    Jump to the most recent post. Car cranks now, but misfires a lot. Hi guys, my 2002 330i 137k, cranks but won't start. Here's a list of events that have transpired so far: -Brought my running car to my dad's place to replace the CCV, since I thought it was leaking oil. I had already changed the...

    Pulled and re-inserted a couple fuses, alarm went off, and now Windows, top up/down, and locking are all disabled. Note: Sorry, but none of my photo attachments are appearing - not sure why...hopefully the post is clear enough w/out them. On a 2005 330ci. My central locking button in the...

    Hi all, I’m fighting a bit of a weird one. I own a 2000 323ci manual and have recently purchased the car. Going through I found it had a p0340 code and ultimately thought it would be an easy change of the sensor. Changed the sensor and found no change so I decided to check the wiring. Iv found...

    Hi - 2 days ago i noticed my both wing mirrors had been adjusted to the widest outward position. I re-adjusted the mirrors and took the car for a drive, stopped and locked the car, when I came back and unlocked the car the mirrors began to readjust themselves to the same outward position. Today...

    Ok so I just wrapped up some rear subframe repairs and reinforcement on Sunday, took it for a 3-5mile test drive and the battery telltale kept randomly turning on and off, usually when engine speed was above 2500rpm but not consistently. I even stopped and checked the battery connection was...

    2001/2002 E46 Compact I used to have a problem where, after a power wash, my key fob wouldn't work for a while, no lock/unlock, no trunk release (presumably until water evaporated from somewhere), only the manual key hole would work or the central locking button inside, and when this happened in...

    Hello, I have a 2004 330ci vert and i accidentally left my windows down and the drivers side interior got soaked, i dried it up and now my turn signals, hazard lights, and backlit dash no longer work, the dimmer doesn’t do anything, and turning the knob to change the headlight settings does...

    Hey y'all, new here. I was driving my 04 325i touring the other day when the warning light for my passenger side headlight came on. Right about when it lit up, I noticed what smelled like burning matches, so I pulled over to try and diagnose. No visible smoke, the smell only seems to come...

    Okay so I have a 2000 323ci with 208XXX km's & I have been chasing misfires and codes for 2 months now. I have taken it to two indy mechanics and have replaced/fixed a bunch of parts and leaks, but I keep running into the same code... Cylinder #3 misfire (plus an intermittent #6 misfire but its...

    So i’ve had this car for almost a year now, and it’s still eating me alive that I haven’t this problem out yet. I’ve posted about before but I feel like I was not looking in the right direction and i’m still not 100% sure but I feel like i’m closer. To give a little detail this problem only...

    Hello. I decided to replace my sidemirror. But i have just noticed that a new one has 6pin , but my car is 12pin sidemirror. Can anyone recommend what can i do. The reason my replace was a terrible condition of cover( case) of sidemirror, but motor works. Can i switch motors or connect 6 pin to...

    This just started happening recently, but my stereo has been cutting out intermittently when using electrical things, like blinkers, turning on my headlights, or when my DSC comes on. Sometimes it will cut out when I put some power down, or when shifting gears. Most of the time, only the audio...

    Hello anyone reading this, I have a e46 330ci convertible with the 5spd manual. The car has been sitting for months at my cousin's house, today he sent me a video of the car smoking. The weird part about this situation is that the car was not running at all and hadn't been started in weeks, but...

    Okay so here is the deal. I have no idea how to diagnose wiring. Before beginner. I also have a problem with the wiring to my E46 330ci. It has 170k miles on it and I'm restoring it slowly but surely got an engine rebuild on the way because that's the easy stuff. But wiring. My instrument...

    I’ve been trying to chase problems on this car for the past few weeks and more problems keep happening. It started with my intake manifold runner not opening/closing when it needed to and it was misfiring then a ton of circuitry problems started happening. I’ve replace my DME already so it’s not...

    So I have a 2002 325xi, all stock electronics, including the stereo. Im looking to do a cheap upgrade, a double din touchscreen. Preferably the in dash ones. I've seen the BOSS one's they sell in autoparts and bestbuy for about $160 to $190. They both have reverse cameras too. I want to know...

    Hello all. I've been having electrical issues draining the battery on my e46 for a while now and I cannot seem to get them to go away. Once we fix the draw, another draw will appear in a different, seemingly random place. We've gotten the battery replaced numerous times so that can be ruled out...

    My e46 330Ci has had continuous battery problems. A week or so ago my passenger side headlight went out and with that problem came a parasitic draw. (for over a year we’ve been dealing with a parasitic draw that keeps returning.) So, I wanted to do a draw test by pulling fuses to see if the draw...

    I have an issue with the electrical system in my 2003 330XI. Got it running and took it for a test drive. Noticed I was having and issue when the stereo sound would cut out when I touched the brake and then no sound from the stereo. Needed fuel so I took it to the gas station and put fuel in it...

    Hello guys! A few months ago I had a completely dead battery around 1V. It was 70Ah, so the new one I got was 74Ah if that makes a difference. After that, I also changed the interior fan control because that was actually draining my battery in the first place. All was fine until I noticed that...
