HELP PLEASE!!! eml light,traction control light,brake light all yellow intermittant

Hey everyone! i had a post a while back and i was having the same issue but i have now gotten the codes ran from bmw and they told me to replace the icv valve and it would fix the problem...didnt work! The bmw codes i got from them is 00f6,0009,00f5,00ca,00e4,00d3,00e3. Im not sure what all of these mean but the eml light,traction light, and brake light all light up yellow. The SES light stays on constantly but the eml light and other stuff come on once i have drove the car for a little bit. When i come to a stop the RPM's bounce around 3-500 rpms and then will straight out after a moment. But when i take off it like has half the power as usual and when i let off the accelerator it kind of jerks. i have replace the mass air flow sensor,both cam sensors,icv valve. If anyone could help me it would be great! Thanks for reading!!

How long have you had the car?
What have you changed on it recently?
If you haven't changed anything part wise (upgrade or other) what have you been tinkering with?
Taken any of the dash apart?
Any Engine noise that's unusual?

Clean Throttle body full of gunk inside and out and if that doesn't work replace it. Potentiometers inside may be faulty.

The only thing I have replaced is the mass air flow and icv valve...the dealer replaced both cam sensors. I have not touched the throttle body but is it difficult to do?

no, just time and patience. i learned on my own with no prior knowledge. just follow the diy's (do it yourself) step by step. if they get too confusing, come back and ask your questions here. Otherwise, look it up on youtube for an actual video diy. good luck. it's alot of fun.
