The Peake tools usually go into the round port under the hood, but if your car doesn't have one (like my 01 X5), you'll need what's called an AB03 adapter that converts the round plug to an OBDII type of plug. I just made my own since I didn't want to spend like $80 for a cable. If you change your mind, let me know.
M5James, one last question, are you suggesting to get the FCX peake tool instead of the SRS one? Looking at the description of the FCX it talks about checking/resetting check engine and service engine lights but does not talk about the SRS light. Does the FCX enable also to check and clear the SRS light?
