Note 1: In cars with dual connectors (under-dash + under-hood) the car's under-dash plug has no reset connections! So you MUST use the "under-hood" tool. (Example: All BMWs 1996 - 1999, All Z3s and all 740i's regardless of year are "dual connector" cars. Also note that X5's and many three series up to mid 2001 are also dual connector). Check the car before ordering.
