BMW Fault Codes

2022 BMW X3 exterior

Your BMW model, whether you have an X3 or a 4 Series, has countless moving parts to keep your vehicle operating.

Your BMW of Tigard mechanic will know how to handle any issues, but it’s a good idea to get familiar with the BMW fault code list of some of the most common codes. The team at BMW of Tigard covers the BMW fault codes and their meanings below so that you can be equipped to handle any issues in Portland.

 


BMW Fault Codes and Their Meaning

BMW of Tigard has put together a BMW fault code list of some of the most common codes you’ll see pop up on your dash. We cover the common codes below:

BMW Fault Codes: P1014

The fault code P1014 is usually due to the vehicle’s valvetronic eccentric shaft sensor. This code usually indicates that your vehicle needs to be serviced by a BMW mechanic immediately.

BMW Fault Code: P1017

This is the indicator for “Valvetronic Eccentric Shaft Sensor Plausibility,” and it is similar to the previous code, albeit specific to poor electrical connections in the shaft sensor or a missing reluctor in the electric shaft sensor.

BMW Fault Code: P1023

“Valvetronic Adjustment Range” is again connected to the previous two codes, but you’ll want to head to a mechanic for a specific diagnosis of your issue.

BMW Fault Code: P1030

P1030 has a fault code description of Valvetronic Monitoring Sluggish Movement,” and it could signify a faulty valvetronic motor, as well as an open, shorted, or insufficient electrical connection within the motor circuit of the eccentric motor harness.

BMW Fault Code: P10DF

“Valvetronic Overload Protection Output Stage System Shutdown” will present as a check engine light, and it could indicate abuse of the engine by the user or other issues within the valvetronic system.

BMW Fault Code: P10E0

The engine control module will indicate the fault code P10E0 or “Valvetronic Overload Protection Control Motor System Shutdown” in the case of poor electrical connections or an open or shorted circuit within the valvetronic actuator motor.

BMW Fault Code: P10E1

A P10E1 fault code means there are either poor electrical connections or an open or shorted circuit within the valvetronic actuator motor.

BMW Fault Code: P10E7

This is often caused by a faulty valvetronic actuator motor, affecting the timing of your engine’s intake and exhaust valves, and causing a reduction in your BMW model’s performance quality.

BMW Fault Code: P10E8

Lake Oswego drivers may see this sign if the engine overload protection is triggered and the motor health is compromised, which could come from a faulty motor, motor harness, or electrical connection.
