So I have a BMW 745li from 2004. With 100,000 kilometers on the odometer.
Last year, I didn't turn it on for 2 months. (March 2020-May 2020)
When I tried turning it on afterwards, it would only crank and won't start.
The fuel pump is working.
I've installed a new battery.
Hi Bimmerfest! My wife and I are happy to now be a part of the Bimmer family (first BMW ever) :)
We recently purchased a nice 2003 BMW 745Li in and out quite clean, 50k miles, all electrical stuff inside seems to work (except the trunk which I'll get to soon), but it has a lot of engine code...
Hi I have a 2003 BMW 745. Yellow light for parking brake on dash. I feel like car wants to drive if not for parking brake. However, I could not put car into neutral with manual override. I thought I heard parking brake motor tonight trying to work.
My guess is I have the bad gear problem...
Hi all, I'm writing a DIY about how to replace the hood release cable on E65/E66. I did it on an E65 745i 2003. Please note that :
No special tools.
This is clearly a DIY job. Takes less than 1 hour.
This does not explain how to open the hood if the cable is snapped in the middle
Not sure if this is the right place to post this, feel free to direct to the appropriate section of the forum.
I have two 745's that I am parting out. One is a 2002 745Li and the other one is a 2003. I have a lot of good parts from them.
I posted some of the parts on my Ebay store...

After some searching I did not find this info, so wanted to add what I ended up doing for my 2002 745 Real Wheel bearings.
The 2002 rear wheel bearings are held to the chassis with 4 bolts similar to the E39. But unlike the E39, there is not enough room to get a socket in to remove the bolts...
First things first - I drive an 05' 745Li
I managed to lock my keys in my trunk. I loaded my arms full of stuff, set my keys down to get more stuff, then forgot to pick them back up.
I called my insurance company and they sent a lock smith out who was unable to get into the vehicle.
Hey there. I've searched a lot through the forums but it's a little hard to find what I'm looking for.
2004 745LI. Basically I have this slow to moderate oil leak. I opened her up and pretty much pinpointed the issue. It seems to be a little plastic looking hose. I have no idea what it is or...
I live in two places and have a 03 745 that sleeps for 6 months a year. I keep it on a trickle charger and turn the battery switch in the trunk to the off position while I'm gone. I have a friend come in, start her up and take her for a spin once a month.
I came back last year and the nav was...

As the titles indicates, I am having some power issues with my 745.
I've been doing the same route three-four times a week. A 80km distance highway with little to none traffic.

So I'm having complications with this headache of a 7er not starting. I caught it for a decent amount, so the issues weren't a problem, it was however, in Reduced Power mode at time of purchase, showing error P1057 & P1060. I bought it in April and as far as I know it's been sitting for the...
it happened that i got lucky and bought a 2002 E66 745iL GCC spec.
the problem is that it used to have coolant leak so i started to fill it with that greenish fluid coolant from BMW.
I've replaced too many things regarding the coolant system all new and original parts (like water...

I recently took apart my 2006 BMW 750I rear window shade to see why it wasn't working. I put a 9v battery on the motor terminals to test if the motor was still in working condition. It WORKED. So then I began tracing the wire that plugs into the actual window shade to the front of the car and...
