    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...

    Hey, I just finished doing a valve cover gasket job, spark plugs and oil change... All good until I go riding and there is 0 boost. I look over the vacuum hoses, replace a few that look suspicious but no difference. Thinking thru the process I recall shorting the + pole of the battery in...

  5. E36/7 Z3 (1996-2002)
    I have a parasitic drain on my 2001 BMW Z3. I have traced it to fuse #31. Fuse 31 has links the air conditioning, clock, instrument cluster, and on board and outside Temp displays. I have never worked on an electrical short before. Does anyone have any advice on my next step?

    After my car sat for two months due to overheating/coolant pump issues, my Turn signals, Back-up lights, Hazards, Interior dash, fog lights, Halos Rings, and high beams would not work. The exterior lighting system only provided low beams and the brake lights, along with the rear celis leds. I...

    I own a 2000 528i. I was driving home one night and the dashboard lights shorted out. It included the dashboard, the center panel lights and the passenger window lights on both the drivers and passenger side - EVERYTHING EXCEPT THE STEERING WHEEL ILLUMINATION LIGHTS A week later the lights...
  8. E36 (1991 - 1999)
    So i found a bunch of shorts everywhere where the previous owner hacked stuff in and tore all of it out. But i am still pulling 2 amps with the key out of the ignition. I herd a buzzing noise from the fuse box. It was a couple of relays buzzing and clicking as i plugged and unplugged the...
  9. E36 (1991 - 1999)
    Hey guys, new to the forum and also new to BMW. I just recently bought a 93 318is with a 92 325i m50 engine. Runs and drives great but it keeps dying if i let it sit too long (like over night or even an 8 hour work shift). I have a brand new battery and the alternator test good. I took the...
  10. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    so i searched all over here and never found the exact answer to my issue with all 4 o2 sensors reading bad. in the e box on the passenger side engine compartment i had fuse ef4 blowing every time i turned the key to run. people said it was most likely a short in one of the o2 sensor wires. i...
  11. X3 E83 (2004 - 2010)
    Hey everyone, I'm new to this forum. I have my sisters 2005 X3 for the moment to fix some issues she has been having. Her cigarette lighter keeps shorting the fuse. There is 0 ohms between the to wires that feed it, so it would seem I have a short somewhere in the wiring. I had the console...

    Hi Everyone, My current lease just expired and I'm looking to takeover a 6-7 month lease preferably located in north-east (i live in Boston). My last vehicle was a loaded X3 3.5 AWD so any 4+ seater with comparable engine or better would be most ideal for me. Please email me at...
  13. E36 (1991 - 1999)
    I just bought a short shifter off of ebay, and I am wondering if it possible to install it without needing to get under the car. I have a '95 325i and I am trying to improve my performance inside the car, rather than spending a bunch on the engine (which I will do anyways) but I don't want to...
  14. E30 (1982 - 1993)
    Heya, folks. I have a pidaddle--that is, one tail light works, the other doesn’t--and I don’t know for sure what to do next. I checked the bulb (continuity tester says aye) and I checked the connector (test light says nay). I have been told that since the car has been sideswiped in the front...

    Since February 2013 (2 months after my warranty expired) my 2008 BMW 325i began displaying an annoying intermittent "Electrical System Malfunction" message on my iDrive accompanied by deactivation of the cruise control. Additionally, the AM dial of the radio developed an occasional escalating...

  18. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    So as we were attaching the jumper cables to my E90, the ground clamp popped off and shorted/sparked near the DME/control box grounding bolt. Now my car won't start. It just cranks, but never turns over. The following warning symbols light up: yellow ! in circle with parenthesis around, ...
  19. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    My brake lights are coming on and staying on at random when the car is OFF, with the key out. When I turn the key and start the car, they turn off and go back to working normally, i.e. turning on only when the pedals touched, etc. But the minute I turn it off, there is a good chance they come...
