  1. F10 / F11 (2011 - 2016)
    Hello all! Thanks in advance for any help :) I’m having a nightmare fitting some aftermarket headlights. The pins are all in the wrong place and I’d really appreciate a hand. I have a 2013 pre-lci headlight with pins in positions 2, 3, 6, 9, 10, 11 and 12. The seller is asking me to find...

    Hey guys, Just bought a second hand bimmer and the dome light / light above the vanity mirror hasn't been working since I purchased it. All the other interior lights work fine (glovebox/footwell/rear interior) I have tried replacing all the fuses and the bulbs, but still nothing. I am opting...
  3. X3 E83 (2004 - 2010)
    Hello all, So recently my x3 seems to have been cursed or something but anyways my issue is that the driver side xenon adaptive headlight keeps failing, okay so let me roll it back a bit a few months ago i noticed that my driverside headlight stopped working, I said okay i'll just replace the...
  4. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    Hi folks, follow up question/thread: Having difficulty finding any fuses that seem to operate on switched power, not just constant - got a dashcam hardwire kit, and although I can find constant power (fuse 38 for the CD changer), having trouble finding an accessory power one. Will bust out the...
  5. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    Battery drains. Oh man. This has got me unplugging my battery if I'm not going to drive the cars for at least 30hours or so. The main culprit I can see is the headlight, the angel light globe doesn't work, and I can see the wire casing has crumbled. So I hope the battery drain is the the...
  6. General BMW Questions
    Hi all, I am retro-fitting a cruise control long range radar unit to my F26 X4, but the wiring harness behind the front fender is no longer available, so will have to make my own. Connectors are no problem, but I’m not sure what wire gauges are used. The secondhand radar unit came with a cut-off...
  7. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    After recently buying a 540i i found out that the bottom button panel is not plugged in, which makes me unable to use heated seats or turn off traction control. after looking behind it i also found that previous owners have been cutting a lot into the original wiring loom. After some digging...

    The passenger-side rear turn signal doesn't work on my 2018 X2. It isn't a bad bulb. There are no alerts popping up on the idrive screen, so I don't believe the car knows that there is a problem. If I plug the driver's side unit into the passenger side wiring harness, it works. If I plug...
  9. E85 / E86 Z4 (2003-2008)
    I've been working on the 2003 Z4 passenger door (for a project), which has the following wires, in case it's useful to anyone: 2x thick power cables (3mm, negative) 3 twisted pairs = 6 strands (0.5mm ?) 17 single strands (0.5mm ?) Which have the following colours: thick purple.cyan thick...
  10. X3 F25 (2011 - 2017)
    We purchased our X3 used and have recently noticed that our right tail light on the tailgate has broken clips along the one side making it a little loose from the tailgate. I purchased a replacement assembly used from Ebay. All seemed well, but when we went to replace it we noticed that the...
  11. X1 F48 (2016 - current)
    Hi everyone. New member to the Forum, I am a resident doctor in Upstate New York area with a passion to work on cars. That led me to buy a project 2018 F48 X1 (with just 2000 miles on it!) which was a flood car. I am trying to remove the carpet and access under-seat modules to fix the car...
  12. General BMW Questions
    I replaced my headlight only about 6 months ago with no problems it worked fine until now. I went on a trip and my girlfriends mom was using my car and when I got back the bulb was out again, thinking I must have just gotten a bad bulb, I replaced it again only this time to no avail. So I used...
  13. 5 Series
    Keeping your car's electrical system in good working order is just as important as changing suspension parts in a timely manner. A beautiful and well-maintained car is only the first impression. It can be very deceptive. Malfunctioning electrical modules can destroy all the pleasure and comfort...

    How do you replace the fuel pump on a 2008 BMW X3 will I have to open both sides of the tank
  15. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    Hi Everyone, I have been using this forum quite a bit for help with my cars, so I felt that it would be good to share my recent experience in the hopes that it might help someone else down the road! This will probably be lengthy, but I took a lot of pictures along the way and want to get it...
  16. E36 (1991 - 1999)
    Hey guys, My 91 e36 325i is having issues with the gauge cluster. Essentially I have no backlighting for the gauges but everything else works fine. I have taken the cluster out and checked the bulbs visually and with a multimeter and they seem to be fine, I have also gone ahead and checked...
  17. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    I have a 2000 528i and the guy that owned the car before me was a complete fucking idiot to put it nicely. I'm sure this is stupid but when I took the door panel off there is a 2 wire plug just hanging there and after finding out the hard way in the Arizona sun that he used black rtv to glue the...

    It's not an uncommon issue for German cars, it seems. For whatever the material is made out of, I've heard of rodent damage to wiring for BMW, Audi, and Mercedes. They're attracted to the smell and taste, apparently. I went in to the dealer 2 weeks ago for a sensor that had gone off, everything...
  19. X5 E70 (2007 - 2013)
    Been browsing around and found Lastfit D1S LED kit. Their site don’t cover beemers but it is the correct bulb type and fit. Just wondering if anybody here have gone to LED for their HID X5’s. Factory headlight ballast won’t be used anymore. Kit comes with positive + & negative - cable thst will...

    Hi, I have a 1996 E39 523i, which has an aftermarket Pioneer 1-din stereo installed (see pictures), and the car also has an amplifier in the trunk as well as upgraded speakers. The problem I have is reinstalling the factory stereo. I want to install the factory stereo but I have no clue how to...
