This bulletin applies to 2017 BMW 330i vehicles equipped with a 2.0L engine, as well as 2 Series, 3 Series, 4 Series, 5 Serie, 6 Series and 7 Series vehicles. The vehicle may run rough or hesitate when accelerating from a stop, and DTC FC 21A02D (combustion control: valve lift correction when at idle) may be stored in the DME fault memory.

This may be due to a software error in the DME (digital motor electronics). Update the vehicle software using ISTA 4.27.10 or higher.
