Question

A friend read mine the other day. Can't remember if it was a PO442 or PO447.

It all started my display and chime going off and a picture of the gas cap by the car.
Checked the cap and of course it was fine.

The it sets a code and the SES light is on.

Someone mentioned that topping off my tank when fueling can cause it to overflow into the charcoal canister.
I can't believe they would make such a stupid design like that, but if this is the case, ya think they'd warranty it?

12,500 miles!

anyone know what code cc-id 286 is? i know it has something to do with my angel eye (Lux) or headlight (also aftermarket).

headlight seems a little low/weak and the angel isn't working at all except for a a very weak dim light deep in the part itself..

Thanks all

So I just realized that these are all P codes.....they are not BMW specific.

P codes are universal across all US-spec vehicles. They are emissions related.

I've got three right now:

4593 - ?
4AE6 - ?

Any idea what the last two mean? Getting a rough idle - car goes in tomorrow for servicing.

Transmission Range N

Anyone ever see the message 'Transmission Range N'?

Then it tells me the following:

The transmission automatically shift to P when the engine is switched off. Please contact your BMW center as soon as possible.

I have a 2012 335is with the DCT. It just came up while driving on the freeway. Took it to the dealer today and they said they've never heard of it or seen it and that I need a part that isn't in the US or Germany so my car could be in the shop for 4-6 weeks and I can't drive it. What the heck???

Newbie looking for DIY info

Please pardon the newbie I am. I've had a 2008 328 xi for 3 years and now, and the free service is over. I am looking at doing all the maintenance I can by myself. I have always taken care of all my cars and cycles by DIY, but this is my 1st BMW car.

Where can I get a device to read my car's info/codes (and also reset them)? I didn't see the link referred to above. I would like to be able to see and do all the things the dealer does. Any other advise for DIY is also greatly appreciated!

Thanks in advance!

"See" is fairly well covered by: http://www.bavariantechnic.com/

Give you a fair chunk of "Do" as well.

Unhappy Help?

How do I get the codes pulled for free in CA? My local autozone said CA has some specific laws on the ability to pull codes and they wouldn't pull the codes for less than 85 dollars, when they advertise that its free!
