Barndoor new issue
 
I have a 2009 clubman. The left rear barn door will not open. After following the directions provided I was able to manually open the door. Using an ohmmeter I checked the handle switch it appears to be functioning. I purchased a new latch and connected it up and it did not work. At this point I applied power to my old latch to see what would happen and it opened. So my question is according to the Bentley book if Iím reading it correctly the wires that carry the signal to operate the latch comes from what looks to be the fuse panel. The kick panel passenger (right side). Has anyone else experienced this issue I was expecting some type of control module. Iíd like to check the wire for opens. I donít want to start throwing parts at it. Also is there a reader for mini to check circuits and such other than the dealer? Thanks

Actuate the rear wipers and see if only one turns on. If this is the case, you may need to re-code the Fuse box. Also called the SPEG unit.

So I tried and one side is not working on the wipers. So I’m going to research recode fuse box now...thanks

any specialty shop should be able to code the SPEG unit. It takes like 5 mins.

So question to anyone in the know, as my searches haven’t really given me much to go on, can I program a “SPEG” with a Fox well NT520. Not sure where I would find directions still looking...thanks..

not sure if you can code the modules with the Foxwell. Go to a Mini service center and talk it over with the service advisor. Maybe theyíll give you a break and code it for a small price. It literally took my guy 5 mins to do.

Fixed... thank you guspi76...

So what I did was with Foxwell NT520. Went into BMW and was able to reset the module and that fixed it Gooder than new.
