Peake / Loftek B800 scanner tool error codes need help code e10 and e11 on a 1998 e39

car 1998 e39 528i

scanner tool being used : loftek B800 (is this the same as the Peake tool)

I never had the airbag light on until one day i gave someone a ride in my car that was of bigger size. after dropping them off i noticed the SRS light was on!
I hear its very easy to damage the seat sensor!

I bought the tool and hooked it up to my OBDII connector. (also came with connector for under the hood?)

if i try to read the codes i get a E10 code

if i try to clear codes i get a E11 code

both codes say communication error.......

tried to recoonect and different combinations of key position.

In the book it came with it says that some bimmers have one of the wires in the odbII installed improperly???? how can i verify if this is this case???

do i need to, or can i clear this via the engine bay connector?

Is this the SRS tool of which you speak? What is the description of the code?

The round connector under the hood has more signals present. Use it. When BMW deleted the round connector, the signals were brought out to the OBDII connector.

Issue fixed!

I hooked the scanner upto the connector under the hood thus allowing me to read and reset codes.
