E83 3.0d Dash lit up like a Christmas tree .
« on: December 20, 2017, 06:55:15 PM »
I got a call from the wife this afternoon saying thedashboard had lit up like a Christmas tree.
All the warning lights are on, ABS, airbag , 4x4 , yellow tyre pressure indicator, yellow exclamation mark.
I got home from work, turned the ignition on and all was well. After a short drive of 500 yards they all came back on. 😬
Also the electric radiator cooling fan is on permanently as soon as the ignition is turned on.
I've tried the battery disconnect reset and  clearing the codes.
I'm thinking a DSC issue as I'm getting wheel-HR/ right rear 006dA1 . via Carly.
But also AIrbag fault code as well as others.
Car starts ok and have left it on charge.
I hate Cars 😬😬😬😬😬
Any ideas folks, weird about the fan running , sounds like when you stop during a DPF regen.
Edit
Found this relating to HR rear right wheel


Looks like another ABS pump problem, I've just had the E93 one done a few months ago.
Still don't know why fan is running though, hoping an interrupted regen, but it goes off with the ignition.

Our old Mini had the thermostat housing changed that came with a new temp sensor.
After fitting and starting the car the fan would come on straight away.
Swapped for another sensor and it was fine.
Maybe somewhere to start looking.

Thanks, the fan and all the warning lights happened at the same time, so I'm suspecting the ABS/ DSC hydro pump is causing the problem.
I've just read an interesting piece about the DSC system fitted to the E83 , as well as  some other BMW's
It's mind boggling what's involved.
I've put up a link for anyone who is struggling to get to sleep later who might find it a help 😜

Got my X3 back today, all the lights on the dashboard are back to normal.
Turned out to be the same problem as another member had a few months ago.
The reluctor ring on the NSR had been swelled up by a rusted driveshaft and wrecked the ABS sensor.
It has also had a new SAS/ slip ring as this was showing several faults.
The cooling fan running at full speed all the time was sorted as soon as the ABS sensor/ reluctor ring was changed and faults cleared.
The garage had a mare of a job removing the drive shaft as it was seized into the hub as previously experienced by the other member who had the exact same problem . ( Sorry Bubbaspaarx , couldn't remember your name )
