Some models don't appear on the first screen. Files need to be added. I for instance don't have E53, but I use E39 as they are the same chassis, and some modules are the same.

How can you know you're getting that code while driving?
I don't think DISA gives check engine lights nor temp faults. What code reader is being used, and are you using while driving?
