  1. Multiple Errors, Common Sensor?

    E60 M5 and E61 M5 Touring Discussion
    Hi all... I have a 2006 E60 M5. Every once in a while, about every two weeks, I'll get a combination of errors that all come at the same time or in a row one after another, the suspension tightens as it seems to go into a default limp stiff mode and all the errors appear. Shut down and restart...
  2. Code 163 / 158 Reset DME over speed

    E39 M5 and E52 Z8 Discussion
    Hi everyone! My beast has gone into Protection Mode twice over the past two weeks. After cycling the ignition the car starts up with no issue and runs like a champ. I pulled codes 158 and 163 which both read "Reset DME over speed". I have never seen those codes before and haven't found any...

    E60 M5 and E61 M5 Touring Discussion
    I am looking at purchasing a 2006 M5 with 39K miles and had an inspection done today. The independent mechanic said the SMG control module threw error code F/C 4FA0, which according to a BMW bulletin signifies a faulty dual mass flywheel. In addition, there were two more code errors. 1. DME...
