andrewwynn will become famous soon enough
On cars that used Dino oil I used to put a quart of kerosene in for about ten minutes right before change and wow did it clear out the funk.

It's sold by the quart for the purpose of flushing out the oil, probably had some additives but I was told it's mostly kerosene

Put a battery charger on the X as it was totally dead today. The vestigial SLSII module is causing a draw. Small bonus, since installing the Resler USB interface I have not had the SLS Suspension Inactive error pop up on the dash after startup. Only if I toggle the OBC functions with the stalk. So at least I don't have to look at the error or arrows while driving.

Not My X5 but I found and pulled a complete OEM hitch assembly from an X5 in the junk yard.

To sell or to install...?

I guess for sale and if not sold in a month then install.

Anybody want to buy a previously loved complete OEM receiver hitch assembly?

Have you considered coding out the SLS module on your build? If you put in coilovers you can remove the module from the car's programming ...it won't think it was ever supposed to be there.

I asked about doing this and was told if you remove the module the whole car goes crazy so I didn't try.
I was able to tell the dash to not display that message, using INPA, but my INPA is broken and after being without a battery for several weeks. The error is back.

I have. From what I gather I need to edit the vehicle order to remove SLSII option. But I lack the ability to do so ATM and have so many other projects that I haven't looked into getting a laptop and software to edit the VO. After it's coded out I can them remove the module. I think.

The other option is a piggy back module sold by one of the suspension companies but it is pricey and I'd rather code it out than leave i the module in and trick the vehicle into thinking it's fine.

Yeah! Pull the old one out (hopefully in 1 piece)while the new one sits in the sun and softens up. After the old one is out line up the new one and push it in its place.

With NCS remove(subtract) that bit in SA part of ZCS and then code instrument cluster and LCM or all modules (Code Car).
