Check engine light - scanned with INPA and got...

Check Engine Light - INPA error codes

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Hi Guys,

For the last 2 weeks I have been getting the empty check engine light appear every 5 days or so only to disappear after restarting the car 4 times.

The car seems to run fine and everything appears normal, it doesn't even appear sluggish or anything just the light randomly just turns on when driving normally.

I scanned the car with INPA and got the following error codes..

2AF2 - nitric oxide sensor, Lambda linear
2AF4 - NOXsensor, electrical
2AF6 - nitric oxide sensor, lambda binary


Can you advise whats wrong and whats needed to fix this? i have a 320i n43 2007 69k miles.

Many thanks

Could be a sensor is kicking the bucket on you 02 that is, or you have a cat failing. Becuase its all 3 codes I would assume 02 sensor.

What makes you think its the CAT as a whole? I was thinking possibly the NOx sensor?

I've attached a screen from a engine diagnostic page in INPA. As you can see the lambda after bank 2 is not reporting anything? does this make sense to anyone or is that how it is on a 320i?
