I had my battery replaced on my 2000 323i E46 M52TUB25 and this code came up, p1519 as vague description and nobody post a stright answer for it, if you didn't replace the head gasket, or any work on the VANOS unit, replace the camshaft position sensor A (CPS) the one under the vanos solenoidat front of the engine, it should take care of the light.

Also these systems run a vanos unit that changes timing on the intake cam via oil pressure could be a gummed up unit or your timing guids could be warn alowing that side to not be where it should be but the computer will compensate allowing it to run... hope this helps....
