My Ride: 2004 330CI
I have a 2004 330CI. My car would go into limp mode on occassion until one day two weeks ago I was on may way to work and the radio died and dashboard lit up like a christmas tree. Took to a local foreign car shop that specializes in BMW. They said it was the alternator. I replaced it myself. Car has been running fine until today when it went into limp mode again. Stopped car turned off and turned back on and everything ok. Took to auto parts store got codes read. They are P0700, 2240, 0171, 0174 and 1892. Some of those are due to and intake boot crack. I have the part and I will be replacing this weekend. Not sure about Transmission code (I hope it isn't the transmission). They tested battery and said it needs charged. It is the original battery. I am just wondering if limp mode is due to bad battery. Any help would be appreciated.
