Engine malfunction, reduced power, DSC, DBC, FTM deactivated!
Jumped in the car this morning, pushed the start button....engine makes a feeble attempt at starting before dying. Suddenly a plethora of warning lights light up the instrument cluster and the messages mentioned displayed on the iDrive screen.
I then turned the car off and tried again. Same story three more times. On the next try the car started up normally. I searched the Check Control for error messages but there were none...it was as though nothing had happened.
The car is going into the service dept in the morning for diagnosis.
I did a search on M3Post and this has affected a number of cars. There is a service bulletin out on the issue and it seems to point towards a clogged idle control valve.
Have any Australian E9x M3 owners experienced this fault?
