Question about 1997 BMW Z3 Roadster
Light just came on 2 days ago. No noticable driving problem . . . maybe running a tad rough(but its due an oil chg). Autozone chk'd it and gave me P1423 Volkswagen, & P1423 Suburu info on printout. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. BTW...I knew a guy that drove over a year w/chk eng light on before car started running erradically. Turns out it was the Cam Position sensor...once changed it ran like a top. Thanks from a retired ole' vet.
Code P1423 for a BMW is secondary airflow sytem bank 1, consult your repair manual and you can go from there. I am not up on imports to be honest but I was able to find out what the code means for you. hope it helps.

Tips for a great answer:
1st when the
airbag light is on the system is disabled, so if u have an accident
they will not work, as to the common cause read below.
When the airbag light is on it means a fault has occurred in the system and the airbag diagnostic monitor has disabled the system, the most common problem that turns the light on is a break in the connection to the steering wheel mounted airbag, this is due to a rotating ribbon contact that breaks under the steering wheel that connects the airbag to the wiring harness and the diagnostic monitor, the part is called th clock spring contact, a coiled up ribbon electrical contact that turns with the wheel
