I am a mechanic working on a 1995 BMW 318i V.I.N. 4usccc7327sla02269 which has an erratic idle and off idle surge with a check engine light on.
I tried to retrieve the codes by turning the key on and cycling the throttle 5 times and nothing happens. My scanner equipment is not programmed for this vehicle. I don't work on this old of a vehicle too much. The Mitchell program I'm using doesn't address this situation, so I need the codes to proceed.
Can I retrieve the codes any other way?
