    Hey all, Sorry if repost but my 2006 E90 recently started having this problem where the wipers would swipe 4 times before parking itself in an incorrect position (sometimes up, halfway, or almost down). Upon stopping, the wiper switches won’t work for maybe a few minutes whether the car is on...

    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...

    Hello, First, I wish everyone well during these trying times. Mostly because I am human but also to explain why the car took a beating. COVID was rough and due to circumstances I had to drive passengers (those cars you call with the app on your phone) in my car to make ends meet. The...

    Help... Please. 2011 Auto 2.0 X1 engine issue (intermittent) My best effort to explain the problem, here it goes. At low speeds or pulling off from a junction, sometimes, I accelerate and nothing happens bar a slow crawl - I've figured out two ways to keep going: 1- floor it and after a few...
  5. X5 E70 (2007 - 2013)
    I have a weird issue with my car and cannot troubleshoot it. over a month ago, car had a very gentle fender bender contact with a van. rear bumper didn't damage at all. Tho the impact left a weird legacy. On the same day, I scanned it, and found PDC is not responding. Cleared the code, and it...

The wife's 2000 528i with 125k on it decided while driving it today that the brakes work and then nothing!!!!!! hello emergency brake and neutral driving. Never had an issue with brakes on a BMW...
  7. E36 (1991 - 1999)
    Hey guys first post here after selfishly abusing your amazing knowledge for years. My 1997 328i with 260,000 miles would not be on the road today if it weren't for all of the help from all of you. I really appreciate your problems :) So into my issue. I started having an intermittent blower...
  8. E36/7 Z3 (1996-2002)
    Ok...I've been searching the boards and have seen similar problems, but not quite mine. I am the original owner of my atlantic blue 01 2.5 (130,000 miles). Just recently the power top has been intermittently refusing to operate. When it does operate properly, it does so as it always has...

    X3 Whine, Whistle, Bucking at Idle, Intermittent :yikes: I have a high pitched whine or whistling coming from my 2012 X3 28i. The vehicle starts to buck or shake until the engine is restarted. Take a look at this video and let me know if anyone has any suggestions on a fix? Thanks...
  10. E85 / E86 Z4 (2003-2008)
    Hi everyone! I seem to have an intermittent problem that comes and goes and relates to my powertrain. Usually during damp weather or after a motorway journey doing a constant 70mph (this may be in my head), i get hesitation during acceleration with partial throttle in any gear and any rpm but...
  11. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    I am brand new to the forum and brand new to BMWs. I've had great luck in the past on Jeep forums & you folks seem to be maybe even more dedicated. So, we bout a very used 323i yesterday. It drove great during the test drive & we bought it at KBB value. We drove it home - about 25 minutes -...
  12. X5 E53 (1999 - 2006)
    Hello fellow gremlin hunters, lol. I have a 2001 x5 4.4, no rear wiper or headlight wipers. I got caught in a bad rain storm the other day and my wipers would not work on low or high. They worked intermittent only and nothing changed when I moved the control lever forward or rearward. I'm...
  13. 7 Series - E65 / E66 (2002 - 2008)
    Hi i have 2006 BMW 750li with 72K miles. lately I have been having problem with repeated appearance of trnasmission fault warning, it says " transmission fault. possible reduced acceleration. have checked by nearest BMW Ctr." i have aver noticed that it happens near toll booths in other...
  14. E36 M3 (1995-1999)
    Hey guys and gals, so here is my problem. My 98 M3 has developed some lifter tick. It appeared to get low on oil; still not sure how. I changed the oil to T6 and hoped the tick would go away. I have watched the oil level like a hawk, and it is not dropping. Here is the problem, sometimes it...
  15. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    Hey guys, I have searched around for the answer to this issue but I have not been able to fully find the answer that I am looking for. Basically the problem that I am having is that the car has a headlight issue. The drivers side headlight is completely out now. The problem was intermittent at...
  16. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    Hi, Hopefully someone can help me solve this without shotgunning parts. The car cranks but won't start intermittently. Runs fine for weeks then all of sudden it won't start. I leave it alone for a 3 - 4 hours then it starts right up and works fine for weeks again. It seems like its not getting...
  17. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    I think I finally tracked down my intermittent right low beam light problem to a faulty connector. When I tap on the connector itself, the light will go on/off. Tapping on the thick wire / controller unit did not make the light go out. SO I used some electronics cleaner spray and also gently...
  18. E36 (1991 - 1999)
    I have a 94 325is (build date 09/93) with m50tu 5 speed. A couple months ago i started having a completely random problem, after coming off the freeway and pulling up to my second stop light and sitting for roughly 20 seconds i went to do a normal take off and i had no response from the engine...
  19. X5 E53 (1999 - 2006)
    I am working on my daughter’s 2003 X5 E53 that has a blower that no longer works at all. It was intermittent for several months but now does not. A couple months ago I have replaced the FSU with a new one that I bought at the local BMW dealer. It did not help at all; that the blower was still...
  20. E30 (1982 - 1993)
    1987 325i manual *WBAAD1300H88315466* Pseudo mechanic suspects vacuum leak, feels a lot more like a mechanical (hardware) problem as the car lurches and a distinct violent slamming back and forth happens, it does remind me of trailing arm bushing failure in my Volvo 240 wagon. like...
