  1. 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...
  2. 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...
  3. 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..
  4. 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...
  5. Not charing after 20 minutes of engine running

    E60 M5 and E61 M5 Touring Discussion
    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...
  6. Comprehensive S85 Rod Bearing Picture Thread

    E60 M5 and E61 M5 Touring Discussion
    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 ^^
  7. 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...
  8. 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...
  9. 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...
  10. 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...
  11. Debadge M5

    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?
  12. Debadge M5

    E60 M5 and E61 M5 Touring Discussion
    How do you guys do the debadge process? I don't want to debadge mine, but the badge is not placed like it should from factory so I guess someone has debadged before and been really drunk when they put it back on ^^
  13. Not charing after 20 minutes of engine running

    E60 M5 and E61 M5 Touring Discussion
    I've then pulled things apart. At least the front bearing towards the pulley was broken. The rear one felt good. Can't see anything obvious on the winding's but I didn't measure them either to be sure. I assume those are good since it works for the fist 20 minutes. My best guess is that the...
  14. Not charing after 20 minutes of engine running

    E60 M5 and E61 M5 Touring Discussion
    Sure thing :) If it's a MCU inside there I can do a readout also if that can make any sense. Btw I can feel a slight resistance when turning the alternator. Tempted to open and check the bearings if those are failing and making the alternator stop charing due to high heat. Not a big deal...
  15. Cooling fan wiring?? Help asap

    E60 M5 and E61 M5 Touring Discussion
    You should install ISTA-D on your computer. Here you got access to all wiring diagrams and all the info you will ever need when working on your car. There is also troubleshooting guides for almost every problem you can get that will direct you on what to measure and what measurements values to...
  16. Not charing after 20 minutes of engine running

    E60 M5 and E61 M5 Touring Discussion
    I finally got around to order a new valeo generator. Will post back with the restults afterwards. Pulled out the stock one today and took a picture of the number in case anyone would need it for later ^^ It seems like I have some kind of early edition that is 180A and then they moved down to...
  17. Not charing after 20 minutes of engine running

    E60 M5 and E61 M5 Touring Discussion
    Great will order that also then. Regarding this alternator what is the differences there? I can find many valeo and bosch alternators on autodeler.co.no but all look the same with different "angle". What should I get and what is the same as the stock one mounted there? From what I read in...
  18. Not charing after 20 minutes of engine running

    E60 M5 and E61 M5 Touring Discussion
    Ok. I think I got some kind of serial mode on my scope. Think I can hook it up to rs232/uart,i2c and spi among others and log it. What that would tell tho will be a mystery to me :D It was just if there was some simple way of detecting the signals between the different components to see what was...
  19. Secondary air pump error

    E60 M5 and E61 M5 Touring Discussion
    Will have a look for the specific code when I get home. I did not have the check engine light that's correct. Tbh I don't want a tune. I would like to keep it like bmw had it from factory and not having it tampered with ^^ Are you sure that flashing it won't mess up the immobilizer? Isn't the...
  20. Secondary air pump error

    E60 M5 and E61 M5 Touring Discussion
    I got no clue. I'm not the first owner of this car so this was just an idea if the ECU has been chipped and they removed this system (due to lack of knowledge). I want it back and working again :S I guess it's not smart to just flash the ECU either since this has immobilizer?
