Procedure

  1. Locate the OBD-II port under the dashboard. Driver side.
  2. Plug your BMW scanner.
  3. Turn on the ignition but do not start the engine.
  4. Allow the scanner to turn on.
  5. Select Scan. Go to Read Codes menu and write down the codes. Fix the problem described by these fault codes. 
  6. Go back and select the Clear Codes menu and select Yes.

ABS and DSC warning lights may come back on if the problem has not been fixed.
