I posted this on 02-11 and I have not had any responses. If anyone reading this could possibly lead me into what I should look for I would really appreciate it. Thanks in advance!!!


....my "Service Engine Soon" light is on. 75k miles. I have a peake tester, so I ran the codes. Codes read as followed:

Table 20
281E - Variable Air Intake System: Activation
2796 - Electronic Throttle Controller: Adaption Wrong
2882 - Mixture Preperation Bank 1
2883 - Mixture Preperation Bank 1

Car seems to run fine, no rough idling, can't see any leaks. I have searched the codes 281E and 2796 all over and can't find much information on them. Please advise on what I should look for with the codes listed above. Thanks in advance!

Shortly after taking my '05 330CiC out of winter storage I threw a "Service Engine Soon" light and read codes 2882 & 2883 (along with 27D6 and 28DD). I cleared'm but 2882 & 2883 kept on re-occurring. They were caused by a crack in the rubber elbow (13 54 1 438 759, $13.95 @ Bavauto) going from the collar with the Mass Air Sensor to the Throttle body which was causing a lean mixture. Supposedly it's a common problem...

code 2796 (or is it 279b) and 2882/2883

I got those codes as well.
after reading the code book again, i realized that it was really code 279b
i replaced my thermostat, which took care of 279b

i am still struggling with 2882/2883
