    I found a brown wire that look like it was cut. This is located under the dash passenger side near the ac blower It goes into a black plastic with multiple brown wires like it that i circled in the pic above. Just trying to figure out where the other side goes. It is number "3" from the...

    New user and first post!! so I recently bought a 2005 645ci coupe that is in emaculant condition as far as cosmetical and mechanichal things are concerned but after driving it now for a few weeks I have come to find that some of the wiring in the front end is all out of wack. I'm getting error...

    Have a weird burning smell coming from my engine. 2007 BMW 530XI Wagon. Noticed this exposed copper wire and some melted plastic, anybody have any idea what this is, how to fix it? Edit: if you rotate the image 90 degrees to the left then it is easier to look at.

    Thanks to the great thread by Dyl from November 2017 I took out the telephone cradle from inside the armrest on my F32. Having seen in his thread thatb he converted the Blue Socket left after removal into a USB for inside the armrest compartment. I have taken the wire apart and from a 4 pin...

    Hello all, I got a dashcam/rearview camera off of amazon and the instructions told me to take off the plastic molding in the backseat to access the trunk. I found out that my backseats do not have the plastic molding. I do not have the winter package, so my seats do not come down. Is there any...

    Hello, I own a 2006 BMW 530i, E60. I noticed today that the underside of my driver side mirror (the arm), has a cover(?) piece missing, that normally protects the inside wiring from the elements. Anyone know how I can fix this? Picture attached. Much thanks

    Hi All, I've just received a Roav Dash Cam for Christmas as a present. I attempted to hard wire the Dash Cam into the fusebox in the engine bay. The connector I have (LINK) is all working fine. However, when I try to close the lid on the fusebox there isn't enough room as the lid catches on the...

    Where does my throttle wire go? I've been stuck on this for so long, I assume it should go directly under or around where the rubber U thing is. When I got this 2000 BMW E46 328i the engine was in disarray so I'm trying to fix it but I'm stumped. The throttle body that is in my car...
  9. 7 Series - E38 (1995 - 2001)
    There is one wire that splits into two wires and connects to the little plastic housing connecter that plugs into the radiator level sensor for the expansion tank on the bottom. Normally there is some kind of wire casing but in this instance there is not since the car is used. I'm guessing...

    When you connect your new aftermarket stereo's harness to an aftermarket harness like a Metra for example, what do you do with the two black grounding wires? Do you connect them together and the e46's black wire on the other end is already grounded somewhere? Or do you ground the Metra black...

    My 2000 528i seems to have a loose plug from the fan to the power source. I have called a few reputable, well-known mechanics in Denver and they seemed to think the problem was under the hood even after I told them the details, meaning that they will probably take a very long time to even find...
  13. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    I have a 2002 BMW 330i, when I try to use the buttons on the steering wheel, such as the volume or the cruise control it won't work, I found a wire cute and connected somewhere else leading from the steering wheel and I also found a 3 pin adapter that I have no idea where it goes. I will post...
  14. 7 Series - E38 (1995 - 2001)
    OK so... first off.... great forum! Love all the info I've seen on here. Now, I've looked through the forums and read through the threads but haven't found anything that relates to my situation. What I want to do: Install an aftermarket (Pioneer AVH-P 8400bh) double din in my 2001 740i... no...

    I was replacing my alternator and found a wire that was unplugged and has been melted a little bit, the wire leads under the engine and I have no idea where it would plug into. Any thoughts? Sorry for the lack of information.

    So I have had my 1996 318i in the family for a while. I recently, being 17, inherited this car, and discovered some problems. The mileage counter is really dim, and gets dimmer on the right side of the piece. Also, I can't listen to music because no power comes into the stereo. Basically, I want...

    Hi! I recently got a Aftermarket CompuStar Alarm & Starter in one installed in my 95 740iL. The guy that put it in only got one wire i guess from the central locking to lock & unlock the doors. So on my 2 way remote, if i press lock the car locks. If i press lock again car unlocks. Same with...
  18. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    so I've installed a sub and amp into my trunk of my 06 m5 and have taken the speaker signal out of the two rear speakers. The problem I have now is it seems only to pick up mid bass. My stock speaker system has the subs installed under the rear seats which leads me to believe that the signals...
  19. E36/7 Z3 (1996-2002)
    I have a base-model Z3, no heated seats, no dash computer, just the analog clock. I calculate mpg with my iPhone, but I'd like to keep an eye on the outside temperature. I'm throwing this question out just to see if someone else has tried this. I purchased a very nice temperature gauge that is...
  20. E85 / E86 Z4 (2003-2008)
    Hi, just bought a rough/cheap 2003 Z4 convertible with the top stuck down and a dead radio. A local bmw specialist said there is some type of electrical component that causes this (a burnt wire or something of the sort that causes both the radio and power top to die). Does anybody know which...
