  1. X6 E71 / E72 (2008 - 2014)
    I recently replaced my battery from my E71 X6M with a new one because it was 9 years old & rapidly discharging when the car was locked, but the other day I went to start up my car with the new battery and on the iDrive it said battery discharge & I checked the Volts & it had dropped below 12...
  2. F30 / F31 / F32 / F33 / F34 / F36 (2012 - current)
    Hi BMW enthusiast :-). I am writing because I need some expert advise before sending my car to the shop for diagnosis, and I would really appreciate your input on this matter. I am driving a wonderful F30 320d from 2012, equipped with the performance package. The car is in all but one area...
  3. X5 E70 (2007 - 2013)
    I just posted about throttle sensor issues and am also noticing that something is draining the battery in my 2008 E70 4.8L. I just replaced the alternator and battery for the second time within one year. Has anyone else encountered this? Any theories on what could cause it? I read that...

I put the radio into place using a dash kit...

  7. E36 (1991 - 1999)
    I have a 1997 328i that just had a bunch of work done on it, but I am experiencing a mysterious power drain. The car will stay charged for about 7 hours or so, but will die overnight. I've had the battery tested numerous times and it's fine. I've checked all the lights and they are all in the...
