I have been getting a 105 error message for 4 days and havent had a issue with my transactions loading from my amex account until now. Ive tried editing login info but keeps giving me the error amex site maintance error 105, but i can log into my amex site fine.
Thanks for posting your question here in the Community. I can provide some clarification for why you're receiving a 105 error message on your American Express account.
Currently, American Express is unable to have transactions import into QuickBooks Online. Users that attempt to update their account will receive bank error 105. The engineering team is aware of this and is working with American Express to resolve this in a timely manner.
Please contact the Phone Support Team so they can pull up your account in a safe environment and sign you up to receive email updates as soon as they become available. Here's how to reach them:
Additionally, I'll keep an eye out for updates and provide them as soon as they're made available to me.
Lastly, it appears that you marked a response as the solution which requested you to call in along with a phone number. This was a third party group and the information has since been removed. Please only contact QuickBooks Support with the number provided in their official contact page. I sent you a PM with additional information.
Let me know if I can be of further assistance. Have a wonderful day.
Update 1: The engineering team has reported this issue as resolved and the bank account(s) should now be ready for use.
I contacted QBO this morning. They said the next update is expected Nov 12th. Which is today. The rep wasn't exactly able to clarify what that means. But in the meantime I just went in and grabbed all the transactions via .csv file and uploaded into QBO as an interim solution so I can continue to reconcile. Unfortunately Intuit is terrible at communicating with end users and allows no access to the engineers actually working to resolve the problem. These banking links become increasingly problematic as more security enhancements are rolled out.
I really don't understand why they don't put better information front and center.
Why "error 105", which makes us all Google around, instead of something simple and descriptive?
I just wanted to take a moment to let everyone know that the Engineering Team is working with American Express to monitor when their website will be available to you again for downloading transactions into QuickBooks Online.
@Jenngine, this post is marked as "Solved/Best answer" by users of the Community. At this time, this is to direct users to the most accurate and up to date information.

Please know that I hear you all and realize the impact that this can have on your businesses and organizations. As soon as an update is received, I, or another member of the Community team, will be happy to update this thread and let every know so that you can get back to business.
Thank you all. Best regards.
I called Intuit today and was told that even though we have been able to sync American Express for years, being told now I have to do it manually via a CSV. Now notice, incorrect error messages, and if correct, poor customer experience. I will be moving to another product if Intuit doesn't fix this quickly.
I just got off an online chat with a QBO representative who first acted like they didn't know what the problem was, and made me go through all the motions of trying another browser, etc., etc., then went on to tell me that AMEX is switching to a different security system, but offered no usable information, and then got defensive when I asked what the procedure would be to reconnect!
