Mine had these symptons before. It was down to accuators?! apperently. Replaced them and it was fine.

Same thing happened AGAIN this week. Red Cog of *****, engine error, DSC error, Start assist error. Turned on and off a few times every few mins hoping it would go away but it didn't. 30 mins later all was fine... tricky little *****.

Just to bring anyone who may be following my situation, I dropped the car off at the dealer thursday and here I am waiting to hear what the problem is. Service associate said they have shared to computer readings and waiting to hear back. Keep everyone posted.

Thanks

Not a happy camper.
Mine had similar problems of the engine check light coming on from a cold start but not straight away and it would go out after a couple of long journeys and starts from warm it turned out to vanos problems and the replaced the pump then all the solnoides, its been fine since.

Engine faults, DSC fault, Start assist Fault, Vanos Fault, Transmission fault, Oil Line

Interesting reading, and although I have already posted this as a new thread, I will paste it again here as I am part of this dreaded club at present:

I would be very very worried. I have just been "stung" with a bill that is now in the £7500 range, but see no end in sight yet.

7 days ago, I got a transmission fault light for 5 secs at a time when accelerating moderately. Took it in and £250 later was told nothing was wrong, no faults stored. As I drove off, same light came on. So I took it back. Was initially told not to worry, this light comes on in icy weather. I insisted this was utter cr~p and they agreed to have it back in for a further look. Later the next day they said the clutch was slipping and a vanos solenoid needed replacing- bill would be for £4000. I was livid but had no choice, so said carry out the work if it is necessary. Once collected, ss I drove away 3 more warning lights came on within 5 miles!- this time:
1. Engine fault- reduced power
2. DSC failure
3. start assistant inactive

I took it straight back. They have had it 2 more days now (this is about 7 days in total). Now told, is an internal failure of the oil hose to the VANOS, and failure of the high pressure pump. Also faults registered on a throttle valve on bank 2, and the ? max burner stack that operates the engine coolant. I am told that the original £4000 bill will now therefore be £7500!

All this for a BMW M5 that I have had from new, well looked after with 50,000 miles on the clock. They still have my car, and i have said this is not good enough.

I'd ask for the old parts and get them inspected, if they are found to be 'good' they should refit for free!! Even if you don't plan to go down this route get the parts, you've paid for them and they will know you are serious!! All you should pay for upto know is some of the diagnostics time and not for parts that didn't need replacing!!

You know I took a bit of a hiatus from this site and the number of posts centering on the mechanical failures of the E60 M5 is troublesome. I'm first on the list @ my local dealership for the F10 M5 when it's available.........I'm beginning to believe waiting a year or so might not be a bad idea. This puppy nad alot of bugs during the run-in year and I expect a world of pain as they age out of warranty.

I think alot of the posts give a skewed view of the early models of the e60. Granted there are seemingly more problems with the earlier m5's more owners are gonna post with there problems than with there car is running perfect. That being said the lesson to be learned from all of this is you cannot own this car without a extended warranty and maintenance plan. The fact that a bad sensor can make it feel like there is a serious problem and it seems like some dealers may not really know what they are doing to fix it will lead to HUGE bills for out of warranty fixes. Also I think there are alot of older m5 that have been purchased used out there that have been thrashed pretty hard by the original owner. I belive this because when I was looking for my 06 m5 I ran into them in all types of conditions. I found out that just because a car had low mileage didn't mean the owner took care of the car. Even though i wish these cars were more sturdy if I wanted a car that wouldn't be a headache on occation I would have bought a toyota camry (and hated my life).
