    Hi, I have a 2011 BMW 750i and I keep getting a message on the LCD panel that my Battery discharged while stopped. I am not sure what that means... Also on my dashboard when I turn off my car it keeps saying charge battery. Has anyone here gotten into this issue?

    Ok, so, in my epic quest to find the (somewhat elusive) cause of the TRANS. FAILSAFE PROG my e39 540i was reporting recently (now solved, thank goodness) I found that something was pulling 85mA from the battery while the car was sleeping. A bit high, I thought. So, after pulling fuses and...
  3. 7 Series - F01 / F02 / F03 / F04 (2008 - 2015)
    I’m a new owner of a used 2011 750li xdrive. When I start my car I get a message that says battering discharging while off and some electrical devices have been turned off. I’ve read where the xdrive needs to be driven often and this one isn’t. It’s a 3rd vehicle for us. Is this common? Should I...
  4. X3 E83 (2004 - 2010)
    I researched a lot of the forums for this type of problem and none that I could find included the fix I found on my car. History: Car Battery would drain even while parked. At first only a bit over long hours parked but eventually a faster drain (within about 15 minutes). 1st I began by...
  5. X3 F25 (2011 - 2017)
    Hi All - I am going crazy with my car! A few months ago I left the hazard lights on for an entire day. Since then that "increased battery discharge" light has been coming on, but never really had an issue starting the car. I took it to the shop and had the battery replaced, they said battery...
  6. X5 E70 (2007 - 2013)
    I just posted about throttle sensor issues and am also noticing that something is draining the battery in my 2008 E70 4.8L. I just replaced the alternator and battery for the second time within one year. Has anyone else encountered this? Any theories on what could cause it? I read that...

    Hi Bimmerfest Experts: I have a 1999 528i that has some sort of electrical issue causing the battery to go dead after charging in about 24 hrs +/- I replaced the batter 2 months ago and the issue went away for a while, then has returned and at a more frequent rate. If we don't drive the car...
  8. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    My 08 550i has a four year old battery. There are no messages in the iDrive. When I press start the engine sounds like it's cranking normally. But, it does not start. I am not completely convinced about the battery being the sole problem. I temporarily hooked up the battery from my Honda Pilot...

  10. California
    Any reco's for an East Bay mechanic for my E60. Coming to the end of my extended maintenance plan and looking for an alternative to the dealer. Short-term I need a new battery and dealer quote of $780 seems ridiculous but haven't found any other shop willing to do it. Thanks for the help.
  11. F10 / F11 (2011 - 2016)
    I received a message stating battery was low after the car wasn't driven for about 10 days. I charged the battery for about 3 hours until the charger was green, but the charge battery message displayed again. The car starts fine. Any ideas? First time posting here, Briant
  12. X3 E83 (2004 - 2010)
    We have a 2008 X3 Si that has had four batteries BMW-installed by the dealer fail after 3 to 4 months in turn. The security system 'goes to sleep' as it should at the dealership. Although BMW replaced the later batteries under warranty, we are out $500 in shop charges with no idea of the cause...
  13. X5 E53 (1999 - 2006)
    Hi, my X5 2005 battery is being drained each night and if I don't start the car it goes dead. Mechanic says it is the Nav system and it will cost $1200 to have it rebuilt. I am not sure if it is relaly the box or wiring. Anyone else have this issue?
  14. X3 F25 (2011 - 2017)
    Hi Everyone, My dealer replaced the battery on my 20 month old 2011 x3 and told me that I'm not driving the car enough and need to hook it up to some type of battery tender on a regular basis to keep it fully charged. Since I live in NYC and have no garage, I have to park my car in the street...
