    Hey guys I drive a 2000 323i Last night my car started up perfectly fine, very fast like it always does. About 100 feet down the road my headlights started to flicker which was strange because they’re brand new bulbs but I figured maybe there was a bad connection. Another 100 feet and my radar...

    Hey, I fixed a problem many others have had. After just a few days sitting the battery would discharge. In our case I stumbled into the cause by accident. I was curious where the trunk light switch was located. I then noticed that the lights never do turn off on ours. I just released both...

    This one has me stumped. I've looked everywhere but can't seem to figure it out. Here's the problem. Last Sunday I drove home from Church and stopped at my house for about 10 minutes before heading home to work. When I got back in the car, it would not start. It would not even attempt to turn...

    Sorry, this is probably a very simple answer but I can't find the solution searching the forum: I have an '04 325xi sedan with a dead battery. With no juice, I can't open the trunk to access the battery. I figure that there must be a mechanical mechanism to open the trunk but I can't find it...
