  1. Hi! I don't know if you're still active but I wanted to ask you something about K-Bus in e39.

    My AC compressor is not getting power and when I do the diagnostics it shows an IKE K-Bus error 87 same as you posted. I unmounted the glovebox and I think I found the K-Bus but I'm not sure. Is it on the left side of all the cables (closer to the drivers seat) within a black box (cover) near others black boxes or covers ?? Its hard to reach and I want to be sure what I'm unmounting. Thanks a lot!

    02 525d - Not keen on starting... :(

    I had the same symptoms and also was only able to start the car with Easystart. Turned out to be a leaky injector, bought a leak off kit for around £30 to work out which one was at fault.

    What did you do to your E60/61 today?

    The readout supplied is from the Hunter 4 wheel alignment machine, same type Kwik Fit uses. For some reason it's not compatible with the front top left measurement of the E60/1. I have the same read out from my recent alignment, front camber displaying red, all others green and queried it at the time.

    Looks like you've been very lucky and picked up an E60 with Active Cruise Control. (That's the radar bit)

    Help..on holiday ..burst E39 rear airbag....

    Happend to me in France earlier this year. The inlet valve on the bag may be too small to get anything in. Tried to upload a pic, but on my phone and thwarted by the dumb 0.4mb size restriction. The valve is around 1cm in diameter only. I wouldn't suggest driving it if it's fully deflated, it'll rub as soon as you try to go over a speed bump and the stability is seriously impaired. If you can't get it recovered I'd suggest picking up a replacement bag.

    which obd2 tool for dpf Regen?

    About a year ago, Carly released a new module for DPF regeneration. You should now be aable to force this regardless of whether it's currently blocked or not.

    Auto Transmission fluid recommendations

    Mackies in Glasgow have been recommended for gearbox servicing. Personally, I drove from Dunfermline to Preston to visit Automatic Transmissions. Was very happy with the service. Not that far from Ayrshire, quick jaunt down the M74/M6 then a fun drive back with your newly serviced gearbox.

    What did you do to your E60/61 today?

    That's really helpful. I've got a long running saga with no radio reception, was thinking of buying the Kufatech dab module but wasn't sure if used the existing antennas. Decision made.

    Carly question

    Carly doesn't support activating aux. http://support.mycarly.com/knowledge-base/code-bmw-what-is-possible/ You'll need ncs expert to do this which you'll need to run on your laptop not phone. If Carly is connecting to the car, what makes you think it's not able to read from the CCC? Can you read other modules?

    Any idea if the Dab Module uses any of the existing antennas on the car or does it have it's own?
