ETC message in Idrive

Recommended Posts

hello to all,

I m have recently brought a 320i 2010 with CIC and there is annoying message from ETC card option everytime you turn the card on it says ETC not inserted so I m checking if someone would know how to turn it off. 

Regards,

omi

Way off is it a Japanese import guessing electronic toll collection or similar would require a scan and turned off or pull the fuse.

thanks for your reply Allan,

 

Just to check if you would by any chance know that where would that fuse be.... My one is in the back of the mirror and its quite alloying to be true.

it appears that it is a device for collecting tolls on Japans roads so guess was correct. A quick google and take your pick https://www.google.co.nz/search?source=hp&q=what+is+etc+in+japanese+cars&oq=what+is+etc&gs_l=psy-ab.1.3.0l4.1707.4419.0.10503.12.11.0.0.0.0.231.2128.2-10.10.0....0...1.1.64.psy-ab..2.10.2122.0..0i131k1.dREjWcS31DQ

Their might be a solution to your problem in their

If the message is audio, as in the car speaks the warning to you then it's the same as my X5 was. I had the dealer remove the system (or at least disconnect the speaker) as part of the purchase. 

I realise that's not a solution as such but it means that you can at least have a competent auto electrical person remove it for you.

I had a word with the dealer fir BMW here and they said that the only option is to take that mirror off and put a new one in and that would be very expensive so i thing I will leave it like this as there is no sound but thanks anyway

Good on you for finding a solution to the problem. Only my opinion shame on the firm concerned surely they know their own product range isn't that what a dealer ship is all about and then to say it will cost $1600 for a new mirror. Urrr

that's correct Allan, They should have know better but I hope that this thing will help someone else and will save sometime to go and look for a solution through the dealer.
