Don’t waste your time poking around your car. Just take a look at the video below to see the location of the OBD2 port in your BMW 5 F10/F11/F18.
What is an OBD2 port?
Nowadays, cars are increasingly dependent on their software and have up to 80 built-in ECUs. Therefore, to find problems and errors in modern cars it is necessary to own a diagnostics tool.
Since 2004, all vehicles, and some from 1994 and later, are equipped with an OBD2 port. This OBD2 port allows you to connect an OBD2 scanner to your car in order to access hidden features and information!
However, the location of this port depends on the car model. Therefore, finding this port can be a bit difficult sometimes! The location of the OBD2 port in a BMW 5 F10/F11/F18 should be within the reach of the driver.
The Carly App and OBD2 adapter allow BMW owners to diagnose their car in a few steps. And without a trip to the workshop! Additionally, Carly supports multiple other functions for the BMW 5.
However, the Carly functions available for specific cars can vary due to differences in the built-in ECUs and the car’s software. Here you can check all the functions that are available for coding, diagnosing, and saving money on your BMW 5 F10/F11/F18!
