but we are also in the middle of a pandemic that is causing pandemonium with logistics and stocking. I have had things that should be overnighted from a city 4 hours drive away take over a month to arrive....So, Having not needed one up until this point, as stated I was hoping getting my hands on one was not the only way to diagnose a fan issue...I was hoping someone with a more intimate understanding of the X's fan control systems would have a simple "oh yeah, just unplug this...or just bridge that, and the fan will run if its not shagged" instead of potentially waiting weeks just to be able to diagnose it, then weeks again for the correct part to arrive after figuring out what it needs.

In short...sorry for asking a fucking question...your highness.
You're the one that embellish your story with the comment that you were hoping not to have to buy the cable. I just pointed out that fact. If you look at my postings count I'm one of the more active member on this board. I have helped many X5 owner through this board as well as in person. At the very end you go and drop the F bomb. Well add me to the list of people to ignore your posts.

Oh and by the way have a G'Day mate. Don't need to put anything on the barbie for me.
