Peake R5/FCX3 - BMW Engine Code Tool 1987-2000
"Brand New in Box with Manufacturer's Warranty"
In Stock and Ready to Ship!

General Description:

BMW owners and technicians today are facing the urgent need to read and reset BMW’s unique “factory” engine fault codes and lights. This requires a NON-OBDII tool, such as the low cost R5/FCX3 from Peake Research, which will read and reset factory “dealer” codes and reset BMW’s unique dash lights, like the Oilservice - Inspection and engine lights.
Why is "NON-OBDII" so important?

There is a huge difference between OBDII codes and the highly specific “factory” codes. The R5/FCX3 accesses BMW’s vast array of “factory” diagnostic, analysis and repair codes enjoyed by BMW dealers, where OBDII tools and the misleadingly named “Manufacturer Specific OBDII” tools simply will not. Keep in mind, BMW did not go beyond the governments most narrow and basic legal requirement for OBDII code reading in their cars. Therefore OBDII code readers are of virtually no value outside the realm of smog testing.
If your aim is to reset BMW’s unique brand of dash lights, repair, pinpoint and analyze, there is no substitute for “factory” capable tools like the R5/FCX3 made by Peake Research Corporation.
A trusted 20-year reputation:
Since 1989, Peake Tools have been the industry-standard when it comes to electronic diagnostics and reset tools for BMWs. Peake Research’s professional quality tools are simply unsurpassed in value, reliability, ease of use and accuracy. Since 1992, if you open a leading BMW service manual, like Robert Bentley, Mitchell, Haynes, Chilton’s, you will see the tools of Peake Research pictured and recommended.
Connect, Select & Go!

Taking less than 30 seconds to use, the R5/FCX3 requires no batteries, no additional cables, no connectors, no laptop, no software to learn, no special interfaces or downloads. It can only be plugged into one spot, one way. It is truly fool proof - compares in ease with checking your oil, pumping your own gas, etc.
Ordering is easy:
There is an R5-FCX3 available for your year and model BMW, up to 2007. Or if you are a technician, choose the “universal” configuration (87 through 2007). Your order will include everything you need to read engine codes, reset the engine lights and the oilservice/inspection lights, as well as a full parts & labor Manufacturer's Warranty. Start enjoying the pinpoint accuracy of factory codes today, order your R5/FCX3 now!

Note 1:  In cars with dual connectors (under-dash + under-hood) the car’s under-dash plug has no reset connections! So you MUST use the “under-hood” tool.
(Example: All BMWs 1996 – 1999, All Z3s and all 740i’s regardless of year are “dual connector” cars. Also note that X5’s and many three series up to mid 2001 are also dual connector). Check the car before ordering.
