It was a "279D Output stage, electric fan" fault. There were two ways to test/force the fan on from within the software, neither worked.

Aux fan?

Hi guys,

That's a smart fix - thanks for sharing that!

I ended up going the hard race adjustable arms on the rear. Mine is lowered via software as I still have the bags on the rear.

The calipers helped, but after exhaustive balancing there is still a vibration. Going to toss on my winters to rule out tires. If not the new tires, then it's a joint somewhere in the front, or the...

Thanks for the tip. I've got a good base or two and found the screws rusted and easily snap. I'll give it a go with the spare mirror and bases and see if I have the same success.

Chasing front end vibration after new front brakes. Solved? Slightly long rant...

Brought it in for oil change and front pads/rotors. Prior to this, slight vibration, but tolerable. The 20" Conti DWS tires are on year 7 and shot, so I knew I was just delaying the inevitable, but I...

I just put an x-pipe on my 4.4 (centre resonator deleted). It has 4.8 mufflers so I assume your Dinans would be a bit more free-flowing. I've lost some of the low end torque doing it (<2,800rpm)....

My mechanic actually did the transfer case reset, and no issues. I'm chasing a vibration in the front end, but that's tires, mostly. Got new rubber on it today and still a slight vibration. Annoying,...

I didn't, but thanks for the reminder. Debating a trans reset too to see if it changes the shifting with the new x-pipe too. But, if I'm in there, may as well - fluid is pretty fresh on both trans...

It's noticeable, more so in automatic than when you row through the gears and keep the revs higher. I'll see how it does when I tow the track car. There is the slipping/surging in manual second gear...
