    Camsaft Position sensor code P1519 e39 528i

    I replace the Camshaft Pos. Sensor on my 97 528i, and reset/cleared the P1519 code but it continues to come back on after the second trip. appox 15-20 miles. Do i have to take this model to the Stealership to have the system reprogram?

    Where did you buy the sensor? Is it a BMW part? There have been many reports of bad aftermarket sensors.

    Well, if it has the Roundel on it, probably okay.

    The P1519 code may be pointing to the VANOS Solenoid. See #3 in the ROEM diagram.
    http://www.realoem.com/bmw/showparts...80&hg=11&fg=15

    Check and clean the solenoid's connector.

    Cam Shaft position sensor update.. the CPS was installed with out the O-ring.. I bought one at the Stealership for $7.89(F'n dollars...) it cost $1.25 on line (what a rip-off) but needed to get the car smog today due to tags expiering.

    The CEL came back on... gust i need to trouble shoot the Vanos o-ring I could not take if off when I removed the CPS. (yes you can remove the CPS without taking off the Vanos cylinder)
    The Vonos Cylinder is very tight may have been over tighten by P/O.. and the o-ring smashed. I'll take the car to my local auto shop so they can loosen the Vanos for me. I dont have a 32mm socket.. and it looks like its striped..by the P/O.

    I'll post my result as soon as i get them..

    bad o ring in vanos seal is bad

    you have a bad o ring seal in your vanos. the seal is bad and that is why your getting a check engine light on. Its a 4 hour job and I'm not sure how much the parts are going to be.

    Vonos Seal

    I just replace the Vonos seal two week ago due to having the P1519 OBD code. but it did not clear the code. It made my car's performance 10x better. I just check to see if the CPS is getting any power 12vdc by useing my metter and no power on any of the leads. waiting for the weeken to remove the intake manifold to check the wire harness.

    Hopefully I find a short and not need to replace the DME.

    I've been dealing with the same P1519 code. One of the problems you're having is that it's the camshaft position actuator, not the sensor. The actuator is the VANOS itself. So you probably bought a CPS for nothing. Ah well, it's new...

    Replacing the VANOS seals should clear the code if you did a good job and if the solenoid is functioning properly. You can check solenoid operation by removing it and putting 12V and a ground wire to the plug connector. The little rod in the solenoid should pop out if it's working properly.

    Have you cleared the code with a code reader? The code usually won't go away automatically. Even if you did clear it, you may still have the code in the computer memory ("pending") but it won't come back as current if the problem is fixed and doesn't resurface.

    P1519 code

    I tried everything you listed before changing the Vanos Seal.. been reading up on this now just need time to check the wire harness..
    looks like it may still may not have been updated by the past R.O. due to the recall.. (Crankshaft sensor and wire harness update from 5vdc to 12vdc)

    Still after all the work I put into this car has been worth IT.. This E39 528I run better then my friend 2008 740I.

    now I dont have to worry about the VONOS Seal and other sensor for some time..and the car runs great.
    Just have the CEL ON ALL THE TIME.. and the P1519 code.

    I check the Camshaft P.S voltage it read 3.8 volt with the car off.

    I beleave it should be 11-12VDC If it hade the updated wire harness and 528UI CRANK P.S. (recall)

    Im just confuse on one thing Is it the CRANK-SHAFT P.S. that need to bee 12v or the CAM-Shaft P.S that need 12v.
