2006 BMW 525i Repair Question
My service engine light is on in my BMW 525i. Just had it serviced last month what could be the problem?
The outside air temperature sensor is somehow compromised causing the 122 degree reading. The SES light may be on for something as simple as a loose or forgotten gas cap.
okay thank you so much for getting back to me... do you know about how many drive cycles it takes to go off if in fact the issue was with the gas cap?
BMW does nor believe in that strategy. The light will require resetting.
and BMW has to reset it?
At least someone with an OBDII compatible resetting tool
okay thank you... I hope that doesn't cost an arm and a leg to get done :(
The generic version of the aforementioned scan tool is usually only about $100 Peake engineering is one supplier that comes to mind, but even Pep Boys has generic scan tools that will perform the basic funtions you require and it will be your to keep after you reset the fault.
okay this was so helpful thank you thank you thank you
Tell your friends, Facebook would be glad to hear that too.
