    Help please - Angel Eye Bulbs

    Hi appreciate this post might be dead as a month old. I have pre LCI Xenon and i originally used the £20 ones from Ebay/Amazon. I found they didnt last more that a few months and are not very bright. These are fantastic compared to the cheaper ones and have a decent guarantee. Down side is the cost. https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B07NPRGVWQ/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o03_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    Active steering

    Hi, sorry no codes as it was carried out at the garage. however my indi says the codes point to the valve in the pump. I do have Icarly but im not sure if it is detailed enough to give up the correct code?! I have replaced the battery since the light came on. Thanks Adam

    Active steering

    Hi all it’s been a while, I previously posted the issue I have before. Red steering fault came on, when I had a local tyre place put my winter wheels on. ( not a fan of coincidence) then a few weeks later the amber active steering light came on. So I’ve got round to getting into the garage as I’ve had front and rear bushes done. The garage says it all points to the steering pump. So my question is, does anyone know of a decent place to buy a recon unit. cheers Adam

    winter wheels on Steering lock fault

    I think its more a Active steering issue. the steering seems lighter than normal too, but that could just be different tyres and wheels. So far ive found this Ive tried the reset but to no avail so ive ordered some fluid as it does seem a little low. https://5series.net/forums/e60-discussion-2/active-steering-won't-reset-118520/

  8. Hi Just had a set of 17s SE wheels fitted at my local Tyre place with my winter setup on, in lieu of the M sport 18s. got back in car and I have the following fault. "steering lock leave engine running" I had a few faults so cleared them in Icarly but still shows up on dash. Now I know ive seen something about this somewhere, but for the life of me I cannot seem to find it. Any help appreciated. Thanks

    Possible battery/electrical issue

    so battery fitted only problem is Icarly does not have the option of a 100ah battery. 90 or 110ah ...im suprised tbh. so ive had to set it at 90ah

    Possible battery/electrical issue

    Ok so I have done the repair but to no avail as when I unlocked the car the battery charger went to 25% again and as I did it direct to the battery I think thats the end of the battery. Interestingly though still no issue starting the car. Shows that the IBS is a great bit of kit as I would never of known until we had a cold day and I went out to start the car. So batteries then. Im going to go for an AGM, so far I've looked at OEM,Bosch and Varta ranging for £150-£250 ouch

    Possible battery/electrical issue

    Great video. looks like the battery from that except I have no issues starting. Will try a repair of the battery via noco smart charger first and if still an issue I will have to invest in either a new battery or some more equipment.

    Possible battery/electrical issue

    Ok so I connected the smart charger yesterday afternoon and it read 25% at first then within 5 mins went upto 50% when I went back a few hours later it was fully charged. I left it connected over night and most of today as it just keeps it fully topped up without over charging. Unlocked the car and lifted the hood to find the charger had suddenly dropped to 25%..... now i I cannot see how that is possibly as that's a lot of power to use. I also doubt it's a charger issue. However as I charged it from under the hood I'm guessing that ibs controls this so I think this is faulty somehow. When I get home after work I was thinking about connecting directly to the battery in he boot. Question is would I need to disconnect the battery? also interested to hear any other ideas. Charger is a noco g3500uk (I think that's right)
