i guess I'd be more annoyed than concerned...unlike engine parts, mechanical assemblies, seals, etc, the DDE (DME in gassers) is either 'connected right' or not.

I could see them replacing the DDE, getting it proigrammed, STILL have the error...and the tech, in utter desperation- becuase HE told puma there was nothing wrong with the sensor or wiring- finally gets down to it and really troubleshoots every connection, all on the QT never telling BMW. Gets it fixed, and reports "the DDE did it"...

I would not be concerned with the battery discharge issue- that has never been attributed ti the DDE. Usually another bad module on the busses.


Keep it as simple as possible...but no simpler.
