    I started with a no start no crank 6 months ago so I had it towed to my shop medium mech ability. I had a high coolant temp on the instrument panel but the car was cold so I replaced all 3 sensors on coolant system. Still no start no crank but had all power to dash.

  6. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    Hi everyone! I recently ran into some complications with my car. I left a bottle of windshield wiper fluid in my trunk and unfortunately the seal broke and all the fluid leaked into the PDC and other control units of the car. I finally got my car back a few days ago, and now my AUX and USB port...

On the drive home the horn started going off on it's own, I removed the fuse for it a onto used home. Once at home all the lights stayed on after stopping...
  10. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    Last Saturday my 2007 525i began sounding and flashing the trunk alarm system every time the car starts to move from a stop. It happens in both reverse and drive. The problem does not occur unless I come to a complete stop, but doing a California stop at signals and signs does not seem like a...
  11. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    Hello all, I have a 2003 325i. I've had it for about 2 years now. Shortly after I bought it I installed a kenwood radio so I could play music from my iphone. It all worked fine until about 2 weeks ago when the radio started failing. It would first cut off the sound for a second then progressed...

  15. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    Has anyone experienced electrical problems associated with excessive heat? We had temperatures over 100 degrees outside and my radio just started popping/going out and the convertible top would not operate. Is this a common problem? Is there a fix?
  16. E28 (1982 - 1988)
    Hi, I didn't drive my car for two days and, I'm still not sure why, the battery was totally drained. I jumped it, drove it around and its totally fine now except that none of the power windows are working! I already tried changing the fuse and the relay button by my right knee. There doesn't...

    Hi! I have had my car for for about 8 years (since I was sixteen!), driven it cross-country twice and it has always been wonderfully reliant, and wonderfully good looking. In the past year however, it has had issues starting with ever-increasing frequency. Basically, when I turn the...
  19. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    My 06 325CI E46 will not start. That's because there is no fuel pressure which I verified. I checked the fuse it's good. I checked the fuel pump relay and it is good. I also swaped it out for the horn relay and everything is the same. I have 12 volts going to the relay. When I check at the fuel...
