Obviously you want the resistor to be as close to the point where the circuit is closed by the urea as possible. I guess the part would have to be pulled to get particulars on id'ing an equivent. I wonder if the system uses capacitance to measure fluid level? Sometimes shipping charges vary significantly. My current X5 is only 3 years old, and frankly it has been trouble free for the past 95k miles. So this can create problem.
There is a company, who provides the repair of those tanks which makes me think I can do it as well. Hello guys, Avid reader of the forum - great community! He stated that the temp sensor was integrated into the tank, so they replaced the tank. I am guessing a vent became clogged. I do get 20% from the local dealer just saying that I'm from the other dealership. That's how I would approach the issue, but like I said I have not had the sensor in my hand.
Sometimes I have had to clear the faults a second time shortly after refilling the system, but then the system runs correctly for an extended period of time as stated. Some of the chemicals I sell crystallize fairly quickly leaving a solid residue behind. Will wait next year to fix as summer is about to end. My state inspection is due in 6 months. However not all my local dealers I got 3 around working like that. A This is what thinking too.

Right now snow even not melting in my garage After I'll replace the tank I'm planning to disassemble the old tank to take a look inside. Then the next fill-up flushes the residue off the wall, or it falls off by itself, dropping at the bottom of the tank eventually getting into the outlet of the tank. Upon purchase of this service, we will email you the shipping labels along with shipping instructions. I think I can wait you till next weekend : Here is some background of my car. Just fyi :thumbup: Thanks, Ard. I've seen it on every car Ive followed- from 'new to 10 years'.
However, since this trouble code is unlikely to cause a drivability issue, it can be put on the back burner for a short time. Do we need remove some under covers too? Right now snow even not melting in my garage After I'll replace the tank I'm planning to disassemble the old tank to take a look inside. ? It never did this before the active tank was replaced. Due to the electrical conductivity of Urea the level sensor will determine whether the tank level is above or below the respective level sensor position. Anyway, I get the car home, fiddle with the def again, get the active tank to take more fluid and the no start goes away, so at least I can drive it.
He didn't tell me what the code was, but said this was the issue. I also attached the picture for the wires of the connector I'm about to add resistor. On my old tank there is no contact at all on this connector - infinite resistance. Per Rheingold there should be 10kOhm between the first contact and any of the other contacts. Now my car air conditioning doesn't blow cold air any more, not sure if this is corelated or not.
Later took truck to AutoZone and this code was not readable. Based on the response of the system, either proceed with the corrective action or take no further action. Perhaps they may be able to provide the spare part alone: they may be worth a phone call. The fluid will then evaporate and leave behind a white crystallized substance I assume the urea solids which is the build-up seen in my photo. Third time some cables got corroded, but those are not serviceable part so I had to cut the harness myself and solder it. That schematic is with the Pixlfix Mod? And even if it is valid, what it means on an X5 35d exactly. I really don't know whether P205b is a valid code or not.
Installation instructions can be found. Thanks to all for your contribution. I agree this fix seems to work and make sense, just the root cause seems to be unknown, yes? One, is it adding only one resistor? If the tank is somewhat empty, let's say half and plug is not tight the fresh air will come into the tank and urea will crystalize on everything above the level blocking the normal work of the sensors. Plus after you solder in the 10k resistor, you can check your work with the ohm meter. I'm not sure what exactly that is.
