can I check my "OBD II" bmw the "OBD I" way (pumping the gas), or I must have the tool? And any suggestions where I could find a really good deal on one? Average price seems to be around $200.

You should be able to pull your OBDII codes with the free tool they have at autozone, or kragen, or whatever parts store is in your area.

2002 BMW 530i
1997 Ford Mustang GT
1995 Honda VFR 750 (For Sale)
1964.5 Ford Mustang

Yea you can pull the codes... but you cant do it more than once... and you cant reset your oil service light... nor can you reset your check engine light...

Just a thought,

Les

I recently bought Actron CP9125 for $55 (including shipping) on ebay.
Works great.
Go to ebay, search for "CP9125". Generally, they average around $60-$80.
Once in a while you will see one that is priced below that range.

Or, if you want to learn more about the product, go to actron.com and look for CP9125 or any other product.

Good Luck

Yeah, they have it for $100 new. So it works just fine for your BMW?
