    What kind of Diagnostic software and tools can I use (or download) so that I can read the trouble codes, reset the errors and do some programming of features? What is INPA software and how do I get it? What OBD tool do you recommend? Thank you for any tips, I am a newbie.

    Hi Guys, Sorry if this has been covered in other posts. I am relatively new to the world of diagnostic software, so I have a few questions. Can I get everybody's opinion or explanation on: What are the different types of software and which one is the genuine BMW software, GT1, INPA, DIS etc...

    Bought my 2006 325i and I currently have two problems. My cruise control doesn't work at all and when putting the car in reverse (manual) reverse lights don't work. After checking the reverse lights code it simply says left bulb. I have swapped both bulbs still no luck. Could this possibly be a...

    Hi everyone, thanks for taking the time. I've got a crazy list of things happening, and when I took it to the shop, my mechanic (who i do trust) told me it's going to cost a lot because he's gotta find what's wrong. I thought I'd post the list here and get some thoughts from you. 2004 325CI...

    Hi I have an airbag light on in my 2000 E46. I have plugged in my laptop to try and read the fault code to understand which sensor might be at fault, but can never connect to the airbag ECU. When using INPA I get no response from control unit as an error (see copy and paste of the error readout...

    So I've had the engine code p1449 for awhile stating that my pump is top high. Took it to a mechanic and they said I need a new fuel pump. I replaced the pump and cleared the code but it came back so it has to be something else. Car idles a little bit rough on cold start but I've noticed...

    Hello again, Around Christmas, my engine light came on. I noticed nothing wrong with the car at all. A few days later, it went off. Apart from the little idle shivering and the headlights/interior light dimming/surging slightly when car has been running for a while, the car has been fine since...
  13. DIY: Do It Yourself
    Hopefully I'm posting this with the right format and what not, but recently I got this error code and found no DIYs anywhere on how to do it. I was kinda skeptical at first on replacing the pump itself because of the generic fixes (like the gas cover being off / un-tight) but I always close the...

    My car (2001 330ci) has been acting up occasionally for the past several months. It will basically go into (what I think is) limp mode. It just doesn't have nearly as much power, almost like not all the cylinders are firing although it still runs smooth. The service engine light came on about...
