  1. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    I have a 520i 2002 e39. I had a cluster lying around and I wanted to test it with my car if it's fully functional. I disconnected my cluster and I forgot to disconnect my battery. then plugged in my other cluster, immediately the oil pressure, battery, ABS, and hand brake lamp were on when the...
  2. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    Hey guys i got a 08 328xi sulev and it intermittently misfires on cylinder 6. Sometimes on cold starts it does, sometimes it doesnt. If i dont let the car warm up for at least 10 minutes it begins to misfire while driving (even if i shift below 3k and accelerate slow). On super cold mornings...
  3. E30 (1982 - 1993)
    1991 325i E30 just came out of the shop a few months ago running like a champ. It has sat now for 4 or 5 months. Went out to crank and got no power but battery was really low. Charged it to over 13 volts and also ran jumpers just to see if it would light up. Still completely dead, no lights, no...
  4. 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...
  5. 7 Series - E65 / E66 (2002 - 2008)
    Hello all, I am a new member, with a new (to me) BMW, and a number of the previous owners issues (like many here). I purchased a 2004 ...... wait for it..... 745I N62B44A :yikes::yikes::yikes: as my first personal vehicle (ive shared for years, but never enjoyed my own). I know, from reading...
  6. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    2004 330ci 149,000 miles, auto transmission Changed battery installing Champion h7. Upon connecting the battery all 3 break lights lit up and stay on. Without the key in the ignition all power is active, meaning the, wipers, the windows, the ac etc will operate. The dash board Also stays...
  7. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    So I picked up an 07 328xi, car has been very reliable to me. Runs Drives and looks great. Now when you insert the key there is the buzzing of a relay inside of the fusebox under the passenger glovebox. The car sometimes will grind the starter during cranking as if you are starting an already...
  8. X5 E53 (1999 - 2006)
    Hello everyone merry Christmas :):thumbup: Today my car wasn't starting. There was no turn over. I had EWS issues in the past so I went to check if the door chime and key in ignition warning on the cluster board was lighting up when I opened the door and it wasn't. Then after some testing...
  9. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    If the immobilizer is active (armed), does the engine turn over (cranking but not starting) when you insert the key and try to start it? Or nothing would happen (as in no crank, just the dash lights)? Thanks
  10. X5 E70 (2007 - 2013)
    I know I've already posted on this but so far no joy so I thought I'd post a video - maybe prompt someone? https://youtu.be/vorkrnNch-I If anyone can shed some light on what is going on - and perhaps even more importantly how to fix it that would be great. As I said in the video the car...
  11. X5 E70 (2007 - 2013)
    The car is a 2007 3.0d X5 with 104,000 miles. The problem.... Up until yesterday inserting the key in its slot lit the dashboard and then a quick press of the start button and away you go. All of a sudden - nothing. Insert the key in the slot and nothing. While waiting for recovery yesterday...
  12. F10 / F11 (2011 - 2016)
    Hi All I purchased a BMW 5 series 520 D last December and since May the car is not recognising the fob. I need to manually open the car and place the fob next to the ignition column to start the car. I have had the car checked in two garages and no fault is being found. One mechanic thought it...

  14. X3 E83 (2004 - 2010)
    Gradually, my X3 became increasingly difficult to start until it failed to start altogether. An attempt at jumping the car by hooking cables directly up to the battery did not work. So I removed the battery and took it to an auto parts store, where a check determined the battery charge was...

  17. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    Hey everybody. So I got my car, a 2000 540i 6 Speed, about 2 months ago, and in that time I've been through 3 batteries. The first one was the one that came in the car from the previous owner. About 3 weeks into my ownership, I went to leave work. I unlocked the car using my fob and everything...
  18. X3 E83 (2004 - 2010)
    Hi - I'm a newly registered user here although I've been lurking for a while to find solutions to various questions. This forum has always been helpful. Today, I'm trying to figure out why my 2009 x3 (about 72,000 miles) simply will not start. All usual dashboard lights go on when I turn the...
  19. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    I have a 2003 525i, and the key is stuck in the ignition. I've searched as hard as I can, and none of the threads I've been able to find were able to help me. For reference I have the tiptronic transmission model. The computer reads out "KEY IN IGNITION LOCK" when I open the door. The dash...
