Where did you buy it? The version I have allows folding/unfolding mirrors only when ignition is turned on/off.

Our Resler iBus interface V6 modules are no longer made. The new orange one is the replacement from Resler.

I normally wont recommend EBAY parts, but this one is a big enough savings that it was worth the risk for me, 3+yrs ago and still going strong
Pulled and replaced the fan. Still no operation. Pulled the AC pressure switch to make the aux fan run...no go. Checked power from fuse 61 to the fan plug...that's ok. Ground wire is good. Waiting to have a shop put a scope on the signal wire to see what's going on. Hoping it's just a bad signal wire and not a DME/ECU issue...but I can send the DME and EWS out for service if need be. I'll update once the shop looks at it. Took the opportunity to also change the radiator output temp sensor so there is that. Also ordered a new air tube for between my air hood and the air cleaner/resinator. It had a crack I hadn't noticed. Also cleaned up and detailed the engine compartment again.

It is literally a plug and play although you need to run through these steps when upgrading to the new Resler Module from a working Resler V6 interface.

Just a FYI, the module only took about 7 days to my door from the EU.

About two years ago somebody had a non operating aux fan. Fan worked ok just never got the signal to turn on.

He made solution that ran the fan based on radiator in/out temp. I'm not sure how/why the AC worked but rather than replace/rebuild the DME it was a solid workaround.

PropellerHead and I found a couple of bugs in the remote key mirror folding. You can choose to open mirrors on ignition on or not. If selected not to use the ignition on command, it will open on key unlock as the video showed. But it was not reliable so I went back to key on unfold. Works every time with that sequence and this is how it was programmed by default. I guess Resler has some debug work to do but one thing I like is the new module allows OTA firmware updates.

Well THAT is a generous characterization! All I did was stand there while you diddled with the remote.

Not unlike my story with the coding that OB did for my X5 yesterday while I stood around sweating through my shirt. I realized a couple days before that I would be only a couple hours away from him, so we set up some time to visit again. As I was headed out, I remembered he has a notebook and mad skillz. I *finally* got the cold check turned off for my LED signals and went ahead to do the license plate checks as well.

On the way home, I used iBus to turn on the high beams as DRL to match the angel eyes now on as turn signals. With iBus also using the front fogs as DRLs, I have major (illegal) filaments on while over 70MPH in the day time- which is when I have told iBus to turn on the low beams as well. At night, of course, its all normal (and legal).

The *other* thing he got done is reading HIS dynamic front lights and then matching those settings to mine. I confirmed late last night that the lights once again turn with the steering wheel at night. This was also not functional since the clear lens replacement in 2019. It's nice to see again.

Huge shout out to OB! Hope to see you sometime on the road, OB! Thanks again!

It was fun coding with you on your E53 Jae, that was a great day. You should take a video of the halos as turn signals, that actually looks pretty cool.

Minor work, but work none the less. Washed Red and cleaned up the engine bay as she actually got wet a couple of weeks ago (gasp) in a downpour. San Antonio has been like living in the PNW lately as far as weather is concerned... which is weird. Replaced the ACS badge with fresh one. It's the little things.

Looking at the Dinan bar missing hurts me but I am looking for someone to weld the mounting eyelet back on the threaded shaft as it broke on the passenger side. I contacted Dinan... it is of course NLA. I've had it welded once but hit a particularly big pothole awhile ago that I think broke the weld. Or it could just happen over time... who knows. Wish I could get a replacement mounting eyelet.
