    Hi all, I have a fresh battery where the cat will start and stop several times.no issue. If I leave it for 3,4 days , the battery becomes exhausted. What would cause this? The only thing running is security with doors locked. Why would it become depleted in such a short time. Nothing else...

    Hi guys! I recently bought an 545i. I wanted to change something in the Idrive. Such as welcome lights and change somethings with the heating. But everytime I try changing something in the settings it changes back in like a half second. You can actually see the check mark appear and later get...

    Hello, I found a 2005 BMW 545i with a 6 speed manual with 84,000 miles and a clean title. If It is in decent condition and a certified mechanic checks it out all is good and I could get it for a good price would this be a good car now and in the future ?

    Hi Guys, please bare with me... Been Browsing this Forum for awhile, however this is my first post. I'm from South Africa, and recently got an E60 545i. Car ran well for a week and after a short trip refused to start (started and stalled immediately), DME was found to have water damage. Dme was...

    My boyfriend just used the BimmerFix Stent to fix a weep hole leak that we had in our 2005 545i. While doing so, he removed the bolts in the crankshaft pulley and took it off it's alignment so that he could reach all of the bolts he needed on the water pump. The installation video said not to...

    Hey there, So I have a 2004 545i with 206k miles on it. The car has a few issues with abs and air bag, but the most annoying is that the AC is not working. The motor will blow but it is hot air. Hooked gauges up, no fluctuation, so I'm pretty sure the compressor isn't working. Pulled up INPA and...

    Hey Bimmerfest. I've been lurking through forums for a long time now trying to find an answer to my problem but have not found anything definitive. Now, it's time to create an account and ask for your advice. The problem is the transmission goes into failsafe shortly after driving but then...

    Broken water pump bolt 2005 Bmw 545i I was reinstalling my water pump on my 05 545i. During the process of tightening I snapped one of the long m6x100 bolt. Part of the broken bolt is about 1-2 inches into the hole. My bolt extractor is not long enough. Do anyone have any idea how I can remove...

    Hi y’all! I’m about at my wits end with my car currently! I have a 2004 545i with just under 60k on the odometer. I’ve been driving it for a year and put about 15 thousand miles on it and when I first got it I had an issue where an “over heated engine” warning would appear on the idrive then...

    Hey folks, a new owner of a 2005 BMW 545i. So I've been doing countless hours of research to find heaps of information on diagnostics through the OBD port through programs like INPA and such. Unfortunately, I have not found an up-to-date guide on where/how to install INPA or anything. I don't...

    Hi all so I just bought an 05 545i and the check engine light came on about an hour and a half after it was bought driving home. I scanned the codes I had a few others like an evap code and transmission issue I'm fixing. But the last 2 are P1057 and P1059. These seem to correspond to the...

    I have 2 keys for my 2005 BMW 545. Both of them stopped working around the same time. I bought a new key from the dealership and this new key still doesn't work. I checked door and remote door related fuses 10, 12, 11, 27, 22, and 24 and they're ok. Does anyone have suggestions on what I...

    I***8217;ve recently bought a 550i because I decided it***8217;s now or never to finally own a V8. For the wave-of-torque style acceleration, and for the noise, of course. And I***8217;m very dissappointed with both. (Regarding acceleration, I started a related thread months ago (the thread...
