    Last week I was on my way to work and had my music on, I knoticed 2 loud pops coming from my driver side door, I then noticed a burnt wire smell in the cabin so I turned off my music and it stopped. Later on that day after work I walked out to my car, opened the door (the car was not on/ music...
  4. E60 M5 (2006 - 2010)
    I recently had the clutch replaced in my 2006 M5 (SMG). Upon inspection, the tech found that the wiring near the plug for the hydraulic solenoid was exposed/frayed. He suggests that I change the whole tranny for this problem. Is this normal? It seems as if the wires could be re-wrapped.
  5. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    I just replaced the starter on 2006 530I and a wire connector came loose from one of the wires coming out of the power block under the throttle body. Its a 3 prong with yellow, orange and brown/green (striped) wires. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  6. X5 E53 (1999 - 2006)
    I have been getting a check rear lights warning for a couple of weeks. I checked the bulbs and checked the wiring but nothing seamed out of the ordinary. I took it in and got a photo back from the dealer. Apparently I didn't check the bottom bulb. I should have pulled all the bulbs and...

  8. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    Hello all - My '03 E39 was pre-wired for phone, and came with the Motorola phone module and the Voice Command module factory installed. It also came with the NAV and DSP. I installed a Dice MediaBridge unit, which connects to the car's 3- and 6-pin connectors in the trunk, for Bluetooth phone...
  9. X3 E83 (2004 - 2010)
    I installed a JVC stereo in my 2004 BMWX3 using a wiring harness I purchased at Best Buy. It was pretty straight forward, every wire being the same color, except there were a couple additional brown wires on the radio, which were not on the harness. I put the radio into place using a dash kit...

    I HOPE THIS IS THE RIGHT FORUM!! I have a 2002 330ci with a little over 98K miles. 3 weeks ago a truck in front of me ran over a traffic cone and the bottom half ended up under the drivers side front end. I didn't drag it for long as I immediately pulled over BUT there is damage to the...
  11. E30 (1982 - 1993)
    Can anyone help me locate the wiring for the high brake light on my "new" 1988 E30 convertible. I took off the lens to replace the light bulb and there are no wires connected to the light fixture. I can't find any wires in the trunk lid? Where do they snake from the trunk?
