Hi Guys, I am new to this and never used forums before, goingthrough Bimmerforums threads is great. I have a problem!!! I have read through the forum but not found anything strong enough for me to go ahead and repair. I have a 2002 530D Sport E39 saloon Auto, over the past few weeks i have electronic faults developing and they include;
1......Indicators on dashboard cluster dont work and doesnt make click noise, but indicators externally work fine
2......PDC dont work it just makes a long 5 second bleep sound then turns off
3......Reverse lights work sometimes, and sometime they dont
4......Alarm fob dont work at all, have to unlock/lock car manually with the key
5......Recently all electrics failed i.e. windows, sunroof, mirrors until i switch car on/off this happened twice now
6......There aren't any warning lights on dashboard showing YET!! but all show up on ign 2
7......External temp reading always showing -40
problems 1,2,3,4 started at the same time and rest started afterwards although problem 7 have always been there since i purchased the car 2 years ago.
Any idea please???? I have had the car plugged in but dont come to solid conclusion. Before I send the car to auto electrician charging £70/hour please try to help me!!!!
Mechanically the car is running fine although really heavy on fuel consumption approx 18MPG thought they will give around 28!!!
