    Hey everyone, I'm new here and would like to get an idea as to when I should replace my battery. Currently, I have a voltage reader in the cigarette lighter and I've been noticing upon startup the voltage that it reads out is 11.1 volts. The question(s) I have are: 1. What voltage should my...
  2. X5 E70 (2007 - 2013)
    SHORT VERSION: I replaced my alternator and the battery died while I was driving. The battery shows that it is charging whenever I test it at home with the car on. The battery voltage changes when the positive battery cable on the distribution box is moved around. Battery cable issue? FULL...

  4. E63 / E64 6 Series (2004 - 2010)
    I have 6501 Convertible 2006. Great beautiful car but am having trouble keeping battery charged. BMW garage replaced Body Gateway Module and battery. When I put the car on battery tender to check % charge from full charge it drops about 10% to 15% a day just sitting in the garage. It is...
  5. F30 / F31 / F32 / F33 / F34 / F36 (2012 - current)
    I'm new to turbo'd cars and im having fun with usual mods (Jb4 and catless DP) but have read here and there a charge pipe is recommended if not needed if you like spirited driving and running map 2. I installed the DP myself and while it was a pain in the ass it was not even close to being the...

    Hello everyone. I am a new BMW owner and also new to this forum. I have a 2013 BMW 328i XDrive with 42,000 miles. Here in western Ohio it got down to 3 degrees last night and a high of 10 during the day today. When I got to work and shut the car off I got a message on my display that read...
  7. 7 Series - E38 (1995 - 2001)
    I've had a transmission problem on my 2001 740i (topic for another thread) which has kept me from driving it for about 6 months. It's been in my garage. I had been starting it once or twice a month and letting it run so as to keep the battery from dying, but failed to do that over the past 3...
  8. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    Yesterday I was passing someone and all of a sudden I lot all power and the dash lit up with all sorts of lights. I had no throttle control at all, now the car's idle fluctuates from 1000 to 1500 RPMS constantly. :bawling: Any insight would be greatly appreciated. Codes: P1732, P1632, P1633...
  9. X5 E53 (1999 - 2006)
    I'm stumped! This past weekend I drove my X5 about 100miles, turned off the car, a minute later got back in, drove another 30 miles, and shut down the car. As I was shutting it down, I noticed it took a while for the windows to roll back up. Seemed strange, but I was in a rush so I ignored it...
  10. F80/F82/F83 M3 and M4 (2015 - Current)
    Hi guys, I been reading all kinds of saying about the stock plastic charge pipe is gonna be a "time bomb"! Is it really that bad? the plastic pipe really gonna explode some day? Why is BMW putting such a under developed part in a M car? I dont know if it is necessary to change the charge...
  11. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    Hello everyone was wondering if someone can provide some feed back I purchased a brand new battery through costco about 5 month the battery doesn't hold a charge what so every! could it be a bad battery ?

  12. F10 / F11 (2011 - 2016)
    Whom, I have a 2012 535i with xDrive and Nav that has trouble keeping a charge in the battery. I see BMW error codes like "Battery discharging while stopped." and occasionally have problems starting the car. What I want to share with the world is that this appears, in most cases, to be a...
  13. F10 / F11 (2011 - 2016)
    Hello All, Firstly, please pardon me if I have posted in the wrong area; still getting used to the forums a bit. I think my 535i battery is acting up with a "Charge Battery" message every time I finish driving, even though I just drove about 1100 miles to VA and back from MA. Its probably time...
  14. Ask-A-BMW-Dealer
    Hi there. I am looking for a new lease on a car, since the one that I have right now is ending next week. One question that I have is the Rent Charge. How is this number calculated? I have a proposal here for a 2014 320i, base model. Also, about the acquisition fee, is this price the standard...
  15. E36 (1991 - 1999)
    My car has been sitting in the garage for 2 months and the battery died. Anyway when we installed it, there was a red wire that came off (pictured below circled in yellow). Is this connected to the positive contact in the front of the car? or is it a ground? And how do you reconnect it? The...
  16. Car Navigation, Audio & Electronics
    Hi, I have NAV on my F10. I got my Bluetooth paired for audio/phone on my iPhone and it works great. I needed to charge the phone, so I plugged in the USB cable. The car switched to the USB for data/audio and then disconnected the Audio from the Bluetooth connection. Is is possible to set...
  17. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    Hello, I am new Bimmer 520d owner. I have a “Battery charge very low” warning alert one minute after having stopped engine but did not eject the FOB key. (ie waiting for someone; with radio on). Also noted that clock, date, odometer reading is reset. Battery replaced by BMW official dealer...
  18. E63 / E64 6 Series (2004 - 2010)
    Battery is dead in my BMW 645Ci. Unfortunately, I have never jumped off a car or charged a battery. All I know is where the red + is under the hood. Don't know where to put the black clip thing. I am a female and maybe car maintenance isn't my thing. Please help?
  19. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    I have a 2007 530i with 20,000 miles on it. I purchased it in 2008 with 12,000 miles on it and have put only 8,000 miles on in the past 3 years. I have 2 keys that worked fine a year ago, but slowly, they seem to be losing their charge. I have to push the button over and over to get the...
  20. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    Question for the wise.... normally, when i I've accidently let something drain my battery down, i've just jumped my car, and made sure i drove for an hour or so, to get the battery "charged". I've heard people here on the forums say that doing that stresses the alternator, because it forces...
