Assemble Your Kit + Notes

Till a few years ago, I would have to take my car to the mechanic every time the Engine Management Light (EML) went on, which was a head ache as I never knew if the mechanic actually told the truth about what the fault was, or not! But a few times I realised he was making up things as he could not find the solution to the problem and just kept changing different parts hoping it will resolve the EML...what a waste of my time and money!

At first I used to use a BMW software called BMTechnic which was sold on a private basis, but that is no longer available, so instead I now use an Android App called Torque Pro (OBD 2 & Car) (which also has a lite version which is free of cost).

To connect this app to your Android Mobile / Tablet you will also need to buy a Mini Bluetooth Car Code Reader OBD2 to connect to your car diagnostics port that is located under the steering wheel, to the side (either left or right, depending on the car being left or right hand drive).

Once you have both these items, it takes about 1min to connect them up and get it all working. This app then allows you to look up Fault Codes on a database and also clear the EML light. Mind you, the database isn't that great, but you still can use the fault code and search on google for the solution yourself.
