Can't go wrong with PEAKE!

Manufactured specifically for BMWs, Peake scan/reset tools make servicing your BMW cheaper and easier than ever.

The tool easily connects to your diagnostic port in the engine bay and allows you to read any codes for a check engine light as well reset your oil service and inspection light with the push of a button.

This tool is a must for the first time do-it-yourself mechanic and to complete any tool box.

Click HERE to order or for more information.


Please let us know if you have any questions! Feel free to shoot me a PM or email.

Best,
Joe

If only there was some way to type in a phrase, like "reset oil lights", and have the forum show all the thousands of threads that answer this question..... wow. That would be so cool! Someone should come up with something that does that!

To answer the question, yes, you can. I just did it about a week ago. It took less than 5 minutes.

Do you think bimmerfest sponsors survive because of threads like this? I mean, how would ESCJoe have given his sales pitch if the search button would have been used? Just a thought...
