My SES light keeps coming on. I need to figure out why. What is the best bang for the buck code reader? :dunno:

In your case, the R5/FCX-3-16. You should have a port right above your left knee (US spec car)

I have a Peake and an Actron. The Actron is much easier to read.

Does the actron decode to the same level as the Peake? For BMW specific codes?

The peake is pretty dang easy, what makes the actron easier?

What model actron too? In case folks want to look it up...

Thx!

also, the Peake allows you to reset your service indicator. Don't think that the Actron does that.

I use both the Peake for my bmw and the Actron 8145 (if I recall correctly) for my other cars.
