  1. I forgot to mention… the previous fault codes I had are phantom codes. When I was trying to start the car it would bring up different fault codes each time because of the shorted ground circuit so if you have this issue where your scanning the car and each time the fault codes are different remove the negative battery terminal for 10+mins not to sure how long it takes for the ecu to reset itself …. Reconnected the negative terminal TURN IGNITION ON ONLY DO NOT TRY TO START THE ENGINE !!!!! now scan your faults and it should display the correct faults and go from there but again do not start the car because the short circuit will throw off other sensors and things (this applies if you have a electrical fault like me)
  2. I forgot all about the thread in the end I just removed all the trailer harness as it was so bad it wasn’t worth trying to repair so my car has lost one feature for now but in the future I will replace it I just forget about it as I don’t use the car to tow anything ever
  3. !!! SOLVED !!! SOLVED !!! SOLVED !!! so today I discovered the whole reason behind why my car wouldn't start the wiring loom for the turbo actuator and the MAF sensor had managed to work its way loose from the secure tabs that hold the wiring loom in place and got burnt by the hot part of the EGR valve causing a short circuit to ground (ground being the engine itself) so as a temporary fix I have separated the loom that has exposed wire and wrapped it up in electrical tape (I’ve cable tied the loom so is not going anywhere) also I installed the new DDE Relay which wasn't the issue as once I complete the install it didnt start so I checked the fuses in the DDE Compartment again and somehow I've managed to miss a blown 20amp fuse lol so I replaced that and Voilá its back to life so for anyone else reading this if you ever run into these main fault codes (all at the same time) 004320 DDE: Delivery control valve, activation 004350 DDE: Rail pressure control valve, activation 004191 DDE: Charging/boost pressure actuator, activation 00483D DDE: Throttle actuator 003EC0 Camshaft sensor circuit, no signal check your fuses in your DDE Compartment under the bonnet and check hotspots on engine if you can because it could be something as simple as my problem was… I had a company tell me the timing chain had failed just because they seen code 003EC0 Camshaft sensor circuit, no signal telling me I needed a engine rebuild and all sorts of rubbish (I had the timing chain replaced December last year) BIG MASSIVE THANK YOU TO GREY DOG for guiding me through it and taking the time to help me I really appreciate you mate IMG_4484.MP4 FullSizeRender.mov
  4. just another quick one still waiting on the DDE Relay I think ive discovered that there are two relays in the ECU compartment is that correct one black one and the blue DDE Relay what is the black one for ? ITS FOR ELECTRIC FAN LOL JUST CHECKED IT OUT
  5. Yes that’s the odd thing I have changed the glow plugs and the module and still have this fault which I looked on the ista software it says check grounds so that’s my last check point
  6. A little update so I’ve made some progress not loads but a bit so I only have faults on the DDE and DSC now I know what the DSC is (rear brake pad wear sensor broken) I have looked on ista and the DDE faults have pointed me in the direction of the DDE Relay being faulty so I’ve removed that and waiting for one to arrive in the post I also need to check the ground connection for the starter motor and the alternator I had this error since I brought the car and I believe that is what is interfering with the preheating control unit causing the error code 004A79 & 007A74 thanks for your help mate honestly it’s you’ve been helpful and I’m the meantime I’ve learnt ista as well so it’s been a bonus amazing software
  7. hahaha I was lucky enough to get it when I brought the car ...... I can do the odd mechanical jobs but electrics just throw me off completely so I have a lot to learn just another thought as well referring back to a previous reply you mentioned the DDE Relay I've actually had a fault for that and it gave me a wiring diagram which I have posted so ill be replacing the relay hopefully that fixes all the DDE Issues as the car turns over but doesn't start..... another possibility I have fitted genuine bmw angel eyes to the car but replaced the original bulbs with L.E.D bulbs is it possible that could cause the FRM issue all the windows lights and everything still work even though the FRM module has a short ? ........( answer to previous question on the FRM I did a visual check of the pins and there was no corrosion or anything I could see visually)
  8. so ive scanned the car again and after clearing the fault codes i get different codes come up its now saying that the JBE is ok so there must have been a loose fuse or something as that has now turned green..... ive have screen shot the faults twice to show two different fault codes and wiring diagrams i am assuming that the red means there is some kind of break or is that live power ? im unsure lol clueless when it comes to electrics tbh it also shows a short circuit on the frm on the test plan
  9. Thank you mate sorry for the slow reply’s So I removed the frm module checked it out appears fine removed checked and reinstalled every single fuse in the junction box electrics all appear fine I check the DDE last week that seemed fine as well as all the connectors so I’m stumped I guess I will have to check all my ground connections and and the fuel pump module I’m still needing to scan the car again to check if there are any new codes
  10. Thank you so much for your reply mate I haven’t checked any fuses I’m a bit clueless when it comes to electrical issues but I will 100% give all the fuses a look at I removed the DDE and all the male pins on the DDE and the plug connectors looks I do remember the ista saying no communication to the JBE as well I forgot to take a picture of it, it also mention no communication to the frm and check the fuses and terminal 15 but I don’t know what that is 😂 yes the car does turn over
  11.

  12. I was driving down the road and the car decided it no longer wanted to run I have the scan tool software rac told me it needs a new fuel pump in the tank but im not so sure after seeing the codes has anyone experienced this before
