    2004 330ci 149,000 miles, auto transmission Changed battery installing Champion h7. Upon connecting the battery all 3 break lights lit up and stay on. Without the key in the ignition all power is active, meaning the, wipers, the windows, the ac etc will operate. The dash board Also stays...
  2. X5 E70 (2007 - 2013)
    The car is a 2007 3.0d X5 with 104,000 miles. The problem.... Up until yesterday inserting the key in its slot lit the dashboard and then a quick press of the start button and away you go. All of a sudden - nothing. Insert the key in the slot and nothing. While waiting for recovery yesterday...

    I had static in my speakers that sounded like a short, so I pulled the aftermarket stereo. Sure enough the person who installed the stereo did nothing more than twist the wires together and cover with electrical tape. Also I found that one of the wires was loose and lodged in the mechanism for...

    Thanks ahead for any help. I own a 2001 330CI. My issue is that my turn signal indicator stays on even after my turn signals are off. The closest thing I have found to a solution is that the K-Bus is the issue but not sure. Also to note if I turn my light on and then off it stops flashing.

    i know this topic has been brought up a million times and maybe someone can direct me to the appropriate thread. i had an indy mechanic change my pads/sensors and was unable to clear the dash warning. i was told something is wrong with my computer which i don't believe , so i decided to fix...

    Mentioned that my dash light doesn't go off when they key is out. Also seat heating buttons and gearbox display (automatic, near gear shifter) stay working too. OBC display is on too (shows black screen and grey ribbon with time and date on it). Anyone have ideas what cause such behaviour...
  7. E36/7 Z3 (1996-2002)
    Looking at a 97z3 that I am interested in buying. None of the gauges or dash lights work. Headlights and directionals do. Any ideas?

    Hiyall! I***8217;m finally stumped with my electrics. I had a friend help me through it and he***8217;s nowhere closer, either. Please send questions if you think you can help. 1987 325i Convertible e30 (August) We can***8217;t seem to find any obvious damage, except to the radio harness...

    Aloha, Just started my car, rear light light came on, changed bulb, and went to start my car again to drive home and no dice. When I turn the ignition on, only the ANTI light and battery light illuminate. All accessories work just like normal, radio, power windows, headlights, etc. Maybe bad...

    I HOPE THIS IS THE RIGHT FORUM!! I have a 2002 330ci with a little over 98K miles. 3 weeks ago a truck in front of me ran over a traffic cone and the bottom half ended up under the drivers side front end. I didn't drag it for long as I immediately pulled over BUT there is damage to the...
  11. E85 / E86 Z4 (2003-2008)
    Hi, these three lights are on my dash and they stay on all the time whether I'm moving or not. Symptoms are: No Dynamic Stability Control (if go into a skid, I get no help from the computer to straighten me out...just like the old days!). TPMS doesn't work (No warning if I get a flat tire)...

    Before reading, I'm an Audi guy and I don't know very much about BMW's even though I own one. Noob status. Where to start.. One day while driving my car I stopped at a restaurant. Shut car off, went inside for about 30 minutes and came back out. Started it and it was acting crazy. RPMs jumping...

    Hi, I have just has a problem with my dashboard lights on my BMW e34 520i, they flicker and then go off and then come back on again, this is the whole of the dashboard panel including the clock. I wanted to find out if this is an easy fix, thanks.:)

    OK - this sounds crazy, driving down interstate, my wife pulls down the visor - when she opens the sliding door to see the mirror, ABS, TRAN and Airbag lights come on, radio goes off. Pull over and turn turn ignition off, then back on, most lights go off, radio comes back on. While parked, i...

    This is my first post to any BMW site. I just joined the world of BMW owners 2 months ago and I feel like I am now a member of an elite community. My car is a 1998 528i that was purchased at an auction 2 owners ago. The last owner only had the car for about a month before selling it to me and...
  16. X3 E83 (2004 - 2010)
    2008 X3 Earlier today the following lights came on. Brake: RED Air Bag: RED ABS: Yellow 4WD: Yellow All came on as I backed and turned from a parking space. I pulled back into the spot and restarted the engine, turned the radio off and backed out again. The lights were off until I started...

    Hopped in my 2003 325i AT the other night and ... no IP lights. A closer looks revealed ALL gauges are also inop. I have two lights in the lower right that come on during bulb check - can't recall which they are. Checked all three fuses, all good. Battery was replaced about 3 months ago...

    1997 528i, Car is turned off, Key is out. Radio and Dash lights stay on permanently. Any idea why? Previously mentioned a possible General Module issue but dont think this is the case as no one else has seemed to have had the same problem with the radio not being able to turn off. Any Help would...

    The oil light, battery light, and seat belt light all came on this morning when I started my car. I drove it about 2 miles and the lights were still on. Any one else have this problem or know what it means? Its a '99 E46 328i.
  20. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    A week ago I upgraded my 2000 328i from the old halogens to xenons with angel eyes; picked up the whole package from Umnitza. Installation was easy and the headlights work great, but ever since the install my dash lights and gauges momentarily flicker, turn off and then turn back on whenever I...
