  2. 530d Starting Issue

    I bought 530d with new battery and alternator, supposedly. After a few months got all the stupid dash messages, plus if I left the doors or boot open for 1/2 hr it wouldn't start. Put meter on cigar socket and saw that it sometimes didn't charge for 10m then 15-16v. Seems the new alt was just a paint up with new brushes. Replaced reg and solved charge problem, easy job with alt in situ. However I think the 8month old battery was toast from going flat and getting roasted. Replacement and now all good. Tried disconnect of ibs, didn't help.
  3. New Tyres and handling feels naff

    I used two sets of acceleration on omega wagon with 130bhp and thought they were fine. But on e39 525d they were so dangerous I was afraid to let wife drive cos of the back letting go. They are only useful in the dry.
  4. Has anyone used one of these??

    What is it? Aux?
  5. Blower motor replacement

    I think you can reach in from under the pollen filter! Spin it around and soak with wd40.
  6. Cd changer or media player

    I'm in Dublin.
  7. Cd changer or media player

    Does gateway do Bluetooth phone as well? Factory Bluetooth is very erratic with Sony phone!
  8. Cd changer or media player

    So is the audio on the optic loop and the wires on the connector are 0-12V. Now that cd's are almost extinct what would I expect to pay for a cd changer? or a better suggestion! Annoying , coming from an E39 which had a kenwoood that did everything.
  9. Cd changer or media player

    This is in the glove box with cd written on connection, but only two wires, red, brown. Can't see audio or fibre. Is the cd o/p analogue or optical?
  10. Cd changer or media player

    Thanks, I'll look in glovebox, I presumed it was in the boot.
  11. My vin says cd changer preparation but nothing on idrive menu, is this the audio connection and fibre optic in the boot? Do I need to enable? With inpa?
  12. E60 LCI Auto Transmission Fault!

    Do the clutches not all run in oil???? Contaminated clutch???
  13. Help e39 525tds 1998

    Iirc the problem is wear in the hp pump. In Europe that's probably what the car is worth. I did read that someone fixed it by changing the pump temp sensor. Buy the module and enjoy the car.
  14. Help e39 525tds 1998

    I retired a perfectly good omega wagon because it wouldn't start when hot, I didn't have the solution at the time. Just buy the eBay item. If you map it the automatic transmission will probably die.
  15. Just blank screen, no options. Sony gave me a new Z5 with 32.2.a.2.33 same as before so far, will sometimes connect then disconnects during first call. If it will reconnect it works till next time.
