Had not thought about real time, in-cabin monitoring, was just thinking static code reading...any idea if this same setup works in a 2000 528i?

I think it is the same for ‘00 528i. They had that same round port under the hood, with the less-than fully functional obd2 port in the cabin.

Just as a follow up. I ordered the $10 cable. All is better now. Codes can be read and cleared.

IHKA solenoid right fault (as expected) and right side heat exchanger is 190F while running MAX AC. New heater valve on order.

Also got a chance to play around with INPA with this adapter cord. Recoded some things to remove the suspension inactive, remote windows up, remove auto locking, remove day time running lamps.

I also ordered a new headlight leveling sensor for the front after I saw that there was a fault detected. My first time really utilizing the Foxwell NT510 and INPA devices. These tools are pretty handy now.

Glad everything worked out for you. Don't know why some people on this forum is so cheap wen it comes to buying tools or the right part. You are already saving money by doing it yourself.

I got the new heater valve last night. 10 minutes to switch it out valves. The new heater valve fixed my problem. Passenger side vents are nice and cool now and the live data shows the L & R heat exchangers at 60F and valves closed when running MAX AC. My wife will be a much happier passenger now.

Headlight leveling sensor was a was a little more work. The sensor arm was destroyed and 2 of the 3 wires were cut/broken. I cut out the bad section of wire and then spliced in some short sections of wire to match the length. Lastly I performed the ugliest wire to wire solder that I've ever made finished with running out of heat shrink and forced to insulate with electrical tape only. It works! I used the NT510 to perform the headlight actuator tests to verify. The headlights that used to be pointed at the ground now shine at a reasonable height and visibility at night is 100x better.

Usually repairs are not as fun as upgrades, however in this instance I'm very pleased to have AC working correctly and much improved night visibility. I can't wait for my road trip this evening.

Next: figure out the 5 air bag faults.
