    This is not DIYer fix. You need to take it to a independent shop that has a GT1 or Autologic to scan the codes. Good luck. The Bombe from GGC BMWCCA has a list of repair shops in your area that even offer discounts.

    Hi,
    It is not some thing that you could fix. You should bring it over for free diagnostic test and estimate.
