29E1 - mixture control 2
2A87 - vanos exhaust
2A82 - vanos intake
29CD - misfire cylinder 1
29D1 - misfire cylinder 5
29CC - misfire multiple cylinders
2A98 - crankshaft inlet, camshaft correlation
2DEB - power mgmt, on board power supply
2AD8 - DME EAC sensor, monitoring
93D2 - telltale lamp for front passenger airbag deactivation
A8AA - dipped beam left faulty
A8AB - dipped beam right faulty

Checked battery voltage - 12.7 engine off and 13.9 with engine running.

Try cleaning your Vanos solenoids.

Don't do anything except clear the codes. Wait for the light to come back on. Check codes again. Post those codes. Half of the codes you posted will have disappeared and we can advise you based on the 'real' problem codes.

Only those in bold are related to your DME. The other stuff is airbag, climate control, and lighting related.

Follows DSX's advice and clear faults and monitor what comes back.

Also those vanos codes indicate the solenoids are sticking, not mechanically jammed. You can try cleaning them as nate has suggested. Use compressed air to blow to clean them.

Y'know, memory's dirt cheap & gettin' cheaper.....16 gb SIMM's arriving now....terabyte SIMM's almost here....so how come we don't have 3D error code recording? i.e., codes are recorded with time line and no code is overwritten - think: database records.

Ahhhhhhh! Perspective.

BTW, did you check battery voltage 1st thing in morning, before engine start?

I checked voltage after being home a few hours last night. I will check first thing in the morning.

13.9 is a little low with the engine running. Still I would follow DSX on this. Reset and see what comes back the engine running.
