I filled up with gas this morning, Yes premium and as soon as I started driving I had a Check engine light. I checked the Gas Cap and it was tight. The light that came on is the one noted for Canada? in my Manaul that there is an engine problem with a potential Emissions issue

When I got home I ran Carly and it came up with 9 Fault codes, two that concern me others may have been there for a while

Engine / Motor
Fault Code: 002D2A
Fault Explanation: Differential pressure sensor, intake manifold:
Adaptation
Fault Code: 002D29
Fault Explanation: Differential pressure sensor, intake manifold:
Plausibility

Others that are not concerning, but would like to understand. No telling how long they have been stored if this don't trip the Check Engine light

Airbag
Fault Code: 0093C3
Fault Explanation: :OC3 / PDC 3: Data error in message / Timeout ID
43H (terminals) / ODS - passenger seat mat
Fault Code: 009439
Fault Explanation: :CIS mat CIS error 6 / CIS - seating mat passenger
heating wire interruption / CIS mat - CIS error 6

Instrument cluster / Kombiinstrument
Fault Code: 00A559
Fault Explanation: :KL30g f shutdown / KL.30g f shutdown / KL30g f
Cutoff / Klemme30g f shutdown

Central info display / Zentrales Display
Fault Code: 00A47E
Fault Explanation: :Flap error: Blockade / Hardware Error: Internal
voltage supply defective

Phone / Telefon
Fault Code: 00D690
Fault Explanation: :MOST: ring break / Ring break diagnosis was
performed (Error ring diagnosis). / TCU: ring break diagnosis was
performed (Error ring diagnosis)

Fussraummodul /FRM
Fault Code: 009CCE
Fault Explanation: :Drive passenger side mirror broke / Battery deep
discharge
Fault Code: 00A8B6
Fault Explanation: :Left brake light is defective, PL3 from 07.14 and
SA5A1: LED daytime running lights broken, PL3 from 07.14 and

Z4's don't catch on fire, for all the other things they may do lol ... Jim had it right ... reset and see what happens.

Filippo

yes that is what I am doing, why I posted I cleared the codes. No codes on the way to work today. The reason for the thread is some codes can be just glitches and others can be precursor to problems. Like in my Land cruiser if you get P1104 as an error code intermittently, that's is telling you your O2 sensor will be failing soon. Not an emergency, but something to keep in mind for maintenance.

There is a recall on the PCV valve due to BMWs catching on fire. It is a real thing, more likely in a cold climate according to a friend who is a BMW Service Manager

Fault codes returned. Based on some being nonsense thinking battery. By non sense I am talking about phone and airbag errors along with broken mirror code. Anyone know anything about these codes that is worth digging into other than changing the battery?
This time two more:

I am skeptical this will be a battery issue, but if you have it tested or it is 5-6 years old certainly no regrets in getting a new one.

Battery is 4 years old

From a google search
Instrument cluster Fault Code: 00A559, Fault Explanation: :KL30g f shutdown Associated with Battery Drain
Fault Code: 009CCE Fault Explanation: Drive passenger side mirror broke / battery deep discharge Another Battery indication

Fault Code: 00A8B6
Fault Explanation: :Left brake light is defective, PL3 from 07.14 and
SA5A1: LED daytime running lights broken, PL3 from 07.14 and
SA896: daytime running lights Halogen left defective
none of these are broken or defective, is the 7.14 supposed to be a stored date?

Phone / Telefon Fault Code: 00D690 Fault Explanation: :MOST: ring break / Ring break diagnosis wasSearch says often caused by fiber optic cable issue. I am not using the center console phone thing and have had no issues with my BT connection

Central info display Fault Code: 00A47E, Fault Explanation: :Flap error: Blockade / Hardware Error: Internal voltage supply defectiveAnother voltage item, could be battery or voltage reg. I havent had any issues with the flap opening or closing

Airbag Fault Code: 0093C3 Fault Explanation: :- passenger seat mat
Fault Code: 009439 Fault Explanation: :CIS mat CIS error
heating wire interruption / CIS mat - CIS error 6 Search shows sometimes the passenger seat mat under seat material gets cracked breaking connection. I haven't had the seat heater on. Do I care about this one?

Fault Code: 002F83 Fault Explanation: time counter combi - time
counter DME, comparison
Fault Code: 002F81 Fault Explanation: - time counter DME, comparison
These have to do with engine turn on and off times. I have pressed the start button and started it when I was trying to shut the entuire car off and quickly shut it off. Wonder if that could be the cause here

Fault Code: 002D2A Fault Explanation: Differential pressure sensor, intake manifold: Adaptation
Fault Code: 002D29 Fault Explanation: Differential pressure sensor, intake manifold Plausibility
Both have to do with the MAP sensor and pressure in the manifold

I may be wrong, but I thought I read somewhere that getting a bunch of errors like these is related to the footwell module crapping out.

One thing I read is someone was convinced their opening and closing the top with the car off (Comfort access) was putting a load on an aged battery that caused erroneous fault codes (some of the above). He went to only doing the top when the car was on and didn't have an issue. I have been doing that the last few days.

Regardless, 4 years is a long time on a battery. I have had expensive AGMs fail earlier than that. The battery in my 2009 failed at 4 years when it started popping erroneous codes but still worked otherwise. Codes stopped when I changed it out. I will swap the battery in any case and see what that does. Nothing lost really if that doesn't correct it.

Researching the registration differences between the same BMW battery and after market. Seems some had issues using Carly to register aftermarket batteries with different specs and others didnt
