    Hi all, Having a frustrating problem with my '07 X5's iDrive button. The toggling function works flawlessly, but the center "select" button works intermittently. I have seen numerous posts on the internet about rebooting iDrive and that fixing the problem - but the instructions are always for...

    Hi all! My name is Santiago and I´m writing from URUGUAY, South America! I own a 1991 E30 325i CONVERTIBLE which I imported from USA to my country. I had to replace the battery, so I removed the old one and replaced with a new one. When I started the car, the "ENGINE OIL" light in the OBC...

    I have a 2011 528i, new July 2010 and I am the second owner. The car does not have NAV and only 58k miles. The car on startup after it has run a while (after stopping for gas or running into a store), loses the US features. The center display comes up in German. I lose XM radio, telephone...
  8. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    Bought January 2019 with 238k miles. First BMW. After a couple of months, unless I "nursed" the accelerator, the car would misfire, then there would be a constant SES light and the computer seemed to shut off the offending coil pack(s) until the car was shut down and re-started. After that the...

    Hello! I'm new to the Bimmer World! Bought my first one last month. 2006 750i and I LOVE IT! My concern is the headlights! They've oxied very bad! I'm in Tucson, AZ (110 plus degrees in the shade!) and I hear that this usually happens on everything that's older than 10 years. My question is...
  10. 7 Series - G11 / G12 (2016 - current)
    Just thought I would warn you of my experience using one of the well known OBD2 apps to reprogram the various computers on your BMW & G11. Just got my shiny new BMW G11 and thought I'd plug in the OBD2 and pair it to my iPhone and make a few simple changes. When I turned off the car, waited 30...
  11. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    Is there anyway to clear the transmission codes without special software? Can I just disconnect the battery for a while? Or some other hat trick? Replaced my 5hp-19 transmission over the weekend with a known good unit. But the car is still in "limp mode". Wondering if it's possible the...
  12. X5 F15 (2014 - 2018)
    So I recently purchased a used 2006 BMW X5 and I love it! However that battery died the other day and everything was fine except the gas gauge. It says that it less then 1/3 a tank of gas. When the car is actually full. Any idea in how to reset it? Thanks in advance!!

    Hi, My brother's E60 bluetooth not able to connect to any phone. When starts pairing, the handphone wasn't able to find the car bluetooth. Not sure what's wrong.

    I am trying to do a few of things on/with/for my 1998 BMW 740iL. 1) Get the Airbag Light Off on my dash. They have never been deployed. On came on when a someone rear ended me. Didn't do anything other than messed up some of my rear bumper. I heard that shouldn't have had anything to do with...

    Hello, my e46 2004 325i beeped and gave a 37 degrees F warning on the display where the clock normally is. It's now just showing temperature. Playing with the odometer sticks just switches from F to C. Is there a way to get the clock back without having to take it to the shop for them to enter...

    Hey! I have been having tire pressure problems for a few weeks now. After going to fill my tires up a few times and resetting the system each time I haven't had any problems. This last time I finally noticed I had a small leak in one of the tires. I got fix a flat for a temp fix and followed...
  18. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    I'm trying to find a bluetooth code reader that not only reads the fault codes, but also lets me reset them. I've found some good bluetooth readers but they don't reset the fault codes on BMWs. I like the bluetooth/app viewers, and they don't have cords, thought I'd see if anyone here had...
  19. F10 / F11 (2011 - 2016)
    I had recently changed my brake pads, brake rotors and sensors less than a month ( < 1000 miles back). Today the service brakepads light has come on, and I tried to reset it, it does not reset. I was wondering if there is a fix to this situation, or something I am missing?
  20. E89 Z4 (2009 - current)
    Hello, as a newbie to this I need some wisdom from the collective. My wife has a 2009 z4. While driving all the lights on the instalment panel will light, then it says service, bing then reset itself. I can run for days without this, then do it 3 times in 30 seconds. Do you have any...
