Question about BMW X3 Series

2 Answers

Ac, radio and turn signs go on and off

I have something weird going on with my car. One of the days, the right and left turn signals did not show on the dash board as I was driving. I stopped and checked, and the actual lights on the car were blinking. Next, the radio started to display “disabled” and the AC stopped blowing the cold air.

The following morning, as I started the car, it was fine. I took the car to the dealership and they said there was nothing wrong with it (yet, they charged me for the diagnostics).

The car was fine for a while, and now it started to do it again, but it comes and goes. I think it does it when it is hot, but this could be a co-incidence.

I took the car to a mechanic (not a dealership), he was not able to tell what’s wrong. Any ideas as far as what this could be?

Were you ever able to find a solution? I've seen several threads which link the problem to the radio connection or the CD changer connection in the trunk...

Not sure of problem, the next time it occurs go straight to a dealer and pull up where you can leave it running and have them explain it to you they cannot fix what they cannot see.

1996 3500 sierra left signal causes all lights to flash


Well, you're dealing with a short. If the right turn signal only works the right side bulbs, you know you're issue must be in the switch. The only way left turn signal would light the right side, but the right signal would not light the left is if you added a diode, which I doubt is the case. So the switch itself is suspect. That or a wiring issue. If you just bought the truck, and this is an existing issue I'd suspect wiring. If it just started doing this I'd suspect the switch.


I would check to make sure someone didn't monkey with the wires and switch the left turn signal with the hazard lights or something (do your hazard lights happen to flash only the left turn signals?). If it has or had an aftermarket alarm you need to check their work and see what may be screwed up. Alarm systems often tap into the parking lights, which will look like all 4 turn signals, but are actually dimmer filaments. Flashing the parking lights would actually make your radio flash too, so I'm kind of leaning this way. Can't say for sure on limited information though.

Emergency flashers flash when right turn signal lever is used. Left turn signals work normally


Check your grounds especially on the right turn signals. A bad ground will make it do all kinds of weird things.

Need to replace left turn signal flasher


This is weird! It seems to me that the left turn signal is getting 12v from somewhere at all times.I don't think the flasher is the problem(most GM systems use a single flasher for left and right)You probably have a crossed wire somewhere(or an add on accessory was connected to the left signal wire,allowing 12 volts to bleed through to the circuit)

Manufacturer immobiliser problem,....dashboard shows a car sign with a lock around it, and my car doesnt seen to start, just sounds liike its going to start, but cant............ .its a fiat punto...


Don't even try adjust or open the unit. Call the dealer or take it back to him or you will invalidate your warranty and that is not worth it. Let the dealer worry about it.

When I turn my lights on, the two turn signals stay on and none of the dash lights come on. The turn signals flash when you flip the lever left to right so i know the problem is not in the blinkers or...


sounds like an open to the lights in the instrument panel, if the lights work in the radio, ac panel, etc.

Or, all the bulbs burnt out at once (unlikely).

Maybe the harness to the instrument panel is loose, but only is accessible after removing the dash board.

97 Chevy truck blinkers not working but hazards do


Try replacing the Flasher first before spending to much money for a possible simple fix. If it's not your flasher then it could be the turn signal leaver.
Ok, this may seem stupid, but that's what they did to the blazer. They set the flasher near the middle and under the center console behind the radio.


It's to the left of the radio right behind the dash. The hazard flasher and the turn signal flasher are side by side.  It right next to the Cig lighter behind the panel. They do mark the turn signal from the hazard flasher on the plastic behind them. Turn is on the right.

Good luck and hope this helps.
