    I am not sure if this is a broad issue or not, but wanted to ask. My 320xi (2014) and only a year old and the entire transmission computer board had to be replaced. I was stopped at a light and when the light turned I got maybe 5 feet before the car stalled, put itself in park and shut off. I...

  12. X3 E83 (2004 - 2010)
    My X3 has started doing strange things. First, the battery would drain and the car wouldn't start. After replacing the battery, the panel control lights stated to come on. Which caused things to stop working, i.e Navigation system, radio, wipers, cruse control, horn and passenger side-view...
  13. E46 (1999 - 2006)

  15. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    I was driving last night with the a/c on. I went over a series of hard bumps at a high speed, braking hard at the same time. I lost all climate control. Nothing will power on, including my rear window defrost. I disconnected the neg cable, hoping for maybe some kind of reset to no avail. Any...

    We were driving our 2001 740i and the electrical cut out completely. Car died and there was no sign of life, no guages, no lights nothing. We trie to turn the key off and on a few times and there was absolutely no reaction. After about 30 minutes the car started right up again like there was no...
  17. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    I posted a thread before about some electrical issues with my 1999 528i. The car's brake lights will stay on, the speakers aren't coming on, and the accessories aren't turning on when the key is in the acc position. I've been told to replace the battery and a mention of possibly an ignition...

    This has been the most stress full month ever with any of my cars. First I had a high pressure fuel line crack and cause a fire (small burned 3 wires and plastic under wipers).

  19. X3 F25 (2011 - 2017)
    I just purchased a 2011 X3 with less then 17,000 miles. The thing is beautiful and with the dynamic sport package it drives like a dream. I took her out on a 500 mile round trip for work and found some gremlins in my electrical system. While driving at freeway speeds I received a notice that...
