final stage resistor

  1. X5 E53 (1999 - 2006)
    Hi, I have a problem, this morning I started my car, turned heater to screen, air was blowing fine but the was a squealing noise, after driving for a while I noticed the fan had stopped. Has anyone had this problem? Is it the fan or could it be the Heater Blower Fan Motor FINAL STAGE Resistor...
  2. Tools and Miscellaneous
    I have a brand new OEM Behr Final Stage Resistor (FSR) in the original packaging as well as a brand new OEM Bosch cabin filter for e46's. I'm not sure if these items fit other Bimmers? These were purchased brand new from AutohausAZ, and I never got around to install them in my car before I sold...

    I bought a 1994 318is about a year back with this problem. Blower blows consistent at all speeds, but there is no heat. The climate control unit reads -37C at all times. I have replace the heater blower resister and the heater core. Both parts were not cheap and the climate control unit...

    Specific question! Whose BMW USA dealer sells the OEM Valeo FSU at the best price? I need an FSU shipped to me and my local dealers are charging $130, $159, and $183 for the Valeo FSU. I see I can buy it from the sponsors for $60 but I keep reading to get the dealer one. That is why I am asking.

    Hi Bimmerfest friends, My problem is that the blower motor doesn't pump more air if it is set to driver and passenger vents, whether it is AC or heat, (it just works/fan accelerates when speed setting is 1 and 2 = very low air speed, higher fan speed seems to be ignored by the blower motor)...

    I have a 2002 BMW X5 4.4 V8, I was having problems with the fan that blows heat and air into the car. I have already replaced the famous final stage resistor three times, but the problem persists. It works fine for a few days, then when the car stops it stays on and it drains the battery. Any...

    Did my FSU last night. Like most things with these cars, a lot of things have to be moved just to get what you want. Fairly simple, but tedious. This link helped a lot. http://www.m3forum.net/m3forum/showthread.php?t=119500
  12. 5 Series DIY
    Reference - Final Stage Unit - The Photo Library - All Useful & Useless Photos. Replacing the FSU I was one of the unlucky ones. It took me a long time to take it off, and even longer to put it back in. I just could not see what is going on, and how it should fit in, and what is the...
  13. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    I have a 2000 540i Touring - the battery goes flat after a few days standing. When completely powered down it's drawing ~120mA. I have read the many posts on FSUs with interest - I disconnected the FSU and it made no difference - If I pull fuse 76 (blower motor) current drain drops to 30mA...
  14. Do-It-Yourself H.Q.
    The air conditioning fan motor on my 2002 325i surges when on. I don't have any problems with it running after the car is off or not working at all, it just surges while on. I've reviewed the posts on this forum that deal with the final stage resistor replacement which appears to be the...
