My First...Not My Last

Hello everyone! I finally purchased my very first BMW. Its a 97' 740iL black on black and I am very excited. I have owned a Audi A6 4.2 a couple years ago. But this car here has been a dream of mine.

I just want to say thank you in advance to all the members on this forum. I have one distinct problem with my newly used BMW. The gear shift console light takes a while to go out and there is a buzzing coming from the driver door speaker as well as the heat/ac control area. I did a google search and it lead me to this website. So here I am looking forward to being a proud and participating member.

Again Thanks To Everyone!!!!!!

Hey Payback
Welcome. Don't know about the console light or the speaker buzz, but the buss behind the radio and temp control is very normal for older 7 series. Not sure about the new ones. I have had a 88 735i for twenty years and it has buzzed very time its shut down. I've been told on many occasions that it's electronic stuff shutting down. My 06 3 series coupe doesn't make any noise most of the time, but once in awhile I notice a hum after turning off the motor. Same reason I'm sure. Good luck.

Thanks for the welcome LGord. I will be doing some trouble shooting for the speaaker buzz. I think I will start by disconnecting the amplifier abd going from there.
