Question: when the frn fails one loses side blinkers, headlights, window control.
In this case the car is unsafe to drive....
So does this extended warranty include coverage of a tow to their facility? It should but I'm not sure..?
I recently found that my 2013 X5 35i with 63k miles has this code as well. I was wondering what it was and will now follow this thread to gain more information. I'm under the mileage and years for the warranty, but dread taking my vehicle to the crooked stealership as unexplained things happen upon leaving. One example is dripping pools of oil all over the garage floor the next morning after servicing, because the mechanic decides to loosen some bolts to get me to come back, true story.
Here is the code that came up with a reference to FRM:
009CC1 - FRM: stepping-motor controller (SMC), left, signalling fault
That is a failure your FRM is responsible for reporting.
The covered failure of the FRM is of electronic catastrophic nature (within the module) resulting in a failure mode where have no control of headlights or windows.
Hi, can anyone shre me the file BMW has for the additional two years extended warranty for the FRM module? I have the exact case right now in which they said my warranty just expired last August. They did a scan on my vehicle and fried the FRM now they want me to pay $1300 to have it fix.
They said according to record August 2010 was my in service date. Still confused because my X5 is a 2011 model. But I was not the first owner so maybe it was manufactured August 2010??
