Wink 06 325i how to read code for check engine light

Hello Guys, This is my brother in law first bimmer and he does not have any idea about cars, it is funny that he got the first bimmer than me ja,ja,ja well I am trying to help him, I always work on my old cars, like mustang 5.0 1988, but this new modern car is too much computer, so if any one could tell me if my OBDII will read a bimmer code ? I do not think so but does not hurt to ask, if not how can I find out what is wrong on the car ? My brother in law told me that there is a a red figure like a pumping handle and an other jar w/drop, when I took the car for a ride nothing came on only the engine light was on all the time.
Please I will apreciate any help, there is only 50 K KM on the car, He bought it in Jan used, should be under warranty ? do you have to pay for the diagnostic anyway ? please anyone who has bimmer long time and they know how this warranty for used car works please let me know.

i had a 2005 325xi and used this tool all the time it works great i have just bought a 2006 325xi and will be buying one. anyway to have a dealer hook up to the obd II port it will cost you 60 to 80 $$ this tool will do what you need and you can reset your service oil light so 2 times you use it it will pay for it self hope this helps


click on tools
then scan reset tools
