thank you for such explanation but at this moment my biggest problem is to understand why i have so many errors at once and i cant drive without a beeping every 2 seconds.



That's not reflected in the number of error codes you posted!

When the car beeps what messages come up on the central screen? I suspect you may have an EGR valve and an ABS sensor fault.

You're going to need a comprehensive diagnostic readout as your elm unit will only read the engine ecu Pxxxx codes.

small update. i was able to disassemble the steering wheel. inside there is this connector that brings wires for horn/air bag/cruise control.
I opened this device and re-positioned one of the wheels inside (i guess we can call it sensor wheel) and after re-installing into place the majority of errors/faults got silent.
still have the egr issue and the suspension error, but all the other errors and beeping complaints went away.
BTW, the buzzer is inside of this thing, so if anyone wants to remove it or tape it to sound less annoying... now you know where to look.
while playing this problem i have discovered "new following problems:

1 - the steering wheel column is not going up and down (sometimes makes a very shy tick noise when pressing button but no movement)

2 - the air in tires sensor i dont know how to pair them to car (none works)

maybe someone knows where i can find threads about this

You can't "pair" them, they are hard coded in the TPS ECU with Diagbox. If none are working it may be because the TPS ECU has been removed from the BSI configuration. Again, Diagbox is required to re-enable it.
