The BMW Engine light can mean any number of things. Sometimes it's
alerting you to the real need for a repair, so the Engine light
is something you should never ignore. But quite often it is merely
indicating one of the many, simple (top off your coolant, loose
gas cap or oil cap) type problems. Imagine paying a hundred dollars
to a repair shop to tighten your radiator cap and reset the Engine
light. Without the R5/FCX, you're stuck staring at your Engine
light until you're in the mood to see the mechanic who can reset

oilservice and inspection, routine maintenance lights, and the maintenance

Indispensable for Mechanics, Racers, Installers, Tuners!
The BMW airbag light is something that every installer, mechanic, racer and tuner will eventually face. The removal of interior components such as the seat, steering wheel, ECUs, parts of the wiring harness, etc... will cause the airbag light to come on. And it stays on, until a tool is used to reset it. Until now, the only solutions were a trip to the dealer, which will always costs you time and money, or the purchase of a very costly scan and reset tool. With The low cost, Peake Research R5/SRS, you simply read the code, look up the code in our code book, make sure you know exactly why the airbag light is on, fix the problem, then reset it. That simple.
Examples of common situations that cause the airbag/SRS light:
• A loose connector
• Alarm Installation
• Stereo Installation
• Seat removal
• Seat upgrade
• Seat belt replacement
• Steering Wheel removal
• Steering Wheel upgrade
• Fuse Removal
• A corroded connector
• Unplugged Wiring harness
• Body Work
• Engine compartment work
Has your airbag (SRS) light ever come on unexpectedly? Have you been driving around ignoring the SRS light? Do you know exactly why your SRS light came on (i.e. you triggered it while installing an alarm/stereo/steering wheel/seat) but you have no way to reset it? Are you tired of relying on someone else to get the SRS light reset? Yes? Then the R5/SRS was made for you!
Wouldn't it be great to have a good idea of what's wrong before you go in for a repair? Or, better yet, if it's a minor problem, like when racers swap in a racing seat and trigger the airbag light, you can scan it, fix it, and reset it yourself!
What is the SRS light trying to tell me?
The BMW SRS light can mean any number of things from serious to minor. Sometimes it's alerting you to the real need for a repair of a broken part, but sometimes it is merely indicating that a circuit critical to proper SRS operation was temporarily disconnected (i.e. while you were installing a stereo, alarm, racing seat or steering wheel). Without the R5/SRS, it's anyone's guess. You're stuck staring at your SRS light light until you have time to go pay someone to diagnose and reset it.

7. Read entire R5/SRS Owners Manual before use.
