    Sometimes when I turn the car off and take the fob out, the brake lights and front lights stay on. If I put the fob back in the car it won't start. The only way to get it to start is to disconnect the battery and connect it back again. Some days this happens 3 to 4 times My mechanic has...

    Hello, I have recently disconnected my negative battery cable in hopes of clearing a troublesome code. Since then, my car acts as if it doesn't have Bluetooth, as in the R/T and Call buttons on steering wheel produce nothing when pressed. No "searching" or "loading phone book", just nothing...

    I have a concern. I live in a condo with no ability to plug in a battery charger in the parking garage. I will be going away for two months. What is the downside of letting the battery go dead and using a booster to get the vehicle started when I get back home? I have been cautioned that I...

    Hello All, I've got an oldish (1993) E36 320i that I don't use very often (probably once a fortnight). As it spends most of its life parked up the battery tends to drain over time. I'm not sure whether this is a parasitic drain somewhere as my electrical knowledge is rubbish and I wouldn't...

    Hey, I have a factory-installed radio/CD player in my 2002 325i and have enjoyed its sound for the past 6 years. My husband disconnected the battery to dissasemble and work on the driver's door, which was not unlocking. He re-plugged the speakers and airbag to re-assemble the door (which now...

    I replaced the battery in my BMW 330Ci convertible. I set the time and date in the computer/navigation screen however when I turn the engine off and start it up the date and time are blank again. Do I need to initialize something since I disconnected the battery?
