    Yes I did have the codes, but like the numpty I am, I didn't record them
    I'll have to get it scanned again and post up the codes.

    It was definitely all four glow plugs though and with your earlier response,
    I am right in thinking there isn't a relay for the glow plugs? Just the control unit?

    thanks

    Not this time...probably be in the glow plug control unit.

    Btw, you might want to talk with this guy here...he has a similar type of problem with the GM5 module. http://www.bimmerforums.co.uk/forum/...s-stop-t17260/
    Maybe work out some sort of deal with your States man if his fault is definitely the same module .

    Thanks again Neal

    Do you know where the glow plug control unit is located?

    I've PM'd the member who posted the link above, we'll just have to see what happens,

    If I can hold out until August then I could send it away whilst I'm on my jollies

    For now I just need to try and suss out what fuses to pull to isolate the central locking and allow passengers to enter the car through their own doors

    Can this be done?
    If the right fuse is removed,all the doors can be opened from inside?

    I tried tonight DOGSBITS and this is the best scenario I could get

    If I remove fuse No.60 the central locking doesn't work at all, but I have to do this before the central locking starts playing up in the warmer weather.
    At least this way I can manually let my passengers in and out of their respective doors

    Try it out see what you think?

    It's not a fix as far as I'm concerned but at least I can live with it until I have the time to send the GM5 unit off for repair.
    Are you going to be sending your's for repair DOGBITS, if so maybe we can negotiate a members discount, as mentioned by NealP?

    How does this effect the boot and petrol cap m8?
    It everything works manually then doing without the central locking for a couple of weeks wouldn't be a problem.
    So therefore................you can count me in(once I find where the little bugger is).

    TBH I didn't check the fuel cap, I'll do it tomorrow and post up, the boot will lock/unlock physically with the key, again I'll try tomorrow to open the boot
    with the remote when fuse No.60 is removed

    If you're thinking of removing the GM5 unit then you'll have a lot more systems not functioning, most are liveable with but the windscreen wipers is one of the casualties
    not good even in our so called British Summers.

    Which little bugger are you looking for?
