I have been searching everywhere and left various postings on this site but still unable to find where the MPM is located on my car, it is not in the trunk (2007 530XI)

This is what my trunk looks like......

It looks like someone has already relocated it to one of the rear fenders. Check REALOEM for the part number and take a look in the trunk for it.

Take the shrouds off on the corners of the trunk that cover the tail lights. I bet its behind one of those.

Hey Boston I did a little research for you. The Micro Power Module is part of the Body-gateway Module in you car.

>up to 09/2005: The micro-power module (MPM) is located in the spare-wheel well. ne > From 09/2005: The MPM function is integrated into the body-gateway module (KGM).


This unit is under the dash behind the glove box.

Thanks for the information, I was hoping that the mpm was related to my recent loss of my CCC. But based on the information on that site it appears that this would not be the problem.

My Computer seems to work since the BMW splash screen continues to stay on my monitor and I can hear the computer running while parked. But I guess I have to bite the bullet and buy a new CCC. So far I have found the BMW very easy to work on as far as brakes, filters etc. I am hoping that this will be equally as easy.

Thanks for your responses on this thread, it has been apprciated.
