BMW Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
hello and welcome
this warning simply menas that a fault has been sensed by the engine computer.
it is not specific to any one thing, and can be triggered by dozens and dozens of different faults.it could be a simple sensor having gone bad, or something far more catastrophic
the only way to know for sure what is triggering the warning will be to have the vehicle scanned with a BMW scan tool.
the likely cause is something related to the fuel system (fuel pump, injectors, etc) but there is no way to know without a scan
I would strongly advise you to invest in a full, professional pre-purchase inspection prior to buying, and definitely not buy unless/until this issue is resolved.

turbo, starter and fuel pump failures are common at this mileageif it happens to be an auto box, that could also be problematicfinally, the cooling system and suspension will probably be in need of a refresh soonyou can try your code reader, it may or may not pull codes in this case.Please do not forget to leave a positive rating as this is the only way I receive credit for my time and answer, thank you. please consider rating me as 5 STAR!!
