  1. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    Past couple of days my E60 starts as normal. Sitting in the Driveway the engine turned off. Tried to restart and nothing happened. No warning lights and the rest of the electrical seems fine. The Battery is only 2-3 months of age. Today went to start it after work, acted the same. Tried...
  2. X5 F15 (2014 - 2018)
    No judgement: washed key fob and it worked for 1 day. Next day while driving, anti-theft alarm/siren going off. Very unnverving experience on the highway sounding like the police, but with no police in sight. Had to pull over and shut the vehicle off to stop the alarm. Third day: Was unable to...

    Hey, 2002 530i I have been having a battery drain on my car. I keep the charger in my trunk, and when I know I am not going to be driving for awhile, I disconnect the battery and put it on a charger. Nonetheless, if I don't put it on the charger it will die. I was doing some research online...

  5. General BMW Questions
    I guess I missed the deadline for ODBII by one year. So is there ODBI on my 1995 740il or any other diagnostic tool for this car? Bought this car as a project. Couldn't open driver side doors and it cranks but won't start. Not even the first pop. Managed to get the doors open, it was just a...
  6. General BMW Questions
    Dear the Collective good, I live up north in the center of our fine country. I have a 2001 530i and recently it has taken a beating. the ccv system froze up on a negative degree afternoon sitting outside of work. I did not know this until after driving four miles and it smoked like a James...
  7. X5 E53 (1999 - 2006)
    Recently I have been having a parasitic draw on my battery. It kept dying over night and I was unplugging the negative terminal a few times since I needed the car in the morning. Then I noticed It seems to be only happening when I lock the doors, If i leave it unlocked while its parked its fine...
  8. X3 E83 (2004 - 2010)
    I was away for a couple weeks and my wife was driving the car, came home and parked it with the steering wheel locked up. I came home unlocked the steering and tried to start the car (it was sitting for maybe 5 days) and nothing happens. Lights and radio come on, it's definitely not a battery...
  9. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    Sometimes when I turn the car off and take the fob out, the brake lights and front lights stay on. If I put the fob back in the car it won't start. The only way to get it to start is to disconnect the battery and connect it back again. Some days this happens 3 to 4 times My mechanic has...
  10. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    Hello! I have an 05 545i (E60) and one day I parked the car and the next morning the car will not crank. I changed the starter, IVR, & IBS and the only way the car starts is if I take the Negative battery cable off and then put it back on. then the car will start but, once I turn it off, it...
  11. E36 (1991 - 1999)
    Hey, guys. I've been a member here for not too long, and I've kinda just bounced around this place when I was bored, but my car has finally stumped me and need help BAD lmao. The car is a 1991 318i with a rebuilt m50 with m54 internals, and the m50nv/m54 cam upgrade. It has a red label 413 in...
  12. E36 (1991 - 1999)
    As the title says, my 1997 318i won't start, though it turns over. I sprayed carb cleaner in the air intake and nothing. Doesn't seem to be getting sparks (none visible). Then I bought a OBD2 reader and found it cannot even communicate with the computer (after 4 tries). Does this mean the ECU...
  13. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    Hello guys, Thank you for your advice in advance. This forum has been a great resource whenever I have trouble with my 2008 528xi. This is my first post and I really hope you guys can shed some lights. Anyway, my car couldn't start two days ago in the morning when I was trying to rush to work...
  14. X5 E53 (1999 - 2006)
    Hello, So I have 2002 3.0d sport x5 and I've experienced huge problem yesterday. It was like 11pm and I was going to my friends, everything seemed fine with car when I started it and I drove it a lot that day and it seemed alright. Anyways as I was going to my friends house with my car, after...
  15. E85 / E86 Z4 (2003-2008)
    So I picked up an 03 Z4 Roadster (manual) recently at a bargain price but with one caveat - it won't start. Since I did not buy it directly from the owner of the car I do not have any history as to what the hell happened. So before I go into details, the main problem is that when I turn the...
  16. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    Hey folks, Posting because I'm really stumped over an electrical issue I cannot resolve. The car, a 2006 550i V8, will not start or click when the start button is pressed. Please bear with me as my illness prevents me from being efficient performing tasks quickly! But I can say I've ran tests...
  17. F30 / F31 / F32 / F33 / F34 / F36 (2012 - current)
    Did a lot of research. Not a fan of dealerships. Like to fix stuff myself. Drove my car to work. Performed fine. Went to pop my trunk to store my back and go to lunch, trunk would not pop. Girlfriend washed the key fob like six times, so this is a frequent occurrence. Press it some more. No...
  18. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    Hey guys, so I'm in serious need of help. Today, I got in my car to start it, and it simply didn't start. No battery light, nothing. Half of the time when I push the start button it clicks, the other half of the time it doesn't. My brakes are very hard to push down. I need help! Never have had...
