  1. Classic Bimmers
    Hello, New to me E34 1995 525i in beautiful condition. I am sorting through the shortfalls and the first item is the blower is inoperative at all settings. Not reading ahead I started the diagnosis with the basics and not looking for the blower motor or resistor issues I've become aware of...
  2. E30 (1982 - 1993)
    1991 325i E30 just came out of the shop a few months ago running like a champ. It has sat now for 4 or 5 months. Went out to crank and got no power but battery was really low. Charged it to over 13 volts and also ran jumpers just to see if it would light up. Still completely dead, no lights, no...
  3. E36 (1991 - 1999)
    Hello everyone, i have a problem with my e36 that cranks but can't start. I figured it would be a fuel-related thing but now I have changed the fuse and fuel pump relay and it still does not work. I measured the volts to the relay and it only gives it 2V, and I think they should get 12V? correct...
  4. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    Hi, so I have an e46 323ci -00. All power windows work except the left "vent" window. I have tested the motor and it's fine and I have checked the switch and the fuses and everything is good. I can hear "clicking" sound from the relays when pressing the window buttons but the "clicking" sound is...
  5. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    So I picked up an 07 328xi, car has been very reliable to me. Runs Drives and looks great. Now when you insert the key there is the buzzing of a relay inside of the fusebox under the passenger glovebox. The car sometimes will grind the starter during cranking as if you are starting an already...
  6. E36 (1991 - 1999)
    Hello everyone, i have ran into a problem with my e36 320 ´94 After my car had started to run bad sometimes it threw a code for the maf, so i replaced that but it seems that it hasn´t done a difference and instead a new code showed up: 37 DME Main Relay : Delay Has anyone ran into this kind...
  7. E30 (1982 - 1993)
    Hi guys, im missing one of the three relays that are beside the firewall. the ones i have are: v23134-c52c-x90 ecu relay and 0332014456 fuel pump relay. What is the code for the co2 replacement relay i need. When i search for it, i only find the fuel pump relay....are the two relays the same?:dunno:
  8. Do-It-Yourself H.Q.
    My right blinker (front and back) goes off and on when the car is off and will turn on and off spontaneously while driving and/not using the blinker. One thought it could be a relay problem. What should I do? :dunno: Thank you, i<3cars
  9. X5 E70 (2007 - 2013)
    Since it's gotten warmer, I've recently noticed that I'm not hearing the auxiliary fan kick on.. especially at stop lights when the car isn't moving and it's like 90° outside. I tested the fan in ISTA and didn't have any problem getting it to turn on. One thing I did find was that the DME could...
  10. E82 / E87 / E88 / F20 1 Series (2008 - 2014)
    Hi. Do anyone know what may cause the problem for the rear wiper and washer not working? Sometime in the cars life the rear washer liquid froze the motor and it cracked, so I bought a new one, and fitted it. But the motor won't move. Checked the fuses F48 and F39 and they are good. The...
  11. E36 (1991 - 1999)
    I have problem with my cabrio BMW 318i (1994). After a long stand I have jammed fuel pump (that's obvious), but even more, I have no power in fuel pump power cable. I measured the cable and is OK (manually attach +12v on fuse 18 and check it at the fuel pump plug) So I replaced DME and fuel pump...
  12. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    So I've encountered my first SAP on my grandfathers E46 318i. Basically the motor is not working (when cold it basically has an exhaust leak), I measured power at the plug and getting nothing. Checked 50a fuse in panel, checked the fuses in the engine bay, replaced the relay behind the...
  13. E36/7 Z3 (1996-2002)
    My 2000 z3 2.8l will not start at all and appears to be a fuel pump issue. When checking the voltage on the fuel pump plug no power is coming through the main two wires. The only power that is read is 12 volts through one of the smaller wires which i assume is for the fuel gauge. i have replaced...
  14. 7 Series - E38 (1995 - 2001)
    If i sit at idle, my CEL flashes for about 1/4 of a second every 2-3 seconds, slowly increasing in frequency and length, until the CEL just sticks on there and the car comes damn close to stalling. RPM's have dropped to nearly 0 when this happens, but usually hover at about 400. The CEL Code is...
  15. 7 Series - E38 (1995 - 2001)
    I recently got a check engine light/code 1264, for the secondary air pump/relay. unplugged the battery knowing i'd be working with lots of electronics, took out the 2 DME modules to access the relay. It wasn't broken, it was just straight up missing. Bought a tested one, put it in, put the DME's...
  16. 7 Series - E38 (1995 - 2001)
    Re-asking question to clarify, with pictures. I've got a CEL code 1264 for "oxygen heating element", coupled with a rough idle that starts maybe 2 minutes after the car does and random stuttering when driving that's been getting worse. The code, according to the internet, has something to do...
  17. E34 (1989 - 1995)
    I accidentally put the battery in backward and now the fuel pump does not run. I tightened the positive lead, but once the negative lead touched the post and sparked, I disconnected it and switched it around (made contact for less than a second). The starter turns over freely but does not...
  18. X3 E83 (2004 - 2010)
    Can anyone tell/show me where the relay for the compressor is located on the '06 X3 please? I'm guessing it's one of the relays in the Engine bay next to the firewall but I'm not sure which one..
  19. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    Window simply won't go up or down bought a new motor and regulator thinking was obviously that when the fuse was fine. Installed new motor and regulator and nothing so I tested the old motor with a battery and it worked fine . Only thing that happens when I click the switch to up or down is a...
  20. E63 / E64 6 Series (2004 - 2010)
    Good Afternoon everyone! So, I've ran into a bit of an issue with my '05 645Ci that I am hoping someone here will have the knowledge to assist me. For some reason my radiator fan is not wanting to come on. I spoke with a BMW mechanic and he told me that he was 99% sure it was the water pump...
