The tech looked at it confirmed my issue was in fact the module. They didn't charge me at all. For my problem today, here's exactly what I wrote.

*Airbag light was set off by customer diagnosing problem and disconnecting harness with battery attached
*Main window control switch will not control all 3 passenger windows or passenger mirror
*Driver door doesn't lock with remote FOB or central locking when car is put into motion


Other Facts
*Driver Door Actuator was replaced with BMW part purchased at International Auto in fall of 2010
*Replacement window control switch was swapped to test for switch failure
*During examination of door jamb harness, it appears that a pin maybe broken (5th from bottom)
*Key left in ignition doesn't chime when door left open
*Interior lights do not activate when driver door is open
did the window switch replacement help solve the problem? I'm having the same issue.

How did you do that! I can't get use to the one flash when driving the X. I just don't use it. My W211 will flash three times.

The only thing I did for the X today was get on my back and wash as much of the under carriage as I could get to. Tried to get as much salt and crap off the car as possible. Then I washed her with HOT water and BMW soap. Then topped her off with about a cup of anti-freeze (BMW). Everything is working perfectly... fingers crossed and knocking on wood

Put in a third row seat and a twin turbo....

Actually, re-routed my satellite antenna (from front to back) and will be doing an expansion tank replacement.

Got her a wheel alignment. She's straight as an arrow now. Cursed out the tech though. Moron set my psi @ 50 as opposed to following whats recommended.

I know she needs a wash, but this darn snow in NYC is crazy. Glad my Conti's DWS are awesome!

Well guys, I enjoyed reading all your articles on this thread and some on the other threads. Sadly, I am giving up my X5 possibly next weekend. I got her not even a year ago. I put in a little bit of mods: powdercoating the 20" staggered Y-wheels, smoking the tails, replacing the grilles with black ones, and installing the x-pipe. She's pretty much blacked out. I really love this car but we must part ways. I live in Pasadena, CA so if anyone out here is interested or may know someone, let me know before I turn her back in. She's an '03 X5 4.6is, black, $80K miles only, recently serviced and has really good set of tires, not even 1 year. Thanks X5ers!

Bought some tires for her and made plans for a deceptive skid plate
