I just had a similar Active Tank Sensor replacement done after I had the Emissions/CEL light on for a bit in my 2010 x5, 35d. Same code as was reported here, 4D32.

They replaced the sensor first part of this week. So far, so good.

Is there a question in this thread?

Just wondering. If it is just to capture and document the two fault code, thumbs up.

No question. I was just posting that I had the same code and issue, as I was reading some other posts surrounding DEF issues and thought it worthwhile to note for others.

@kkratochvil @ard - no question here either - similar problem and codes:

a followup on 4D32...

My yellow emissions light came on and my 2010 335d (40K miles) and it spent Friday 12/7 - Wednesday 12/12 in the shop - at least they gave me a 2012 535i xdrive as a loaner. Here's the write up:

Tech performed short test with charger. Found 2 faults in DDE, 4B82 EGR and 4D32 Reducing Agent. Followed both test plans, reducing agent faults. Test plan states will occur in winter. Clear fault and drive vehicle to see if fault returns. EGR test plan - function test EGR, EGR sticking. Tech removed EGR and inspected. Found carbon build up in EGR valve. Needs to be replaced. Diag code received. Test drove and active tank sensor fault returned. Original test plan stated to replace active tank if fault returned. Ran test plan again and received diag code...."waited for parts"...When replacing tank, tech found pump submerged in fluid crystals. Tech drained fluid from system, replaced tank and pump. Refilled system, cleared faults, test drove.

Parts replaced: EGR Valve, SCR Container, Supply Module, Diesel Exhaust Fluid, 2 clamps.

So far so good.

Anyone have an idea of the cost of this had it been outside warranty?

Hi everyone!

I'm new to this forum but not to BMWs.

I just got a BMW dealer quote to replace the active urea tank.

$3300 for parts and labor!

Each trip also had miscellaneous clamps/bolts and replacement of the urea.

Same issue here in my '09 X5 (51,400 miles). CEL light came on two days after a factory scan. They ran multiple tests and got the DEF tank sensor to trip several times. Current quote is Parts $722/Labor $660. X5 is 1,400 miles out of warranty. SA is going to request BMW fix this in good faith. I was told if BMW covers entire cost, parts & labor will not be warranteed. Yes, no warranty (what a crock). However, if I cover 10% ($130), parts & labor would be covered for two years and unlimited mileage. That decision is a no brainer. My only concern is the fact that some members have experienced this issue repeatedly. Should I be concerned?

Hmmm

Methinks there is a warranty either way, but if the SA convinces you to pay $130 he gets n extra $130 for the dealership.

In the back office, where warranty claims are handled, BMWNA will NEVER see the paperwork that shows 90% them and 10% you....if BMW covers it, BMWNA give the dealer $xxx. Whaever else the dealer scams is their business.

My two cents...dont take my word for it.
