    hi im new to this and was looking some help. I have a 2006 x5 diesel and was getting the tv/ sat nav/ system turned off while the car is in gear. The car was started when he plugged in the system. As soon as he plugged it in the car died and started reading fuel injection system on dashboard. And wont start. Can someone please help.

    The TV was being unlocked by someone, and if caused a fault?
    What kind of device was being plugged in?
    anyone had a look at the fuses?

    I guess this guy didn't have a fault code reader handy?

    Im not sure what kind of device it is but he unlocked the same system for me before in a 3 series. Checked a couple of fuses and they were ok.

    ok, so when you say as soon as he plugged it in, was it exact? like he was pressing a shut off, or did he press anything on his box first, then it died.

    It seems like he might have spiked the ECU somehow, although his tv programmer should be far safer than that.

    I think it's going to need a fault code check to see what the problem is. "Fuel injection system" is a bit vague for you to be able to fix anything yet.
