Finally you can see everything the dealer can!
Sean, read & reset your check engine, airbag and fault codes without costly dealer visits!
A true "game changing" Diagnostic Cable, the Bavarian Technic gives you the power of a GT1/OPS/INPA system for a fraction of the price. Functions include reading/deleting extended codes, check engine light reset, tuner detection codes, and airbag light reset/codes. Also performs high speed data logging of over 600 parameters including knock retard, adaptation values, O2 sensors, boost targets, etc.
Bavarian Technic Diagnostic cable works with Engine, Airbag, SRS, ABS, DSC, Fuel Pump, Transmission, OEM BMW Alarm, Central electronics, Heating & A/C, and all other vehicle modules.
Plugs directly into your factory OBDII (OBD2) diagnostic port under your dash on the drivers side.
The Bavarian Technic cable communicates with your car just like the factory diagnostic tool does and can access all of the systems in the car.
Our hardware solution consists of an adapter cable which has one end that plugs into the USB port of a laptop or desktop computer and another end that plugs into the OBDII diagnostic scanner port of your car. Since our hardware supports USB it is compatible with most computers.

What cable should I get?
1. Basic cable allows access of 1 VIN
2. Enthusiast cable allows access of up to 3 VINs
3. Professional version allows scanning of an unlimited number of cars.
The Enthusiast and Professional cables come with cases. The Basic cable does not.
The Basic cable can be used on a single BMW or Mini vehicle only and does not include a storage case. This option cannot be expanded to support more than one car or upgraded to Enthusiast or Professional. As with all of our kits, the software and software updates are included.
How does it work?
Our OBD product is a hardware and software tool that plugs into your Windows PC's USB port. Once plugged into the car, the tool is capable of communicating with the different system control units in the car.
Can it really help me turn off my airbag light?
Yes! The tool can show you why it is on in the first place so you can correct the problem and turn the light off.
How is your product different from the OBD2 products available?
Our product communicates with your car just like the factory tool does and can access all of the systems in the car. OBD2 was created for emissions-related problems and only covers a limited subset of your car's engine.
