Thanks for the quality response. I just purchased the bmw scanner 1.4.0 you suggested.
SES light does not work at all at this time. When I turn key to on or run the cluster test, it does not illuminate. My thoughts were that it is either a broken led or disabled. If it was disabled, the dealer ecu reflash should re enable it I hoped. I'm pretty inclined as far as repairs go, so soldering in a new led is a possibility for me.
I have a friend with the same car I can most likely barrow a MAF from.
My car came from a dealer who bought it at auction in NC, so the history is a complete mystery to me. I suspect he played some games to get it inspected when I purchased it.
