Thank you guys, I will try that when I get home. (Biking to work a lot lately because I drive a gas guzzler)

I pulled the sensor connector out, fiddled with it, put dielectric grease on it, and pushed it back in nice and strong, and still no luck. After I was done I thought I should probably get my meter out and see if the switch has any continuity. I will try that next.

Next subject: I got BMW Scanner working reliably (and figured out how to disable automatic updates to the USB drivers so it won't blow them away regularly). I dinked around with BMW Scanner for a while:
1. I enabled the convenient locking (roll up windows when you hold the lock button). Previously only the convenient unlocking was enabled on my car, for god knows what reason.

2. I tried to change my speedometer offset/scaling, since my speedo seems to read about 6-7mph high all the time, but couldn't find any setting for this in the IKE. Anybody know where to look?

3. I tried disabling my sunroof but even when I removed it from the menu, it still worked. My sunroof is on the fritz so I will continue to just not touch the button ever. I was also unable to remove this from the convenient locking/unlocking. There seems to be no option in my menu to turn on convenient locking/unlocking without sunroof.
Still learning about BMW scanner/PA soft. Any advice is appreciated!

This has been attempted by a number of us in the past - all I ended up with was a corrupt IKE flash!

After fixing the IKE, I've not tried again...

Rats, well thanks for the quick reply, wpoll.


The last time I was in there (a couple of years ago) I changed the "mileage offset" from 7 to zero, thinking that that was the speedometer offset. I realized this time that it was the odometer offset, probably to make the odo read 0 miles when it got to the dealer lot. But the speedo behavior never changed, as far as I could tell, and that's why. Had it in my mind that I could figure it out somehow.

If you got all the way through the thread I referenced, the last word was that we thought we might have it figured out...

TLDR? - I chickened out and haven't (yet) tried what may in fact be the fix. After the coding failure and subsequent re-flash, my IKE and all systems appear to be working fine but to this day I still occasionally get this when I read error codes...

Maybe I'll do a shoot with all of these together before I sell the E70. Would be kinda cool.

That's not what I want to know.

I want to know how you haven't been found in a rolled up carpet hauled to the curb by your wife?!?

If I hadn't seen how black budgets are hidden, my wife would have me wearing a sheep costume with a yarmulke in downtown Riyadh by now...

Seriously! It must be a full time job with the budget of a smaller developing country to keep that fleet running.

New rear manifold to aux pump coolant hose finally in today and correctly routed this time. Another few gallons of Zerex (I should buy stock) and she’s back on the road. Given the proximity of the double joint to the hose in question, I took the opportunity to replace it too. My steering wheel had been giving me a very loud clunk every 45ish degrees for several months and I can report it was definitely the double joint. Steering is smooth as silk again.
