  1. Secondary air pump error

    E60 M5 and E61 M5 Touring Discussion
    I just assumed that it was disabled with the DME Flash that was done in 2013 and that it should be like this with the current Flash. So didn't bother more with it ^^
  2. SMG issues

    E60 M5 and E61 M5 Touring Discussion
    It's the correct way of measuring DC voltage. I don't think the AC reading will give you any good indication if it's broken or not since the readout is a RMS value and a broken diode can be peak so it might not show good. I would expect it to show 0.5ish volts tho but something might be off with...
  3. Secondary air pump error

    E60 M5 and E61 M5 Touring Discussion
    Thank you Jcolley. Those steps looks pretty similar to the steps that ISTA-D had me go through. The fourth one what is that supposed to mean "If secondary air pump" ? I never get the MIL light showing tho and the pump is running for sure. If you look at the first picture in the test it is...
  4. Secondary air pump error

    E60 M5 and E61 M5 Touring Discussion
    I've done some more debugging now. On a cold start the air pump is clearly running. I just cannot figure out why I get this error message.. Anyone got a clue here? I just did a test in ISTA-D of the secondary air system and it completes without a error..
  5. Not charing after 20 minutes of engine running

    E60 M5 and E61 M5 Touring Discussion
    Ok here's an update. I couldn't belive it was so little info in the system on the charging so I went looking some more in INPA. If you look at the attachment here you see that all the info I wanted is right there.. I would have love to see this on the old generator but it's to late :( Short...

    yeah there is but I think it was over complicating things. The change is pretty easy and you will see how it is as you go. I will make a simplified version here 1. disconnect the battery 2. remove the plastic covers in below the engine (front one) 3. loosen all the hoses that goes under there...

    and use the "manage attachments" button further down. Dragging in even tiny pictures of 1kB doesn't work for me. Says the file is to large. When using the manage attachments button I didn't hit the size limit yet ^^
  8. Not charing after 20 minutes of engine running

    E60 M5 and E61 M5 Touring Discussion
    Yay! Got home today after a week at work and the alternator was at the post office. As soon as I put my kid to bed it was straight out in the garage and putting it in there then to do a quick testdrive for 40-45minutes. It charges now all the time and it didn't throw any errors when I scanned...
  9. Not charing after 20 minutes of engine running

    E60 M5 and E61 M5 Touring Discussion
    I removed some of the goop that was on the die and this is how it looks like up close. I didn't want to use any solvents for the cleaning so this is only cleaned with a dry cloth. It doesn't look like it has any inprint that can be read out tho. tempted to crack it open and have a look on the...
  10. Not charing after 20 minutes of engine running

    E60 M5 and E61 M5 Touring Discussion
    Ok. Some off topic but could you take a picture of the MCU on the DME? Need to know if i can use my flasher on it in case a update of the DME fails with winkfp.. Are you sure the IBS gives current information? Om my E70 I can read out current draw snd change current but on this I couldn't find...
  11. Not charing after 20 minutes of engine running

    E60 M5 and E61 M5 Touring Discussion
    Even if there was I'd have no chance of hooking up my microcontroller programmer to this as the connectors will be way to small. I can try to remove some of the goop that is over the controller and have a look at it. But I suspect that it's really primitive. They don't even have a signal to DME...

    Heh I guess it looks kinda geeky and boring but I'm addicted to this M5, sorry :D
  13. Not charing after 20 minutes of engine running

    E60 M5 and E61 M5 Touring Discussion
    In my ownership it's parked inside and I very rarely drive it when it rains :p This is my third car so it's not a daily. But this is most likely the stock alternator so it's 12 years old.. The bearing that was rusty felt perfect actually. The problem bearing was the one towards the pulley and...
  14. E60 m5 owners. Can someone check on their car . . .

    E60 M5 and E61 M5 Touring Discussion
    If you are not sure about the 0.5 yellow/red wire coming from DME then measure it. Unhook it in both ends and measure resistance to ground and continuity. If your wire is ok then hook up a oscilloscope and measure the PWM signal from DME on the fan connector. If this looks like the one in the...

    E60 M5 and E61 M5 Touring Discussion
    Perfect :) just wanted to be sure there wasn't something special to our beasts :D what adhesive is it best to use when putting it back on? Is it double sided 3m "foam" tape or can it be ordered to fit the letters from BMW maybe?
