Question about 2000 BMW 328i

1 Answer

Why my BMW is having all this dash, airconditioning and front headlightlots of Eletrical problems?

I have a 2000 BMW 328i. Lately when I turn the engine on all dash indicator lights that usually come on for example: ABS, parking brake on, all lights that usually come on are off. Last time it did this I disconnected the battery and re-connected again, it seemed to have fixed the problem, but everything just happened again. before, all lights on dash go off, it makes a noise, then both dash and airconditioning go off. Also, the left head light when driving goes off. So, I have to turn the head light switch to off then back to on again, but then in a few minutes the left one shuts off again. Please Help :

These cars have a LKM light control module know for failure. Tons of relays and brain boxes also common failures. You need a BMW expert, and maybe someone here knows more.

    If it is like mine, it is a box under the hood on the left side near the windsheild under a plastic cover where all the fuses are. BMW tech guys say you can re-solder every connectin inside this box to fix the problem, but much easier to find a 2004 or later unit in a salvage yard. Even then, expect to pay $125 or more. I now have 4 of these units from pre-2004 cars which I got cheap ansd each one has its own quirks, but at least my headlamps no longer fail. Good luck.

My 2006 320D BMW does not give suffient cooling when turning on the aircondition.

Open the hood and then turn on the ac. The electric auxiliary fan must come on. If that fan is not on( not the center belt driven fan but the small electric one) then that is the problem. replace it. If the fan comes on, check the freon pressure to make sure it is adequate.

The right blinker issue sounds like you have one bulb out either front or rear check them both. The left blinker issue sounds like either bulbs(both out) or fuse, or worst case blinker switch has gone bad on left turn only so not picking up the signal.

Is their a recall on the 2001 x5 bmw transmission and also the brake lights.

Don't know about recalls, but BMW uses GM 6L80E automatic transmissions. These clunkers were built to carmakers' specifications by GM for MANY manufacturers, including BMW, Honda, Sterling, Rolls get the picture.
These transmissions are mechanical and eletrical/electronic nightmares which fail frequently. Many of the problems lie in the carmakers' specifications, asking the thing to do way too many cutesy things to convey a sense of luxury, power, and superiority. They have way too many parts for the task of moving an automobile, and when they fail, they frequently go into a pre-programmed "Limp Home" mode, allowing the use of one forward gear only at a low speed.
BMW is a fine automobile; too bad they over-engineered and contracted out the transmissions.

Aircondition not working....just blowing warm is working

Either you are out of coolent or the compressor is not working.

First check the fuses, then lift the hood and have a friend turn the air on. The compressor should cycle, if not take it to a mechanic. If it does cycle you are low on freon, take it to a mechanic for a system charge. Make sure they check for leaks first.
