  2. E89 Z4 (2009 - current)
    Hello guys! I own a 2015 BMW Z4 sDrive35i and currently have an issue with a hardtop. For some reason, it started to open up just a half (you can see the pictures). The last sound I hear before it stops - it unlocks the part above my head and I'm able to push it a bit upwards. However, even if...

  4. X5 E70 (2007 - 2013)
    I just acquired a 2008 X5 6cyl. I’m interested in getting a handheld scan tool that can not only read the codes but also update/clear/battery code. Any suggestions? I have looked at foxwell
  5. X3 E83 (2004 - 2010)
    My e83 has the light trifecta again-- The lights (4x4 etc) appear as soon as the engine is started, even if the car doesn't move. The word "BRAKE" is in red if that matters. I replaced the gear in the actuator motor at 70K miles, and am now at 148k. Trifecta Lights came back and I assumed...

    I just got an "Engine Oil Pressure! Stop carefully" message in my 2012 F30. I have been reading many threads with different situations showing different symptoms like lost of power, sudden stop, etc... which is not my case. The oil change was done recently (about 2-3 weeks ago) in a local BMW...
  7. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    Check engine light came on and tried to pull the code with a basic Actron scanner. Tried the OBDII port and the 20 pin underhood port with an adapter and got "Failure to Link" in both cases. Then I tried a Schwaben (Foxwell) NT510 BMW-specific scanner. Using the OBDII port I got "Not...

    I have heard there are BMW specific codes and generic p codes. Question is, does anyone know of a reasonably priced handheld scanner tool that can pull BMW specific codes. Any help would be appreciated.
  10. X3 E83 (2004 - 2010)
    Does anybody have experience with the Schwaben (Foxwell) Professional Scan Tool? The Q&A suggests that it can perform that Transfer Case adaptation we've been arguing about. It's also touted in the description that it can do the new battery registration (another task sparking much contention)...

    Would like to buy my own scanner to diagnose my e38. Which one do you recommend?
  15. E63 / E64 6 Series (2004 - 2010)
    I've been reading through the threads and looking for a good scanner. It sounds pretty unanamous that the INPA scanner is the way to go. I've found BMW Ediabas/Inpa that looks like it comes with software on Amazon for about $43. So I should be able to plug this in and read all the OBD and BMW...

  19. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    How useful is "freeze frame data" for an E39 diagnostic over a typical OBDII scanner? I use the $25 el cheapo scanner depicted in this thread when I have an SES light: - Cheapest CAN OBDII scanner on the net that reads DTCs, pending codes, & clears codes But, I often see mention of 'Freeze...
