In table 18, 50 is related to the secondary air system.

Did you try reseting the codes and see what comes back?

Also, are you sure all segments in the peake are working right?

Ard,
The 1st code back looked like 1b, where the b loos like a 6, but is not really, per the manual.

I also was puzzled by the code descriptor cyl 1-3. I thought that it was odd, given my 8 cylinder s62.

I will check the code again tonight when I get home, to be sure. Regarding whether my reader is working correctly, that I do not know, as I just received it yesterday.

I was hesitant to reset the codes last night until I could gain an understanding of how to interpret them.

I will try that again tonight as well.

thanks for the insight... will let you know what I find out.

My apologies if my post confused you or other people when I said "for E39, only table 18 applies".

I thought that would be self explanatory and obvious to everyone as this is The M5board, not the 528i board nor the 540i board.

But I agree, that may have been confusing to some people so will re-state what I said earlier, here it is "For E39 M5, only Table 18 applies".

I cant remember where I learned this too but all I know is, everytime I pull fault codes - number 18 is what always pops up first (table to use).

Get 'em Doug...some of these stuffy, huaghty-taughty M5 owners think the sun and the moon revolves around their M5 and they don't even know there are some damn nice E39s out there besides an M5- snotty rich folks. Who the hell do they think they are anyway? I'm gonna take my 540 and go back to the E39 group on the bimmer forum ...the information is much more reliable over there!

I think it will light up all segments ('88') when it powers up... or some other pattern, so you'll know the segments are good.

Oh, you're about 10 miles from me too!

Ard..

I hooked it up again this evening and obtained the same results.

About the reader... when it powers up, the outer segments of the 8 rotate in a clockwise manner approx 2 or 3 times, then the Fc undicator appears. I press the go button, and the rotation appears again, then the 1b appears. It actually looks like 16, but the manual states that the 6 with no hood is a lowercase b.

I press go again, and each subsequent code appears, until the double dash shows up.

I think that the reader is working.

I did reset the reset the codes, and drove the car and the SES light did not come on yet. I am about to hop onto the freeway to see if it will come on at speed, like it did last week.

I looked at my rear air filters and they look pretty dirty, so I am hoping that that could be the culprit. That code 50
still bugs me though, as I am not sure what a switch chain grip is (although it sounds expensive).

I will let you know after my drive...

Just finished my drive, at ahem "highway speeds" and no codes. I am going to keep an eye on things, and do a little more research around the cryptic code 50.

Thanks for all of your help so far...

10 miles away... gee what a small world.
