BMW Scanner 1.4 will tell you what's wrong.
Buy it now. $40 will save you a lot of headaches in the future.

Most likely culprit is the fuel pump / fuel pump relay. Swap it with the horn relay and see if that does anything.

You're going to need to provide us with a lot more information. As someone else mentioned, the fuel pump could be the culprit, or it could be a hundred other things. Walk us through the stall and anything you tried to troubleshoot. Any idea on the nature of some of these 35 codes? Maybe also try a more competent mechanic?

Reset the codes and see what comes up again.

And of course, post the codes.

Yeah, seriously..

Are we supposed to telepathically connect to your DME?

Take a legible pic or multiple pics of the 35 errors on the diagnostic report that the mechanic performed and upload them here. Until you do this there's not much anyone can offer.

How much gas was in the car? Mileage? What are the specific codes? My guess would be a camshaft sensor, so when it made the car stall it added codes for all six cylinders misfiring and other related codes.


No codes, no help lol. Can't play the guessing game
