    What does this fuse go to? I have a 0.21v parasitic draw and this is the only fuse when unplugged that stops the draw. 2006 325ci m54 ms45.1. I have been searching for a few days for my parasitic draw issue. I check some of the common parasitic draw areas and I found nothing. This is the only...

    I have an e46 M3 that I keep in dry storage. Yesterday I took it out for a gentle run to get heat through the block & chassis. I pulled up outside the garage and turned the engine off to open the door. When I restarted the vehicle, I could hear a strange noise so switched the engine off. I then...

    Hey guys, I have a 320i 2001 limousine and have an issue with my angel eyes. I wired everything up just like the tutorials say but the AE only light up when I unlock the car, in other words only when the footwell light is on. This means that the accessory wire in the fuse box in the engine bay...

    Driving along and without warning drive seems to have quit. No matter what gear no go. On Jack stands all wheels and drive lines rotate freely. No noise, no disconnect. Could this be an electrical issue? Fuse (F102=TCM)? I seen this topic before but never resolved. Thx. One note, for about a...

    Hey all, I have a 2004 330ci sport (6 speed manual) and bought some led light bars that are smoked over. I have black grills and was going to mount the lights inside the kidneys to give it a stealthy hidden look when the car is off. They will be set up as DRL. I do not want to hook them up...

    Two nights ago I left my sunroof open and my passenger side window open. It rained pretty hard and was surprised when I came out to my car. I grabbed a towel and wiped off my electronics and my seats and so on. I drove my car home that night and the radio and climate control screens were all...

    So none of the electric trunk release buttons on my 2001 330ci convertible work. Not the one on the key, in the cockpit, or the one on the trunk. I read on here that it is a common problem and the common solution was to check the wire from the trunk, so i checked them and soldered the cut ones...

    What does fuse #63 go to? I was driving and the air shut off. Took it home, opened glove box and used the Fuse Diagram & slapped in one of the spare fuses. As soon as I turned on the car and the air, the fuse popped and a bright flash of light went off. Any help on what to do? I'm guessing...

    So bought a used '03 330i and everything is great. Everything work fine until one night I noticed my headlight went very dim. They just went out the both of them. I was about to get the bulbs replace but I was told by some mechanics it's most likely a fuse problem. If so, where is the fuse for...

    Today I was changing out a bad fuse and accidentally pulled out a fuse that goes to the instrument cluster. Now a yellow "BRAKE" light stays on, the triangle with exclamation and counterclockwise arrow (maybe traction control) in the owner manual it's called the "ASC+T/DSC and ADB/ABX/DBC"...

    I have a 2003.5 m3 with the harmon kardon sound. I was on a 600 mile trip when my radio said PHONE on the screen (non navi) and then the radio portion of the screen shut off. When I have the interior lights on all the buttons and dials light up but the radio will not come on and I cannot play...
