    AUC sensor - calling wiring geniuses

    Oh really ? I thought it was uses to shut the vents if it smelt farts or diesels outside? If it's just internal circ I may not bother spending 70 quid fixing that because I don't use circulate anyway. Still fancy poking it with my multimeter. Btw thanks for sending me the exact diagram I included in my original post. Haha. You are david thorne and i claim my £5. http://www.27bslash6.com/overdue.html
  3. Hi all ISTA is showing an AUC sensor fault on my car. I ran the diagnostic and ISTA result is to replace the sensor. It's 75 quid so before I do that I thought I'd check the wiring. Called up new tis but before I go poking around with my multimeter can someone suggest if I'm on the right track please? https://www.newtis.info/tisv2/a/en/f10-530i-lim/wiring-functional-info/body/heating-air-conditioning-functions/automatic-air-recirculation-control/f2Kj8Dt I was going to check that there is 12v from the junction box. Was going to check 0 ohms for the ground against bodywork reference. And was then going to see if any voltage out of the signal side of the sensor. If there is power I guess the signal itself from the sensor must be screwy which is what ISTA is saying. Thanks Mike

    AUC sensor

    Thanks I'll get back to you. Do you sell many of those AUC sensors? I think I'll check the wiring first before dropping 70 quid on a new one.

    Awful car!

    Tbh I've got a bit bored of cars in general and whilst i find myself looking at AT a lot i agree with you that cars all seem much of a much today. All turbo so similar power. Too much traffic too many morons on their phones texting etc. Much prefer my mountain bike these days. Even in the wet and dark - kagillion lumens on the front and a nice set of grippy tyres and its a hoot.

    Depreciation in 12 months.

    Interesting discussion about the pcp costs and had to read it a couple of times. I think the gist is you need to change fairly frequently and be happy paying 450-500 per month continually for the pleasure of driving a new car - but never actualy owning anything until you decide to jump off and pay the final payment. Is that about it? I'm only on my 2nd car in 10 years so not for me. I did drop 19k on my current car at 3.5yrs old (f10) and its now worth about 10k (wbac, offered 9.5k trade in) so that is about 9k over 4 years excl maintainance costs. It's only got 65k on it now, done 30k.

    Hot / cold wheel between front vents

    Its the fresh air (fresh, not necessarily cold or warm depending on where you live ) blend valve for the center vents only.

    Shocking trade in value on my F11

    Totally understand that. I've never had a pcp for those reasons, I'd be super precious because it's someone else's car basically.

    Shocking trade in value on my F11

    Yep, pity really. Didn't get on with the 340i ?

    Shocking trade in value on my F11

    Agree mostly but mine is a petrol not diesel though I doubt WBAC care about that.

    Shocking trade in value on my F11

    Ah ok, fairly leggy Why not just WBAC or other online valuation rather than trade it then?

    Shocking trade in value on my F11

    Wow that does seem low. Depends on mileage and year though I guess. Mine is around 10k with WBAC at the moment (2012/65k). What does WBAC say for yours and what year/mileage is yours out of interest?

    F10 535i N55 Oil service DIY (Intermediate)

    I really wouldn't use the vacuum brake extractor directly but you could rig it via a glass bottle or jam jar to provide a secondary vacuum? Know what you mean about the oil draining out of the oil filter housing. I just meant I saturate the filter element with clean oil so it's not dry and also pour clean into base of filter housing.
