  2. Hi Stu, I did reply to your question on the facia on my post, you may not have seen it............ This is the facia one that I bought in the end... https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/DFP-06-00-BMW-5-SERIES-E39-1996-2003-CD-RADIO-DOUBLE-DIN-FACIA-FASCIA-SURROUND/112509533915?hash=item1a32173edb:g:0u4AAOSweD9amcd6:rk:3:pf:0 I wasn't expecting much, but it turned out better than I thought. The alpine unit is really light, I simply attached the facia to the stereo and pushed into the hole, its really tight and a snug fit. It is simply wedged in place, I have had it there for 8 months now and no signs of moving. Carl.

    ABS/DSC module HELP

    Thank you, I have ordered that one. Is £60 a fair price for someone to code it to my car? I have INPA on my laptop, but not NCS.

    Doubt i'll get one much cheaper. Looking online they seem to go £600 odd

    ABS/DSC module HELP

    BBA have come back and said the unit is un-repairable....ffs They can get a part from Bosch for another £420 on top of the £200 ive already payed them, and that will still need coding as well. I don't have that kind of money at the moment so I'm screwed.

    ABS/DSC module HELP

    I ended up sending the part to BBA last week, got it back on Friday plugged it back and erased the code with INPA, DCS light was out all good.... Driving home last night the DSC light came back on, so plugged the laptop in again turned the ignition on and ALL three lights came on this time Brake, ABS and DSC....ffs. Looked at the error codes in INPA. Chassis - DSC bit.. 59 DMER1 CAN error 91 Steering angle sensor 58 Gearbox control unit CAN error Engine bit.. 130 CAN timeout ASC I then switched it all off to come back to it later. When I plug it all back in now INPA will not communicate with the ABS/DSC, it sais issue with control unit? Can anybody help with why INPA cant talk to the DSC unit?? Is it worth sending the module back to BBA?? Thank you.

    ABS/DSC module HELP

    Has anybody had their ABS module repaired successfully and have a recommendation on the firm. I have the DSC warning light on, read the codes - 'error 88 pre-charge pump' was listed, after looking at the internet for solutions 100% of what I read led to the module being the failure and not the pump. Current ones i've seen and heard of before..... http://www.ecutesting.com/catalogue/bmw_eculist.html?category=4047&model=462 http://www.bba-reman.com/gb/content.aspx?content=bmw_bosch_abs_pumps Thank you.
