Ford Torneo 2014

BMW 530 non start fault

We began by connecting the Autologic Assist in order to communicate with the various modules associated with the media system, though we could communicate with all the modules numerous error codes were present in various modules. The next step was to carry out a fault clear broadcast which clears all the error codes in one operation. Once complete we attempted to switch on the MMI and as expected the system still displayed the fault. We then carried out a loop break diagnostic check, this …
