Hey how are you

The P1720 , is no Can Bus communication with DME ,you losing dme communication, off course will shut down but is a dme issue or wiring to oit or a component on the engine causing it like ckp sensor , maf , cam etc ..

do you know how to check for fuel & spark ?

How long does it take to start stalling after idle ,when it gets hot

what scanner you are using on it basic code reader

what year exactly is the bmw 745 ?

is the ckp sensor been replaced ?

lets start here and we go from there

Please let me know

Thank You
