Default Hi. New member

Hello all. My name is Brad and I'm new to the forum. I traded my Audi A4 in for an X5 earlier this year. I needed more space and a trailer hitch for a bike rack. I've been pretty happy with the X5 so far, but there are a few things about it that annoy the crap out of me.

1. cant roll the windows up with the key fob.
2. the tailgate rattles constantly
3. the doors do not unlock when you turn the car off

My Audi didn't have any of these problems. Of course, I had to re-code the Audi to allow control of the windows by the key fob. Coding the Audi was suuuuper easy (Ross-Tech). I kind of thought that coding the BMW would be similar. As I look into it more, I realize that is not the case. I have what appears to be the preferred cable for BMW interface and I'm starting to acquire the software required, but it is hard to find all the pieces needed.

I look forward to learning more about coding my car from the community here and sharing my learnings with others.

Default X5 tailgate

Hi Brad

I m also a new member,people call me Mshini but you can call me Bhekie

You can resolve the rattle of the tailgate by adjusting the tail gate 'bottom lid little bit in.
But be carefull -if your boot lid got soft close button -won't work if adjusted too tight.

Windows can close with key lock button unless if therte is a fault on your central locking system
