    Hi, i have had the engine light on for a couple of weeks now so i decided to plug in a peake fcx3 tool to find the codes, the results were :
    7d(coolant fan final stage),
    EA(Catalyst efficiency below threshold Cyl 4-6),
    E9(Catalyst efficiency below threshold Cyl 1-3).
    The car seems to be running fine so should i be worried or does have anyone have a solution to these probs ?
    Thanks.

    What code table were these on?

    Initially it sounds like you have a air leak and a thermostat fault.

    Hi Ronnie thanks for your reply. The code table is 15 and i have had a new thermostat housing fitted by a bmw specialist about 4 weeks ago. Cheers. Jason.
