)
Very easy to use
Includes instruction manual and code chart
Includes protective storage case.
If you answer "yes" to any of these questions, you need an R5/FCX-3!
Has your BMW ever stalled, been slow to start, idled poorly or hesitated during acceleration? Has the Engine light (also known as the "Check Engine" or "Service Engine Soon" light) come on when everything seemed fine? Have you ever received a costly repair bill and wondered if the repairs and charges were legitimate?
Without the R5/FCX-3 scan-reset tool from Peake Research, you may be forced into accepting what the repair/service center tells you and charges you. Wouldn't it be great to know exactly what's wrong before you bring your BMW in for a repair? Or, better yet, if you're handy with tools you can avoid the repair shop altogether- run your own diagnostic and fix the problem yourself! That is, if your car even needs a repair. Read on..
What is the Engine light trying to tell me?
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.
Are you starting to see that the R5/FCX-3 makes great financial sense? There's more..
Routine Maintenance Lights
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 87-06 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. (On some late models with the i-drive/nav-screen and CBS maintenance light system, the R5/FCX3 while fully able to read codes and reset the Service Engine Soon light, is unable to reset CBS maintenance indicators)

- Displays all SRS fault codes, tells you what's wrong.

Indispensable for Mechanics, Racers, Installers, Tuners!
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, Peake Research 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.
Examples of common situations that cause the airbag/SRS light:
- A loose connector
- Alarm Installation
- Stereo Installation
- Seat removal
- Seat upgrade
- Seat belt replacement
- Steering Wheel removal
- Steering Wheel upgrade
- Fuse Removal
- A corroded connector
- Unplugged Wiring harness
- Body Work
- Engine compartment work
Has your airbag (SRS) light ever come on unexpectedly? Have you been driving around ignoring the SRS light? Do you know exactly why your SRS light came on (i.e. you triggered it while installing an alarm/stereo/steering wheel/seat) but you have no way to reset it? Are you tired of relying on someone else to get the SRS light reset? Yes? Then the R5/SRS was made for you!
Wouldn't it be great to have a good idea of what's wrong before you go in for a repair? Or, better yet, if it's a minor problem, like when racers swap in a racing seat and trigger the airbag light, you can scan it, fix it, and reset it yourself!
What is the SRS light trying to tell me?
The BMW SRS light can mean any number of things from serious to minor. Sometimes it's alerting you to the real need for a repair of a broken part, but sometimes it is merely indicating that a circuit critical to proper SRS operation was temporarily disconnected (i.e. while you were installing a stereo, alarm, racing seat or steering wheel). Without the R5/SRS, it's anyone's guess. You're stuck staring at your SRS light light until you have time to go pay someone to diagnose and reset it.
