PDC Failure message on start up

Hi Guys,

This is my first post I need some advice, I recently slightly unclipped my front bumper towards the right. The kerb was higher than expected and the bumper was forced on as I was moving forward slowly. I then reversed the car to get it off the kerb and the bumper unclipped it self on the right side if sitting in car. I then immediately noticed the PDC fail message appearing. I think I may have unclipped the wiring. The back has now also stopped working. Itís my understanding that the front clip if disconnected will shut off the back also.

Is there any way I can access the clip/main PDC connection without having to take off the whole bumper? Or pay hundreds of pounds to a BMW garage.


Any help, images, diagrams would really be appreciated.

Its a 2006 520M sport.

In short, no, your going to have to take your bumper off.

Out of curiosity, is that how curb is spelled in the UK or are you trying to be cute?

Spelt correctly

(Engineering / Civil Engineering) a line of stone or concrete forming an edge
between a pavement and a roadway.

Is it difficult to remove the front bumper?

Not too difficult, I am sure there are some diagrams online on how to unscrew and remove the bumper. If you are uncomfortable DIY, may i suggest you bring it to a run of the mill bodyshop. They should be able to help you remove it and you can plug the pdc back in (assuming this is the issue). I wouldn't pay anymore than $50 U.S. to do this.

It's interesting how you guys use kerb and we use curb.
