resistor

  1. X5 E70 (2007 - 2013)
    Hi BMW colleagues, My front AC quit on me and im sure its the AC Blower Motor assembly. I want to check the resistance on the resistor attached to the blower motor to discard the issue being the resistor vs the motor itself. What are the resistance readings in Ohms that I should be getting...
  2. F10 / F11 (2011 - 2016)
    Longtime BMW owner here, and all I can find online regarding the blower motor issues is the final stage unit and or the blower motor. I have already replaced the final stage unit in my car. here is what was and is still happening: Enter Car Brake pedal, start. MAX AC ... Runs for 30-60 seconds...

    Anyone know where I can get this part? Or if you're parting out a 1995 bmw 530i if you have this part available how much would you charge me for it.
  4. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    I have searched everywhere on the Internet so that I could find out how I could do this with now luck! I put in aftermarket led bulbs for my Back-Up and Turn Lights. At the front of the car, I simply put load resistors and the hyper flashing quit. But I can't figure where to do this for the...
  5. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    Hello Bimmerfest members, I've searched for installation guides for resistors to get rid of the error messages from led upgrades. (Reverse lights) Since I couldn't find one, I went and figured it out myself and decided to share my experience. The outcome, it works. No more reverse light...
  6. 7 Series - E38 (1995 - 2001)
    As you probably know, pre-facelift E38 has a 3-speed auxiliary fan with two ballast resistors. One of those resistors often goes bad, which keeps the fan from running when the AC compressor is on. When that happens, you have several options. You can get a used fan, if you can find one that's...
  7. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    So at about 140k miles my blower stopped working completely, through research I decided to replace the blower motor resistor. I bought an aftermarket FSU from auto zone and put it in and it worked for a couple of says. Then the speed control stopped working and sometimes it wouldn't blow at...
  8. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    Looks like I'm going to have to have to replace my blower motor resistor for a 2002 330i. Anyone have any suggestions of what brand to buy? I'm looking for the best bang for the buck. Something that'll last but doesn't have to be overboard. Thanks in advance!
  9. 5 Series DIY
    Hi All, This is my first post, so here is a DIY. I have spent numerous hours researching on how to get rid of my SRS light. I have read people using all kind of different resistors, from 1 Ohm to 100 Ohm, 2.8 Ohm, and etc. So I went to radio shack and got a bunch of different resistors. After...
  10. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    I have a 2003 e39 and the A/C has stopped blowing. If I travel down the freeway and open a window I get some flow through the vents, and it is cold. So I think my problem is simply that the aux fan has stopped working. The cooling part I think is working. I took it in for repair and the shop...

  12. E36/7 Z3 (1996-2002)
    Ok I have searched the site and can not find where to look and how to access my blower motor on my 99 Z3 in order to replace my blower motor resistor. It cant be that difficult but how the heck to get to it without tearing the dash apart. Also how to replace the bulbs behind the middle console...
  13. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    Hi, can anyone help point me in the right direction as to what I should check before resorting to letting a dealer rob me? My 2006 318d's heater has totally packed up, it's a manual aircon car btw. The heater matrix gets hot but no matter what I do the fan will not run, checked the 30A fuse...
