    Hi, I'm trying to help a friend sort out what the issue is with her E90 325xi. It's out of warranty for mileage (100K plus), and she got a check engine light that posted P1553 with an OBD2 code reader. I have an E39 and the Bentley manual that goes with MY car, but P1553 isn't one of the listed codes in the E39 books.

    Can anyone help out - someone with the Bentley for the E90 perhaps? I'm looking for what the code 'means' as best as anyone can tell me.

    Thanks!

    I think the best thing to do is take the car to BMW dealer or a independent garage, so they can check the car, BMW DTCs are a little complicate just only to check with a OBD II reader.


    Good Luck

    generic OBD2 readers can be useless on a BMW. Go to an independent garage and see what they find.
