OBDII to BMW 20-pin connector adapter?
I have a 99 M3, and I have a generic OBDII code reader (gets much more use on my Tahoe...). I hooked it up to the M3 today (to the connector near the pedals) to check an SRS light that came on, but I can only access codes and information related to the engine or transmission.
I did some checking, and the SRS code/reset tool that Peake sells connects to the 20-pin underhood connector (and apparently, for the cars with both the OBDII connector under the dash and the 20-pin underhood connector, you must use their tool with the 20-pin underhood connector to access the SRS codes or to reset the light).
Some vendors sell a OBDII connector-to-20-pin underhood connector adapter, which would allow me to hook the code reader I have to the underhood connector. Does anyone know if this will let me use my code reader tool to check the SRS codes?

The 20-pin port will not give you any more pins than at the dash with a generic reader.
You need something that is designed for the 20-pin connectors to read them. BMW has some additional wires on other pins for the ODBII connector that provide more to under the dash, and of course have more pins on the 20-pin connector.
As a side note, make sure that the cap is on for the 20pin port, as removing it disabled the ODBII port in the car.
Basically you need the SRS tool or a knockoff or official BMW reader. As with most carmakers, they use proprietary systems and put as little as possible on the ODBII channels.
