A scanner can reset any light on the dash, if the problem has been fixed. A code reader will reset the engine light, again if the problem is fixed.

My wife's Honda CR-V has the "Check Engine" light come on every 7,500 miles telling you to get the oil changed. (It has no way of telling if it's been done or not.)

There are instructions in the Owner's Manual on how to reset it yourself...

Will diconnecting the negetive battery post to reset check engine light cause damage to my 2006 bmw 750li

No it wont cause any dammage, all that will happen is the system will reset, although not knowing the circumstances for the reason of the engine managment light being on may not possibly reset it and turn it off, unless what ever caused it has been repaired, most of the time, to reset the engine managment light you will have to get an OBD tool to do this.
hope this helps

How to reset inspection light on 2000 bmw 323

You need a tool that plugs in to the computer connector under the dash above your left foot. The most popular brand is Peake, but there are several brands that will work. This tool will reset the oil change light, the inspection light, and the check engine light, and will read out engine control system error codes.

1998 bmw 328i how do I reset check engine light

Stop by AUTOZONE-type store and they usually have a Scanner Tool to download the codes and reset the check engine light that you can use for FREE. It came on for a reason though. See what codes you get and go from there.
Good Luck

You can't use a tool to pull codes from an '87 BMW 325(e). You have the 2.7 liter and your DME, or computer is a Motronic. If you had a 325i, then a tool could read the codes because the computer was upgraded that year to a Motronic 1.1 system with a round plug in under the screw cap on the driver's side under the hood. The only tool you can buy is the one for resetting the service interval light and resetting the oil change light. To answer your question about going about finding your driveability problem would be to get a BMW Bentley Manual. This manual shows you how to use a standard voltmeter to check everything from your computer plug in. Your computer is located above the glovebox.

Good Luck,
