    I have a 2002 BMW 330xi - 3 Series The car had like no problems what so ever other than bearings and at times the battery won't keep charged. But for the most part the battery would be fine.

    A couple days ago, I got in my 2007 335i and started it up. After running for a few minutes, everything started to go haywire. The warning lights on the instrument cluster would intermittently light up including the airbag, ABS, BRAKE, and seatbelt. Then they would go off. The car ran normally...

    1st time BMW replaced battery. 2nd time replaced alternator, this time they tell me they want to replace both battery and alternator. Each incident about 1 year apart. Car has only 30,000mi. There is obviously something else going on here. Does anyone out there have info? The battery warning...

    Hey guys. I've got a 2000 528i @145k miles. I've been away at college, so this is being recounted to me by my dad. They were driving on the highway and noticed some electrical problems were surfacing such as the radio not working, air conditioning acting weird, etc. They called me, i told...

    Please help!!!! :mad:I am locked out of my 2002 325xit (wagon). I have tried opening the door manually using the keys but the lock is not engaging.

    I've had quite a few issues lately getting my '02 525i to start. Initially, it would turn over repeatedly, just wouldn't start. At the time, the instrument panel was lighting up, all lights were coming on, etc. Several hours later, it was not cranking in the same way, but I noticed that...

    My 93 325i just started this week to not crank. The battery is completely drained so I changed the battery and the issue is still occurring! :mad: My friend who's a mechanic has disconnected my trunk light, interior lights, and my alarm thinking that they are staying on and draining my battery...

    This forum has been very helpful, and I am a new and recent convert to the BMW since inheriting a 1997 528i - which now won't start. Prior to today, it has been exhibiting weird electrical issues - airbag light stays on, rear driver's side window goes down by itself, brake lamps warning lights...
  12. 7 Series & 8 Series
    So here is what happened. A couple months ago, we started having problems with the battery. It constantly discharged, and I think that ruined the battery. Then none of the electricals worked. The battery went flat for about 3 months, and never been driven. Now we replaced it with a brand new...
