hello, i have a engine warning light come up on my 2000 reg 318 ci and i looked in the manual for what it meant and all it said is engine emissions and contact you local dealer as soon as possible. so i thought i'd go and ask them but they want £120 just to read the code! so i took it to work and plugged it into the code reader and it has come up saying that the idle air valve is stuck open? and this seems weird because the car runs fine and idles fine. can anybody help on this?
regards stephen

i tried to clear the code but it came back, the light did go out for a couple of days when it was really cold but then came back on. and the car runs fine as far as i can tell.

What was the error code?

which scanner did you use, and can you remember which code it kicked out?
