    A year ago, we had just loaded the car for a road trip. I started the engine and the Check Engine light came on. Having had this happen in a previous BMW, I checked the gas cap which had resolved it before. This time it didn’t work so I called a local dealership and they worked us in. After...

    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...

    Are the non stop warning messages on my 530xi bull ****? Drives fine no issues. Every few weeks and service engine soon light comes on. What is this? Thanks for any insight.

Car is...

    New to owning a BMW....I bought an '09 335i e93. In a nutshell--Some of the lights that come on during start up have caused me a little concern--being a new BMW owner, i'm not sure if the concern is warranted. I'll attempt to post a video of start up, as well as a picture of only the ignition...

    I just drove a 6 hour trip. Literally, during the last mile of the trip the "check gas cap" light came on followed shortly thereafter by the "service engine soon" light. I then found out that my gas cap was not put back when I filled up 4 hours previous. I installed new gas cap, but "service"...

    Hello Members: My "Service Engine Soon" light has come on as the first cold snap has hit Connecticut. The idle is bouncing between 600 and 700 rpm, and is "skipping a beat" on acceleration. My '07 328xi has 128k on it - the plugs have never been changed. Ideas? Additionally: since I...

    PLEASE HELP! The trans fail safe light came on long time ago. I went to have it checked out at a spot I 'used' to trust in Atlanta.... they told me it was my ABS system (huh?). I've driven the car around now for weeks and the light comes and goes on. What I've noticed is that when on other...

    Greetings, Is there a comprehensive list error code for BMW X5 "service engine soon" errors, as well as the fixes? I have had a huge list given to me Service department when my Service Engine Soon light came on. They are suggesting I replace my crankcase vent update kit which I know it's one...

    I had my car puttering before and I took a BMW dealership only to find out that it was a ignition/engine coil and the cost of it was only $59 but they charge me $200 for the swapping which took 1.5 minutes. So my car started doing it again this morning and I knew what it was so I went to advance...

    I have a 2004 X3 2.5 (122,XXX mi) and the other day my service engine soon came on for a few hours and then went off. I thought it might be tweaking, then my car started taking longer than normal to start. The engine will turn 4-5 seconds before actually starting and later in the day it will...

    Since February 2013 (2 months after my warranty expired) my 2008 BMW 325i began displaying an annoying intermittent "Electrical System Malfunction" message on my iDrive accompanied by deactivation of the cruise control. Additionally, the AM dial of the radio developed an occasional escalating...

    Hi All, I've tried looking around some threads but can't seem to find what I'm looking for... My three lights keep coming on for the Service Engine Soon, Coolant and Oil. I have everything checked and nothing is wrong. The codes get re-set by my mechanic and they are off for a few days...and...

    Ok, I am in need of some advice from someone that has had this similar issue. Around October of 2012, I took my E39 530i in for an oil change at a local BMW dealer, and they informed me that I might be in need of a valve cover gasket replacement as there were indications of dripping oil from...
