Re: New to me 15' REX Certified Pre Owned no start REX?

In my case I will have to use the REX fairly regularly due to our remote location. The closest charging station from us is 30 miles away. So I am not overly concerned with the fuel staying fresh going forward. I just bought a bottle of Techron fuel system cleaner to start and will condition ongoing ...

Re: New to me 15' REX Certified Pre Owned no start REX?

Well drove the car on a long trip the other day and when we needed the REX to do a SOC, it would not run and we got an error message and a CEL. I immediately pulled off the highway before I passed the last charging option and plugged in to a level 2. While charging I started to look at the issue. Th...

Re: New to me 15' REX Certified Pre Owned no start REX?

OK I picked the car up yesterday with the following diagnosis and repair: Spark plugs and coils faulty. Full engine diagnostic including compression test (220PSI) and else checked good. They even left the coding I had done so after leaving I engaged the REX SOC and it worked as it is supposed too! V...

Thanks guys, I assume I was in accessory mode and that is why the heat did not work.

Re: New to me 15' REX Certified Pre Owned no start REX?

OK another update. The dealer said the scan showed random multiple misfires on the REX. They changed the spark plugs and coil packs and cleared the codes and that fixed it. They also said heat likely did not work because the SOC was low which makes no sense to me as the car was plugged in and fully ...

Re: New to me 15' REX Certified Pre Owned no start REX?

Well little update. Tried the emissions start hack but the car said I HAD to reduce the charge below 75% to start it, so basically the same as HSOC. So I started to drain the battery then just gave up as it seems the climate control is not working either. I was trying to run the heater to suck down ...

Re: New to me 15' REX Certified Pre Owned no start REX?

Well noted however if the 12V battery is removed from the vehicle or at lease one lead is pulled it should be isolated and not any potential risk that I can see? No matter how sophisticated the rest of the car is it is still a 12V battery that has charging needs like any other.

Re: New to me 15' REX Certified Pre Owned no start REX?

I get home tomorrow so I will scan the car and try to do the emissions engine start hack too. I am guessing that the REX was NOT tested during the Certified BMW process but I could be wrong. The 12V I guess could be causing issues even though it shows good. I might just throw a battery conditioner o...

New to me 15' REX Certified Pre Owned no start REX?

So we found the options, color etc car we wanted but had to buy it out of state and ship it. It is a Panda REX with 14K miles and is Certified Pre Owned. Well I coded the car right after getting it to enable the SOC and the full tank capacity among a few other minor items. I did this before I had ev...
