Rather than every peake tool owner calling him, you'd think there would be one central place where he could get news out to all of us. If the reader is giving false codes, then that means it is somewhat still under construction...it's got some bugs. No biggie- no cursing or blowing up. I bought mine last fall so it is already "wrong" in some respect. I think he needs to find a place to get info out to all his customers rather than just the ones who call. I love my Peake, but I wish I could upgrade its software as Peake irons out the bugs. That is what would take me from happy to VERY damn happy. Anyone feel as I do or am I seeing it wrong? Again, no stones being cast. I'm glad we have what we have.

Yes, some form of product registration upon purchase that would allow us to subscribe to email updates, news and possible upgrades with newer Peake products would be a great step towards ultimate customer service. What I don't understand is seems like this problem with inaccurate tables started just recently with the latest version of the FCX-III, the older FCX's never had this problem as far as I know so you'd think they would thouroughly test out their new products before selling, there arent that many BMW models to go through, they could just go to Bimmerforums or another site to advertise for volunteers/testers and offer discounts on their products to those who showed up as well as a free reading...

Is Dan a forum member or a supporting vendor? I think that might be a great first step. If he isn't one, become a supporting vendor and frequent this forum and others looking for opportunities to dispel rumors, false advice, or whatever. There are certainly other supporting vendors that all you have to do is "whistle" practically and they come to your aid post haste! Come on in, the water is fine and we don't (generally) bite-except Doug gets a little testy sometimes:cheers::haha2::haha2:

Hey SlussM5, I also have a new Peake showing table 1B. What I don't get is what did Dan say about the cause of the problem, did he say the Peake reader was misprogrammed? Did he ask you to send it back and exchange it for a different one or just put up with the false code? I mean it's not a big deal to me to ignore the 1B, I'm just trying to understand exactly what he said. Thanks!
All,
Dan informed me that the Reader is fine. It is giving correct codes. The problem lies with the manual for this case.

Dan's version of the manual had the 1b table with the corrected codes, but the printed manual had the 1b table with 6cyl codes. He did not state what caused this, but told me to use the table 18 codes.

I asked him if the next release of the mnaual will have the fixes, and he informed me that it would, along with typo fixes, etc. but left no indication of timing.

I don't know if he is a forum member, but I told him that I was, and that there was a thread about his product.

Just so everyone knows, I do not know him personally, I just took the time to call the customer service hotline instead of using the email.

There are many good ideas that you have with the email updates, etc. Maybe if we send him the ideas, along with what we like and dislike about his product, he will make the improvements.

He thanked me for letting him know about the error, and told me to let you all know of how to handle it. He also told me that he was going to look into the other codes, to see if there were any other tables that may have been impacted.

I don't know how we get him to be a preferred vendor of the board.

The one thing that I must say about Peake, is the customer service is AWESOME!!!! I was in such a hurry to order my reader last Friday, that I wanted it air frieght delivered on Monday. After my online order was placed, I received a phone call from Peake informing me that it would actually take longer with the express shipping because they are in San Jose, CA, and I live near Sacramento (about 90 mins away). They saved me the money, and the reader was delivered USPS, on Saturday!
Ditto.

I tell the same story- procrastinated on buying the reader, then got a code and next thing you know I am paying full price plus UPS red shipping.

I tell people to buy one before the light comes on...

They are also fantastic over the phone.


Regarding sponsorship- they are a pretty small outfit, and they don't have the volume you might think. Truth be told, what more would a sponsorship do for his bottom line?

I don't know...what does it do for any supporting vendors bottom line? Are you suggesting that a supporting vendor doesn't get any return for their investment? If that's the case I guess they just do it out of the goodness of their hearts.

Anyway, he can be a member for free and the free marketing advice he will get might be the best free marketing he will ever find.

And Doug, I meant you! I was just pulling your chain after your post a few back!

Now that the Peake reader issue has cleared, has anyone run into a code 50? I can't find a thing anywhere on the web that would help me understand what a Switch-chain grip is.

Didn't we determine that 50 in table 18 is a secondary air fault? and that Peake said table 1b should actually have the same list of faults as 18....

so Table 1b, code 50 = table 18, code 50

Thanks :)

d-
You're a good guy Doug and make me laugh! I wouldn't have said it if I didn't think that you would know I was just having fun. You're a big help on these forum and I can see you have tremendous experience.

As far as the chain grip thing goes, I too would like to know what the hell it is. I am not sure about the 1b=table 18 as I don't know sitting here what table 1b says. I had table OF codes 50,& 51 and secondary air seemed a lot more plausible than this chain grip error and a MLF interface malfunction. I think it is MFL anyway and it's for the steering wheel controls of which I have no problem I know of. If anyone can tell us what this chain grip thing is, I'd like to know myself. Nothing in the manual about it. I'm going to go out on a limb and say I think it is more likely your air pump which has no affect on driveability whatsoever. Reset and see how soon it comes back. I really think it is a minor issue and hopefully you will find that you just need to replace the vacuum hose as they get small cracks in them and will leak even though they look OK.

Code 50 on table 18 is not to do with secondary air faults;

50 Switch-chain grip

He (we) know this Richie, but thanks anyway. We are getting some conflicting info that table 1b is the same as table 18 for an M5 and table 1b says secondary air and table 18 says chain grip. You have to read back a few posts.:cheers:

Yeah - think I'm getting confused ouich

It was just that Ard said 'didn't we determine that 50 in table 18 is a secondary air fault?' so I thought I would try to add to the confusion yawnnnn

I think maybe his wording was wrong. Apparently Dan, the owner of Peake, said that there are a couple errors in the program and he said something to the effect that Table 1b, if indicated on the reader, might supercede what table 50 said. Who knows. I think if someone could tell us what the hell a chain grip is, then we might be able to determine whether it is even likely a real fault. I got codes earlier in the week on my 540i my 2000 codes 50 & 51.
For my car it came up table 0F , 50, 51, --. Table 0F says secondary air pump which makes 100% sense. On an M5, OP said they just got a code 50 on their M5. Dan was called and said it might be table 1B that was applicable in this case but that table 18 is generally always the tabke for an M5. We are trying to document the number of non-table18 faults anyone sees on an M5. We have two reports so far where a table came up first reading an M5 that were other tables. Don't feel bad, we are all a little confused and that is why Dan Peake joining the net might be a great addition for us and free market info for him. Still WHAY THE HELL IS A CHAIN GRIP?? Ferris....Anyone???

I'll save you guys the time - I've been googling "switch chain grip" for the last couple hours (unemployment has benefits when it comes to curiousity!) and have found nothing even remotely related to automotive.

Okay, you may have determined that earlier, but in my manual table 18 has 50 being a switch chain grip.

Also, I stated that Dan said the printed manual that I had received had the incorrect codes under table 1b. That's where the errors were. We did not get into how the printed manual got screwed up. We did discuss what the correct codes were, and that in what he was looking at, (I am not sure if it was printed, or electronic, my guess electronic) the codes that correspond to the printed manual table 18 should have been listed under table 1b.

Keep in mind that my reader is the R5/FCX3 nd other readers that I have seen referenced in the board were R5FCXII, which may be adding to the confusion.

I will give you a copy paste of the proper codes for the M5 using a Peake reader model R5/FCX3:

Having just posted the correct codes as provided to me by Mr Peake. I am still in a quandry of what the heck a Switch chain grip is!?!?!?

I am beginning to agree with Doug and BMW X2 about the S&M connection. I am beginning to wonder if I am a masochist at heart. My car is full of leather, and it is beginning to become a pain to diagnose....
