Ignition leads (cables)
« on: June 02, 2018, 10:13:25 AM »
Hi ALL :)

E53 4.4 2005, (37.000 miles)

 Help please.. had a few starting issues of late.. :( (also cut out me at a set of traffic lights this morning and when restarted was misfiring.. did get started ok and got home..  :) so looking to solve the problem, going to change the ignition switch, fuel filter, spark plugs and also the ignition leads (cables) please can you recommend the best ignition leads to buy..

Any one had the same starting problems which may need a different fix   O:-)

Thank you for any help

Cheers

Andy

You have coil packs on each plug, not HT leads.  £25 - £50 each depending upon manufacturer.

You will probably be better off running diagnostics to see what errors are being reported as it might not be ignition.

Diagnostics would be a great starting point.
