Need to meet someone with a High MID w/ DSP to test something.

Is there anyone in downtown Toronto who would be willing to meet with me very briefly to help me with a problem I'm having?

I have a 99 540i with the High Cluster and strangely a Low MID. PO must have installed an incorrect replacement unit.

My BC button isn't working on the stalk and I assume it's because I have the wrong MID.

I'd like to do a quick swap to see if this is my problem. 10 simple minutes!

Anyone up for it who has a High MID with DSP? I live in the Dundas/Keele area.

Well ... I got the correct MID. Didn't fix the issue but at least my car is correct now!

Did find a neat trick, though.

- TEST 15 in the OBC.
- Go to the A05 reading.
- Press the BC button.
- If the number in the 4th column changes from 0 to 1, your BC button works.
- If it doesn't change, your BC button is broken.

For me, it's time to replace my turn signal stalk as my BC button is broken.

Thanks for the tip. This reminds me of something I did that was really stupid. I was bored driving on the 401 for hours....M5... I started playing with the obc tests while driving. I couldn't remember how to exit though. After a while, it started blinking or doing something unexpected. I was afraid it was going to quit on me while driving! Fortunately nothing bad happened..... I wasn't bored any more though... My heart was racing instead!
