    Tried out my new BimmerTool code reader today and got engine fault code 242200.

    I can't find out what this means - anyone know?



    thanks

    That’s not a recognised BMW code, so would probably need converting. Nothing in the menu to translate this one?

    Thanks for this. BTool Report says:
    242200 Glühstift Zylinder 1, Ansteuerung: Glühstiftwiderstand ausserhalb Spezifikation

    (Can't get it to say in english but looks a bit similar))

    I'm tempted to find fault with your plugging Google with such a glowing recommendation, but I won't. :rotate:

    Best of friends with Google translate and deepl.
