    Bmw e61 tv tuner

    I know the tv tuner is faulty, but doesnt the blue connector need an optical bypass loop in order for the rest of the car to work? Radio, bluetooth etc..

    Bmw e61 tv tuner

    Hello, i bought an e61 a couple months back with some issues. Stumbled upon a tv tuner i didnt know i had that was unplugged, i found the blue connector hanging loose behind the tv tuner itself. Any idea why the sound, radio etc works even though this is unplugged? Its my understanding that the radio etc would not work without an optical bypass loop connected to the blue connector. I have tried plugging it in but my idrive is freezing as soon as it is plugged in. I can see a red light coming out from the plug so it got signal. I cant find a plug that goes to the white connector on the tv tuner aswell, any thoughts?

    Bmw e61 m54b25 oil leak and rough start

    Just checked the oil leak once more, ist the oil filter housing gasket, nothing else apparently. Is it possible that the car is leaking 1 litre a week for just that gasket?

    Bmw e61 m54b25 oil leak and rough start

    Oh okey, kge = crankcase ventilation systems. I think i got the oil leak covered right now, going to check it out today. I washed under the car yesterday and did some driving just to get an easier clue to where the leak is coming from. Still got the random hard start problem to fix though, the car is not throwing any codes about misfiring, ignition, fuel etc so i dont really know where to begin. I installed new spark plugs, the old ones were pretty old but it did no difference. Any thoughts on where to begin? Doesnt matter if the car is warm or cold, no loss of power or rough idle so i'm clueless right now.

    Bmw e61 m54b25 oil leak and rough start

    What is kge? I will have the vanos done soon, havent found any trouble with it yet though. In my case i completely removed the plastic cover under the car so i could see the oil pan, at first i thought it was the oil pan gasket but it was dry and old oil all around the pan. I found wet oil on some spots of tve engine though so i am going to have a look later today. I really do hope its nothing major that is broke.

    Yeah, all the oil is dripping down on the ground. No smoke etc so i guess the oil is just leaking. Is it possible that the car can loose that much oil from a leaking oil drain plug and oil filter housing gasket? I do know oil is leaking from the drain plug but i'm not sure if its leaking from the oil filter housing gasket. Any more spots to check where its leaking from? The oil pan had alot of oil around it but its dry oil, i did find wet oil under the engine block, front side.
  7. hello! recently got a massive oil leak a couple of weeks ago, i am loosing 1 litre of oil after a week of regular driving. replaced my valve cover gasket a while ago due to it being cracked, replaced oil filter at the same time. I thought the ccv was the culprit but i am not really sure, the oil cap is easily removed when the car is on but i've noticed the idle is changing when the cap is off. Thoughts? Maybe the oil filter housing? About the rough start. The car does start fine sometimes, other times it has a rough time to start. The engine is turning and i can smell gas. I've noticed that if i lock and unlock the doors from the inside it will have a good start (almost everytime). I should mention that my diamond key is dead, does nothing when i press any of the buttons.

    Bmw e61 panoramic problems

    Hello! I finally got the panoramic roof working! Well, most of it.. The rear roof window doesnt work (standard issue) so i removed the two last screws that is holding it in place just so it can be closed at all times. Going to retrieve the front drain gutter that was missing from my car but i have one issue, if the springs are missing from the new drain gutter, what can i replace it with? I am open for any suggestions.

    What is this thing?

    Oh damn, is there any way to confirm that its the module?

    What is this thing?

    The code i get is 93f9, i believe its some module that is bad, not sure though because i get different answers depending on what site i look it up on.

    What is this thing?

    Same here, bought the car with restraint systems fault, panoramic sunroof fault, leaking oil, rough start, water leaking inside, brake lights not working etc. De only things left is the rough start and restraint systems, wich i havent got a solution for yet.. I've searched for hours on forums but cant find a certain answer that would be the solution for my car.

    What is this thing?

    Oh alright, it would be fun to see if it would work though. I've noticed that in the idrive both "tv" and "cd" is greyed out. Any thoughts on how this was bypassed?

    What is this thing?

    Everything works fine without the tv module plugged in, so kinda dissapointed that this happen.

    What is this thing?

    I am currently at work so i am going to test it when i am back home. However, i read on some forums and it said that the ccc idrive doesnt have the capability to play dvd movies, only the cic does. I am pretty sure i have the ccc, (looks like an older interface) so why do i have the tv/video module installed in the car? Its a european car if it makes a difference. Prod. year is 2004/08.
