Weirdness after CIC retrofit

Hi,
Completed the CIC retrofit a few weeks ago, and have been getting the reset clock message almost everytime I start the car recently... The battery is only 1.5 years old. Everything has been working fine...

For some reason, he can not read the body or engine control modules to check battery for proper registration.

My indie pulled the codes below... Any ideas?
Air conditioning control panel:
Current fault codes

9C6B: steering wheel heating
Error will not cause a warning light
Error is currently present
Test conditions have been completed
Signal or value below threshold

E723: message (KCAN: status steaming up pane V, 2D1)
Error will not cause a warning light
Error is currently present
Test conditions have been completed

Instrument cluster

A559: clamp 30g-f switch off
Error will not cause a warning light
Error is not currently present
Test conditions have been completed

Roof function control center

A670: BSS Error signal line BSS 0xA670
Error will not cause a warning light
Error is currently present
Test conditions have been completed

Central control unit (CON)

E2D6: error will not cause a warning light
Error is not currently present
Test conditions have been completed
Short circuit or signal interruption

Audio system controller

E1CD: error will not cause a warning light
Error is not currently present
Test conditions have been completed

C5AE: error will not cause a warning light

Test conditions have been completed

C5BF: error will not cause a warning light

Test conditions have been completed

MOST/CAN RADIO GATEWAY CD73/MD73

Error is currently present
Test conditions have been completed

Tuner/digital satellite radio - USA

DE10: ring fracture diagnose was performed
Error will cause a warning light
Error is not currently present

PS everything was reset and came right back on.

The only time I got the reset clock message is when the battery was low. Considering all the wierdness that you are getting, I'd say battery. If you want, I can send you a trace of my CIC which was retrofitted later tonight. Shoot me a PM with your email address.

Hi,
After thinking through this we believe it is the Alternator going bad. The battery is only a year old and tests perfect. When a charger is left on it overnight everything is fine. When the car is started and run several times over the course of the day, the weirdness happens.

In addition, there is an oil leak from the valve cover and the oil is running down onto and into the alternator. So added reason to believe this is the problem spot... Gonna be some serious $$s.

The X5 has 80000 miles on it, FYI

John

Not to say that it is exactly that issue but, my alternator went right after 80k, and that was right after new battery was needed at $75K.
Want to know what went at 95K? Valley cooling cover seal followed by alternator bracket seal, valve cover and timing cover seals.

New Alternator fixed all of the weirdness. Up and running like new again...
There was one little artifact of the CIC Retrofit. See photos.
The service indicator came on for about 3 seconds when starting the X, and the mystery triangle appeared in the service needed menu.

Patryk & MEN took care of that for me this weekend, and all is good in X5 land again

Are you going to do the combox retrofit? I finished my FLA (high beam assist retrofit), and I'm assembling parts for the top view retrofit now.

For the way I use the X, I don't see the Combox making much sense for me. The new CIC does pretty much everything I want.

I think I'm about done on the retrofit front... With all of the repair work that had to be done recently, my car $$s have taken a big hit.

Good luck with your mods, keep us up to date.

Thanks.
