Actuator is new. eBay supply.

Error codes are

54C8 - Classification Resistor
5463 - Mechanism Faulty

By directional means that you can activate things such as turn the blower motor on.

Mine had codes 54C6, 55C4, 5463, and 5F39 when I bought it. All of them cleared with a gear replacement. Check the connection carefully. Is the mechanism seated correctly?

is it an OEM actuator you bought off ebay or an "aftermarket"?

I'm starting to think it might not be working

When I had similar problems with client 328xi i left the actuator plugged in but not installed so I could actuate with the scanner and confirm it was working.
It was working.

His case the TC internals were fried but he ran the TC dry of oil due to front seal failure.

Feels like the problem is the resistor.

Ok. Put in a new Classification Resistor
.

How do I get the car to recognise it?

Questions:

What scanned do I use?

What are the steps when using this scanner?

Thanks,

JG

I believe the foxwell scanner can do it. EOD had to replace his and that's the scanner he uses.

_______________________________________

Go to service section and check the VTG (I think it was) Live Data.

If your classification resistor is correct it will show a "registered" and "actual" set to (H) under maintenance if neither was shown.

The steps are shown in the above menu.

I have access to a MaxiCom MK808bt scanner. Can this be done with that scanner?

If so, what are the steps?

Have you driven it? On mine, the lights may come on if the battery goes too low. All I do it drive it. It relearns the transfer case actuator. I can clear the codes but the 4X4 light stays on. It goes away once it moves. I guess the memory gives a code if no data is stored.
