I got a p0597 code on my 2012 bmw 328i

That is a code for the electronically controlled engine thermostat. Have checked asap before you do very expensive damage to your engine.

After a long drive on vacation in a heavy rain, the check engine, VSC, and Trac Off lights came on and stayed on. Autozone says the codes are P0015 and P0017. any ideas?

Year/make/model??? P0015 is a camshaft position sensor code and P0017 is a crankshaft position sensor code ( generically ). The computer most likely disabled the traction/Vsc as a safety related operation. It is possible the heavy rain may have caused an electrical issue within the wiring/sensors. I would suggest having the codes cleared and continue driving and monitor the engine light to see if these codes return. Ir they do, further diagnostics will be required

I have a BMW 318i saloon. I got a P0015 P trouble code. The engine stoped during driving. Could you please let me know where is wrong and how to sort it? Many thanks Ben

Hi, the indication is either your timing belt has skipped a tooth or the valve timing actuator has malfunctioned. The engine valve train will have to be taken apart and diagnosed by a mechanic that is familiar with variable valve timing engines. Please let me know if you have more questions and thanks for using FixYa.

If you have the codes, then you must have used a scanner. The scanner should tell you what the codes mean.

What does it mean when the check engine light comes on and doesn't appear anything is wrong. No other lights are on in my 2006 pontiac solstice?

the on board computer that handles engine management ran a self test and found a problem. You will have to have the system scaned.
some parts houses (autozone) will scan it for free. This will give you a trouble code which will send you to the appropiet system.Sometimes the code will tell you what is wrong. Sometimes the code will send you to run test on certain components.
Even leaving the gas cap loose will turn on the lamp.
