    2010 F10 530D SE AUTO
  1. any idea which fuse number it was? I recently replaced fuse 54 on my car when there was no power to the cigarette light sockets-it was 20 amp blade fuse behind the glovebox
  2. Thanks for this very useful info!
  3. thanks ,does anyone have an info on how to change the glow plug control module as i cannot find much info on this on the internet?
  4. the car is 2010 F10 530d with the N57 engine I did a Carly diagnostic check and got the following fault code: DTC Code: 28CE00-Receive LIN-bus communication of the glow plug GSG i erased the code but it came back after a short drive could someone help with interpretation? I have no engine mil/cel lights on and the car drives well .
  5. Diagnostic software

    the Carly Gen 2 adaptor for Android is on amazon for 43.
  6. Diagnostic software

    the Carly generation 2 Wi-Fi adaptor for iPhone will cost you £57.30 from amazon delivered and the Carly lite app is free from the app store-this is a basic app which only allows one free diagnostic report is a taster to buy the buy the carly pro app. if you get the Carly pro app which can do coding from app store it will cost £44 so the total investment is around £100 if you want diagnostics and coding from Carly. I suppose if you use it one or twice it would pay for itself. ps-the vcds is a fantastic tool for vw,audi,skoda and seat.!
  7. I always do a yearly oil and filter change regardless of mileage covered but never reset the service indicator unless its flags up on i-drive. Also did the the same on my previous e39 530d as well for many years.
  8. update -I gave my indy garage 6.5 litres of Castrol edge 0w30 for an oil service and the oil level on i-drive now reads max but is half way between the min and max mark on the dipstick. so it appears the total oil capacity is indeed 7 litres and that is also what my indy said after looking on cardata .
  9. so I think it will be 6.5 litres.
  10. i see your car is an E61 2004 530 sport -would 7 litres be correct for the F10 model?
  11. The car is a F10 530d 2010 model. What is the engine oil capacity for this car as I am planning to do an oil service.? (the Castrol oil website says 6.5litres and the mobil one says 7litres)
  12. Trickle charger

    i always use the ctek mx5.0 charger on the jumpstart points in the engine bay on my f10 car. it is a great piece of kit which I bought off ebay
  13. that was good info. the old school light came on today and a warning on the dash/drive to drive at moderate speeds have booked in for rear pad change tomorrow.
