Question about 2005 BMW X5

Open Question

Running weird when start and. Various warning lites come on and go out on its own.

Bought used few months ago and maybe made a mistake. Might sell already. Seems warning lites come on and off too often And no one taught me anything about car or gave me a manual. Also a bmw dealership left it with no oil and that's a sign to come. Not a drop. Took it to different shop next day and was showed and told no oil. U would think BMW would do better. Think it would be nice car but not economical for 61 yr old woman with 1 leg. Any suggestions as to what I should get comparable in size and options on car. Feels safe anyway and holds road well. I don't need German made car and wasn't advised. Thank you. Sibyl lake

SOURCE: Battery drained completely BMW E90 2005 model

Connect your old battery with another battery from another car (WHILE KEEPING ALL CABLES CONNECTED ON BOTH CARS) just user a bridge cable otherwise you'll need. a code to reactivate your BMW again. Try now to start your BMW engine. Now go to the nearest battery dealer to change the battery WHILE KEEPING YOUR ENGINE ON, otherwise you'll need a code to activate your BMW again :)

Good Luck!

SOURCE: High oil Consumption, BMW M5

Look for Castrol TWS 10W60 Motor Oil. This car should not burn so much oil, you need to use a different kind. It is recommended by BMW as well. I also heard the VANOS isnt an issue anymore, can be fixed with a different MAFF. Good luck!

possible valve cover leaking,at least this is more likely the cause, they make a die that you can use too help determine where it is leaking but some dies require ablack light too see the die,

2004 Malibu panel shows check gas cap


Check for applicable trouble codes, see if anything related to evap system? Your emissions system probably pulls a small vacuum on the gas tank and evap system to check for leaks, If it doesn't pass the test, you will get an evap code or gas cap lite? The place that replaced exhaust system can they check for trouble codes? Anything?
To check for codes, yourself, at the least, you need an obd 2 code reader.
I don't know if exhaust repair caused a problem or just coincidence?

Hi, Both my headlights on my polo have just stopped working. No warnings. All interior lights, fog lights and side beams are working fine. I had one of my headlights replaced 2 months ago so can't imagine...


It sounds like you have a short. As for the headlights go through owners manual to locate the main relay for the headlights in the power distribution box.

Is this a gasoline powered motorcycle/scooter? If so and if you got off in dirt, the carburator may have dirt in it. Drain the gasoline, clean the jets in the carburator and try again. If its electric, sorry, can't help!

We bought a brand new battery one month ago. A few days ago, the car wouldn't start. We jumped it and it started. Today it won't start. When the key is turned, the car makes no noise. No clicking, no...


Check and clean the terminals then boost the car to start it after it starts. Well it's running take off the positive terminal if the car stops running the alternator is no good and you have to replace it.

94 town car leaking coolant


you have a leaking water pump... there is a "weep" hole at the bottom of it and when the inner seal goes bad it starts slowly leaking out of it as a warning sign to replace it. It will do that for a few days, or months even, until it starts leaking profusely.
