    Hello, First, I wish everyone well during these trying times. Mostly because I am human but also to explain why the car took a beating. COVID was rough and due to circumstances I had to drive passengers (those cars you call with the app on your phone) in my car to make ends meet. The...

    Hi All: First I want to thank you all for the great help advice on many threads - helps a lot. So my car threw SES light, engine had rough start (sounds more like when you try to run in 4th gear at 20mph or so). I took it to Advance Auto they said all cylinders misfire based on code read by...

    Hey everyone; first thread ever here; just signed up. I've read tons and tons of threads on this site, but never actually signed - now I have. To the problem! My E46 320i from 1999, has led me to an extreme headache. as the title says, my engine light does not illuminate when I turn the key...

    Hey all, I'd like to start off by saying I am new to the forums because I'm new to BMW. I love my car and it had very few issues at the time of purchase. This one was caused by a dumb decision by myself capped off by a detailer who messed up (going to be talking to him next week in person)...

    FIRST TIME EVER POSTING. I usually just read.. but I am having a lot of trouble with my sisters 2008 328XI. She took it to the dealer for a SES and they told her she needed a new DMTL pump. I replaced that and still had the SES light on. So I had the code read at Autozone and they said it was an...

  7. E46 M3 (2001-2006)
    Hello All, I've now owned my e46 M3 for 2+ months and have put about 2k miles on it. It needed some minor stuff done to it when I bought it, in particular, interior work. The headliner was sagging and the original owner had paid someone to do a half assed job to fix it, prior. He (OO) was not...

    Once after driving my 2008 535i a short distance there was an alert saying "Replace Fuel Cap" or something like that. I forgot to check the cap when I stopped and the next day I had the same alert, only this time it when out after a few seconds and the SES light (yellow engine icon) came on...

    Hello all, I just purchased a 2002 525i automatic/tiptronic used obviously. The car is in great condition only 2 previous owners I have most of the regular maintenance records. Only 2 minor (I hope) issues with the car. 1.) After the car has been driven for 1.5 to 2 hours the Service engine...

    hello-- first post on here...the other day my low coolant light flashed on and then went off after about a minute. Then yesterday, as I was driving, my SES light went on, the car started idling rough, and the low coolant light and the headlight light kept going on and off. I took the car home...

    What is your state law on buyer or seller responsibility for SES/CEL & smog tests? Edit: Change the question, as per E36_phantom in post #2 below, to more about the seller's specific legal responsibility. Edit: Further generalized the question, as per Edjacks' comments in post #3 to cover both...

    So I went to Auto Zone this morning and had the code read for my SES light and it showed as p0171 - Bank 1 Lean. I have read several forums on this topic and have seen the various problems associated with this code - CCV valve, DISA valve, some sort of vacuum leak (intake hose or otherwise)...

    2000 328i 182,XXX Hey Guys, I am really starting to give up on trying to fix my "SES CODES". Anyways, I failed smog about a month ago, and got until April 8th to fix all those problems to pass smog. Here are the codes from my OBD2-Scanner that I would get. P1188,P1189 (Usually They Would Be...

    A few problems with my 2003 325i: 1. The wiper fluid basin has fluid in it, but the pump will not dispense any on the windshield. Do I have to replace it? 2. Hazard light button and Central Locking button on the center console have both collapsed. They cannot be pressed or lifted. Is there any...

    I have no idea why my 2007 328i developed this random engine shakes / jerks while idling. :bawling: The random shakes occur at P, R, N, D and DS. The SES light is lit but no other warning lights are on. I am borrowing a OBD reader tomorrow to check what's wrong, and I have made an appointment...
