There is no P0106 code for your 323, but there is an internal BMW-FC 106 that returns:

'A' Camshaft Position Actuator Signal Low (Bank 1)
M52: 'B' Camshaft Position Actuator Tight or Jammed

That is probably what CarSoft is referring to.

For quick and easy reference, go to:

http://www.iequus.com/support/obd2_definitions.php

If it's not on there, just call them and ask a tech and they will tell you.
This is the MFG of the code reader that I own.

Hey everyone has anyone gotton the code P1351, I know its suppose to be a misfire in C5 but, I reset the code and haven't had it come back up as a "service engine soon". So looking for the positive in everything, what do I need to do to fix the problem when it DOES come back??

Misfire

I had the same problem about a year ago. It was the spark plug wires in my car.

Anyone know what an E code means?

I got E1510 and P0303 on the autozone scanner. P0303 is cylinder 3 misfire and I don't know what the E code means. I know P1510 is idle speed control valve but I know it said E on the scan tool. Any ideas??

Hey everyone, I just got the p0313 and p1093. I was wondering if anyone else ever had these codes and if its just a simple o2 sensor? Thanks

I guess i should have started my own post about the misfire. However I replaced my fuel filter yesterday and the problem went away. I will give it a few days to see if any codes reappear.

P0000 is usually the code that exists when everything works. Kinda like an -All Pass- report.

I just found out that my car was spitting out the P0070 code, which is an Ambient Air Temperature Sensor Circuit issue. Can anyone tell me what the part number is and where it is located so I can check whether or not I can salvage the existing part? Thanks, and oh pictures of where it is would be a GREAT help.
