    Hey everyone, I was wondering if you guys can help me. I have a 2012 BMW X1 28i with the N20 4-cylinder turbo engine, and the other day I was driving and started to hear some noises from the engine. It started shaking, the engine light came on and then it came to a stop on the highway. It has...

    I have a 2004 BMW 525i e60. The car cranks over fine. Fuel pump wont turn on so i dont think the dme comes on. What do you think is the issue? is there a way to bypass the dme and fuel pump to see if it starts.
  4. F10 / F11 (2011 - 2016)
    I have a 2011 550i N63. I limped home from work yesterday after cylinder 1 went dead on me. I assume it is a bad injector. Today I wanted to swap out cylinder 1 and 2 ignition coils to be sure its not a dead coil. While looking at the exposed ignition coil connector wires, there was a spark from...

    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...

    I pulled my idler pulley and replaced it with a new one and changed my belts, ran the engine with out my fan clutch on for a second to make sure the belts tracked right and all seemed good. I put my fan clutch back on and now it won't turn over..... no idea what's going on.

    My 2007 328i sedan has just over 100k miles on it. Recently, I went to go get an oil change at the dealer. Everything was running absolutely fine when I brought it in. After picking it up, I made two stops before returning home where I parked my car and turned my wheels enough to measure the...
  9. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    Hello I have a 2007 bmw 328i it was working and then the next day it wouldn't turn on. I think it's the battery but I'm not sure. When I turn it on I hear a click and the cluster lights go dim. Does it seem like the battery? I'm going to take it to get charged tomorrow so hopefully that is it...
  10. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    I've had this problem (no start/no crank and odd electrical problems), on both my 7's and thought OK, I will change the IVM. I looked for it under the cabin filter and its not there. I have looked everywhere on this car and can not find it. Does it not have any IVM? :dunno: If not any...

    Bought a bit of a project e36 323i sedan 1996. So recently there has been a few cooling issues and I've replaced the radiator all hoses and coolant but the fuel pump isn't priming anymore. Used to solve this by hitting the fuel tank with a rubber mallet and it would start. Could my fuel pump...
  12. X5 E53 (1999 - 2006)
    Right so after a week of trying to get my X5 to fire up its still dead on my drive, after being hooked up to every machine, autologic, snap on, launch X-431,bosch and a delphi I've finally decided that it's either a issue with the key or with the EWS all of the machines would or couldn't re sync...
  13. E30 (1982 - 1993)
    My E30 has a blown head gasket and it would start despite that. I parked it while I saved money to replace the gasket. I just charged the battery and tried to start the engine to move it into the garage and got no cranking, The clock lights up the radio plays. I get no dash power or headlights...
  14. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    Hey all, This is my first post on here but I've been reading a lot of other threads trying to solve my problem . First thing that happened is that I got a check engine light followed by loss of power, rough idle, and bad gas mileage. Read the code and it was a misfire on number 6. So I had new...

    Hey everyone, So I recently bought my 2003 325i manual transmission, drove perfectly fine for the about 2 weeks or so that I've had it and then the other day I when to drive it, it did not start. I am sure that it is not the battery. I've checked it, took it to auto zone etc. When I try to...
  16. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    Hey guys, so as the title reads, my car is having problems starting. The only way I can get it to start is with a rolling start and popping the clutch; using cables hasn't worked and only makes the 'click click click' sound once I turn to the third ignition position. As the car stands, once I...

  18. 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...

    So I have a 1994 540i with 179k miles on it. (Long story short :eeps:) One day I was driving it, smooth as ever, then I turn a corner, it flashes TRANS PROGRAM twice, then it dies.
