    Replaced my FSR with a new Behr/Hella 351321511 a year ago to fix an intermittent blower fan issue. Solved the problem until it started again now (fan cuts on for a second, off for ~10, on for a second, then off for ~10, etc). Did I just buy a bad FSR? Or is something else killing it prematurely?

    Hoping not to create a duplicate thread, but I haven't found this specific issue. I bought my 2004 325 Ci convertible almost four years ago with 52K miles. I frequently had a cricket/chirping sound at certain blower speeds, and an occasional hot/burning smell coming from the vents (not outside...

    :bump: The Air in my 2001 325Ci went out. I researched and installed FSR and new blower motor but still not working. Controls seem to be all working normal. Just no air coming out. Checked #28 and #50 Fuses. What am I missing?

    I had hoped this particularly annoying problem would be solved as it's all kinds of problematic when the car doesnt get warm inside. I noticed that when it's real cold the fan would not start. New fsr - problem remains. I've noticed that the fans have a whirring/whining sound when on. This is...

    Just curious how many have never had to change their FSR (final stage resistor)? I always hear stories and have witness them too. But this is my second E46 and both have had over 150,000 miles. I have NOT had to change my FSR on either. I don't set my HVAC to "Auto". I do however almost always...

    I'm a new member, DIY'er and first-time poster. I have a 2004 325i sedan. Last week on a hot day, I heard a faint whine from what seemed like the blower. The sound was high, centered and deep in the dash, but a low-pitch whine, worse at higher blower speeds. I suspected bearings would be...

    Decided to change out fsr while waiting to see if aux fuse was killing my battery. Upon changing i noticed how the lanch holding it seemed to be stuck. Was a b!tch but tried my hardest not to break it and upon pulling old unit out, immediate realization that this one is shockingly different...

    Recently my fan would not work on some days, and work on other days. I'd turn the fan up all the way and there would be no air, but sometimes it would randomly come back. I thought it was the Final Stage resistor, so I bought a new Behr one and replaced it, but unfortunately I still have the...

    Hi Guys and Galls, Enjoying out 320i T (2002) for a while now. (also have an E38) Bought it from an old lady (really) and did a bunch of preventive maintenance (WP, T stat, VCG, plugs, all filters, vacuum lines, MAF ect) she is doing great. BUT I have an issue with the ventilation that has me...

    My friend is putting his car down for the winter while he installs a custom turbo setup on his E46 m3 Heres a video i made of his car and we plan to record the process of him installing the turbo, feel free to sub to his channel and see those videos that should get uploaded this winter. Thank...

    Hey there peeps, Long time reader, first time poster. I've been having an intermittent problem with my blower motor, one day out of the blue the climate control panel went dead, no lights or response from any buttons, then a day later it came back to life. Didn't see anything else odd for...

    Hey guys. I've had my 330ci for around 9 months now and naturally a few small problems have popped up. I decided to put off any mods before these are sorted out and for maintenance. 1. Passenger's side headlight flickers off when it angles to the right. For some reason, when the headlights are...

    After researching the most likely suspects for this issue, I settled on the blower final stage resistor. Fuses are fine. At first it appeared that when the car was cold, it would turn on. Then after driving, turning the car off then on again - no fan. As I didn't have time to do this...

    So, based on some recommendations from you magnificent people, I've determined that I need to replace my FSR. Previously, the main symptom was an inability to modulate how hard the A/C was blowing. However, that has now changed (note: I haven't replaced the FSR yet). Now, the fan simply won't...

    Just a general question. I'll be replacing mine soon. It's an interesting-looking bit of gadgetry. Are those heat sinks? What exactly does it do, electronically, and how does it do so?

    Need advice? I'm having a problem with my automatic A/C staying on all the time and nothing i press on will stop the AC or any reaction at all or occasionally the AC unit will not even start until i pull fuse 28,62,63 out. just that in my case no fuse was ever blown up. One time i needed to take...

    I have an 04 330ci that I think is trying to ruin my life. The battery will go dead overnight, in as little as 8 hours. Battery tests fine, and the parasitic draw is 20 milliamps. Charges great, and the battery will stay charged if it is disconnected. I'm about to order a FSR because it seems...

    Hi, I have a 2000 323i, manual. About two months ago, after a really cold -30ish C night, my car wouldn't start. The battery was really old so I replaced it and the car started fine for around 2 weeks. Then the battery died. I jumped the car and drove it for half an hour to charge it back up...

    Could an A/C that blows warm air when switched on be the result of a bad final stage resistor? -Low side pressure checked got a high reading. (up to 140psi) -Compressor clutch not engaging* hence high reading. -All fuses and relays checked, all checked out fine and in working order. -When direct...

    The ac went out in my brothers 330i, the fan would not turn on at all. We change the FSR and tryed again but nothing happened. So we took it to an shop and they said the blower motor was bad. We took the motor out and checked the motor with a battery charger and it spun. we put it back in the...
