  2. X3 F25 (2011 - 2017)
    I'm looking into trading in my Ford C-Max for a 2nd gen X3, specifically a 2013 one at the local BMW dealership. But I need a constant power 12v power jack for a time lapse camera I leave running most of the time as a security camera (only 5 watts). Does the X3 have any jacks like that? I...

    I will try to take a piocture but I just want to ask if you have interesting solutions to a very minor problem. My cig lighter usb adapter stopped working and when I pulled it out and fumbled about the bottom I saw sparks and burnt my fingter sticking it in the empty hole. What?. Looking...

    My center console cigarette lighter and the USB that are in the same area do not work. The Aux does work though. The USB seems odd, nothing seems to fit it well and when I plug something in and go to the dashboard and put it on USB, it just says insert. The cigarette lighter just doesn't do...
  5. X1 E84 (2011 - 2015)
    I just got a 2013 X1 xDrive 28i. Everything about it works phenomenally well, except for the power outlets. I pulled out the old fuse (slot #8, 20A), and it was blown, but after putting a new one in, still no power to the outlets. Are there any other fuses I need to be looking at? Possibly a...

    Hey everyone, I'm new to this forum. I have my sisters 2005 X3 for the moment to fix some issues she has been having. Her cigarette lighter keeps shorting the fuse. There is 0 ohms between the to wires that feed it, so it would seem I have a short somewhere in the wiring. I had the console...

    Hello everyone, For starters, this is my first post. Love my 1998 BMW 540i and still cannot believe i found it where i did last month. This morning i drove to work and when i parked it, i accidentally left my phone charger plugged into the cigarette lighter. I had a 7 hour shift and when i got...

    After reading a few posts to figure out how to change the fuse for the cigarette adapter, I decided to consolidate this knowledge into one thread for ease of use. I did this on a 2007 335i, so your fuse diagram may be different. The fuse box is located in the glove compartment behind a panel...

    Hello everyone, I have a yr2000 /e39/ 528i Live in Cleveland, OH My problem is when the outside ambient temp is below 40-50F the car has a dip idle every 5 seconds, plus or minus a few seconds, when the engine temp is below 1/4. Once the above 1/4 no problems. I have replaced the MAF, new...
  10. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    I have a 2008 535i Both the USB and the input jack seem to stop working at the same time. The unit is located in the center console arm rest. I know it's only one unit but do you think its' the unit that needs to be replaced or a fuse? Also to note the cigarette lighter in my astray is not...

    We've all evolved - but there is still much to learn. What do you currently use for a cigarette lighter power adapter in your Bimmer? Why? (i.e., what can the rest of us learn from your setup?) In the olden days, most of us use separate proprietary power adapters (perhaps with a y-splitter)...

    I recently bought a 2005 325CI and the shift knob spins in circles. Weird because the button can be pressed and works from any position. I also noticed that the cigarette lighter does not work. I don't smoke but cannot charge my cell phone while driving. I had to replace my evaporator and I...

    Hi Guys, I've been on board for over a month now after I got my first bimmer, and thanks to the great resources we already have in the forum this is my first post to ask a question which i cannot find an answer through `search'. Does anyone know what the rated amperage the cigarette lighter...
  14. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    Hello, The rear left cigarette lighter port has a light out, there is two of them located in center section of the car, intended for the rear passengers. They are side by side, the light ring around the right one comes on just fine, the left one does not. My dealer is trying to tell me that it...
  15. X5 E53 (1999 - 2006)
    The cigarette lighter in my '03 X5 quits working--I think it happened because the metal tip of the cigarette charger for my Garmin GPS popped out and dropped into the lighter socket, hence shorting the fuse for the lighter. Apparently this happens a lot--it also happened to my 325i (though not...
