The engine may run rough or hesitate when accelerating from a stationary position. Fault code FC 21A02D (combustion control, valve lift correction when at idle) may be stored in the DME memory.

A software error in the DME (digital motor electronics) may be the cause. Update the vehicle software using ISTA 4.27.10 or higher. Always connect a BMW-approved battery charger/power supply when performing programming.
