Absolutely! I always welcome experiences, comments, feedback, and ard making cracks about my time entries

The first time I removed the battery for charging and testing at the local parts store my X5 also had a 4X4 light on. But I said the same thing in my post about the battery, no sooner than I drove down the driveway that light went out.

Glad to hear that you haven't had any of your other warning lights come back on. I'd like to stay away from all of those, but I know they are in my future. Not if... but when.

Congrats! Take the $200 you saved on the battery, and the $???? on the 'diagnostic fee' to read codes...and head out for dinner this weekend!

Haha.. Nice! Ard. The dealership asked for $450 for battery replacement (battery plus registration) and I did it for $174 which was basically the battery cost. Not only money saved but new knowledge learnt. What a great deal!

As Ard said, just delete the faulty memories to fix the problem. Good luck!

4x4 error can be cleared by turning wheel all the way left and right... It resets the steering angle sensor.
