    E39 reverse light cold check

    Hi @Clavurion Yeah I think that's the way forward with the reverse camera, a relay will have to do. Thanks
  2. I have the same issue, if I can't code out the bulb check, I think this is what I'll have to do. Thanks

    E39 reverse light cold check

    Hello, I wanted to code out my reverse light cold check as it causing my head unit to turn black whenever the check takes place. It thinks that reverse has been selected and the camera is turned on. I'll attach my LCM file, if anyone can point me in the right direction, I have been looking for the following but can't seem to find anything KALTUEBERWACHUNG_RL Cold testing reverse lightsKALTUEBERWACHUNG_RL_LI Cold testing reverse light left.KALTUEBERWACHUNG_RL_RE Cold Testing reverse light right.

    Kenwood 7018DMX dimming

    So I'm I tried again to code out the cold check on the low beam and it was successful, no more dimming. After connecting my reverse signal wire to the reverse light at the LCM, the screen now flashes black. I can't seem to find the option to code out the reverse cold check. I'll make a post in the coding section

    Kenwood 7018DMX dimming

    I'm getting a voltage spike of around 5v on the illumination so that's pointing towards the bulb check, I used NCS to do the following and it had no effect. KALTUEBERWACHUNG_AL aktiv -> nicht_aktiv Is this the one to code for the low beam cold check?

    Kenwood 7018DMX dimming

    Hello again. So I wired up the illumination from the LCM, the wire going to the left headlight, I also wired up the reverse camera signal wire to one of the reverse lights from the LCM. So now I have an issue where it'll dim properly when the headlights are on but it'll still flicker when the lights are off. I tried coding out the cold bulb check and that made no difference really, so I'm going to check the voltages on Monday and then take it from there. Any ideas?

    Intermittent starting issue 525d

    I took the starter out and checked it in the bench and it's dead, it lasted for 18 years so time for a new one
  8. Hiya, so my E39 525d manual has had an issue for the past 2 days, yesterday morning it wouldn't crank and there was no clicking from the starter. It bump starts easily. I had the same issue just now, I bump started it. Got it to the garage and switched it off. I tried it again and it started, tried it another time and it was back to not cranking. Am I looking at changing the starter? I've been reading, if it was an ignition switch/EWS fault, then am I right in saying it would not bump start? Thanks

    No I left the car with them, I wasn't in a rush so they had it done within 3 days. I've got some new centre caps to go on but no M badges yet.

    So back again after a long while. Got the wheels refurbed by Alloyfix in Romford and they did an awesome job, really happy with it. In the next month or so I've got new brake discs, pads and sensors to fit. I need to run the audio cables and fit my Hertz HCP4D amp. And hopefully finish my interior, I've got the rear armrest and headrests to do.

    Alloyfix Romford

    Hiya everyone. I got my alloys refurbed by these guys just before lockdown, I thought I'd share some pictures. I did speak to the manager there about the E39s as he said he's worked on loads of them. I mentioned that I was on the forum, and he is offering a 10% discount to anyone on the forum. They are doing a collection and drop off service during lockdown for those stuck at home. I was really pleased with how they turned out. Looks a million times better than when they went in. I'll get a picture of them in the sunshine when they're cleaned up, it a nice silver metallic paint that really pops in the sun. Thanks Qasim

    Front windscreen seal advice

    Hi Just wondering if you get the windscreen replaced by your insurance company, would they change the seal as part of the windscreen replacement. Thanks

    Black heated Contours

    Just be aware that they have the pins for the heating at the connector but may not have the elements installed. That's what happened with my contours, although I did install heated elements afterwards.

    Wanted: Vavona Radio Cover / Flap for E39

    Hiya. I have one available, although I won't be able to get any pictures for you till a couple of weeks time, if you don't mind waiting. Edit. I'm also not 100% sure of the condition of it, although when it was removed, it was all good. But I'll send you pictures when I've got it to hand
