    Cable shack diagnostic sofrware

    Also looks like you are using winkfp. Use inpa like konzo suggested.

    Cable shack diagnostic sofrware

    The software from cable shack works on windows 7 only. If your putting it on windows 10 email jimmy at cable shack and ask for the updated vmplayer neeed for proper installation. Otherwise it will not work properly. If you did this already they post up some screen shots of your desktop and apps. When installed properly you should have a cable shack icon on the desktop click that and it will show all the bmw tools. Inpa, dis etc.

    Vanos symptoms

    The VANOS barings are noisey and I have a noticeable hesitation between 900 - 1500 revs.

    Vanos symptoms

    I am planning on doing the same and was going to purchase the same set. The X8R has been recommended on many forums and I have not read anything negative about them. But as I have not done them yet my opinion might just be academic.

    Smg steering wheel

    Thanks for the link I am going to purchase that cable when I get the wheel and slip ring. Makes it really simple. Reason I fancy doing this is that I test drove an e61 with paddles and thought that this would be great for the e39.

    Lamba test in inpa

    I have not checked the fuel trims from cold start but that is a good idea will do that tomorrow morning. I am am not sure it’s fuel related as I changed out the injectors and swopped round the coils to no effect. Missfire happens 1 or 2 minutes after starting. So when it goes into closed loop. Turning off and turning will solve the missfire but only after it has warmed up.

    Lamba test in inpa

    Had a look and found all three of these where perished. Swopped them out for replacements from Cotswold. Sadly no change
  15. Interested in the digital tv do you know if it has had the stage 1 or stage 2 upgrade from Baris? Meaning it has the fully integrated button functions.
