: 740il won't start

05-20-2008, 06:06 PM
O.K. here is the deal. I just got the car 1 week ago. Service engine soon light comes on. I take it to autozone and have the codes read. It comes up p1161 and p1159-(pending). Anyways I put 20.00 in fuel in it and so I ask the the person at autozone to reset the code and she says no. Another guy there with a 740i says to disconnect the battery. I do this BUT I remove the POSITIVE cable only the first time and got a small spark when removing and replacing the cable. I read this is a no-no. So I try and start the car and it will not remain running. I am very frustrated. What could be wrong? What can I do? PLEASE help.
