My bmw x5 4.4 suv keeps blowing instrument cluster. Fitted new alternator but reluctant to fit replacemnt cluster until voltage to cluster checked, how can I do this Driving me mad

Need a little more info,
When your cluster dies, is it everything?
All back lighting? or just the icons don't light anymore?
How about outside lights? tail, brake, marker, head lights, are any of those out when the fuse blows?
Does the fuse blow right away or is it a slow few minutes to hours or days?

I did some checking on BMW X5, seems that this particular vehicle has major problems with everything, so this may take some time to get straightened out.

Make sure that the fuse is not blown by checking with an ohm meter. The circuit that the wheel pilot is on may also have a breaker. Make sure that the breaker is not tripped.

If the unit keeps tripping the breaker or blowing the fuses, then the motor is going bad, or at least needs some maintenance.

Raymarine smartpilot x-5. The fluxgate compass is some 45 - 60 degrees out from the boat compass. I have tried to recalibrate but this does not solve the problem. Any ideas?

First of all - is the boat compass correct? How does it align with COG? Secondly, do you have a magnetic field that interfere with the fluxgate? To test for this you can use the compass on your smartphone or a handheld compass, move about in the boat and keep the phone/compass aligned with the keel. If the heading drifts in the area where you have your fluxgate today, move it.

I have just installed a pilot X5 tiller on my boat. It replaces a ST 4000 Autolhem. I installed the fluxgate compass at the same place than the previous autolhem compass. There is a difference of about...

I suggest you sell that before you have serious problems and no one will buy it. Yeah, that's what I would do... after all the two best days of a boat owner experience are the day you buy it... and the day you get rid of the money pit.

Will this unit fit on a 1973 C&C 30' sailboat? There are 2 extra stainless steel vertical tubes which hold the throttle. Is the X5 mountable on this boat? Thanks. Steve.

No problem Steve!

The X5 is pretty much a universal fit. In addition, the rating of your unit will handle TWICE the laden displacement of your C&C 30. A good fit for your vessel in my opinion. Nice choice!

Good Luck!

How do you open up this machine? I need to get in and do a simple repair--replacing the steam wand. Unfortunately it's so recessed into the case you sommehow have to get the outer shell off to...

The top comes have take the clock out, undo a nut behind it and then you can pry the top off carefully. There are several metal pegs that engage holding clips that you are undoing by prying.
