2008 X5 reset computer
Wife killed her battery on her 2008 X5 while
cleaning it (radio and ac going) I jumpped it now
have a bunch of warning lights ABS, Parking brake.
Not sure how to reset the computer don't need a
big bill from BMW to plug a code reader and hit a
Unhook the negative battery cable from the battery and touch it to the red cable and hold it there for a moment and then plug it back up
Touching your red and black cables together without the battery attached will do no harm i assure you... what it will do is discharge the modules faster instead of having to sit and wait up to 45 mins without having a scanner to manually clear codes
You may have battery programming issues.
I disconnected the battery for 10 min put it back in now I can't get it to start. Auto Zone checked the battery its fine. Charged it and won't turn over at all. Checked all the fuse no luck with starting now
Did you clean and tighten the battery cable ends?
Check your fuseable links
