gas cap

  1. X5 E53 (1999 - 2006)
    I have a 2006 BMW X5. The other day the service engine soon light comes on, took it to the shop, said it was the gas cap code. Replace it and cleared the code. The light has come back on. The car is running great but no clue why the code has showed up again. Thoughts?

    The other day while driving right after I got gas, idrive told me gas cap wasn't on, pulled over to see if i forgot to tighten it but it was already tight, took it off and re-tightened it. No message since then. Now today while cruising, CEL popped up, and I pulled code 2402 which is pending...

    Hello, I briefly left my gas cap off after refueling. The gas cap was only off for about 20 minutes while I drove home. Two days later, my car sputtered at start-up and shook. About 2 minutes later, the "service engine soon" light came on. I've done very minor repair work on my car myself...

    We all know that using the BMW Remote app (on iOS, in my case) does not activate the car alarm system when used to lock the car doors. But, I just discovered today that when using the remote app to lock the car it does not lock the gas access door. So, if you think you forgot to lock you car...

    The green plastic piece that is attached to the gas cap, part # PA66-GF30, cracked slightly and detached from my gas cap. Can anybody tell me if this piece is essential to anything OTHER than the convenience feature of being able to slide the cap into the holder on the inside of the gas panel...

    Greetings Bimmerfest, glad to be back (previous owner of (2) X3s and a 328Xi). I recently graduated from a 2010 Mini Cooper JCW to a 2011 e92 M3 ZCP with 18k miles. What a difference! In any case, I have been orienting myself to the new car, doing some small cleanup work (rejuvenating rubber...

  9. 7 Series - E65 / E66 (2002 - 2008)
    Howdy all! First time poster here. I'm semi new to the 7 series, but not to BMW overall. As a long term owner (15 years) of a 3 series, I've 'enjoyed' many occasions of mandatory work under the hood (sometimes in magnificent locales like the side of a highway). :D With that being said, I've...

    The other day I was driving when my tighten gas gap light came on. My service engine soon light came on shortly after. The dealer said tighten the gas cap and it will turn off in a day or two. Its been a week and the service engine light (in yellow) is still on and last night when I went to...

    A very trivial item, but I note there's a connector hole in my gas cap for a missing plastic retainer cord. Has anyone had any experience replacing this item? Thanks. Jerry 2001 Z3 2.5i 2000 GMC 1500 conversion van 2007 SAAB 9-3

    Twice in the past month, I've gotten a "Check Gas Cap" warning light after filling up. So I ordered a new gas cap and received it in the mail today. At first, I thought I must have gotten the wrong cap, because it has a bright blue rubber seal, and the tether cord is now attached to a rotating...

    So this was kind of odd today. Started off when I went to unlock my car my driver's side didn't unlock but the other 3 doors did. I manually unlocked the door and went on my drive. I pulled up to a gas station and got out of my door, pushed my gas panel, and nothing. I pressed the unlock switch...
