The check engine light could be any number of things and the only way to find out is have the codes scanned. The brake light issue is common on E46 3 series. It is an issue were the brown ground wire that goes into the lamp housing melts at the connector causing a loose ground connection. The connector needs to be replaced and also add additional grounding wires to prevent further issues. And for fuel additives either use the cheveron techron, or the bmw fuel additive(the bmw stuff is the exact same thing, so just use which ever is cheaper).

SOURCE: check engine light 2003 BMW 325i

both codes are for lean mixture ... bank one and bank two .....that usually means a vacuum leak in the air intake system ... there is a Y shapped boot off the throttle body that fails frequently .. look for a hole or tear or general deterioration ... there is a second boot after the MAF (mass air flow) sensor, that is another possibility ... any off the vacuum hoses you can see under the fancy cover plate could be leaking .. there is a "crank case breather diaphram" that can do the same ... you can test that by removing the oil filler cap slowly (running) ..there should be a sllight vacuum release ... if its a big vacuum whoosh and maybe engine stumbling then suspect the crank case breather diaphram ... finally you could have a bad MAF sensor but more likely the vacuum leak ... running with a lean mixture can eventually damage valves and valve seats ... i use a small rubber hose to my ear to find vacuum leaks (stethoscope) ...

SOURCE: check engine light bmw 325i code 340

Code PO340 "Camshaft Position Sensor Circuit Malfunction". Now that does not mean that if you simply replace the sensor your problem will be solved. It can be simply loose, cut, or corroded wiring. It can also be something entirely different. This is where diagnostic skills come in.

Hi,

The code you reported does not seem to have relevance for BMW. Often generic OBDII codes do not have meaning and in this case the fault code does not correlate with any reference tables that I am using at this time. If you can have the car scanned with the BMW proprietary software and revert with those codes, it might shed light on this issue.

Let me know.so that we could proceed.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

2e7c fault how to fix it


It's a factory OBD2 code specific to your make and model. Either find the list of codes(frequently difficult) or see the dealer. It usually has to do with something other than the engine or drive tran. Found something on a BMW site. they replaced the water pump & thermostat to fix the problem. Read all the posts on the link I provided.

P0444


code po444 is referencing a purge control problem. this could be a bad connection or a problem with the purge solenoid for the evaporative system(EVAP). this is controlled by the PCM to allow fuel vapours to be drawn into the engine and burnt from the gas tank under certain conditions. the p0174 is a lean running condition on bank 2 and p0171 is a lean running condition on bank 1. the lean running conditions could be O2 sensors, lean condition caused by bad fuel pressure, dirty injectors, bad MAF sensor, vacuum leak.

2006 BMW 325i - Driving to work today, dash light up with seatbelt monitor, tire pressure monitor, and ABS goes out. HELP!


Is the battery original from the factory-replace it ?

If not -- test it

Test the Alternator after you confirm the battery
is capable of taking a charge & holding it

Then after the battery & alternator issues, if any-- are resolved,
check for codes again

Use a scan tool to retrieve all codes & write them down
BEFORE you ever disconnect the battery
