Welcome to Bimmerfest! Sorry, I missed your posting earlier.

Those are codes from (most likely) a Peake code reader. They aren't the same codes as used by BMW, but if you Google "Peake BMW codes" you can probably find out what they mean more specifically.

Here is a website that cross references BMW trouble codes. I use a basic OBD II reader from Harbor Freight that works fine. I Save myself $100 an hour or so just to check and delete codes. Also got an adapter for the round pin hook up under the hood. Haven't needed that one yet.
