How to get the diagnostic codes? (Does not work on all models)

  1. Sit in the driver's seat.
  2. Turn the ignition to the On position, but do not start the engine up.
  3. Immediately depress the accelerator fully and release fully 5 times quickly.
  4. Wait for a few seconds and you will see the Check Engine light flash once, then start it will start to blink. All codes are comprised of 4 digits. The number of blinks corresponds to the fault code. For example, ON then pause, ON ON then pause, ON ON ON ON then pause, ON ON ON then off would be a 1243.
  5. Each four digit code will be flashed sequentially. When the codes start to repeat, all stored codes have been displayed.
  6. Turn the ignition off and check the codes with the table below. 1444 and 2444 means no problem and that is what you hope to find! Good luck!
  7. If this does not work on your model (will only work on some earlier models), you would need the BMW Peake Research Fault Code Reset Tool which is available right here on Bimmerzone.com
