    Cleared all the codes using OBD fusion and a generic ELM327 scanner. My engine light is gone but my ABS and brake system lights are still on? I checked for new codes and I only had one for the coolant sensor.

    So I couldn't find anywhere to get a copy of PA soft that didn't sketch me out a little bit, and the official website has been shut down for a few years. Is there a new tool that we use for the e46 or something?

    Hi all, 2002 E46 330ci SMG with 117k on it. Got the 3 lights on the dash (ABS/DSC/h-brake), so I try to scan the car to find out the issue: Hmm... strange... a generic OBD cannot read the car? Goes to a local garage to use his LAUNCH system... no connection. Visit BMW specialists (Prestige...
