Default BMW SRS Code reader

Have picked up a 93 325i and looking for code reader for the airbag system. It is not the Peake tool (I have one) the earlier cars require something different.

Please advise if anyone may have one to borrow or buy if you no longer need it...or even can help me understand what scan tool is required. thanks...

I still have the BMW "reader" and reset tool that worked for my old '91 325iX. You put it on the diagnostic socket and press a button. The codes then flash out on the SRS indicator light. I have a manual to decode the codes.

Bought it after the dealer was unable to read codes and wanted to charge me $1600 for a new ABS brain.

I'll dig it out tonight and send you more info.

I have INPA (older factory scan tool) set up on an old laptop with the big round diagnostic cable. Works great with the E46 which being a 99 is not able to be scanned 100% from the obd2 port. You’re welcome to come over and we’ll plug it in and see if it works. Only downside is I live not close at all.

"Made in West Germany"? Code reader from the cold war. That is awesome.
