engine light on - help

this morning I started the car.. I could feel the car felt a bit "juddery" on idel. I could feel on the pedal it was juddering. and the engine light was flashing on and off and now remains on...

it did this a couple of times in past but from switching car off and on again the light went out. however this time light is perm on.

any ideas what maybe causing this?

Get the codes and post those and you should get an answer. "Light on" could be anything in a very long list.

You can also help us help you better if you would "identify" WHICH 2005 E53 X5 you have.

You could have one of 4 engines BMW used that year...there may be something specific to the N62 V8 engines (4.4i/4.8is) versus the M57TU diesel engine (3.0d), versus the M54 I6 engine (3.0i) that we may be able to point you directly to (as well as pulling the OBD II codes)...but without any model info...we could suggest incorrect information.


You can add this detail to your signature by clicking on the USER CP link at the top left of the page and then look for EDIT SIGNATURE on the left side of the page.

Off the top of my head and definitely just an assumption...it sounds like you may be describing the N62's intermediate lever issue....but this of course only applies if you have one of the N62 engines.

Engine light

What Qsilver said (it sounds like you may be describing the N62's intermediate lever issue).

But......you are showing "9444/03 - Long-time low voltage".....Low voltage could screw up multiple modules....Check the battery and charging system.

This issue is common enough that if you type "BMW N62 intermediate lever issue" into a google search box...you'll have your answer quicker than what we can write.

In fact, the search may bring you right back to Xoutposts...and there should be some links to past threads in the articles, FAQS, & how-tos links along the top of the page.
