BWM 1998 328i E36 A/C Control Unit

My A/C Control Unit keeps shutting off and on. I took it to a repair shop, they told me I had to replace the A/C Control Unit. I read that this is a common thing that happens with this year of BMWs. Is there a way to fix this problem before spending hundreds of dollars.

I notice my ac lights flicker on my ac heater control unit, took it to a shop to have looked at an they stated I need ac heater control unit with ac lines an 800.00  So I took to another shop...


sorry but sticking a can of gas in is the cowboy way of setting up the AC ,you must use the correct machine to empty weigh the gas removed and then to vacumn and charge the oil ,then the CORRECT WEIGHT OF GAS ,not a boy racer can of trouble which is banned from resale use here in europe as owing to its dangerous and intoxicating properties.This sort of work should only be done by a professional with a robinair or similar type machine.Can you imagine a terrorist releasing this gas on a underground tube train ,Yet you buy this poison over the counter ??

    I have a 2006 Hyundai Elantra. At 84,000km, it


    you should have took it back first time ,the fault is to do with the control unit inside the gearbox ,its electrically operated and the manufacturer does not sell spares for the internals of an auto box ,so its an exchange gearbox complete ,a right rip off as far as i am concerned ,take it to another dealer out of town and dont tell them about changing the oil,

    Engine cuts out, or stalls while driving. Will crank over, then restart after a few minutes 1997 BMW 328I


    wet ecu

    the ecu compartment is under the windshield on the passenger side on E36

    you gain acess to it under the hood....
    this compartment gets wet, the ecu lays on a flat surface in that
    compartment.

    the bottom side of the circuit board gets wet and starts corrosion.

    remove the ecu, take the bottom plate off, clean the bottom of the circuit
    board with alcohol and a soft tooth brush.

    you should be able to see the signs of corrosion or conductive build up.

    this gunk bridges solder points doing all sort s of wierd things to your
    car, including false sensor readings from asc/abs controllers and other
    sensors....

    all the way to engine failure and worst case burnt and shorted wiring
    harness.

    I'm on my 3rd ecu, took me and the repair boys a few years to figure this
    one out.

    BTW: i would get that ecu mounted above that flat surface, use some sort
    of standoff to raise it so that it is not laying in the wet.

    Both motor fans keep running after car is shut off


    Faulty fan relay, little square box, costs an arm and a leg. Try the local automotive parts recycler, you can't get BWM parts at the junkyard :)
    The little box is located, with teutonic efficiency, next to a bunch of little boxes just like it. Check your owner's manual or a shop manual for which one it is.

    Service engine light keeps coming back after repairs with the same code


    did the shop that first worked on it properly reset the code to zero? The light will keep coming on no matter what repairs you do unless the code is properly reset.
