However, I found that I also receive the following two errors at a > 65000 frequency - 9D44 SINE: Alarm memory: voltage-supply tampering and 9D46: SINE: Alarm memory: DWA bus, short circuit to ground. Some battery cap cable and the PCV valve heater was replaced in a recall on January 2019 in a BMW dealership, after which these symptoms started. Also, every couple of seconds the rpm and the speed go to zero and spike back up, The airbag sytmbol for the defective Airbag on the right door come also on, every time the odometer goes to zero, as if the central display units resets itself The display unit halso has >65000 errors … read more
