  3. 7 Series - E38 (1995 - 2001)
    Some of the most bizarre electrical issues can be put down to a failing ignition switch or a light control module, but in my experience these can be triggered by deliberately operating features. I'm seeing something I can't think what to do with... The car starts normally (750 iL, so presumably...

    Hello, A little help needed. I searched for an appropriate thread but didn't find. Anyway, last weekend, about 100km from home, my battery light came on. I used the OBD check test No. 9 to get a live voltage readout and it was showing around 11.5V. Turned everything off and drove home and just...

    I am working on a '88 325is that has been stored about 5 years (covered, thankfully). I'm not getting any fuel to the fuel block. The relays appear good, and the fuse is good. Remaining electrical seems OK (getting spark, guages work, etc.) I have continuity from the fuse to the pump, but only...

  8. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    2 days ago my key stopped working and i read a bit about reprogramming it which i tried to no avail. So i read about checking the fuses so i started doing that stupidly with my engine running(i heard this was bad). One that i pulled out made the alarm(i think) beep loud and continuous until i...
  9. 7 Series - E65 / E66 (2002 - 2008)
    So, I just recently had some work done to my 2008 750Li. Since then there has been some electric issues. The shop "reset" some things and they stopped. Then only thing still happening is the drivers' seat, "waist hugger" control will adjust by itself. It will repeatedly just move back and forth...

    A few weeks ago the wires to my oil level sensor burnt up, I replaced the wires and the oil level sensor. However, when I try to start the car it does not turn over and the dash reads oil level sensor. I have tried reading and resetting the fault codes via the stomp test. After the stomp test I...
  13. 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...
