A BMW scanner is a diagnostic tool used to read and clear fault codes from BMW vehicles.
It can also be used to perform other diagnostic tasks, such as resetting service lights
and activating various components. There are two main types of BMW scanners:
OBD-II scanners: These scanners are the most basic type and can only read and clear
generic OBD-II codes. They will not be able to access BMW-specific codes or perform other diagnostic tasks.
BMW-specific scanners: These scanners are designed specifically for BMW vehicles and can access all of
the vehicle’s systems. They can read and clear BMW-specific codes, perform advanced diagnostic tasks,
and even code certain features.Which type of scanner you need will depend on your needs.
If you just need to read and clear a check engine light, an OBD-II scanner will suffice.
However, if you need to do more advanced diagnostics or coding, you will need a BMW-specific scanner.
Here are some of the things you can do with a BMW scanner:
Read and clear fault codes
View live data from the vehicle’s sensors
Activate components, such as the fuel pump or cooling fans
Reset service lights
Code certain features, such as the automatic door locks
If you are considering buying a BMW scanner, there are a few things to keep in mind. First, make sure
that the scanner is compatible with your specific BMW model. Second, consider the features that you need.
If you only need to read and clear codes, a basic OBD-II scanner will do. However, if you need to do more
advanced diagnostics or coding, you will need a BMW-specific scanner. Finally, be sure to read reviews of
different scanners before you buy one.Carly for BMW: A smartphone app with an OBD-II adapter that offers
