Help with fault codes!

Please help!

I have a cherished 2003 MCS with Ray West Tuning mods (supercharger pulley/remap).

I've owned it 2.5 years and its been fantastic, until earlier this week the engine starting misbehaving. Two warning lights on the dash came on (traction and exhaust something or other), and is not running smoothly at all.

I took it to a local garage ( i dont trust the BMW dealer, plus I'm concerned they may wipe my remap from the ECU) who have found the following fault codes

P0108
P0113
P1237

They have been unable to remove the codes, so the lights are still on. Can anyone tell me what sensors need replacing to sort this out?

I love this little car and really want to get it back to normal.

Thanks

Thanks for the reply. My local garage was able to indentify the codes and descriptions, but was unsure what sensors needed replacing. Specifically, P0108 didn't seem to relate to anything.

Can anyone shed any light on what needs doing to clear all these fault codes, or at least get the car running properly and removing the warning lights from the dashboard!

Ok, got the car fixed today. Fault code P0108 doesnt seem to related to any sensor and cant be cleared but have had new sensors relating to P0113 and P1237, which has sorted the problem. No more warning lights on the dash and it runs perfectly.

Hi ya

P0108 is your TMAP or MAP sensor
I had a fault with mine and it was the TMAP (it's on your intake manifold between the rad and intercooler) it was a bad connector took it off cleaned the plug job done. My mate had the same problem turned out it was the sensor. It can be tested if you have a code reader or computer

Just got a PO599 from my local garage checking, the list says "Thermostat Heater Control Circuit High" but my "local" dealer says they can't translate that to anything to be sure parts are in hand. They don't use PO codes anymore??
