    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...

    I bought my e46 330i a few months ago as a project...the car came with a set of xenon headlights that were brand new but when I attempted to install them I found the smaller connector that goes into the control module is not there. I'm assuming it would be a connector that came in xenon-equipped...

    Hello, So iv'e owned a e46 2004 Convertible for about 3 years. The originall owner said the car was perfect and it had issues with the keys. I'll be leaving out much more details because it's too much to explain, so i'll only give a gist. Car drove fine when bought it. AC, FOB (Key signals...

    Hello, I am in the process of trying to figure out how to retrofit the OEM home link garage door opener kit on my 2001 bmw e46 330ci. I read that the earlier models do not have the wiring pre wired, also if your car doesn't have that stickers on the rear trunk that means the car was not pre...

My problem is that I have the newer style stock head unit...

I am looking for a replacement however this is proving to be difficult as my door mirrors are electric, heated, with memory settings. I was wondering if someone could suggest a good way of...

    Hi, I have a 2000 318ci (RHD). I've had it for a few years and use it as a weekend car. The car has several problems, but I like it because, well it's fun. I have what appears to be a common electrical problem with the car signals/headlights work but dont show on dash window switches...

    This is probably a stupid question but I've searched via google, realoem and briefly tried the wiring diagram yet could not find the answer to this so I figured I would ask. To what do the wires that are routed through the trunk floor connect to? See attachment. (image not mine) Long story...

    I'm trying to install a secret toggle switch that won't allow the key to start the engine unless the toggle switch is on, in case my keys get stolen so it's harder to steal. I have found nothing about which wire to spice into, best I've found is what I believe to be the starter wire (blue and...

    I was reading about the airbag recall and noticed in 2012 there was a recall related to the tail light wiring issue, Recall# 11V-438: Lamps in Rear Quarter Panel. This issue was described in this thread: http://forum.e46fanatics.com/showthread.php?t=512469 Was curious if anyone had gotten their...

    Hey guys, so recently my speakers have been messing up in my 323. On the drivers door the sound usually won't play through it unless I turn up the volume really loud and even then it'll still cut out when I'm taking hard left turns. Also the sound will get static and scratchiness when driving...

    Hi everyone, I have a 2001 330Ci with about 185k miles. So my turn signals and certain other displays(door/trunk open/seatbelt) on my cluster have been going crazy on me. For example when I'm driving and want to turn I'll turn my signals on but they wont indicate on the dash. They do work...

    So I posted yesterday and got some help, but today I learned that my 2002 325i sedan is an American built BMW, which was imported to Canada. In Canada we need daytime running lights (lights on whenever the key is turned on), but in the US they do not. whoever did this rewired the xenon lights...

    Hi All- A truck recently sped past and broke the driver side mirror off my e46 2004 325i. Bought an OEM mirror from a car in a junkyard (same year/specs). The new mirror has a female 12 pin (6 top, 6 below) connector. Once in the door panel, I found out the old one had two separate male 3 pin...

    New to the forums here. But a short synapses of my dilema is that I've manual swapped my 01 330ci and everything is set in and plugged in EXCEPT the clutch safety switch. I haven't had any luck on finding wiring diagrams or anything of that sort. But from what I've been told I can just jump the...
