USA 2005 BMW M62: My "Service Engine Soon" light came on the other day. It's gone off once or twice but back on now. No noticeable difference at all in the running of the truck, running perfect except light is on. What kind of tool do I need to pull the code in order to troubleshoot?

If it is basic engine related you can most likely run down to NAPA/OReilly/PEP Boys... etc and borrow their code reader to pull and reset the code.

T4/Testbook (LR Dealer), AllComms (RSW Solutions), Faultmate... there are a couple more.
Or just any obd2 scanner you can literally get anywhere for next to nothing. Any obd2 scanner will pull/clear engine codes. No sense in spending several hundred when a $20 dollar scanner will work... Unless ofcourse you're wanting to pull ABS codes, suspension codes, range rover specific things otherwise something basic will work fine.

Thx guys, I'll try the NAPA/Autozone then maybe look for a cheap ODB2 scanner for future use. Truck has been running so good really curious to see what this is.

Light has gone out on it's own, for now. Think I am just going to buy an inexpensive tool, as I've also got a Check Engine light on my wife's E320 that is on. Anybody seen or used this:

Are these added functions worth it? Or should I just get a cheap $20-$80 scanner?

This just happened to me. I was topping up getting ready for a trip...and over topped so the fuel overflowed. Code P0443 came up on the OBD with the service engine soon light. Cleared the code using the obd tester and the problem was solved.

Learned from the Rave that the car automatically checks the tank for leaks and disables the evap valve if it detects a leak. Overflowing at the cap obviously fooled the detection and tripped the code.

Moral...don't top these things too far.

my light was coming on and going off several times each time I drove the truck, now the light has remained off for the last several days not coming on at all.
