    So I have a 2007 525i I got it just a little over a month ago from a dealership All maintenance was kept up on it by the previous owner. I tried giving a friend a jump one day, and my car ran fine the rest of the night, but the next day it would just shut off on me when I was coming to a stop...

    Hello, I briefly left my gas cap off after refueling. The gas cap was only off for about 20 minutes while I drove home. Two days later, my car sputtered at start-up and shook. About 2 minutes later, the "service engine soon" light came on. I've done very minor repair work on my car myself...

    My 2009 328i x-drive was in the shop for three days trying to figure out what is causing the engine light to stay on (won't pass inspection with it on). He said he had to work through a flowchart which included drive cycles and cold starts. He cleaned the Vanos solenoids, screens, swapped...

    I purchased an 07 328i from a dealership with 95k miles on it. The car was in great shape, no accidents, owner took care of it, 1 previous owner. I've had the car for a little over a year now and all of a sudden it started shaking and the Service Engine light came on. The coding said that 2 of...

    I have a 2004 X3 2.5 (122,XXX mi) and the other day my service engine soon came on for a few hours and then went off. I thought it might be tweaking, then my car started taking longer than normal to start. The engine will turn 4-5 seconds before actually starting and later in the day it will...

    Took my 2008 328i with 83k miles to the dealership to fix the instrument cluster after i replaced the battery and i told them to fix anything else that was wrong with it. They replaced the brake wear sensors (as i had already replaced the brake pads myself) and said there was nothing else wrong...

    New battery in May, also just had it checked Alternator is fine - just had it checked Initially I thought it was only acting up when it was cold outside but that is not the case. When EITHER the heater OR a/c are on, the battery indicator light illuminates. When I turn them off, the indicator...

    I have an 06 X3 that I have had in the shop multiple times. The service engine soon light keeps coming on. The scanner says that there is a fault in all four oxygen sensors but I know that's not reality. There must be something else wrong that is setting off these sensors and the BMW repair...

    2005 Z4 Roadster 3.0i. 77K miles. Can battery or charging system issue cause a service engine fault? Service engine was on and battery light was coming on intermittently for about a day. Dash lights lit up like a Christmas tree and car died. Jumped it to get it to Autozone. Had battery checked...

    I have a 2004 BMW 325i that I recently had checked because the service engine light was on. It read that I had cylinders that were misfiring. However, the car was running fine with no issues. I changed the spark plugs first to see if that would cure the misfires and reset the light. It did not...

    I just got 550i 2008 sport package and all going really well. Is it normal that Service Engine Light doesn't show during first few seconds when starting an engine on this model? I had 2002 330i and normally Service Engine Light would appear when I turn the keys and go way after the engine had...

    Hello, My air conditioner would not push any air out of the front vents and only worked in the back seat. I turned the car off and when I turned it back on the air conditioner started blowing again. Then my ABS light came on, then the next day my DSC light came on and the brake light. Now the...

    My 2003 330i started to run kind of rough about a week ago and the service engine light came on. I started to look for pre cat o2 sensors and try that. I drove the car for about a week with the o2 sensor codes on and it idling rough at idle. Then on thursday on my way to work the engine vibrated...
