BMW flash code

Procedure for Acquiring Flash Codes from your BMW
Instructions by Ben Thongsai, bimmers.com, inc.
Note: Your BMW must have Motronic version 1.1 or higher. Motronic 1.0
cars do not have self diagnostic flash code capability (as evidenced by the
lack of a Check Engine light).
I. Determine which version of the Motronic is in your BMW by
consulting the DME Application Guide (or see table below).
II. Sit in the driver's seat.
III. Turn the igntion to the On position, but do not start the car.
IV. Immediately depress the accelerator fully and release fully 5 times
in quick succession.
V. Wait a couple of seconds.
VI. The Check Engine light will flash once, then start to blink. All codes
are comprised of 4 digits. The number of blinks corresponds to the
fault code. For example, ON, pause, ON ON, pause, ON ON, pause,
ON ON, off would be a 1222.
VII. Each four digit code will be flashed sequentially. When the codes
start to repeat, all stored codes have been displayed.
VIII. Turn the ignition Off.
