Since Friday I've been getting 105 errors with quickbooks and amex.
If i try to re-connect the account I get the following error -
The American Express (Australia) site is down for maintenance.
Try connecting again in a few hours. (105)
If I logon to web banking with Amex that all works ok, so it's definitely a quickbooks issue.
Thanks for posting here, @CJ_Aus,
I want to share some information about this error you're getting. This is usually caused when QuickBooks is unable to connect with your bank because of undergoing maintenance or have server issues.
To resolve this, try refreshing the bank connection. Use the Update button to sync bank transactions into the system automatically.
Next, sign-in to the bank website and see if there is an ongoing maintenance. We need to make sure everything is working on their end.

Let me know what happens after trying out the steps. I'll be waiting for an update from you so I can help you further anytime. Have a good one!
In the hopes of trying to resolve this issue for you, I would like you to try re-connecting to your bank account.
To do this, please select the pencil icon when you select your bank account in the banking tab, then select Edit Sign In Info.
Proceed to put in your Amex account details and continue.
Sometimes all you need to do is enter your account details again and it will refresh the connection between your bank and QuickBooks Online.
Let us know how that works out for you.
Thanks for bringing this one to our attention, CJ_Aus.
I appreciate you for performing the troubleshooting steps provided by my colleagues. The banking error 105 usually means there may be a problem on your bank's end. It's possible their website may be undergoing maintenance or have server issues causing online bank connection issues to QuickBooks.
Since it's beyond 48 hours and the same thing happens, I'd suggest contacting our Customer Support. From there, they'll pull up your account in a secure environment and investigate what's causing this issue. You may send a message via chat, call us at a time convenient to you, or we’ll get in touch with you instead. Here's how:

Thank you and please let us know if you require any additional assistance.
I had the same issue. Did all the "fix" suggestions myself before coming here and none of them worked. Called customer service from the chat. Logged a problem after being on the phone for 1 hr+. Never heard back on my case. 5 days later amex "worked" for 2 days and for the past 7 back to "Try again later". This is NOT an AMEX issue as has been pointed out by several people - we can log into AMEX no issue. Something is wrong with Quickbooks and nobody is addressing the issue clearly.
Thank you for following up in this thread, PatAdv.
As mentioned by my colleague Jen_D, this usually caused by the bank system that is undergoing maintenance.
Here's how you can update your bank's connection manually:
This will help refresh your bank's connection into QuickBooks.
If you still see the error, wait for 24 hours and update again. Otherwise, you can reach our support team to help you connect your bank properly.
Let me know if you still have questions or clarifications about banking. I'm always here to help. Have a great week!
Just wanted to add to this thread. I had this issue all throughout April. I did all of the troubleshooting steps outlined in this thread AND spoke to a QBO support member. The integration worked for 1 day back on May 4th and has not worked since. This integration has practically been broken (for me) since March. What is going on?
Wow - this is EXACTLY what happened to me too. It worked again after being broken for a while for ONE DAY in May. And now it is broken again for 13 days! There is NO possible way a team of people older than 3rd graders could possibly be taking this long to FIX something so SIMPLE. It makes you wonder if Quickbooks is even adding correctly when it is WEEKS and they tell everyone they have a TEAM OF PEOPLE WORKING AROUND THE CLOCK on fixing it. B*S**t.
I understand that you need to download the Amex transactions to QuickBooks Online. Let me share some details about it.
As mentioned in this thread, the American Express connection is working fine. However, I would suggest you contact our Support Team so they can further investigate the issue you're experiencing.
In the meantime, you'll want to manually upload the bank transactions. This is another way to bring in the transactions into QuickBooks Online.
For more references in managing the transactions, please visit this page: Banking and transactions.
I'll be here if you need anything else. Take care!
AlexV - I saw your reply notification hit my inbox and saw your comment that the Amex connection is working fine. I just checked, and it is NOT working. I don't know where you got information that it's working, but the Amex connection is still NOT working.
100% Correct - IT IS NOT WORKING AND HAS NOT BEEN WORKING FOR WEEKS. People also need to stop suggesting that we click "Update" in the upper right hand corner and other stupid comments. We all know full well how to work the AMEX connection and to suggest we are so stupid as to not know how to operate this simple software (when it works) is insulting. We have all tried to connect/disconnect/reconnect our accounts, daily go press the "Update" button, and we are all left wondering how such a simple connection could stump a team of professional engineers when a 3rd grader could probably create the code. The AMEX website is not the problem either. I have endured the pain of calling over to the foreign support desk 3 times now. They try to tell you it's AMEX's fault when clearly i can log into the AMEX website and see my card without issue. It is seeming more and more like this is a case of CORPORATE INCOMPETANCE AND BUREAUCRACY. You can bet if the CEO of Intuit had this problem it would be a "TOP" priority with 3 developers in her office working on the case 24x7.
I have not been able to get QB to sync with Amex for over a month. I have done all the suggested fixes as well and nothing has worked. I tried the suggestion to delete the link and re-link, and now I can't establish the link at all. This is not fixed, and as everyone else stated, it's not a problem with the Amex site as I can log on there fine. The error I am receiving is OLSU1013...I am so frustrated I could pull my hair out...any help anyone can provide would be welcomed.
