Negative. Do I need to for an 05? The guy I got the cable from never used it, so I doubt he did. But I'll double check in the AM. It seems to be able to communicate. I was able to see the valve stroke and eccentric shaft values.

For mine to work properly I had to, I also have an 05 X5 4.4i. I could get it to connect and could from time to time read a module but it was never stable, bridged those pins and she’s been solid ever since.

Talking

After some more digging online during my sleepless night I found the website my cable came from. It doesn't have pin 8 in the plug! At first I was quite concerned. But I eventually figured out that the little black adapter it came with is to bridge 7&8. I just tried it with the adapter and it works. I was able to go into INPA and adjust my valve lift. Now I need to learn NCS lol.

Is there a list of what modules are what? If someone could walk me thru coding one, like the seatbelt reminder, that would be awesome. Thanks for the help!

Hey Transportador, Do you still sell ready to go laptops with this software and cable so that someone with an E53 2005 model can plug in and start diagnosing their vehicles? I recently purchased one from a seller on eBay who claimed it would work for many years of BMW, including mine, but upon receipt, I found it will not detect my car at all. It seems like a cable driver issue to me. I even tried another cable but same result, never any communication. The seller now admits issues with the older vehicles and is "working on it". I'm ready to return and start fresh with someone who understands E53s. My immediate issue is diagnosing a DSC issue that causes right side braking. I suspect steering angle sensor. Can you help. Thanks so much!!

Hey bud, firstly, to your problem. Only the right side caliper is braking? Both front and rear or only one? Could be as simple as a binding caliper? Any brake warning lights on? I'm fresh out of laptops until this coming weekend, as I need to load the set I just got in. I'll reach out to you when complete. Yes, my machines work on all E chassis obd2 BMW's, so all good for your e53.

Sounds good. I sent you a private message with my contact info. Just give me a call when you've got one ready to go. I'm just south of Chattanooga so just a couple of hours away. Thanks!!
