  1. Hello all! back with another enquiry, with cold weather here in the UK Iโ€™m coming across a problem on morning when Iโ€™m starting the car on idle the car revs are bouncing up and down slightly, the lights are diming ever so slightly too. Battery has already been replaced a while ago not more than a year with Bosch s5 so good reliable battery in. Iv noticed this happens when the heater blower is on. When I turn this off the revs stop bouncing so was wondering if anyone can help?? Once the car is fully warmed up Revs doesnโ€™t bounce and everything runs fine it only happens on cold ?
  2. Yes but the actuators are hard to repair and if the turbo is on its way out then better off repairing both. Any ideas anyone where to get a decent turbo for my car including actuator. Not refurbishment.
  3. Yeah it goes up depending on pressure of pedal, next move now is turbo๐Ÿ˜… been getting charge air pressure actuator Code now and then and seems like an electrical actuator on these later cars. Might just end up getting a new turbo as car isn't as powerful as it should be ! Got new clutch and flywheel done and also swirls blanked.
  4. Thanks so much for the support and respond guys much appreciated ๐Ÿ™‚ I ended up biting the bullet just couldn't take the annoyance of the light and being messed about. I made bmw replace them both. And so far nothing has come up and it usually would of come up by now so it's been fixed ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ The readings fluctuate arround -0.7 for both when idle and then when pressed 80+ which I'm assume is right ?
  5. No worries, thanks ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ May give the parts back to the owner as he was adamant this was fully working and had no errors on his car !
  6. IV got the code read through ISTA+ 2 faults came up one being 'charge air pressure actuator' which i plan to just change the whole turbo on this car the othe error which more concerned about is 005E20 pressure sensor 1 getting it booked with dealer to get both replaced for good regardless. Am i right in replacing these 2 ?
  7. Prior to this the previous one you could see a slight leak from the connector, the leak is no longer present on this one. Wondering if the codes need clearing on the car or if it's something else ?
  8. The attached is what I changed. I replaced with second hand one which had no problems.
  9. Hi guys, stumbled and confused with what's going on and really irritating me with the lights on my car have both these lights up on my car, had it diagnosed as brake pressure sensor. I checked and both are outside, so I got a whole unit and had the brake fluid changed same time. The light stayed on constantly and after driving for abit the light went off. The problem is the light comes back on now and then. Is there something I'm missing ? thanks
