    2002 525i PDC Problem

    Hey lads, looking for a bit of help here with my PDC. It was never working when I bought the car due to some bad sensors and the front speaker being unplugged. Recently I finally decided to go at it, sorted the speaker and replaced the 4 Sensors up front and two in the rear, the middle two rear were replaced last year as part of bodywork. Now the weird issue. When the engine is on the sensors seem to go mad, the front ones mainly, always seem to cut in on the rears for some reason. Yet with the just the ignition on and the gearbox in R they work perfectly? You can go around to each sensor with your hand and it detects the space perfectly, start the car and then they go mad again! So any ideas? PDC module at fault and needing replacement? Overvoltage maybe? I'm getting no faults on Carly for BMW.

    So, I fixed this yesterday, engine fuse inside the glovebox was blown........They were supposed to have been checked.....

    Will ask them to check this, thanks! We disabled the Auto Box's lock so that it would be able to start in any mode but still wouldn't. Put a new battery in today as the current one was only holding 5.8V or so, still no kick unfortunately

    Alright lads, having a problem with my E39, it won't start at all. All the lights come on, everything works, just won't turn over. Had INPA hooked up to check the keys and the passwords are being read, we can talk to both the ECU and EWS, took off the auto lock to see if that was the problem and today installed a new battery as the other one was at 5.8V! No luck with the battery fixing it though. Any ideas?

    What to look for in a Touring?

    History is up to 100K, seems well cared for bar some body scuffs, how much would the overhaul cost, roughly?

    What to look for in a Touring?

    How's it going lads, I'm looking at buying a 2001 520i Manual Touring SE in the next week or so and wanted to know what I should look for? I've done some basic checks myself like looking for Diff leaks, valve cover gasket leaks and Electronic problems. Everything that I checked seemed to be fine and working, anything else I should be looking for? It's got 130k Miles on the clock.
