What do you mean by fuel check? 50psi at the fuel rail?

Are you getting injector pulse? Just because you have fuel pressure at the fuel rail doesn’t mean the fuel is getting to the cylinder. The other thing to check for is sparks at the plugs.

I canít remember if the car will crank no ignition if there is EWS problem. Do you have more than one key? If so try the others. And do you have a BMW scanner? It will show key rated codes.

I just had two keys and both crank but won’t start. The truck start fine several days ago and the next morning the truck just crank. Thanks henry

FYI; camshaft and crankshaft positive sensors had never been replace before. Could this be the problems.

I might have missed it, but what are you using to scan your X5 with? A bluetooth adapter and some basic downloaded software or ista-d, Foxwell?
