I borrowed a friends adaptor from work and it found nothing.
Ok my quest for a code reader continues.

I did get a cheap wifi job ages ago but that needs Carly (I have lite which is practically useless).

Hi Manic,

on a different point what code reader are you using and is it any good.

I need to clear my airbag light on my 5 series GT F07 and the dealers want £30 with is a good price IMHO, but i'd like to put this toward a reader/ fault clearing device as with my Z4 and F07 and my daughter cars, adding another £40-50 might be a better idea as then i'll be able to read and clear faults on all cars (i think)

cheers
If you are comfortable with computers and have a laptop then I would recommend getting a virtual machine with a copy of ISTA Rheingold installed then buy a "bimmergeeks" DCAN cable. The BMW virtual machine containing all the software can be found in the coding section of E90post.

If you're not IT literate and have an Android phone then just buy the "MHD Flasher N54" app and a bimmergeeks cable and use that for code reading. It picks up all BMW specific codes and allows resets of all codes and engine adaptations.

I wouldn't bother with Carly. I was never impressed with its code reading abilities.

Thanks for the good info. Decided to let the dealer do it for £30. That way is done. Cheers

Took the car to Bmw on Saturday. Actually ran really well.

Right up until it started to slow down and the accelerator pedal no longer functioned, quickly followed by an amber warning about engine overheat.

The car went from 60 to 50 to 40 to 30 (motorway!) and i pulled into the hard shoulder doing 20mph at full throttle (made no difference) finally got stopped and waiting 10 mins. Started car and carried on within hard shoulder at 20mph until I stopped again. Waited another 10 mins before it would start again and limped the rest of the way at 20mph (car would not exceed this) and as I rolled into the dealership I got a red ‘stop immediately’ .. which I did.

This is going to be fun. Time for a Lexus?

Seems unlikely if the water pump has failed that it would have contributed to the misfire and hesitation when cold? Coincidence?

Hmm, just had a quick look & they don't seem a crazy price-if it's like the N52 (looks like it's very similar externally fitted unit) it could be done & dusted within an hour :?

The cold start and hesitation will be injectors...

Water pump will be overheat problem.

If you have warranty,dont sweat it.......Both common probs on the N54.
