  2. http://www.autobulbsdirect.co.uk/bmw-5-series-saloon-2001-y Half Halfords price.
  3. No. I have already replaced that with no success. I'm after the in dash control unit below the audio head unit.
  4. Hi, Is the air con control unit available please? I think mine is draining the battery as the air sampling fan runs continuously.
  5. This is virtually the problem I have but there seems to be no solution.
  6. Hi, Rincewind and Piper, already has new hedgehog. Gavin, Lokked in car after a couple days parked in garage and gear selector light is on. Before pulling fuse 9 current is around 3 amps after reinsert current is .4. While fuse is out gear selector light is on, also reinserting fuse activates a relay but difficult to identify where. Thanks to all David
  7. Fuse 9 supplies air conditioner according to chart
  8. Hi I have a '97 540 which drains the battery inside of a week. Have been testing amp readings in glove box and on fuse 9 I have .4 amps and the little fan on the climate control panel does not seem to stop at all. Also the gearbox indicator ight stays on. Any suggestions and solutions gratefully received. Thanks David. Been searching for wiring diagrams on the net without luck.
  9. Hi, How much for a thermostat for '97 e39 540 please. Also fjord grey touch up paint and spray. Thanks
  10. Started to take off thermostat today and found a plug not connected to socket on thermostat housing. I assume its a sensor for something to do with temperature, what? Thanks for replies so far.
  11. Recently bought a 97 540 on ebay a bit risky as it has a couple of issues. One it does not come up to temperature on the gauge, about one third instead of halfway. Previous owner replaced thermostat there is evidence it has been done. He says he was told the sender may be faulty, have just replaced it and no change. Set heating to max and temp drops to edge of blue sector. After 10 mile run fan sounds to be fully engaged when engine reved. If electrical could it be linked to abs light always on, that is the second issue. Again previous owner says abs light came on after going through a puddle he seems to think rear sensor passenger side. Any ideas please?
  12. Have a look at the how to guide, its easy to do with ignition key and trip mileage rest button. It must be because I can di it!
  13. I am firmly in the lpg camp having done nearly 40000 miles in 4 years. Average 25 mpg. Only problem at last gas service was the injectors had clogged up after being cleaned its running as good as ever. Having read v8 warrior excellent work I understand why the cost of having it done is fairly high.
  14. You don't have an iPhone?.... He's not the only one. I don't have one either. They're overrated. Nor do I. This forum is much more useful.
  15. Quidco have their own comparison, they quoted my 540 cheaper than swiftcover, usually the cheapest for me, all the quotes offer cashback usually between £20 to £30. Maybe worth a look.
