528xi 2008 problems

I picked the car up this morning and 0 issue. Car was running very rough. When we leave the daycare, the two messages showed up when I started the car. For example, you can set not only how hot the heated seats should be, but also which part of your body should receive the most heat. Heard a knocking one day and then froze on the highway causing a major safety issue, towed it in after getting stuck in a construction zone with no spare lanes, the shop said there was only one quart of metal shavings oil left.

No further rattling valve lifters. I did not start my car for 3-4 days. Would have been a great excuse to buy a code reader. The center console space isn't what you would consider spacious but that's ok. I checked the battery it was at 50% capacity. The wagon is only available as a 535xi.

There's also an upgraded cruise control system this year. There are a number of high-tech standard and optional additions to the 5 Series that allow it to keep pace and, in a few instances, surpass the rapidly advancing competition. Most significantly, there are two new six-cylinder engines in the 5's lineup. I plan to bring mine into service this week. Two gaskets, very cheap, plas new bolts. I took it in 2 or 3 times, being told the same thing each time.

2008 BMW 528 Consumer Reviews

528xi 2008 problems

The car had this message when we bought it and the dealer said it was a weak battery from lack of use. Over time, increased resistance at the taillight electrical contact points may cause damage to the ground terminal and housing of the connector resulting in an intermittent or permanent loss of functionality of one or more rear lamp functions tail, brake, turn-signal, reverse. The vehicle was not taken to the dealer for diagnostic testing or repair. Replacing the 530i, the 535i comes with an all-new 300-hp, twin-turbo engine. The vehicle was not repaired. It disappeared after driving and it didn't go back on the next time I started the car. However, after about 15 minutes of driving, they appeared again.

Heck if I were to reset the fault and it come back I would then take it in for service. Multiple oil leaks from worn out gaskets repaired. The messages are still there. They said the battery was weak and replaced it free. It's all about computers now. I hate clutter and you can stick anything that doesn't fit in the glove compartment anyway. I plugged everything back in just as I took it off - 3 large cables.

I rolled it a couple times and ended up in a creek bed with no airbag deployment. They claimed that the original replacement part was defective. It seems to happen off and on for me. I asked the service representative if this problem could have caused my battery failure problems. It made no noise as if it was disconnected from the engine.

The failure mileage was 113,000. As soon as I got home I scoured the web to see if anyone else has had the issue and sure enough I came across this site. Have you brought to dealer for a check? This is good news for consumers since most 5 Series are sold with the autobox. Cooling line to turbo bank 2 failed. Just got back from Autozone - no codes. I have the same problem in my '08 528xi. I had problems with the fuel pump thank God while still under warranty.

The symptom was a ticking noise. I had to replace the ball joints a few weeks ago at 55,000km's. R I got this same error code. Sorry to dig up an old post. They don't always turn on when you press the switch.
