I'm not sure the code you're getting is a clear indicator for any of the repairs you've attempted, although they're all decent maintenance projects. That said, I'm not sure what direction that should point you.

The code may seem unhelpful, but it's a pretty direct statement that an experienced tech will have a better answer for. Posting here will sometimes yield a very accurate response from a tech with instructions, sometimes not. I'm not a mechanic, so I can't offer that type of help.

For $30, though, you can sign up for a one day membership at www.bmwtis.com. As you have the actual factory code via the Peake tool, you can search that database using your VIN for any information BMW has released to its service providers with regard to a known issue. This is often accompanied by repair instructions and/or further diagnostic suggestions. Given the money you've spent replacing sensors and the value of your time doing the other work, this seems like a worthwhile investment.

Good luck!
