BMW Creator C110 OBD2 code scanner report and review

I’ve had my BMW Creator C110 code reader for almost 2 years (v3.4 at that time) and it’s read. I rushed to the small hand-held diagnostic scanner because my Engine Management Light illuminated. Here follows a little walk-through of how I diagnosed my car this time around.

Purchase & Package:

US$48 from obdii365.com, 5 days delivery, well packed with a carry case and bag (including a CD, C110 scanner main unit, 1*pc USB cable and reference manual book)

Diagnosing & Troubleshooting:

Locate the OBD diagnostic socket plate on the driver side foot-well and removed this to expose the OBD Socket cover, removing this reveals the OBD socket itself, into which inserts the C110 OBD2 code scanner plug

The BMW C110 scanner reads a fault code:

I go back to DTC menu and press “Erase fault code”. The fault code is successfully erased. (Seemed if the problem was not so serious)

Well, the engine management light on the dash went off. First job was done smoothly.

All remains is to turn ignition OFF before plugging the BMW C110 OBD scan tool from vehicle.

I had upgraded it to the V3.8, current latest. The only pity is that the new version does not reset airbags, but overall, it is truly not bad an investment.  My fellow states old version v3.0 works good. I will contact my dealer to send me free v3.0 sw and have a test.

PS: What I found is that this little scanner comes with standard 16-pin connector, I then ordered a 20-pin to 16-pin diagnostic connector for further needs. I think the dealer offers the bundle dealer now
