air condition

  1. F10 / F11 (2011 - 2016)
    Hello guys, I am hearing some short noise when I turn my AC ON and OFF. It feels like the noise is from somewhere under the hood (not directly from the outlet of AC) and it hears like the sound of honking of ships. It lasts like 5 seconds and disappears. The AC is working very well. But is it an...
  2. 7 Series - E65 / E66 (2002 - 2008)
    Everything looks like its on and functioning on the control unit but no air is being blown out at all. No matter if I press Max AC or turn the knobs manually, no air is being blown out, hot or cold. Any ideas of what could be going on? Also, one weird thing that was going on prior to this was...

    Hello guys, Here to seek some usefull advice from you smart lot ! . I have a 2012 plate BMW 5 series (520d) M sport. My AC was not working after a few months (air comes but not fully cold) . I refilled the AC at BMW dealer, however, it didnt work.. it still gave out warmish air. I took it to...

    Hey, I drive a 2000 540i with 124,000 miles on it. Ever since I bought the car about 6 months ago it hasn't blown cold air. That has never been an issue because I live in Florida and it rarely gets cold enough to use the heat. But recently whenever I accelerate water leaks from the bottom of...

    I was adjusting my heat a couple of days ago and the entire climate control panel shut off. I check what I thought were the fuses, based on the fuse panel description, but they all looked good. I also noticed one light was still on, but everything else dark/blank/not working. I order a used...

    I have a 2006 325ci and have been experiencing some AC issues. Recently my AC has stopped blowing COLD air and I have begun the process and trouble shooting the issue. I had a mechanic look at the AC briefly last time I took the car in, but did not want an entire diagnostic due to the hefty...
  7. E36/7 Z3 (1996-2002)
    I have a 1997 Z3 (as my username suggests), and live in SoCal. We've been having a heat wave, and the AC recently stopped working during it. It now puts out hot air only. Very uncomfortable! A mechanic is saying I need a new compressor. Flushing and recharging didn't work. :cry: Estimates to...
  8. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    I am having issue with my air conditioning blower speed. The blower slows down then goes back to speed again. It does that randomly and over and over very rapidly. Display is set at constant high speed and it does the same thing in auto mode as well. It still maintains cool temp but the blower...

    does the 1995 bmw 318i convertible FRESH AIR GRILLE CENTER contain the manuel blue connecting cable or the regular plug in cable?
  10. 7 Series - E65 / E66 (2002 - 2008)
    Ok, this is kinda weird. So lately in SoCal it's been about 90-100 daily so i'm using Max AC all the time. For about 2 weeks now, the Max AC turns off after about 30 seconds and fans go to lowest setting. I press Max AC again and again after about 20 seconds now shuts off. However if I manually...

    So i have a 525xi that just hit 127K miles, Unfortunately it is having a few issues. The serpentine belt was recently replaced by the previous owner, and now their is a whining noise so i believe he messed something up. Ill try and describe the whine best i can, it matches the RPMS and causes...
  12. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    I am faced with a ventilation problem. All lights on.... no AC, no defrost, nothin.. After doing some reading I decided that I should replace the final stage resistor on my 328 as this was apparently a common problem.... nope, all lights on, no air blowing at all.... Do i need to replace the...
  13. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    The air condition on my 2006 530i is possessed. There is no rhyme or reason as to when it will come on or turn off. The majority of the time, when I start the car, the fan blows on high speed for about 5 seconds and then goes down to low speed. There is cool air comming out of the vent. My daily...
  14. E36 (1991 - 1999)
    Hi, I have a 1992 325i and the A/C needs a recharge but i went in and they said i will need some seals and stuff replaced which i dont want to pay for right now since winter is around the corner... But my dad said in his old truck the freon went low and it seized the pump and snapped the belt. i...

    My bmw 323i 2000 ac/heating stopped working it slowly shut down when i first bought the car it was working perfect about 9 months later the ac started acting up it would shut down by itself then i had to turn it back on and then it would shut down and i wouldnt be able to turn it back on it...
  16. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    Hi, I live in Atlanta and it's 100 degrees. During the day, my AC feels like a 100 pound dog is breathing on me. It barely gets cold at all. At night or when it gets cooler, it's freezing. I have to turn the fan down to 1. I've had the freon exhausted in the last 2 months and replaced twice...
  17. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    Hi everyone. I am trying to figure out what could be wrong with my AC system. It wasn't too efficient last year (kind of ok during regular summer, but not enough for very hot days) and became weaker this summer and few weeks ago I found there is no cold air at all. Before it died, it can stop...
  18. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    My mechanic scanned my car and found an error stored in the environmental control (IHKA) that says something to the effect of "hot water valve shorted to B+". I am having an intermittent problem with the valve blowing hot water through the heater core and overriding the AC. This comes and goes...
