SOURCE: need to know what p1188 is to diy er

SAE Code P1188 DTC Code 17596 Description Linear 02 Sensor / Compensator Resistor Short to ground SAE Code P1189 DTC Code 17597 Description Linear 02 Sensor / Compensator Resistor Short to B+ SAE Code P0170 DTC Code 16554 Description Fuel Trim, Bank1 Malfunction

Basically you need a new oxygen sensor, The fuel trim code is from the computer trying to adjust the fuel/Air mixture to compensate for the bad signal from the sensor. Just change the one closer to the engine, the one behind the Catalytic converter will thow a different code when it fails.

SOURCE: check engine light comes on but car runs great 2002 bmw 325i and

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: BMW E46 fault code P2799 - what does it mean

If is for a 3 series compact (318ti most common) then
P2799 is the intake air tem sensor 2
Which would explain the high idleing. Probably a sensor problem (bmw will charge) a competant mechanic should do it easily.

There an orange indication on the dashboard of my bmw 318i shaped like an engine.


That means a fault code has been loaded into the computer memory. You will need to connect a scan tool to the ODBII port and read the code to determine what is wrong.

I have a BMW 318i and there is a yellow engine shaped light showing on the dash. What does this mean?


It's your "check engine" light. It means a fault was triggered to the computer. Have someone with BMW scanner or dealer check and repair before it strands you somewhere.

2000 BMW 318i engine light on but car running perfectly. Have tried oxygen sensor, camshaft sensor and map sensor.


Before you waste any more money, buy a Peake R5/FCX check engine analyzer and code resetter. It's $140.00 but well worth it! It gives you BMW specific codes and tables to properly diagnose your problems with the car.

Bmw 318i 1990 noisy tappets


well this could be a wide array of problems based on the conditions such as how often has oil been changed? how many miles on car? low oil pressure light coming on? the first thing i would try is getting some of that engine flush and following the directions, then when you add oil put in an additive that is designed to help get depoits out of the engine, only drive it about 500 miles and repeat, if the noise is better try doing this a third time By doing this i have solved enginge noises that other dealers have diagnosed as a bad engine, It is by far the cheapest solution i can offer good luck and let me know

328i BMW, and the EML light is on


Sometimes you can reset the engine warning light by disconnecting the battery for ten minutes or more (be sure you have your stereo unlock code if needed).
That is not a good solution, it is better to diagnose and eventually fix the problem.
Have the car computer scanned with a code reader, the codes you get in return witll tell you exactly where to find the problem.

Here is the code list.

To get the codes the code reader must be connected to the car computer.


sometimes on Bmw you may need a Interface 16 pin Adapter, depending on the code reader.

Here is a home user code reader : PocketScan™ OBD II Code Reader (AXRCP9125 ...

Here is a good scaner.

Always better having the job done at a qualified garage.
