    Dogsbits, Have you managed to get your unit sorted yet?

    I've sent mine away today, I should get it back on Thurday 2nd July latest, I'll post up results, hopefully it will finally be fixed.

    regards

    Just posting up to say I have now received my repaired GM5 unit, posted it Monday and got it back today,Wednesday
    I managed to do a refit mid afternoon, then the car was left in the baking hot car park for a couple of hours or so, remote central locking is nowworking A1 OK

    I'll post some pictures of the old faulty relays in a couple of days, there is no way on this earth that I could have done the repair myself, the relays are tiny

    regards

    Drop Colin a mail at colin@cabraham.co.uk , he charged me £70 to supply and fit new Tyco relays, included in that price was return Royal Mail Special Delivery,
    which is next day delivery & insurable up to £500, I also posted the unit out to Colin using that method, it cost me £5.40 to send £75.40 in total

    If you fancy going down that route, PM me and I'll post you out an Anti-Static bag.

    Tell Colin you've got his contact address from speaking to me

    Here are a few pics of the offending relays, I've ripped one partially apart, if you look closely you can see the damaged contacts.

  13. GM fault

    Hi
    See my post ref the GM fault on my 1999 E46 320d. I have just sorted mine out tonight having ordered the relays from the USA and enlisted the support of a mate trained in the delicate art of electronic engineering. He has all the kit and this repair was a first for him with the BMW GM Module. The repair cost me a fraction of the cost quoted by the main dealership. A few pounds well spent plus a meal out for him and his better half who was patiently suffering whilst we did the repair.
    No promises but he may consider helping out if interested.
