    Hi all, having a conundrum hoping you can help out. I removed my dashboard trim and center console to run a set of wires for custom switch I've mounted in the center console cubby. I had to unclip quite a few wire harnesses (2 from the dashboard trim, multiple from the center console). I've now...

    I have a 2002 BMW 745i with about 130,000 miles. It is in good shape and runs well. I am having a problem with my A/C. The A/C runs fine, but on longer drives (greater than one hour) the A/C stops delivering cool air. The blower works, but no conditioned air. I have brought the vehicle to...

    I just purchased an '08 BMW 528i e60 from a non-BMW dealership. The air conditioning didn't work so the dealer recharged it. At first I could smell the freon and it seemed to blow cold air, but after a day it isn't working. They checked it again and said it's still fully charged (no signs of...

    My a/c has not worked since I purchased my car 2 years ago (awful right?) My dad has been working on my car all weekend and we cant seem to find what exactly is not working. He says the compressor seems fine and that it might just be an electrical problem. Any suggestions on what I should be...

    Hello, A week ago the a/c in my car stopped working. The display still lit up but no air would blow out the vents in the front. Oddly, the rear vents would still blow cold air. This lasted a few days until suddenly I started the car and the front vents were blowing. However only the drivers...

    I sure hope someone can help me out. My AC is not blowing cold, the pulley down by the belt is working fine, it turns on when I turn the air on and everything but it just won't get cold. I charged with freon and it didn't want to take any,....

    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...

    I have a 2002 540i. The air conditioning has worked fine since I have bought the car, never had any kind of problems. I took a quick trip to subway the other day and rode in a nice air conditioned car, when I got back in to head home the fan would not blow any air out of the vents. So again...

    Hello everyone. We have a 2005 X3 2.5l. Recently, when we turn the AC on, it has only been producing cool air out of the two drivers' side vents. The passenger side appears to be producing warm air. This is a new issue, and it is NOT a dual-climate-controlled car. AC works great for the...

    Hey all, I leased my first BMW and I've had problem after problem with my climate systems. I custom ordered the car and it has 60k+ miles. The Problem: the A/C is never cold (keeps leaking) and the heat isn't warm. The heat blows cold. My A/C is always low on refrigerant even with the...

    hEY ALL, So i made the mistake of recharging my a.c without doing my home work. I got one of those kits from autozone ( with the Guage) and followed the instructions. It started blowing cold air, but it really didnt kick in till i got on the freeway. I figured it wasnt all the way full. so I...

    Hey everyone. I came into ownership of a 1997 328i convertible. It's been great. Lately the air conditioner panel inside the car has been acting up. While driving the panel will cut off power and then a few seconds later come back on. Or, I will cut off it's power and it will come back on all...

    I believe I have have a self-inflicted Air Conditioning issue. I noticed my air conditioner was only blowing warm air today when taking a ride for lunch. I set the temp on both passenger and drivers side to 60 degrees and only warm air with the fan on full blast. Usually it's very cold only on...
