  1. X3 E83 (2004 - 2010)
    Hi everyone, I've either hit jackpot or learned a very expensive lesson. I'm about to pick up this 2008 X3 E83 2.0 Diesel from the auction site and wanted a heads up from you guys about the possible repairs needed. The condition report also noted that the engine was 'noisy'. I've read a few...
  2. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    I drive a 13+ year old 320d. In 2017 it developed a problem of not starting immediately. When you press the start stop button to switch on the electronics there is a certain humming noise. When step on the accelerator to start it, it just cranks and it will only start after the DTC or DSC...
  3. E82 / E87 / E88 / F20 1 Series (2008 - 2014)
    So.... Last week I was driving on the motorway doing around 70 :rofl: when the DTC started kicking in and limiting power to the wheels.. (it was wet at the time) and I assumed that there was no problem and that I should slow down.. so I did and the problem went away however the car did the same...

    I've been doing some searching on this topic for some time now and haven't been able to come up with much of a concrete answer. Here's the deal, I have a 2008 E90 335i 6MT with the Sport Package (01/2008). From what I've been able to gather, cars built from 03/2008 and later came equipped with...
  6. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    I notice the other weekend, when I held down the DTC button it fully deactivated the system, and i was able to spin my tires and burn rubber for the first time (watching my tail whip was really fun, never did this in any of my bmw's until now very fun), when I tried to do that before, I was only...
  7. F30 / F31 / F32 / F33 / F34 / F36 (2012 - current)
    I just got a 328i it has no performance modifications, for now getting a LSD is not an option. I want to drift, i've tried different ways but I can't figured it out if drifting my car is better with the DTC on or off, when is off at low speeds the car just spins one wheel and with DTC on it...
  8. 7 Series - E65 / E66 (2002 - 2008)
    I'm looking for some information on an easy way to reprogram my power module so it supports 90AGM. I have a 2002 E65 and have been doing research and found this. http://www.bmwlogicseven.com/?p=3788 This article seams to apply to my vehicle, I replaced the battery with a 90ah and need to...
  9. X5 E70 (2007 - 2013)
    Guy’s a failure I would like to share with this forum, as this forum has been a great help for me in other matters. I own a preowned X5 48.i 2008 70.000 km. It had some problems when I bought it, as seen by me when I did the transfer. The fact that it had just 70.000 km and because it is in an...

  13. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    Keep getting random ABS, DTC, Start Assist lights. Only thing that recently changed was some 15mm wheel spacer in the rear. Lights come and go randomly. I have read a few posts about checking the speed sensors but wanted to know if anyone else had any similar issues with wheel spacers. Would...

    The dash light stays on constantly. It shows a triangle with an "!" inside it and an open circle with an arrow outside the triangle. I cleaned all wheel sensors and filled the master brake cylinder. Do I need to reset the light or is there another problem? Do I need to drive it to reset it? Do I...
  17. 7 Series - E65 / E66 (2002 - 2008)
    After playing with INPA I did something now I have no ability to turn on or off DSC & DTC. I get an error when starting caution drive control. Please help!
  18. 7 Series - E23 / E32 (1977 - 1994)
    :rofl: So I was playing (first timer) with INPA just looking around, clearing codes, and then it would not start, that’s how I found you guys. Got it started (with your help thank god for bimmerfest) now I have no traction control DSC, no DTC. The turn signals will not go off after a turn, and...
  19. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    Note: The SES lights fine with the key initially in the ignition so the bulb is good. I didn't think it possible to have thrown lean condition fault codes (not pending) and no SES light ... Even now, I wonder what is (really) going on ... but, for the record, here's my story ... I've been...
  20. 7 Series - E65 / E66 (2002 - 2008)
    I am sure many of you have experienced the SZL issue. With my car it started within the first 4 months since I bought it new. The wipers turn on automatically and do not turn off until the ignition is turned off. All sorts of errors start to popup: Airbag and belt tensioners functions are not...
