07 BMW 525 service engine light

The service engine soon" light on 2007 525i just came on. I can't seem to find the port to hook up the code reader to see what set off the service light. Any help please?

Found this elsewhere for BMW:

The vehicle's diagnostic connector (20-pin round connector) is always found in the engine compartment.

If the vehicle is fitted with a J1962 diagnostic connector (16-pin rectangular), this can usually be located in the driver's footwell behind a cover.

Very Helpful. Thanks. Now I just have to find out which kind of connection I have. I'll dig around for this myself, but if anybody has any insight I'd sure love to hear it.

Might have both. I'm not a Beemer guy, but the narrative that went with the info seemed to indicate the round plug was a proprietary plug for BMW scanners. The 16-pit rectangular plug would be standard OBD.

Great Bimmer forums...

While mine is an E36 & I use the 3-Series forums, here is a link for yours. It's the 5-Series.
2004-2010 (E60,E61)

I found so much valuable info there, it's amazing. A bunch of gearheads who have seen & fixed it all!

The info you're asking about is a no-brainer for those guys!
