First time SES light - need some advice

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
My completely stock 2008 335 e93 has almost 45,000 miles and this is the first time I've gotten the SES light. The car seems to run fine but I do want to understand what is going on. I bought a code reader that spits out BMW specific codes. They are:

29F3. Fuel low pressure sensor, electric;

And a bunch all dealing with the O2 sensor before catalytic converter 2:
2C3E. O2 sensor before CC2, line fault;
2C9D. O2 sensor heating before CC2, activation;
2C3A. O2 sensor before CC2, dynamics;
2CAB. O2 sensor 2 before CC, temperature;
2CA7. O2 heating before CC2, function.

The second group all seems to be dealing with the O2 sensor or heater for the sensor but I am more concerned with the first error dealing with the pressure sensor.

Is it odd that both a pressure sensor and an oxygen sensor would go at the same time or are the errors related? Or is there something more macroscopic going on?

I can't get a service appointment for another 1.5 weeks. The car seems to run fine (I would not know there is anything wrong with the car except for the SES light).

Can I drive it until my service appt or do I risk hurting something?

It's a yellow light. You should be fine for 1.5 weeks.

Some people drive with SES lights on for years.

Thanks! This is a very helpful thread. I did a search before posting and for some reason this specific thread did not show up.

For future, using google will yield better results than the forum search, no problem at all
