Does your car have the 16 pin socket under the dash @ drivers footwell this is the OBll socket, your car will have the 20pin connector under the bonnet
which you will need a specific code reader for. OBll code readers are for petrol 2001 onwards & Diesel 2004 onwards but might work on earlier models

Get a BMW specific one like mentioned in your other thread......generic OBDII scanners will not pick up BMW specific codes.....You are likely to have both the port in the drivers footwell and under the bonnet too
