    I have recently acquired a 2002 530i from my sister. It had been parking in her garage for 4 years and she didn't want it anymore. When i asked her what kind of work it needed she was clueless and just said "it ran bad". I towed it to my garage and popped the hood, I then found that the engine...

    If i sit at idle, my CEL flashes for about 1/4 of a second every 2-3 seconds, slowly increasing in frequency and length, until the CEL just sticks on there and the car comes damn close to stalling. RPM's have dropped to nearly 0 when this happens, but usually hover at about 400. The CEL Code is...

    Started my '13 ActiveHybrid 3 this morning and about 5 seconds after startup, I was greeted with a check engine light.

    Ok so for the last two days I've been neglecting my job, scouring the interwebs trying to find and answer. I've been so frustrated by all these posts that trail off before I find the answer I'm looking for. So frustrated that I finally became a forum member to ask if someone knew the answer...

  14. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    Hi everyone I'm having a hell of a time figuring out why my brake light is on. It's the red "BRAKE" light on the cluster. I put new brake pad sensors in, reset the codes, and the light refuses to go off. If anyone has any ideas why this would happen please enlighten me! :dunno:

    Hi, I just purchased a CPO'd 2011 335d with BMW Maintenance. Love the car. Anyways, I started looking at the CPO paperwork, and realized that it is not as extensive as it once used to be. Specifically that it may not cover Carbon Buildup issues on my 335d. Can anyone that has a 335d and CPO...
