Question about 1996 BMW 318

2000 BMW 528i - My blower continues to run.

The blower continues to run when I turn the car off. This is causing problems in the mornings when I get up to go to work with getting the car cranked. I have had the alternator and battery checked and they are both fine. Any suggestions?

    Hi,

    I Purchased a 1999 BMW 528I and all was running well until the other day... I drove an hour to work and when I was leaving the car wouldn't start..it cranked but wouldn't turn over.
    I brought it back to the place I purchased it from and they seem to think the EWS needs to be replaced.. I have heard that it may just need to be aligned but I am not sure and i am kind of afraid to suggest that to them.
    They seemed kind of pissy when I suggested a few things the day I brought it there.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated

    thank you
    Michael

I am assuming you are talking about the blower for the a/c. There is a blower resistor aka final stage located under the glove box. If you remove the lower cover under the glove box and look to your left and down on the left side of the a.c case you should see the final stage. The can get stuck either on or off or at 1 speed.

Why does my fan continue to run after car is shut off?


Which fan are you referring to? The pusher fan in front of the radiator is tied to the AC system. If it continues to run for an extended period after you turn off the key, then there is likely a problem with the relay. I think your model year has the 2 speed fan. Does the fan run at high speed or low speed when you turn off the car? Does it do it if the AC is off?

Heater not working on 1994 528i bmw but ac blower works


Hi it sounds like either the thermostat or the heater matrix, although if there is air in the system then this would also cause this fault. get the thermostat checked first as this could cause more damage if not fixed quickly.

The heater matrix or heater core may be blocked or not circulating the warm air, This is a more expensive job if it will not unblock.

Hope this helps

2000 bmw 528i shudders when first started and when it idles


I had the same issue with my 2000 528i. You more than likely need to have the Vanos seals replaced. BMW will tell you that the Vanos unit needs to be replaced but the problem is more than likely isolated to the OEM seals that shipped with the Vanos. This issue has been reported by several BMW owners. This issue has been thoroughly documented and reported to BMW in an effort to seek a corrective fix. Since BMW failed to address the problem, the guys that investigated the issue started their own company providing superior Vanos seals to the deficient OEM Vanos seals.

The company is Beisan Systems, LLC. I ordered their Vanos seal kit and had them installed at a local BMW performance shop for less than half of what BMW wanted to charge me for a Vanos replacement with the same faulty seals. Besian also provides step-by-step DIY instructions; if you have the time.

Good Luck.
