    118k miles. Something is preventing my battery from getting juice from the Alternator. The most Reputable & Costly local Repair shop has ran multiple tests on 4 different occasions & is baffled as to why it is draining. Is there a junction &/or connection between the ALT & Battery that needs...

    Experienced long cranking but no start. Checked fuses to find fuse #70 (30 amp behind glove box) melted and very damaged.

    About a week ago I went to start my 2007 335i and it had a surging idle, no throttle response and all of the error lights illuminated. I initially couldn't get communication with the DME or any of the other modules. I checked the ECU and engine bay fuse box and there was condensation in it and...

  8. X5 E53 (1999 - 2006)
    It all began at around 2am. Asleep in bed and the alarm starts going off and wakes me up. After confirming no one was trying to break in to the vehicle, I used the key fob to unlock the doors and silence the alarm. After pushing lock again, 15 seconds later, the alarm starts sounding again. So I...
  9. X3 E83 (2004 - 2010)
    SYMPTOMS A few weeks ago, the Airbag Light started to turn ON and stay ON sometimes only. I realized that it is not constant and it happens only when I start the engine and the start is a bit "heavy". (Case 1) When I turn the key to start the engine and it starts right away, the Airbag light...

    EDIT: Added new data @ bottom Hi All! Sorry it's long, but I wanted to give the details and there's a lot of them! HALP! My friend Rudy (long story) is sick. It started simple but now I'm in code hell. Due to COVID sheltering (high risk) my poor 320i was just sitting. I drove it every 2 weeks...

  15. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    I have a 2001 E46 325 Ci. I was having a heater issue, so went through the fuses to see if I had a burnt fuse. After checking the fuses, the car no longer turns over. Putting the key in position one and two is all normal with power and associated lights, but nothing when I turn to start. I...

    Hi, so I have an e46 323ci -00. All power windows work except the left "vent" window. I have tested the motor and it's fine and I have checked the switch and the fuses and everything is good.

    Hello, new member here! I am having problems with my 335 and was wondering if anyone has had the same experiences or has a general idea of what is going on. Last night after coming home from work, I wanted to leave the house again so I turn on my car and was unable to shift into gear...

    Hey everyone, my 2009 328i cooling fan won't turn on and is overheating. After replacing the water pump and thermostat at first, thinking it was that, it kept overheating, so I replaced the radiator fan, and I came to realize that the fan just never turns on. I checked my fuses and it is related...

    So I picked up an 07 328xi, car has been very reliable to me. Runs Drives and looks great.

The car sometimes will grind the starter during cranking as if you are starting an already...
