Small leak SES light

About a month ago I got an SRS light and ran the code. It was P0456 or small leak in the fuel vapor system. Cleared the fault about 3 times and finally took it to a BMW dealer. They did the same as I did and did not charge me. SES light came back on and I took it to a third party mechanic and they discovered that my DME needed updating. This will apparently fix the false SES. Will let you know if it comes back.

Interesting. What year is your X3 and how many miles on it?

Interesting. The more common fix is getting a new gas cap.

Replaced the gas cap about 2 months ago, but below is the service bulletin...
Date: 2012-01-01 Bulletin #: SIB-12-01-11-B

Compenent: 091100 FUEL SYSTEM, OTHER:STORAGE:TANK ASSEMBLY

BMW: THE SERVICE ENGINE SOON LIGHT IS ON WHILE DRIVING. THIS IS A PROGRAMMING ISSUE. *RM UPDATED 1/4/12. *PE UPDATED 4/24/12. *PE

Hope this helps others. It cost me $140 at a third party specialist BMW place.
