Autel AP200 code scanner is great for BMW F10 5 series

When a Powertrain Control Module (PCM) is replaced on vehicles equipped with the Sentry Key™ Theft Deterrent System, it must be initialized to properly function with the anti-theft module. This is accomplished at a Chrysler Group Dealer by using the DRBIII® or StarSCAN™ Scan ToJol to enter a PIN number.

When the PIN number is not available from the vehicle owner or a Chrysler Group Scan Tool(s) is not available this can be accomplished by writing the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) into the PCM using an after-market scan tool with a "VIN Write Function".

More information is available from the scan tool manufacturer or the Equipment & Tool Institute.

NOTE: After performing this procedure with an after-market scan tool on vehicles equipped with Chrysler Group's Next Generation Controller (NGC),Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) “P0633 - SKIM SECRET KEY DATA NOT STORED IN PCM” will be set. This DTC will not effect vehicle or system performance and cannot be erased.
Initializing the PCM on these vehicles requires the use of a DaimlerChrysler scan tool (DRBIII®), J1962 MMC Cable, and ST22 PCMCIA Diagnostic Card.

Initializing the PCM on these vehicles requires the use of a DaimlerChrysler scan tool (DRBIII®), Multiplexer cable box, and the CH9043 Crossfire or CH9087 Sprinter PCMCIA card. This equipment is available for lease from DaimlerChrysler for short periods of time.
