Have new toy - Foxwell Scanner - some unusual readings.

Rather than belabor the thread that has now been fixed Re my transfer case, I would lie to tackle the other issues that have come up. I made a PDF from my scanner and if I can I will place it here, if not I can copy and paste.

I have left out the Panoramic sunroof as I am not concerned with that and parking distance control as that is easily understood. I tried searching for these initially as they are worded but it leads me to cars and completely different fault numbers. I added the X5-E53 nomenclature but that did not help and gave almost the same answers and had a crossed out X5-E53.
I tried the shorter versions of these, but it still did not work the way I hoped.

"EODguy" did tell me to clean the connection of the accelerator but I have not done that yet. where is that located.

Now in full disclosure of the tests, this was initially to track the effect of what felt like binding drive line on a real four wheel drive. I had a constant Transfer case message of worn out oil and as you can see that is gone.
I did put my offset rims back on the rear and this was the result after a drive, but I did a four wheel rolling test and drove 15 km around the suburbs including roundabouts. That test showed a 100% equal rolling diameter, but as "Omodos" mentioned they are two different brands. I have no growling noise, vibration etc, just these faults, some of which are new.

I will mark them with a green Star. The Instrument cluster KOMBI seems to have things I am not sure of seeing before, however I will change back to the same wheels as the front today and do another test. Just what is the Instrument cluster KOMBI and how does it play into the grand scheme of this?



I will order six new glow plugs as well.


I think I am more dangerous now that I have a scan tool I solved one problem but created more. Hopefully returning the tyres will return some, fingers crossed.


Cheers, Jeff

BD IKE: Electronic braking-force distribution

I get this one every time I do a scan with my 520 Pro. When I searched, my conclusion was it can be safely ignored.

Interesting I just finished some alterations to the wheels and a pretest diagnostic, erase faults and drive, then diagnose again. It does come up but I also feel there must be a reason as I do have slight surging effect.


Ill post the pre and post results in a sec...

Today I changed the rear wheels back to the 9" with the same tread pattern on them. The only difference between the front and the rear is about 5000km and after measuring the tread depth in several places on each wheel, they all have 6.5mm depth, naturally easing out to the edges equally. The only difference currently is the front are the crab claw style and the rear are five spoke. I think they have a different offset, but both are 9" wide x 19" diameter with exactly same size tyres and tread.


There were significant differences from the first diagnostic above, which was still the same this morning until I cleared it. Again I will only put up the faults that registered.

You will see the difference in some while others are missing completely now.

18-Independent/auxiliary heating STH Pass | No Fault


I am still getting the hesitancy sometimes and I was thinking that maybe it might be worth trying the old trick of putting a washer under the wheel speed sensors to lift them out a bit there definitely seems to be some sort of alternate force effect happening, like braking or retarding effect but not to the extent of the stalling of the engine.


I'll clear the faults and do this every day for the week to note if there are changes. I'll only post if something big happens or a change occurs.


Could glow plugs cause this effect? I have ordered six new ones.



Cheers, Jeff

Pretty certain it's a false positive. Check the results on this site:

I get the electronic braking force distribution all the time too. Can't remember if it's the Foxwell or PA Soft though. Each tool seems to have certain codes that it always reports as a false positive. O2 sensor heater open-circuit is another one, I get that one every single time with the PA soft but not with the Foxwell.

It certainly does make a compelling argument for a ghost error in the system.
I wonder what the BMW Stealership workshops have got to say about it? No point in asking though, they will say it is a safety issue and you need to bring your car in and pay them hundreds of money.
Guess I will join the ranks of "IDGAF" about the whole fault for now. Bigger fish to fry

So, my next quest on this nightmare of issues, I have now got the same tyres on the same rims front and rear.
I still feel the hesitancy after the car has traveled about 3-4 km (2.5m). Can the glow plugs be responsible for this?
I am considering another fuel filter as well, this one is 12 months old, maybe older and who knows what crap was in the tank or the places I fueled at.
Would it be worth changing out the transfer case drive gear, or maybe I'll just inspect it first.
With all that said, I am not getting any warning lights, none at all.
No changes in the diagnostic readout from last one posted, so I am left with three choices, either the glow plugs or EGR are having this effect, or there is shit sucked into the fuel filter. I remember there was once or twice that I have let the fuel run down to the point of getting range warning on the dash. Maybe...
