1995 BMW 540i 4.0L trans program VIN: WBAHE6328S
The codes 30,32,33,2, and 104 always came back on every road test after the software upgrade by the BMW dealer. Remembering the post I got from Pat from CA I did a pin out again (nervous personal adversion of blaming control units) of those 3 shift solenoinds ...

2000 Volkswagen Beetle GL 1.8L MIL Lamp on VIN: 3VWCD21CC2
Thanks to the 17 replies on this problem. Most said to check for water contamination in air pump and valves which can lock the pump and blow the fuse. Most replies also said to check the vacuum hoses for cracks and that is what we found wrong. We replaced four... Trouble codes: 16795 (sec air injection).
