    I hope someone can help. I purchased this car just a few months ago, and completely gutted the headlight assemblies because the lights didn't work, and most of the wires had lost their covering, which I read is a common problem. I cleaned them off, coated them with liquid tape and checked the...

    my 2003 530i has an issue where the high beams and turn signals need to be on to be off, for example, when you push your blinker switch back that's how you turn on your high beams. but for me that's how i turn them off, to turn them on i'd have it how you would normally have them off. this is...

    I recently acquired a 1999 528i wagon. It was owned in California since initial purchase and I brought it to Wyoming. I have had to make some minor repairs here and there but have enjoyed driving the vehicle. It even behaves well in the harsh winters here. Last night when I started the car...

    Hey all, I just upgraded my e39 from an LCM3 to a LCM4. Successfully, set ODO, and VIN and recoded with cars ZCF. Then I started poking at the PWM values in PA Soft 1.4 LCM section.

    Wanted to share my recent work regarding how to address a failing Light Kontrol/Control Module. Such a thread undoubtedly exists elsewhere, but here's my take. My symptoms were a headlight (driver side) that wasn't quite as bright white as the opposite. Also, when I turned on the high-beams, it...

I want to do it the right way, means that the signal goes through the LCM and DDE because the PDC should turn on when i switch to reverse.. sure i can wire ignition 12v to the reverse...

    Hello, I got NCS Expert/Dummy up and running and have activated the daytime running lights. However, as I remember from previous cars, when I do not adjust the light switch I would like the instrument/interior lights to remain OFF. I can't for the heart of me find the right setting.

    Hi Everyone, Recently I had a complete cooling system failure of the main and auxiliary fans- So the car overheated to redline. I took it in for repair and while driving home (during the day) I noticed a driver-side low beam failure indicator. I thought that perhaps during the process of...
