P0030 BMW - HO2S 11 Heater Control Circuit...Possible causes; Faulty Heated Oxygen Sensor (H2OS) Bank 1 Sensor 1 circuit, Heated Oxygen Sensor (H2OS) Bank 1 Sensor 1 circuit fuse, Heated Oxygen Sensor (H2OS) Bank 1 Sensor 1 circuit open shorted to ground, Heated Oxygen Sensor (H2OS) Bank 1 Sensor 1 circuit poor electrical connection, Faulty Engine Control Module (ECM)...The code means that there is a problem with the heater element circuit of the heated oxygen sensor. The control module monitors how long it take the sensor to warm up and start sending an adequate signal. The code is triggered when the sensor is taking too long to warm up. Water getting inside the heated oxygen sensor connector can caused the heated oxygen sensor fuse to blow. Before replacing the sensor, check for the condition of the heated oxygen sensor fuse and connectors. If the sensor and connector are OK, replacing the O2 Sensor 1 usually takes care of the problem.
