    My air conditioner works for about 12 minutes and then mid drive, a weird noise starts to be heard, as if the air is obstructed. Sounds almost like an electric razor. Car has 161k miles. Perhaps a blower motor issue? Anyone else have this issue? Could it be something other than the blower motor...

    Hello. I have a 2017 540i M Sport and I have had an issue with the air flow coming from one of the vents. The passenger side middle vent barely has any airflow coming out of it. I took it in to the dealer and they are saying that others have had the same issue. It is a programming problem and...
  3. 7 Series - E65 / E66 (2002 - 2008)
    I had this issue when I got the car last July, but it went away as the weather started getting colder. Now that its getting warmer again, the issue is back. Basically, the A/C will come on by itself, and wont turn off. The fan speed also fluctuates by itself. Sometimes it'll turn off after...

    As I begin the restoration of my '96 E36 328ic I would appreciate advice from all you Bimmer gurus. Most are cosmetic since I am the original owner. It only has 89,000 miles and all the service/repair records/reports. Since '96 I have had many other cars in-between, but I still love this car...
  6. E85 / E86 Z4 (2003-2008)
    Hey there folks. I recently purchased a z4 2.5i. The a.c. unit is not working, I was told this occured when the car had its battery replaced. I did some research and I have some to the conclusion that the car is in transport mode. The previous owner also stated that she has the a.c. checked out...

    Hey guys, my AC is making this hissing sound non stop. Anyone heard it before and know for sure what it is? Researching it, it seems different mechanics diagnose different things, some people think they fix it but then it comes back. Seems like people trying to fix this are spending a ton of...

    I've owned my '94 540i for a year. The AC worked well last summer and fall. This spring it worked fine but about 3 months ago it started acting up. It blows cold when it works, but it seems to have a mind of it's own. It's now working occasionally, and the green light only come on when it works...
  9. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    hi Just made and overall HVAC replacement, evaporator, compressor, external evaporator ... The first 2 days the AC was cold as ice", yet I feel that the blower is not as strong as before, 3rd day the cooling started to be less. I noticed when I start the car, the Ac blows hot air, until I press...

  12. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    I was driving today on a somewhat warm day. I turned on the air conditioner and noticed white smoke coming out of the vents inside the car! I quickly turned of the a/c light(green light) and the smoke stopped. If I run the fan without the a/c nothing happens. If I turn on the a/c light a thick...
  13. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    Any help would be greatly appreciated. I have an 01 BMW 330ci and an 02 BMW 325ci with what appears to be a very similar problem. When you cut on the ac, the compressor blows cold for 5-15 minutes, then the compressor cuts off. It will cut back on after 10-30 minutes, but never anything...
  14. X3 E83 (2004 - 2010)
    my great Miracle of Austrian Engineering (once again) started blowing hot air instead of cold air. 2 years ago I fix this problem by adding the coolant from Napa. This February my mechanic criticized me for that and said that he replaced old coolant with bmw approved and everything should be...
  15. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    Hi, hope things are going well. I have a service light flashing that looks like a fan next to a rectangle filled with small "+". From the information I could find so far it could be either Cabin Air filter replacement or air conditioner item. I've included a picture of the service light. I've...
  16. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    The air conditioning will not always blow cold air, and it seems that it is dependent on the outside temperature. If it is a cooler day (50's-60's), it will blow warm air. However, if it is a warmer day (greater than 70's), it will blow cold air. I know it seems strange, but does anyone have...
  17. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    A/C compressor will not start until 5-7 mins after car has been started. The issue does not differ with driving or idling. I have not clocked the time but it seems to differ in delay each time. No, the refrigerant is not low. Yes, the inside controls are set correctly. This is my second 97...
  18. 7 Series - E38 (1995 - 2001)
    Hi, this is my first post so go easy on me. :) I just recently got a 1998 740iL, and during the day, when i'd like to run my AC, it only seems to blow hot air, then, during the night, when i'd like to run the heater, it only blows cold air.. It doesn't matter what temperature I have it set to...
  19. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    My air conditioning stopped blowing one day and it started blowing again about a week later. I was thinking it might be the final stage unit at first, but the fact that it started working again confused me. Also, it is blowing now, but the temperature won't change. It won't get cold or hot. Not...
  20. E30 (1982 - 1993)
    Last year I purchased a wonderfully maintained '87 325ic. After replacing the exhaust system, the only thing left to fix is the AC . I've heard there are two different versions of compressors on '87s, one of which is compatible with the new coolant, and one that isn't. Any idea on how to...
