i think more detail would be helpful. What kind of false signals? are you getting an ses light? Fault codes? what is the dealer saying. what are the symptoms.

My BMW Service guy usually does what's called a "Puma Case." This way they send the diagnosis to many dealers and wait for responses as we do here on the board.

i'm sure you already know about this, but since it wasn't mentioned...
