edjack, this is Colin Campbell from Roadfly days. I just bought a 2013 F10 535i 6-speed, and my 2001 E39 will be delivered to a friend as soon as she returns from her bicycling trip in Italy. With a "new" (17,000 miles!) car, I've returned to Bimmerfest. Also, I've been in touch with Viv, Peter Krause, and Peter Aweeky. All still have their E39's. Aweeky says he is still in touch with Randy, SheBee, and Oz540iT (Lloyd).
I saw a post on the F10 forum about problems with the A/C fan, and recalled the final stage unit (I actually dug up the part name from my old, failing memory). That got me wondering if Jim Cash is still an E39 guy, or has moved to a newer car. Do you know?
How are you and your beauty? Are you keeping your E39 forever?
hi this is me the guy about the p0014 codes
thanks for the reply edjack
i didn't change the solenoids i just switched the exhaust for the intake one but before i changed them around i disconnected the exhaust solenoid and cleared the codes and got P1531 "B" camshaft actuator circuit open so i switched them and then cleared the codes again and with the solenoids connected i got the p0014 again and then i unplugged the intake which used to be the exhaust solenoid cleared codes again and got the p1525 "A" camshaft actuator circuit open so now I'm all confused i bought a solenoid already but i want to make sure before i install it. sorry if my info is unclear
