    Power Loss, Absolute Mystery! Help

    Unplug the MAF/MAP sensor just behind the air filter, go for a drive and see how it goes. Do you have inpa or anything similar to that?

    Farewell and thanks

    When you see the module tree in ista. Click on the DDE and click ECU functions bottom left corner. Can't remember the exact name but it is grayed out unless you choose the ECU. A new window will show up and then click emission controls then you can select options, click all of them and then click Read state or something along those lines. On idle backpressure should be below 5. Around 3k rpm about 45 mbar at cut out no more than 250mbar but it is engine specific. Same thing with gearbox adaptions, you can see them once you click on the EGS(gearbox). Or you can find it under Service functions.

    Aircon/Heater Issue

    Disconnecting battery wouldn't help. Check if the pressure is still there. I managed to find out on inpa for my old E46. The pressure should read 7 bars when A/C is not on. Might be slightly different for e6x tho

    E60 535d fumes in car on start up

    Down on power a bit by any chance? I had a smell and loss of power as the plate hold by 4 bolts were loose at the turbo. It's kind of middle between the air filter and cat. It has a actuator just beside it. Check for a loose bolts.. or remove the engine cover and look for sooth around exhaust components. It could also be a connection going to the EGR

    Leather conversion

    Good, now some pictorial guide would be useful and interesting read with a bottle of a beer or champagne these few days off. Was the schematics any good or you used some other ones?

    E60 Struggling to start

    Have you changed the fuel filter since you had the car?

    Oil Catch Can Installation

    Going to install a oil catch can once the weather gets warmer(along other things). It will be for the M57 tho.
  9. Thats a fail safe if it went to sleep after 30 minutes. You might have a faulty module. It should have gone to sleep in 16 minutes. Battery negative lead needs to be disconnected in order to change something in a car or replacing a module. No need to wait untill the car goes to sleep.

    New Discs/Pads Binding Vibration

    I always use a wire brush attachment for the drill to clean the hub. Important bit is too tighten the screws in a star pattern. Never had a problem with vibration. As E60 especially 3litre diesels have a heavy front it's hard to diagnose a bad bushings if the car is on the ground and even if it's of the ground a bar is usually the best friend.... Look for uneven wear and damage to the Inside tyre first. If you go slow and you car hear a different noise at certain interval you have a damage to the side wall of the tyre..

    ZF 6hp26 oil change

    Had a 03/05 535d in today with 122k miles on the clock. Highly unlikely oil has been changed hence the E-clutch front pump bushing wear at the 750mbar mark...
  12. Sport setting turns the adaptive headlights faster than the comfort. Had a guy who sad comfort was so slow so he didn't liked it and switched it off. I changed to Sport and he says he loves it now. Tripple turn means once you activate turn signal in a first stage instead of just one blink it blinks 3 times.
  13. at the front of the engine, there is an anti-shudder or whatever that name was.... pulley, sounds like it has worn or cracked. basically check the crankshaft pulley.

    Leather conversion

    right so.... after a few weeks here it is. In order to make this as easy as possible you need to make sure your modules have the same VIN number as your car. In INPA go to ''E60'' then from the menu select ''Functional settings''(or something similar to that) then press F3 for UIF I think and AIF... can't remember now correctly. It will show a list of all the modules fitted to your car with ZB number, date of manufacture, etc. You need to make sure the SGM and other modules at the first Image have the same VIN number. If they do then all you need to do is add an FA(which you have already) to the vehicle VO in CAS and LMA then you need to SG_codieren and SG_reset(in expert mode) every module that is listed there as all of them are interacting with each other. If you leave something unchecked most likely it won't work... For example if you code just the CCAPP with an option for the heated seat there will be an option on the screen to turn on or adjust the heat to the back or legs at the CCC , but it wouldn't do anything else besides it as it has only a visual output to the Idrive. It also needs an Input which is the actual SZL module with heated seat buttons (wiring diagram isn't accurate in my case as I have fitted a CCC instead of the original M-ASK unit as some modules won't be listed in NCS) Long story short. What you see at the CCC screen is just the output, you also need a input from a specific module. It's true for every retrofit. PS. CAN High is SW(black) CAN Low is GE(yellow) depends on year of the car but for E6x pre-lci's, it's that. hope it helps.

    535d gearbox reset after oil change

    Are you using ISTA+ or something else? I let ista+ know I did a gearbox oil change and Adaptions reset. Full ''gearbox reset'' is only needed if you have done the actual overhaul(clutches, steels, mechatronics unit with all solenoids and seals + other wear van tear parts) if it's just the oil change, oil level check and adaptions that need to be executed.
