    97 535i running like poo lately (Carsoft errors)

    My 535i has been very sluggish lately, stalling at random times, sluggish to change gears and generally being a pig to drive, so i plugged in my trusty Carsoft 6.5 thingamjig and found about 20 errors
    including

    213 Knock Sensor
    112 Signal Camshaft Position sensor
    40 Gas valve : Potentiometer error
    22 Transmission fluid temp sensor
    106 MUX injectino rate
    91 Gong Ton (T2)
    C7 Fuel tank sensor 1 (Fuel pump side)
    38 Gas-valve Adjustment error


    I am just about to do an order from Pelican parts because the Australian dollar is really good at the moment. Apart from a camshaft sensor what else should i be ordering?????????????

    Happy new year to you all

    With all those errors I'd check the battery (m)

    to make sure it's above 12 volts to make sure all those errors aren't being caused by low voltage.
    Did you clear all of them to see which ones come back?
    Cam sensor is always good to have. Good luck.

    New battery 6 months ago

    The battery was replaced about 6 months ago, i might recheck the earths etc.

    is there a resource somewhere which explains the errors further?


    Cheers

    See if you can get a users manual at their website: http://www.carsoftinternational.com/


    Try and get the Carsoft code converted to a standard code and look it up at sites like this:
