Question about 2004 BMW 5 Series

Open Question

I have a problem with my 2004 BMW 525i. I get a error message: "remote control is not in the ignition lock, re-starting the engine may no be possible. Leave the engine running"

At times, I cannot start the engine. I have to continually mess with it and eventually it will start. Frustrating.

SOURCE: My 2004 BMW 525i won't start (no clicking, slight humm)

starter motor solenoid problem by the sounds of it, check the connections are clean and secure, give it a tap with a soft head mallet or hammer handle. If it doesn't spring back into life it will need replacing.

Remote start


James;
You would need a Fortin int-bmw1 Interface Kit which Maintains the integrity of the
vehicle's security on push-to-start ignition systems also a Fortin EVO-CAN It is a
transponder bypass that will also allow you to control the electric door locks,
factory alarm, heated seats and other available options including a tachometer output.
Many makers IE: AUDIOVOX APS51, Avital 5303l, Scytek 5000rs,
Bulldog Bulldog Security Deluxe500B
Good luck

It is very important that the engine not overheat! The head can crack and this would be very bad.
I think your car is too new to need a new radiator.
Make sure the coolant level is correct.
Check the thermostat housing for leaks.
When the engine is hot, check if the fan clutch is locked up and actually driving the fan. Turn the engine off and grab the fan and try to turn it. It should turn stiffly. If it spins freely the fan clutch is dead.
It is possible that the water pump impeller has failed, especially if it is a plastic one.

Have a 1995 bmw 525i and i went to statrt it one morning and the key turned in the ignition but the car would not turn over there was no spring resistance when you turn the key to the start positition


It sounds like the rod which goes from the key cylinder down to the slide switch has come loose. The rod is along the bottom side of the steering column (or insidie it). If you reattach the rod all should work again.

BMW remote control problem


I have a e60 525i that I just brought and it has the same problem, the owners manual suggests driving with the key in the ignition for a long time as the batteries are rechargable and may have gone flat, i have tried this and it doesnt seem to work

i also read something about getting water in the aerial about the rear window and that wrecks the receiever. My car isn;t under warranty so not looking forwarding to taking it to bmw
