My SES engine management light came on recently. I took it to a BMW dealer & asked them to do a diagnostic test. They found no faults currently present, system reset. When my car returned by the dealer, that little yellow light is still on.
I booked the car in again for another diagnostic test (which they tried to charge me for again). Again they say no faults currently present & reset the system. Thank you sir, good bye. However, I requested a copy of the diagnostic report. On the drive home that little yellow light reappeared.
Looking at the diagnostic report it lists 4 faults:
1. Camshaft sensor, bank 1, synchronisation to crankshaft, recorded as 3th fault in fault memory. OBDII code: P0394. Detected 11 times.
2. Signal, oxygen sensor before cat. bank 1 recorded as 1th fault in memory. OBDII code: P0134. Detected 189 times.
3. Signal, camshaft sensor, exhaust, bank 1 recorded as 2th fault in memory. OBDII code: P0365. Detected 36 times.
4. Function, exhaust VANOS, bank 1 recorded as 4th fault in memory. Actual value too high. OBDII code: P0014. Detected 11 times.
I have booked the car in again. But judging from previous posts, this can really take many visits to finally fix. Can anyone please decipher the above, so I might be able to point the dealer in the right direction. BTW the car runs fine & drinks only Shell.
Thanks in advance for any help. Chris
