Customer Question

My service engine soon light came on. How do I reset it?
JA: Do you have the trouble code? Do you have a code reader or scan tool?
Customer: Guy and shop said the code came back as the 02 sensor. However, he didn't seem to sure.
JA: I'll pass this info along to the BMW Mechanic so that he can get you a quick fix. What is the model/year of your BMW?
Customer: 2009 328i
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: yes - nothing. It happened once before when my daughter drove my car and didn't put the gas cap on correctly.
