No.

You need a GARAGE to read the ERRROR CODES.

You are only guessing.

I got the warning light the other day in my 320 as I was joining the motorway. I wasn't flooring it like others in this thread, I was actually in a high gear and slow, probably should have geared down. Then it just shuddered a little and the light came on.

The light disappeared when I turned the engine off and I don't think it reappeared for the whole journey home.

I haven't been driving the car much recently. Once a week for short journeys has been the norm sadly. Will have to take it in to the dealers on Monday I guess.

You will find the vanos gears dont position as quickly as they should as a result and you get a vanos tining error.
Sometimes low oil / oil surge / hard cornering on rough like track kerbs can cause it, or simply dirty lube.

Needs more info.
