    Okay so my car is '01 525i, Automatic, sedan, M54B25. I love this car, bought it 4 years ago from an owner who neglected it for years. I've mended it and it runs heavenly now. There are no big issues with this car in the last couple of years that would leave me stranded on the side of the road...

    Hey everyone, I have 320i and my DSC light is on since I bought the car and I want to diagnose the problem to be able to disable DSC and some fun :) There is no ABS light, like most of the threads online. I tried to read the computer and got steering angle sensor code. I am wondering where...
  3. F30 / F31 / F32 / F33 / F34 / F36 (2012 - current)
    Hi all, I've been lurking around these forums since i got my F30 in December '21. I noticed an issue when doing an extended motorway drive. The car would throw up 3 distinct warning lights: DSC, TPMS, and Steering drive moderately. The steering would also get pretty heavy (as if the power...
  4. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    I recently purchased a 2001 530i. The trifecta of ABS lamps is on, as well as a check engine light, a dead speedometer, non fuctioning odometer (reads but does not advance mileage), and a fuel gauge that becomes very erractic when the tank drops below ¼. (needle swings from empty to half full...
  5. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    Ok I have a 2008 328i, recently my key fob wasn't working all the time. Like sometimes it would lock the doors sometimes it wouldn't. My bf decides to take the battery out of key fob and completely messes the fob up and I've been stuck in my friends drive way for 5 days. Well I finally had...
  6. 7 Series - E65 / E66 (2002 - 2008)
    Hello folks 2003 745i: recently I started to have intermittent DSC issues. All lights come on the dash (DSC, Brake, ABS,...) and the speedometer reads 0. I also lost the steering assist. IDrive shows "vehicle detects increased body roll in curves". Sometimes the issues clear overnight. The...
  7. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    I've had some abs modules lying around and decided to open them up. Now I have found the error cause and it was a broken silver bond (common issue). Next step was taking the old bonds out and replacing them with thin jumper wire. But the problem is, no matter what I do, the solder won't stick...
  8. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    Hi, so my car didnt pass MOT because airbag and abs light didnt turn on when they started the car. Bought it a year ago and i dont recall them ever turning on. Tried to find answers on google but there's really nothing about it. As im not very familiar with cars i just decided to ask here first...
  9. X3 M, X5 M, X6 M, Z3 M & Z4 M
    Originally I had an intermittent problem with this. But now the ABS, BRAKE, 4x4 LEDs seem to be on permanently and the speedometer in the dash is not moving at all. However when I hook up the OBD2 scanner it reads my speed just fine. Prior to the error lights being on all the time I used to be...
  10. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    Hello, my bmw e91 320d started having some problems today. When i started the car the ABS and DSC lights were on and the iDrive was also telling about problems with tyre pressure monitor. I had no brake booster, the pedal was hard af and could not be pressed. The DSC button didn’t have any...

    270k miles, runs great.... but stuck in Trans. Fails. Prog. Speedo doesn't work when in trans fails. It randomly waits to come on until I stop and then it will come on. It is predominently on though. I have checked all fuses, and researched like a mad man... I still can't figure this out...

  14. X5 E53 (1999 - 2006)
    I have a 2004 X5 4.4i. My brake light and ABS light are always on, but whenever the brake light turns red (seemingly random while driving), the TRANSMISSION FAILSAFE PROG. message displays. When this happens the radio cuts in and out, as well as the speedometer turning off and on. The dealer...

  16. X3 E83 (2004 - 2010)
    Hi everyone, I've either hit jackpot or learned a very expensive lesson. I'm about to pick up this 2008 X3 E83 2.0 Diesel from the auction site and wanted a heads up from you guys about the possible repairs needed. The condition report also noted that the engine was 'noisy'. I've read a few...

    Hello. My BMW's front diferential died after driving 50kilometres with 18 inch wheels front and 19 inch wheels back after breaking a tire.
