    So, I found an old burned down 🔥2008 BMW 528xi to restore. However, I am stuck on getting it to the diagnostics mode. The dash is showing the dreaded "Red Car-Lift of Death". ☠️ Pressing the engine start stop button 3 times doesn't have any effect. I've checked the fuses several times all good...

    My 320d has the start/stop function. Hadn't worked in a while as battery was on way out. Now, with new battery, it still doesn't kick in. Battery is fully charged... Any thoughts?

    I recently purchased a 2012 528i. Was working fine then electrical things started failing. Charger ports, bluetooth, aux input, stop-start, etc. Next morning I got an excessive battery depletion warning. It went away before I could really remember what it said. I took it to the dealership where...

    So I bought a 2006 525xi about a year ago, throughout this year many problems have occurred, but I have managed to fix it all. Except for the latest little but big problem. About 4 months ago my car stopped turning on, took it to the dealership, and they said that it was the starter. I replaced...

    Hello folks, I am wondering if anyone here has got themselves a Braille lithium Ion or any other lightweight battery. They are expensive as heck, but seem to have a lengthy list of pros. Any thoughts?

    Question about the vent tube: Does it just need to be plugged in, or is there a knockout that has to be tapped out before you plug it in?
  11. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    Ok, put a new battery in, cranks like a mother but no start. Fuel gauge reads half tank and no issues with starting before. The alarm WAS sounding when I put the new battery in so I'm thinking there is a vehicle theft system that deactivated the fuel pump? I have about 7 hours to fix this...
