rain

  1. E36 (1991 - 1999)
    I have a 1994 325i (E36) 4-door. When it rains, I get a LOT of water into the passenger's side floor. Enough to form a small puddle. Happens even if the car is parked (motionless). No obvious issue seen around the door perimeter with the seal. Has happened repeatedly, with every rain. I...
  2. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    2011 xi Touring wagon with Navigation package. Yes it happened to me although possibly with a happy ending. And a DIY fix that might help others. Got in my car today and realized the pano sun roof was open all night! Could have killed myself. Yes big rain too... very not good Daddy. There was...

  4. 7 Series - E65 / E66 (2002 - 2008)
    Just wanted to post this in case it might help someone... My rain sensor wasn't working right. It seemed to work at the same rate no matter how much rain was falling. When I tried to initialize it using INSTA it said that there is a hardware fault and I should replace the sensor. Luckily I had...
  5. E82 / E87 / E88 / F20 1 Series (2008 - 2014)
    I stumbled in here after googling the issues and found a few threads on the topic, so please pardon the new thread on an old topic, and the wall of words. Same subject but couple of extra question thrown in. Thanks in advance for any help. Windows and sunroof opened on its own. (Insert a LOT of...
  6. E89 Z4 (2009 - current)
    Shame on me. My 2005 Z4 2.5, 70K miles got rained into. It was short and heavy, perhaps 5 minutes. I quickly wiped the interior. Started with no issue, except: the airbag warning light came on. Clearly caused by the rainin. Do I really have an airbag issue ? How to diagnose and/or fix ? Thanks...
  7. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    :cry: Hello. I had to replace dome light (with FZD module I guess) in my E91. Everything went well, but rain and light sensor is dead, I replaced it with new one and it's still not working. I searched the web and I found out I need to turn in on in INPA, but on 3 different versions on 2...
  8. 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...
  9. BMW Coding and Programming
    Hey, I would like to code the the rain sensor of my F30 and make it a little bit more sensitive. The problem is that I didn't find any information on how to do this and I'm not sure if it is possible at all. A member of a German BMW forum told me that it is possible, but he is a commercial...
  10. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    Hey, So I have a 02' BMW 330xi and I left the windows open during a pretty heavy rain storm. The next day I started the car n something seemed wrong. The headlights are always on and I cannot turn them off. The light control switches stopped working on me. The fog lights will not turn on...
  11. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    I woke up this morning to discover a puddle in the rear passenger footwell. We had heavy rain the past 3 days, and I know it had to have leaked in from somewhere. The water goes from the back of the cabin to the front on the passenger side with the rear being soaked and the front being only...
  12. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    Hey Everyone, I'm looking for some feedback on my Windshield Wipers that Randomly quit working! On several occasions now my windshield wipers have randomly stopped working in the middle of driving in the rain. After pulling over and turning off my car for about 10 minutes and restarting it...
  13. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    I got caught in a freak rainstorm today with the roof down, by the time I got the roof up there was a lot of rain that had entered the car. On the drive home the horn started going off on it's own, I removed the fuse for it a onto used home. Once at home all the lights stayed on after stopping...

    A prototype headlight system can detect raindrops or snow streaks and "dis-illuminate" them, thereby increasing visibility on the road ahead. The system uses a digital projector to illuminate raindrops for several milliseconds while a camera mounted on the side of the projector captures each...
  15. X3 E83 (2004 - 2010)
    I've installed these on other vehicles I've owned and am considering a set for my X3. Anybody have personal experience with the OEM (PN: 82 11 0 304 994) from BMW or would I be just as happy using a third-party version. AND any recommendations? I saw a set on a Honda CRV recently that were...
  16. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    Hello, Today it rained quite heavily, and I sort of flooded my car by accident. I did not know that if you hold the "open door" button, it would open ALL windows, and sunroof!!! So there was a couple of inches of water on the floor. I immediately vacuumed as much water as possible, and after...
