I’m just gonna put them up for sale at a reasonable amount from what I can see online lol
I have another issue, yes another one lol. Removed the retro fitted fronts today and replaced them oem ones.
All work fine apart from the passenger halos. Non of the 2 work. I traced the wire back a touch and found the green/grey(white) wire was broken. I attempted a crude repair just to get them working as it’s late and I’m working in the morning. I couldn’t get the halos to work at all. Keep getting the front left parking light failure warning message. Any ideas where to start? I only took a new piece of wire and wrapped the cores around each other to try get it to work. Will they need proper soldering to get them to work? The inside core of the wire isn’t brass coloured anymore
I have a 2011 X3 with 165000 on the clock. Every so often I get warning lights saying :
tyre pressure monitoring failure
they all come on at once but make no difference to the ride of the car. I cancel the lights and drive on as if nothing had happened and no lights had come on ie the brakes are fine, the handbrake hasn’t failed. Ive owned this car for 2 years and it happens every couple of weeks or so. Ive taken it to different mechanics to try to get to the bottom of it but no one seems to know what it is. Anyone have the same problem ?
What happens if you lock using the key in the door lock ? I have read quite often about ignition switch issues mainly E46 and E39 but as our cars share so many parts it could well be the switch. When it wont start are there any other issues like no horn or radio controls not working?
As your key operates the locking the actual barrel is reading/charging your key so it could well be just the switch on the back of the barrel which can be changed quite easily and (bonus) they are not expensive and you can change them without messing with the steering lock and barrel.
PS If you aren't aware there is an American site I use www.pelicanparts.com which has some brilliant how too's with pictures apart from the steering wheel being on the wrong side all the bits are the same. Just had a look and changing the switch looks a simple job.
I wonder if the numbers are Hella moulding assembly numbers possibly
Try realoem but search manually select US model they do have different lighting laws or try a part number search using the numbers you have
As for a price to sell them, I would check all the usual suspects ebay amazon etc, plus contact a few BMW specialist breakers see what they would sell them at
so I’ve changed the rear to standard units and the warning have gone now.
I have taken the smoked rears off and the are genuine hella ones but I can’t find any info on any of the codes on the light.
ive found ;
164 298 housing
164 300 lens
164 312 reflex reflector lens
164 314 reflex reflector smr
164 302 additional reflector
164 308 bezel
164 306 bezel
any ideas? Just looking to get an idea on price to sell them at really. They are deffo LCI ones tho and the bulb holder comes from LCI type.
Hi Dave, yet again, your resources are second to none. 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻
I have already synced both the dme and ews, also the ews and ilk units, still the same.
on the ews live data, the top 3 (security coding) keep changing from green to red and back. And then go blank on the data boxes.
the car seems to immobilise itself once I have locked the doors. If I don’t lock it, it starts no issues.
the key has been coded to the central locking, all ok.
could it be the reader around the barrel?
I think I’ll order a spare key and see what happens, at least it will tell me if the battery is going on the key here.
Not sure if deleting the EWS will help, in fact may cause more probs than it has already
Your DME code D1 (209) is an Immobiliser code 80 (128) I believe is transmission parity
How up are you on using PA Soft?
Using the BMW scanner go into the EWS and find the screen that shows live data. It will show green box coloured in next to the EWS security checks it goes through. Key, pass codes, DME code etc. Have a look and see what step in the security checks it fails. If it does fail.
You can use PA Soft to re-sync the EWS and DME which may be the cause
I would get a pad and paper handy Then open PA soft the first information screen will have IKE and LCM columns showing chassis mileage etc the next box is ZCS/FA Coding either write everything down or take a picture so you know what the original values are.
Next go to the scan screen and open EWS and look for live data if you can run live data you may need a fully charged battery and a back up
lets see what comes up
