Question about 2007 BMW X3 3.0i

1 Answer

Check engine light suddenly came on after I had my battery boosted. The car started vibrating, shaking while driving and when stopped at a light. The weather was -32 degrees Celsius.

The neighbor who helped me, connected the cables backwards, then corrected it. I started the car waited for the battery to charge. When I drove the car, that's when the symbol with the engine came on and the shaking and rattling started. Should I disconnect and reconnect the battery? Is there some sort of reset I need to do?

    I put my car in the garage and the car starts fine, but the check engine light is still staying on. Should I disconnect and reconnect the battery? Also, when I boosted my car, I went to put gas, but kept the engine running because I was concerned that the car wouldn't start. Could the problem be related to this?

SOURCE: BMW 1988 325 Dashboard orange check light stays on while driving.

The orange light is probably the pads wear indicator showing that the pads are worn out and the cutting out probably you need your car serviced and tune.

hello, if the vehicle ran with cable off one would ASUME alternator is ok! however, i bad diode in the aletnator would allow it to charge yet have a massive voltage draw as well, almost all of todays parts stores will do a free starting and charging test for you! ......ps a large voltage drop would rob your ignition of voltage causing your miss!.good luck, marty

The check engine light is a warning to let you know something needs your attention to be repaired I would try getting a jump. Could be a bad battery. Lets get the battery charged and tested. Cold weather will stop your car from starting if you have a weak battery. You dont need to tow the car just take the battery to Autozone or Walmart to be charged and tested for cca...cold cranking amps

SOURCE: i just bought a 2001 bmw 325ci the car had a rough

Welcome to the world of BMW's. return the car to the seller. you got a bad one. You got an electrical short draining the battery. Bring a blank check and sign it over to the dealer. They're going to have to run through the entire electrical system to find the short. That work alone is worth more than the a used up 2001 325i.

I WOULD ALMOST BET THAT THE SHAKING OF THE CAR IS DIRECTLY RELATED TO THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT, THUS ONE PROBLEM. IT COULD BE BAD INJECTOR(S) OR JUST POOR MAINTENENCE. WITH 88K ON IT I THINK IT WOULD BE SOMETHING MINOR. HOPE THIS HELPS. LET ME KNOW. THANKS FOR USING FIX-YA. THANK YOU IN ADVANCE FOR AN HONEST RATING AS WELL.
