    M5/paddle steering wheel retrofit..

    Philly did you sort your wheel out.. I think you have just got to run wires to gear shift so levers mimick the shifter. If you got it sorted what slip ri g did you use, was just an lci one or lci m5

    Thermo Thermo why do you hate me?

    Hi I have never heard about this. I knew thermostats should be changed to keep engine running at correct temp, but didn't know it affects transmission. I change egr thermostat (that's the easy one at top of engine if I'm right) but have never had the main one changed. I'll have to check what temp car gets to. What are these thermostat mods you speak of. I have alot to learn
  3. Hi all I have a 2004 e60 and was thinking about retrofitting powerfold mirrors. I wasn't aware the mirrors were different sizes. Would it still work if I bought lci mirrors and wiring loom for mirrors and drivers switch. Also I have been wondering is there a switch to turn on the heating element or are they just always

    PDC Fault Diagnosis (Guide)

    Well done. Bet that was very satisfying finding the cable. Can I ask if you unplugged front and rear sensors from the module, so just the power was connected, (which is the bottom one) do you still get a flashing pdc light

    PDC Fault Diagnosis (Guide)

    Hi all. What do you mean by "buzzed the cable" I've had no pdc for 3 years and now I'm determined to get it working I get no clicking from all sensors I did try my bro in laws module from 6 series which worked for about 5 sec and then went back to pdc failure. Worse bit is when I put it back in his car it no longer worked in that, so had to buy him a new module. What I'm wondering if you unplugged front and rear connectors from boot would it still throw a fault if module was good ie would the green light in dash still blink or be static. I don't want to keep buying modules if the car is going to keep blowing them. Car is 2004 e60 530d. I have a multimeter, don't know how to use it really if any ones got any ideas

    Headlight upgrade help guys

    Hi I've done the pre lci to lci halogens about 18 months ago and just need to put resisters in (decided i dont want to keep seeing parking light faults). but was going to use a normal resister out of maplins as that was what I was shown about 18 months ago when I changed to lights. Am I right in saying I connect one end to angel eye feed and the other to ground. As that is what a bulb would do. Cheers ppl Sent from my SM-G900F using Tapatalk

    PDC problem

    Hi all while we're talking about pdc problems I have one. I have the pic come up on the idrive when in reverse but the sensor don't work front or back, no clicking noise either when u stick ear against them, I swapped my module with my bro/inlaw from his 6 series which was in perfect working order (my car is e60 530d) which sort of worked for all of 5 sec, 2 front sensor showed they were working then it came back up as pdc fault nothing working. Put module back in the 6 series and didn't work in that either now. Proper scratching my head Any ideas ppl 😭😭😭 Sent from my SM-G900F using Tapatalk

    dead spots while accelerating

    Hi I've got 2004 530d and it does exactly that , between 1500 and 1900 rpm a very slight hesitation normally just before changing gear (auto) and very light on accelerater (slow moving or constant speed. It does it in every gear and most annoying is 70mph on cruise where it sits 1600rpm when going up slight hill it does it a lot, a bit like it's going to change gear and then decides not to. I have just put on a new bosch maf as it showed some faults with maf (car had the problem long before fault codes came up) but has made no difference faults codes have now gone. Don't know what to try next Sent from my SM-G900F using Tapatalk

    battery high rate of discharge

    Hi all. I had a problem with the car starting, every now and then it would just make a click noise from starter, with got a bit more frequent. So changed battery and put a new starter on. All has been fine for about 3 weeks and then it started again doing the clicking noise, but it will still start at worse after about 3 to 4 clicks. And now 3 days after that I got the message mentioned above. Also the alternater is only about 8 to 9 months old. Does this sound like it could be IBS sensor, or more of a loose connection

    car wont start

    Hi eddyek. My e60 530d had starting problems, about once a month car would not start and make a click noise (starter) so to be on safe side a new starter and battery (think mine was old anyway) was put on. All has been good until now (5 to 6 weeks later)It's not started twice in same day (forgot to mention it had a new alternater about 7 months ago), once started I can switch off and restart many times so battery is fine. You have mentioned crankshaft sensor does this sound like it could be that. Many thanks for any help Sent from my D2303 using Tapatalk
