    E39 Touring radio tuner doesnt work

    My apologies, I assumed your car had the Monitor screen, not the LCD display (MID) The radio unit is the unit that cassettes go into. The LCD (MID) display has to be removed first. https://www.newtis.info/tisv2/a/en/e39-525tds-lim/repair-manuals/65-audio-navigation-information-systems/65-11-radio-cd-dvd-changer/2cJDIjz

    Coding 2nd Hand Light Control Module

    Programmed how? As Clavurion said, it needs the ZCS coded with NCS Expert. It may also need to be set with NCS Dummy rather than BMW Scanner as per AllanW’s posts above.

    Fuel injection pump 525TDS

    There’s a 2nd electric pump (in-line) under the car under the left front seat. It’s more likely your problem than the High Pressure Pump. Also a faulty injector can also cause this.
  10. If your car is built after 9/02 it’s just a matter of plugging in something like this:- https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1PC-Car-3-Pin-3-5mm-Female-Audio-AUX-Input-Adapter-Cable-for-BMW-E39-E46-E53-X5/253376518020?hash=item3afe6ad784:g:TdoAAOSw4DxaYG2k into the plug taped to the loom behind the OBM Screen.

If you see any AC voltage, a diode has failed inside the alternator.

    E39 Touring Air Compressor Woes

    Here’s the factory destruction’s:- https://www.newtis.info/tisv2/a/en/e39-540i-tou/repair-manuals/37-integrated-suspension-systems/37-14-electric-components/DuyEl5f There is a sensor on both sides at the rear and if there’s no fault codes, the more likely problem is burnt points inside the relay that lives in the compressor housing.
