X5 E70 3.0d Start issues
Hi All

I have a question for the X5 junkies out there.

I have a problem trying to start the X5 - it will crank and crank and not start. I read somewhere that it may be the FOB, so the spare key was retrieved, put in, and an attempt to start was made. Believe it or not, it cranked over a few times and then started. The original key was put in and it also managed to start it after a few cranks.

Now my question is this - is the starting issue possibly caused by the electronics - i.e the FOB/immobiliser etc or is it mechanical?

I was told that my glow plugs would need to be replaced at some stage, but I have no errors show up about glow plugs or glow plug controller issues.

Any help out there would be greatly appreciated.

Anyone else suffered this at all?

P.S 2007 model with 170k on the clock
