So Many Cods To Fix Where To Star?!

Alright guys and girls I need your help. For the past week my 2000 323i wagon has been giving me some problems. During regular driving conditions my traction control light will turn on and every other time the EML light will turn on with it. So today I finally got some time and took it down to Advance Auto Parts to get the codes read. Here are the 12 codes I got:

P1250 - fuel air metering
P1397 - ignition system or misfire
P1624 - auxiliary inputs & outputs
P1423 - auxiliary emission controls
P1421 - " "
P0340 - camshaft position sensor A - Bank 1 circuit malfunction
P1188 - fuel air metering
P1189 - " "
P0150 - O2 sensor circuit malfunction (Bank 2 Sensor 1)
P0173 - fuel trim (Bank 2)
P0170 - fuel trim (Bank 1)
P1750 - fuel air metering

Now my question is where the heck do i begin?? I am not big on mechanical skills so afraid most of this is to me. So if you guys could point me in the right direction that would be great. And FYI today I bought 4 brand new tires mounted and balanced and had a fuel system cleaning. Hope this helps and thank you in advance!

Kenny

your MAF could be bad since your getting all the codes having to do with air metering and there a good possibility that the camshaft sensor is bad.

depends on how mechanically inclined you are. and you might want to get it scanned for the bmw codes not just the common OBD2 codes

Would I need to go to BMW for that or are any auto part stores capable of this?

Try replacing the fuel filter and fuel pressure regulator.
