With the Schwaben BMW Professional Scan Tool, you have the power of a dedicated shop right in your hand to code, read faults, diagnose, and customize!
Whenever you replace the SMG pump on an E46 M3, you will need to bleed the pump. In order to do this, it must be activated, and our Schwaben scan tool works perfectly for this. We are performing this on our 2003 E46 M3, and the procedure will be the same or very similar on most BMW models.
1: Switch the ignition on (do not start engine) and plug the scanner into the OBDII port
Anytime the battery is replaced on your newer BMW, you must register it using a scan tool. This will only work, however, with an identical battery to the factory equipped battery being uninstalled. The battery will not register if you change from Lead Acid to AMG. Using an identical battery to factory equipment, this will tell the vehicle to recognize the type and condition of the battery, which will extend battery life. We are performing this on our 2015 F30 335i, and the procedure will be the same or very similar on most BMW models.
