Customer Question
Ive got a 2011...

Ive got a 2011 335 xi coupe manual 6spd and the check engine light came on with a reduced power warning. ANy idea what this could be?

Mechanic's Assistant: Does the light stay on, or does it blink?

Stays on until you turn the car off. I can get it to come back on if I get on the throttle aggressively. The service engine soon light however stays lit

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Coupe yourself? What have you tried so far?

I am not. I just bought the car so Im a little concerned

Hello, and thank you for your question.

Have you scan the car with an OBD2 scanner?

Not yet.
BMW Mechanic: internal88, BMW Mechanic replied 9 months ago

You have to scan the car first because we can diagnose the problem.

It could be throttle or the coils.
