  1. You need this:- https://www.nulon.com.au/products/aerosols/start-ya-bastard-instant-engine-starter
  2. I’d have this off you in a heartbeat if you were in New South Wales. GLWS.
  3. E60 phone and bluetooth questions

    Eject the cradle/adapter and turn it over and read the sticker on the bottom. it should say the phone it is for. If not , put the part number into your googlizer and go from there.. The cradle is for charging and depending on the phone, to use the car’s external aerial. The phone still uses Bluetooth for calls/connection regardless of whether it’s in the cradle or not. So in answer to your question, no, you can only use one phone in the car at a time.
  4. wheel alignment camber toe with weights?

    I’m not sure if a Specialist would have access to buy it, but the Beissbarth KDS machine that BMW Dealers use does indeed compensate for and change the target data once the ride heights are entered so weighting the car is no longer necessary. Also, when weighting the car and measuring the heights, if they’re within +/-10mm of the spec, you are then meant to adjust (add or remove) weights until the the heights is within +/-2mm of spec before carrying out the alignment. Very few people ever do this........
  5. Steering wheel fitment help

    The ribbon cable shouldn’t have come out of the slip ring. Remove the lower steering column trim and you’ll find the wiring plugs.
  6. What did you do to your E39 today ?

    Yes, although you’ll need some adapters to hold the Xenon bulbs into the H7 housing. https://m.ebay.co.uk/itm/2X-Replacement-H7-Xenon-HID-Bulb-Holder-Adapters-for-BMW-E39-3-Series/191995898533?hash=item2cb3d8eaa5:g:wtYAAOSwpLNYAMTI

  8. e39 530d auto manual

    I converted an E46 330ci to manual and had absolutely everything working except mirror dip in reverse. I found that the wire from the instrument cluster that appeared in all the wiring diagrams for both auto and manual wasn’t actually there. Fitted the wire and Hey Presto!

    The wire to the DME from the reverse light switch is just a pass through for ease of wiring on the production line. Check that you have the Green/Violet wire fitted that goes from pin 19 of the DDE to pin 25 on X10114 of the IKE.
  10. Brake Flexi Pipes

    I’ve just fitted a set of these to my E39 as my rear hoses looked like this:- i also had Liam make the additional mid pipes near the DSC unit that go to the rear brakes. He responded quickly and they arrived to Australia within a week. Quality is spot on and interestingly the hoses had HEL embossed on them rather than the WM in the pics although they had the WM on the extra loose sheath bit.

    That’s the wiring for a 9/2000+ car. Here are all the wiring diagrams for the various years:- https://www.newtis.info/tisv2/a/en/e39-523i-lim/wiring-functional-info/body/distance-warning/q-A81

    Power supply for the PDC IS FROM THE K72 relay (unloader relay). It should be a RT/GE wire.

    You can also just find an I bus wire and tap into it. And do the same for the power supply.

    Hi Bent, You’re correct, an E39 doesn’t have the fan connectors like an E46, rather soldered connectors. In a LHD The I-Bus connector should be in the loom here:-

    Hi Bent, Those wires go into the same wire colour fan connectors above the fuse box. The WS/GR/GE wire is the K Bus wire. The RT/GE wire is the power supply from the unloader relay. (And sorry for the tardy reply, but with Tapatalk not working, moving house and no WiFi, and time difference in Australia I’m not on the forum as much at the moment.) Good luck, Rosie.
