Knowledge base on Peake codes for E39 M5

A recurring issue are threads asking about the meaning of certain Peake codes as well as likely culprits in troubleshooting issues. It seems logical to collate all these discussions into one Peake code knowledge base for the E39 M5.

Let's start with collecting all the well-known Peake codes and repairs. After that members with Peake codes that haven't been discussed can post in this thread for advice.

Please refrain from posting new threads about the subject of Peake codes from now on but post in this thread.

Tips:
1. Document your current codes, then reset/clear them, and then post active codes here for help.
2. Be sure to understand the difference between a B and a 6, as detailed in the next post.
3. Look up the descriptions behind the codes, using these attachments.
4. The first thing a Peake reports is a table number. No matter what you see, look up Table 18.

[Jan 2012 - updated attachments. HT: cab & Sailor24]
"EOBD" = Euro
"FCX2" = readers sold between 8/2003 and 12/2007

My first post on this subject would be to make sure the codes you are seeing are read correctly. One of the fairly common errors with reading the codes are the alpha characters, which can look like numbers. For example the letter "b" lower case, looks like a number "6" until you realize that the number "6" in the LCD display has the top horizontal line lit up.

Letter b:

|_
|_|





Number 6:
._
|_
|_|





More info on reading the codes or what reader is meant for your car can be found in the peakeresearch.com faq:

FAQ's



edit:

Table 1b is displayed as:



Code 16 for Cyl. 1-4 Exhaust CPS is displayed as:

01 ///M5 LeMans/Black/Silverstone

For those using the R5 SRS tool, you may read a code with the table number "06" and find there is no table by that number in the manual. This is, in fact, the same as table 04 and table 10 and is an omission from the manual.

81 was a code I got along with codes for all 4 O2 sensors (can't remember the exact ones but it was related to the heater?!) The O2 codes were in the Peake manual but the 81 wasn't. Turns out it was a fuse that powers the O2 sensors, located under the hood, 30amp.

I have been getting 69, b2, b3 for a while now, they go back on after a reset after a couple hundred miles. The last time the SES came back on, it was only b2, b3, not more 69. Car runs fine and an indy could not find the problem. Sometimes, rarely, I do get rough idle when the engine is cold.

Still don't know what the problem(s) are.

Peake codes-- should I worry?

Got a couple codes today.

#18 ignition coil cyl #4
E8 Pedal position sensor 2

Are these something I should take care of right away?

thanks.

I really hope this isn't too long but I made this a while ago and I just noticed this sticky so I figured it couldn't hurt. As I get a chance I'll change some of the fault descriptions into links to various threads on those particular issues. This is a copy of Table 18 in the code book for the Peake R5/FCX-II code reader tool. Table 18 is the only table I've ever used for my MY00 beast, however your table may be different. Enjoy.

Table 18

Should you wish to have an excel sheet for printing and keeping in your Peake carry-case I've attached one. It's already formatted to print on a single letter size sheet (small font though, let the far-sighted be forewarned).
