How do u reset the start engine codes on a BMW 1998/528 series

You have to have a scan tool. If you have tried that and codes come up as soon as you clear them, then their is a greater issue. Check the starter relay, disconnect it and clear codes and see if problem persists.

My hood struts on my 1990 bmw 5251 need replaced .easy job ?

No special tools necessary. Just a screwdriver. Takes less than 5 minutes. Have someone hold the hood and do one shock at a time, or put vise grips on the side you are not doing to prevent the hood from falling on you.
