  1. X3 E83 (2004 - 2010)
    I replaced my battery recently and the AutoZone employee said it may affect my ECU. Since the battery swap, my dash lights "BRAKE" and "4x4" have both been on - NO "ABS" light on, though. When I start the vehicle in the cold and try to make a hard slow turn (u-turn) I get a weird lurching...
