I had that on my 320d 3 years ago.
It was running fine no problems starting hot or cold.
Turned it off one day and went to start it 5 minutes later and it would not fire up just kept cranking.
Got it recovered to my house and did a code scan can't remember what it came up with.
I mentioned it to a m8 who is a bmw indi and he just said "electrical" (he is a grumpy bas****).
Went home and took the covers off and i could see dust like on one of the injector pipes where the wires for the injectors cross.
I lifted said wires put a rag under them and turned the key it started as normal.
Self-Amalgamating tape on all wires and ok so far.

Did you fit new vacuum pipes.
If not then check them for splits.

I think you can buy a long lead to run to the rear of the car but i am not sure how it works for the cd player.
Somebody had butchered all the cables in the back of my car before i got it.
By butchered i mean they had removed all the cd/nav and whatever was in there and joined a load of wires for the speakers to work thank god the front end was still the factory plug.

Just changed mine over from the WINce version to the android one and so far i like it.
Easy to fit and come with all bit's needed.
I thought i had a faulty CANbus adaptor that i returned for a replacement with no problem but it turned out i had missed a small plug in the back of the unit.
This is the one i have just fitted (also the radio reception is fantastic which is a first).

I gave mine a spray of silicone stuff and  good wipe to clean the fronts.
Then pulled the plugs of and sprayed them then put them back on and off 2 or 3 times.
That sorted mine out.
Forgot to say it was when i first got the car and i had the beeeep and the flashing green light.

Problems / Re: Battery kill switch

I put a AGM battery on my 320d after i had a spate of faulty varta batteries 2 in fact one faulty on delivery and the second lasted around 15 months.
Personally i don't find the AGM any different to any other battery it still needs charging often due to infrequent short trips.
In fact it is in my shed on charge as i put the Yuasa YBX5110 that i bought for the x5 to see if it lasts any longer.

I ran a feed from the reverse light with no relay.
Working for over a year now with no problems at all.

Seen 2 disasters of late people plugging charging devices into the OBD.
Be careful.

I bought one adaptor but it comes up in torque app "no ecu found".
When i look at adverts they all say "diesels cars from 2004".
I have a creator c310 scanner that works ok so i know the socket works.

Is there a Bluetooth adaptor that will work on a 2002 diesel.
