    Btw e39 525i cuts out....

    I have tried a new MAD meter and still the engine runs for 5 mins and dies...... Is it worth checking the fuel filter? Thanks

    Hi, I am still not any closer to solving this issue. What else do these code referee to and where do I start looking...? Thsnks

    The fuel pressure I think is normal. Once the engine is running it sounds and acts normal even under high revs.

    Btw e39 525i cuts out....

    Hi, today I checked the fuel pump relay, which is situated in the back compartment where the battery sits. The relay looked ok. I gently dismantled it and noticed some carbon deposits on the contacts. Using a fine wet and dry paper I cleaned up the carbon deposits. The relay was ok and fuses were ok too.... The car started first time no issues..... but, only ran for about 5 mins before engine stopped. Not sure what else to look for..... I know that the fuel filter could be replaced, but could that cause this issue? Thanks Note..... even with the relay jumped so the pump is on constant.... the engine still didn't start....

    You know that's exactly what my thoughts are.... the fuel pump. I can't understand why the car would stop just like that, even after replacing the crank shaft and cam shaft sensors the engine stops. I will check fuel pump relay and the fuel pump too. Thank you ..

    Yeah I purchased a new cam shaft sensor and installed it. So we have a new crankshaft sensor and cam shaft sensor..... Still not working right....

    UPDATE..... OK, So I have changed the crank shaft sensor and I have just replaced the camshaft sensor. I start the car and it runs. Starts ok, no issues. The engine runs for 5mins and then dies. No fault lights etc.  I then try to start the car but I can't. It's almost like when the engine warms up it stops. Anything else anyone can suggest please?  Thank you

    UPDATE Yesterday I did the school run. I tried starting the car but it would not start. Cut a long story short, I had the car towed home. The car started and ran fine for about 5 minutes then the engine cut out. Starting the car was an issue. Remember, a few weeks ago I changed the crankshaft sensor and the car was fine. Today, I checked the crankcase sensor and there was no damage to it. The resistance from pin 1 & 2 was normal.... between 400 to 500 ohms. There is fuel in the line and it's pressurised etc and there is fuel in the car too. So, what else can I be looking for that could be causing the issue.? I will be checking the MAF and the camshaft sensor too.... Any suggestions greatly appreciated. Thanks

    The issue is that some connectors look alike and will fit various sensors etc, even though they are incorrect. What I need ideally is information on the wires, colours etc.... Thanks

    Thank you for your reply. What happened was that I removed the intake manifold to do some work. When I replaced the intake manifold I reconnected the cables. I think I have put the wrong connector on the wrong sensor. Can you tell me where the location for the sensor is located that refers to the error please? Thanks
  15. Hi, I need some help here please. I connected my computer to the car and read the error codes. These are the error codes- A, P1622 - POWERTRAIN (MAP cooling circuit, electrical) B, P0443 - Evaporate Emission control system purge control valve circuit. can anyone guide me on I can solve this matter? I would like to know how I can check the MAP sensor and it's location. Any help much appreciated. Oh, forgot to say, my car is a bmw 540i automatic. Thanks
