You might try replacing your camshaft position sensor, it shouldn't be too expensive, nor difficult.

Probably similar location to my old 6er.

Sorry, this was for crankshaft, not camshaft.

THANK YOU
CPS is an easy job and a typical failure at your cars age. NIKE (just do it)

By code 0103 I guess you mean P0103? That is a MAF (Mass Air Flow) sensor error. Did you change your air filter lately? Maybe you yanked on it? Check the connection to the MAF (sensor right next to the air filter box) and you may want to consider getting some MAF cleaner from the local auto parts store. A new MAF is very expensive compared to the cleaner. Takes 5 minutes. Two hex screws, pull it out, spray and replace.

As far as the 001 code, I'm not sure what you mean. P0001? I couldn't find that code for our cars.
