    I own a BMW 323i 2011. My car has been parked outside in the winter for about 2 weeks now in -25 celsius weather since the garage was occupied, when I tried starting it about a week into the cold weather to put it back in the garage it would not start on its own or jump starting it, so I assumed...

    My Friends!!!!! Courtesy of the help of my indie shop, Long Beach BMW and BMW America technicians, some trial and error and lots of patience I have my battery charging issues resolved on my GT. Turns out you get codes thrown and stored in the computer for overcharging and ignition faults...

    Hey guys! I'm new the family and a new BMW owner. I bought an 07 530xi last year. Car runs great but from time to time wouldn't start and I would have to jump it. There came a time where I just went ahead and bought a battery charger and would charge over night. However, I left the car...

    Do you typically turn on the headlights/rear defroster/blower, etc. of the dead car or of the donor car (or both cars) just before disconnecting jumper cables? Why? In a recent alternator thread, the wisdom of turning the headlights on the dead car just before the donor cables are disconnected...

    Having driven my 5er less than 200 miles since last August, the "Please recharge battery" message started appearing last week, followed shortly but only once by the "increased discharge..." To cut a long story short, I went ahead and ordered the CTEK battery maintainer. CTEK recommends using the...

    I have a a 2006 E85, about 35k on the odo. In mid 2012 I replaced the battery as it was the original (I bought the car with about 24K on the odo) in 2008. The car was having trouble keeping the battery charged. After I changed the battery, everything seemed fine. Forward to mid 2014: the...

    Hi all, First time poster here! I've read some of the other forums on similar problems but haven't been able to find the answer. I got a new new fob for my 2008 BMW 320d coupe m-sport.
