Yes, I bought this car at auction and replaced the battery. Starts and drives. I know nothing about BMW's....I have worked on many Hondas. Any idea where to start with all this? FYI...although they labeled it a flood vehicle, it is very clean in and out no obvious water damage anywhere.

Start out with the electrical ones.
I have heard Autels are professional scanners but BMW diagnostics are better to have in most instances.
You only need a K/D can cable and a laptop . Then you download BMW Standard Tools and Ista D .
Ista D is a complete diagnostic solutions with a searchable data base and guided troubleshooting
containing essentially a shop manual and guided trouble shooting.

INPA or ISTA are Free Downloads. INPA is "Factory-Level" and ISTA is "Dealer-Level" Diagnostic Software. ISTA also includes complete Shop Manual with Interactive Wiring Diagrams, Component Locations, Connector Views, Repair Operations, Torque & Fluid Specs, etc. You can install ISTA on ANY Windows computer. You don't need to be connected to vehicle (with "K+DCAN" Cable) to view documents. Just enter Last-7 Characters of VIN, so you can use DeskTop with NO Vehicle Connection.

INPA allows you to see "FehlerSpeicher" (Fault Memory) in ALL Modules and also "HistorySpeicher" or History Memory, in the DME (Engine Control Module), EGS (Automatic Transmission Module) and EKPS (Fuel Pump Module). HistorySpeicher continues to show last 10 DME Fault Codes (up to 3 occurrences of each) even after Fault Memory is CLEARED.

It would be helpful to know as much of the "Flood" history as possible, such as Mileage at time flooded, so you can separate apparent "water-caused" electrical issues/ Fault Codes from Codes that occurred at mileage BEFORE Flood. Evaluation of "Freeze Frame Data" or Fault Details would likely show a large number of codes at a mileage at, or approximately equal to current mileage (or mileage you began driving vehicle), and that data would be helpful in identifying flood-related issues.

It would also be helpful to know the maximum water level outside/inside the vehicle, although probably NOT available (?)

I would:
1) Get INPA (BMW Standard Tools), and a $30 to $50 K+DCAN Cable;
2) Connect INPA to vehicle and use "Functional Jobs" to view (a) "F2 Identification" which shows all functional Modules in the vehicle, and (b) "F4 Error Memory, ALL Modules" which shows the Hexadecimal Fault Code for ALL Faults in ALL Functional Modules. SAVE ScreenPrints of those screens.
3) Read History Memory in the three PowerTrain Modules: DME, EKPS, EGS and SAVE ScreenPrints.

Then, having saved the data, CLEAR fault codes in all modules. Run/Drive the vehicle in the neighborhood for 10 or 15 minutes, NOTING all Warning Lights or abnormal performance issues. Record that information. Repeat the Functional Jobs viewing/ SAVING of F2 & F4 Screens (Modules & Fault Codes). POST those screens here, and Forum Members can suggest "Triage".:geek:

With any luck, many of the faults occurred when Modules and/or Connectors were "submerged", and once dried-out, those faults will NOT recur. INPA tells you if a Fault condition is "currently present", or NOT. To the extent there is still water in components, or rusted/corroded connectors, we can address those as necessary.

Flood damaged E9x? Dragging it to the scrap yard is the best way to make it right. Hats off for the undertaking.

Salt water flood damage is even worse.

Buy socks on Amazon, not car parts.

Gentlemen THANK YOU for all the suggestions. I will circle back in the next few days with findings. FYI...it was not salt water. I have only driven the car a mile since purchase from auction.

Ditto on the BMW standard tools route per George. I picked up a used Lenovo windows 7 laptop on Craigs list for $100. Then I picked up the $50 cable, and a preloaded hardrive with Standard tools and more off a super helpful seller on ebay for $50.00. That saved the downloads time. All works great for coding and diagnostic work. Best $200 purchase ever. Good luck!
