Default N20 328i Need assistance with error codes - 03-24-2020, 04:28 AM


Please advise what the following codes are telling us about the vanos
13E201 suspected vanos fault
3F2012 suspected vanos fault

I do know it is indicatingthat there is an issue with it. Any ideas on how to pin point the problem with the vanos?

When you clear the codes it comes right back up?

If i clear while the car is off it starts normal but the error comes back within a few seconds. If i then try clearing I cant do so, it just keeps throwing the fault

So I tested the vanos actuators today and they seem to fine
