cruise control

  1. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    I just had both of my rear wheel bearings replaced at a local shop, not a BMW dealer. Now the ABS, BRAKE, and one more warning light are on. I can't use cruise control. I believe that a sensor was damaged or not hooked back up properly? Does anyone have any ideas for an easy fix for this? Is...

    I was on a road trip today. A couple times when I hit the button to resume speed in cruise control, I got a beep and a yellow light I hadn't ever seen before and didn't know what it was. It 'sort of' looked like a gear. I did it again and got a message on the console that I have a...

    Took my 2008 328i with 83k miles to the dealership to fix the instrument cluster after i replaced the battery and i told them to fix anything else that was wrong with it. They replaced the brake wear sensors (as i had already replaced the brake pads myself) and said there was nothing else wrong...

    Since February 2013 (2 months after my warranty expired) my 2008 BMW 325i began displaying an annoying intermittent "Electrical System Malfunction" message on my iDrive accompanied by deactivation of the cruise control. Additionally, the AM dial of the radio developed an occasional escalating...

    Hi, recently purchased a decent '97 328si, immaculately kept, no mechanical problems that I can see, but the cruise control doesn't seem to work. I don't see a sensor near the brake pedal arm, which was my first idea, so wondering if there is a simple fix. Fuse is good. Dave...

    While driving on the freeway today my turn signals, cruise control, high beam flashers, and wipers stopped responding to the actions of the control stalks. I can force the blinkers to go by pushing the hazard button, I can get the wipers to cycle once by pushing the auto button (on the wiper...

    I have a 2001 X5 that I purchased used last year. I was so in love with it that I overlooked the obvious issue of the horn, cruise control and steering wheel radio controls not working. Is there an easy fix to this? I thought there might be an electrical switch in the steering wheel that I could...

    Hi All, Just got this new problem that's started with my BMW E39 520i Auto. Below 60mph the cruise control works fine. Now, if I go above 60, it switches off by itself. That's if I accelerate with the peddle or use the accelerate button on steering. Once it's cut off it won't switch on...

    Upon a bit of research i have found 4 recalls on my 1994 525i that I am sure were not corrected by the previous owners. Does anyone know the time line for getting these recalls taken care of? Can I still have them fixed by a dealership at no cost to me? Any information is greatly appreciated...

    In my 2012 X5, the cruise control on the speedometer sometimes indicates a different set than the digital readout in the center of the dash or the actual speed. For example, cruise is set on 75, and the speedometer reads 75, but the cruise indicator on the speedometer reads 65. Ever seen this...

    Hey guys, need your opinions on this problem. I posted this to the redardetector.net board, however need BMW-specific opinion, plus it takes a while for posts to get approved there, so here it is: I have 2009 BMW E61 (535xiT) with Active Cruise Control (stop and go). I finally found time...

    I had my car (bmw 760li 2003) in the shop for replacement of cylinder 4 on the engine. I just got it back and now the cruise control went out. Also Now I see the Park, ABS, Brakes error on the dash. is it an easy fix as a reset? or should I be worried here? I also changed the back tires (which...
  13. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    Hi guys, I have an E60 2006 525i and I love it. But over the past few weeks the cars electronics play up big time. Basically what happens is that when I start the car, everything is all fine. After I have ridden the car a certain distance (very variable, but usually within 15 mins) I suddenly...

    Found out recently that my cruise control isn't working. Narrowed it down to the Cruse Control Module under the hood. I've searched RealOEM.com to no avail for the part. Anybody have any ideas on pricing or availability? Anybody had issues with the module in the past? '05 X3 6-Spd Manual

    My husband is on the side of the road right now with my 1990 535i. He said he tried using cruise control a couple times (which I've never done) and suddenly it acted like it ran out of gas. No code came on. Trying to figure out quickly if he can somehow reset the computer by disconnecting a...

    Hello, Since I am a newbie to motors, it should come as no surprise to you that when I was left in the middle of a crossroad here in London with an accelerator (gas) pedal stuck, I had to wait and call RAC recovery. They noticed that it was not the pedal stuck, but the lever, under the boot...

    Ok so i put a air intake on my 2001 330ci and to make it fit i had to completely take apart the section where the senor clips in (guessing its a MAF Sensor?). Anyways now i have no cruise control and was wondering how i could fix this. I do still have the piece the sensor clipped into if that...
