My BMW 7series 7351 2004 wont start,it just cranks. started when I removed the battery and put it back. it gives me fault code 2737 anti tampering protection


That fault will cause a no start, it senses an unauthorized person is trying to start eh car. You need a shop to scan the system control module and see what is causing the fault.

I have a 1999 323i bmw and the convertable top doesnt work the light is blinking and i dont know how to check if the motors work what wires do i hook it up to and how can i test everything else


i had the same problem with my 1998 bmw 323i and right under the back drivers seat there is an emergency convertible top lever with a orange tip on it. i removed my back seat to make it easier. when you pull that lever, you will hear a bang sound. that is the sound of the motors disengaging.(there are 3 top motors in the trunk by the left side panel when you remove it) you will then have full access of movement to either put the top up or down. But before you do any of this, i Really suggest you watch this youtube video. if this link doesnt work, you can go to youtube.com and type in bmw convertible top motor stuck and click on the first link BMW DIY #3 E36 Top Repair. I suggest watching the whole video first before attempting or if you want, you can have a mechanic do it! hope this helps

How do you jump start a 2006 750 with battery in the trunk. because battery is very hard to reach


Under the hood of your 7Series there is a metal terminal near the passenger side close to the windsheild. It should have a red cap with a PLUS symbol. Remove the cap and attached the positive side of the jumper cable. There is a large nut to the left of the terminal that is for attaching the negative side of the cable.

Rear seatbelts jammed down backseats


hello tracieandmia, I am assuming that the seatbelt buckles are just underneath the seat. The rear seat bottem can be removed for access. If you reach under the front part of the seat bottem near each corner and lift up, the seat will release. You will need to give it a little yank and use a little force for it to release. Once each corner is released you can remove the seat bottem. To install the seat, slide it back under the seat back and push hard down on each front corner that you had previuosly pulled up at. You should hear a definite click/lock sound when the catches are locked.

Bmw seat wont go back


The power seat uses DC motors. To change direction the polarity reverses from one direction to another. If you hear the motor "clicking" when you try to drive it forward, even though it is already forward, this signals the motor brushes are making contact to the commutator. So if it is "clicking" the problem is most likely the rearward seat movement switch itself or bad connection from the seat switch to the motor. If there is no "clicking" sound, this indicates no power is reaching the motor, it is most likely hair, dust or trash that has entered the motor and become lodged under the brushes, preventing failure of the electric circuit to the commutator. Unbolt the seat, remove it from the car and be careful with disassembly and cleaning of the motor, they can be difficult to reassemble as they have permanent magnets. I am not certain on your BMW, but many manufacturers use a motor with an open end that you can manually rotate the motor by hand with a piece of square key stock, this may also dislodge any debris stuck under the brushes and allow the motor to operate.
