I had a small nail in the near new tyre that BMW service said needs replacing. I took it to my local tyre guy and he fixed it although he said he shouldn't. Happy days!
For X1 you need to turn engine on and use the scroller on the indicator stalk to get the reset indicator, then hold the BC button on the end of the stalk for 5 secs. I had to do it twice but prob solved.
Believe it or not, it's in the owners' manual...

    The fuel sender unit could be faulty. It says 1/4 tank even though it is almost empty. Carry a jerry can of gas in the back , and run it down to 1/4 or less to see if the problem repeats itself.
    The gas guage and trip computer are only as accurate as the float in the tank.

    (P3105 Cylinder 2 High Pressure Injector Low Side Circuit Low).
    This could be an issue with the fuel injector or it's electronics for cylinder 2. You'll need to get a Good mechanic to look at this as the fuel system might need to be depressurised before any work can be done.

    First, remove the engine drive belts. Then see if it will crank over. I have seen an alternator that was seized keep the engine from turning over. If it still will not turn, using a pipe wrench on the crank pulley see if it will turn. Pull the spark plugs. If water or too much fuel is in a cylinder it will hydro lock the engine.

    How about the basics? Ignition system ok (plugs firing)? Fuel pressure at the engine OK? No trouble codes when a code reader used?

    Hello Joe Hord and thank you for asking...

    FUEL pump in the clear... That is IMPORTANT.

    A bunch of things... but the smart money would be to beg,
    borrow or BUY an ODB (diagnostic) reader...

    SAVEs big money on TOTALLY POINTLESS guessing and TAMPERING that is likely to leave you with more TROUBLES than you started with (ending in pointless replacements of VERY
    expensive OXYGEN-SENSORS... BECAUSE the "clown"
    at the "auto-zone" says "hey Oxygen Sensors"...

    Typically Oxygen Sensors (like THERMOMETERS) merely
    report the NEWs...

    Buying a new THERMOMETER is not going to get rid of a
    COLD... (or the plague).

    The real NEWS is likely a MUFFLER BAFFLE has come
    loose or the CATALYTIC CONVERTER has given it's all...
    and is now blocking the EXHAUST.

    From what you describe... my memory of being round the
    bend... That's my better guess:

    I like guessing games as much as the next guy... but
    INTRODUCING more troubles is more likely if you
    take the EASTER-EGG approach.

    Check to see if your local EXHAUST shop will do a
    "FREE" diagnostic read...

    Happy hunting!

    Cautionary note: If you live (here) in California you want to play
    Very CLOSE ATTENTION to those SMOG regulations...

    Gubnor Nuisance may be busy right now... But sooner or later
    (end of the world or not) you are going to get that SMOG test...

    It would make me sad to think you have to do the SAME JOB
    all over again .

    Good luck: better skill.

    "Burned up 4 alternators" isn't a very helpful description, so what went wrong? Diodes? Regulator? Stator windings? Rotor windings?

    A basic self-contained machine sensed alternator is almost bulletproof when the wiring is good and secure but they aren't tolerant of surges and they will surge whenever a good connection with the battery is lost while at speed.
    An intermittent connection could be anywhere in the supply or ground and although rare an internal break in a cable, a poor connection inside a crimped terminal or even a bad connection inside the battery.

    If the alternator is a smart charging type it adds new fault possibilities to those above.
