20 Most Recent 2006 BMW 530xi Sedan Questions & Answers


Hi Allen, In addition to removing the covers did you remove anything else? If not, reassembling should do the trick. If yours is the engine with VANOS and Variable valve lift (with electronically controlled motor, make sure all connection and pick up sensors are good. If you've lost spark and injection, check the crankshaft and camshaft pickup sensors. Regards John

Check first to see if the brake lights work, the brake light circuit is what powers the Park safety lockout solenoid. If no brake lights then it will not come out of park position.

For 2003-2006 X3 models, BMW specified an ever changing list of automatic transmission fluids (ATF) as these fluids became obsolete over time. The current recommendation from BMW is DEXRON-VI ATF, which means the fluid conforms to the GM DEXRON-VI specification.Feb 19, 2013

You will need to go to the main dealer and get the sat nav option added to the spec of your vehicle.

This could be as little as just activation or as much as installing the whole sat nav option.
