Help with this issue please
 
So I was making a turn through a shopping plaza when my car just shut off completely, but when put it back into park n crank it to start it starts right up...?

Anyone else have/had this issue?

It's going to be the camshaft position sensor. I'll be replacing mine soooon.

Pull codes. Report back.

Any update?

Getting the car checked out tomorrow so I will report back with the issue then.

I'm thinking that's its my fuel pump since my car has 126k miles.

Crankshaft position sensor.

Soooo I had a buddy of mine who worked at bmw try n pull codes off of the car and nothing came up. We ordered a new sensor and will install once it gets in to see if the issue is resolved. Hopefully this issue doesn't lead to any other further issues

What sensor?

Not to wise to change a part like a cam/crankshaft sensor if the code is not present at all, but I hope that it will solve the issue.

Crank ps can cause stalling without throwing a code. Mine did. A couple of times before it eventually threw a code. Cam sensors are more likely to produce rough performance issues and misfires. Nothing works if the crank ps misses a beat. That's why I would replace the crank sensor rather than the cam sensors if the problem is a cut out problem rather than a rough performance problem. Its not a costly job and I would rather just chnage it than risk stalling on a motorway and another unsuspecting car backending me.

You noticing other symptoms, OP? Rough idle, idle surging, anything?
