Need help on fault codes (Peake reader)

I purchased a Peake R5/FCX(3) code/reset tool for my 2001 325i. I have reset the "service engine" light a couple times and get the following codes:

1) 19 - Ignition Coil Cyl #1 or PreCat 02 sensor heater insufficient, cyl #1-3

2) A8 - Idle speed actuator (open)

I'd appreciate any insight into if there is anything I can do to fix these items.

I hope you don't mind me correcting how you read your fault code. You made a mistake interpreting your code, it should have been go to Table 19 then the code is A8. A8 according to our peake research fault code is a "Coolant thermostat jammed or stucked open".
I have the same problem, I will take it to the Dealer because I bought an extended warranty on my car and it's still covered.
