pumi63 posted a topic in DiagnosticsHello all , Hope all is well and COVID free . The 2009 535d E60 is now lacking power and grunt low down . I also noticed that the car is a little sluggish to turn over at start with the glow plug light on for a couple of seconds especially when it is cold . This had never happened before no matter how cold it was but i took the car to my neighbour as he used to be a mechanic and his machine showed the following codes . I believe that other owners of 535d and other cars have had these faults so may shed some light on reasons , costs and labor charges before i sit down with the loans manager ! 1) 480A PRESENT DDE DPF SYSTEM 2) 4252 PRESENT DDE GLOW PLUG , CYLINDER 5 , ACTIVATION 3) 4530 NOT PRESENT DDE : CHARGE AIR PRESSURE CONTROL , CONTROL DEVIATION 4) 4212 PRESENT DDE : GLOW PLUG CYLINDER 1 , ACTIVATION 5) 42DE NOT PRESENT DDE : BSD - COMMUNICATION WITH THE GLOW CONTROL UNIT 6) 481A NOT PRESENT DDE : PARTICULATE -FILTER SYSTEM 7) 4D00 NOT PRESENT DDE : EXHAUST BACKPRESSURE SENSOR E1C4 PRESENT RAD/CIC / CHAMP: K-CAN LINE FAULT 9) FAULT 1 PARK DISTANCE CONTROL 10) DTC CODE DTC STATUS DTC CONTENT 11) 9E35 NOT PRESENT PDC : WIRE , ULTRASONIC SENSOR , REAR CENTRE LEFT 12) FAULT 1 SZM SWITCHING CENTRE , CENTRE CONSOLE 13) DTC CODE DTC STATUS DTC CONTENT 14) E244 NOT PRESENT SZM : K-CAN LINE FAULT 1) i had the DPF warning illuminate just once a few months back but i have driven on the high way and it has not reappeared No. 8 ) and No. 14 ) may explain why i still get ' high battery discharge ' warning after sitting in the car listening to radio for 5 minutes . It may also explain why i used to get interference listening to DAB radio fitted by BMW and was disconnected . I still get a poor signal on the FM radio . No idea what the other codes mean though . Thank you , for any help or light that can be shed on these codes ( car has only done 75000 miles )
Came across this today, going to download and check it out tomorrow, looks really promising. BMWhat-BMW diagnosis From the limited number of reviews it doen't look like it has been around for long. I already use this https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=org.prowl.torque&feature=search_result#?t=W251bGwsMSwyLDEsIm9yZy5wcm93bC50b3JxdWUiXQ. (Android only) to monitor the engine ECU mostly to monitor my coolant temeratures as it's so much simpler and more convenient than the hidden menu method, plus it has some neat associated camera features too. You need an ELM 327 OBD bluetooth device to use both of these App's but there are plenty to choose from online, mine is this one http://www.obdkey.com/index.asp. Anyone else tried this yet.
