Metallic whistle sound when AC is on.

When the AC is on there is a weird metallic whistle like sound that disappears when I turn off the AC but leave the fan blowing. It's almost like a ball bearing going bad or something of that sort....

Sounds like the battery is having issues. Cold start puts a lot demand on the battery. You can test the battery to see what voltage it's putting out.

I swapped the pump and it starts now just fine. Still a bit rough when in part and foot is off the gas but not enough to throw a code (so far).

My car would not start this morning. It's turning over just fine, but when I return the key to position 0, I can hear a very loud whirling sound.

I'm not so sure the part number I posted is for my car. It's listed as part for cars with SMG transmissions. I'll do a bit more research and then post another update.

At this point some of those older BMWs are approaching collector car status, at least in the eyes of the sellers. I see ridiculously priced BMWs in Roundel all the time.

What is code C1110

I'm getting C1110 on my 03 330ci. According to the Internet:



Can someone explain what does that mean? I'm guessing it's not a fuse, maybe a sensor?

Something else that might be related - the little vacuum line from the F connector on the intake boot broke off. I think that goes to the fuel filter. Is it possible that is causing the codes I see?
