May have a vacuum leak somewhere these are sometimes hard to find. Start at the throttle body should be a couple lines there look for holes,cracks in the lines at throttle body and continue down the lines.

I would have everything tested first. Thats usually free at most auto part stores. It does sound like your alternator is starting to fail or possibly your battery.

I have a 2000 Pontiac Grand Am 3400.. wouldn't start one day at all so replaced batt, starter & alternator. Once driven all lights come on and then power loss happens and car shuts down. Jumping...


This could be an anti theft security issue. This happens all the time in GM's. The anti thefts are known to fail and cause the car to not start, stall while driving, or start for 1-5 seconds and then die. A good indication that the security is failing is if you see a light on the dash that says SECURITY or a picture of a car with a padlock thru the window. This link explains the problem, symptoms, and some DO IT YOURSELF solutions. http://vatspasslockpasskeysecurityhelp.yolasite.com/

Need to know what "trans failsafe mode" message


Trans failsafe is "Limp" mode, it means a sensor has triggered due to a fault in OBC. You need to bring it to BMW or a competent shop to have a fault scan done to identify the actual cause. Limp mode allows you to drive short distance (so you're not stranded roadside)

Car wont even turn over batt is good 12.45v


The Water light? you may have over heated the car, also you may have caused a crack in the engine block by driving the car after the Temp light came on, Check the Thermostat, This may have caused the Light to come on and can cause some major problems if not replaced. Good luck!

Flashing battery light on the dash


check batt volts if under 13volts batt needs replaced.
one other test u can do is to check alternator by undoing neg batt cable when car is running, if car dies alt is bad. cars dont need batt to run just to start :)

Seems like the car is staying in "ACC" (accesory key position)


BFC that body function controller. BFC batt fuse controls .the body function controller .its part of the PCM.the BFC controls anti theft system. your interior lights -drl lights- radio -door locks.if your check engine light is on take it to dealership.because your BFC and PCM works together. your car could shut off. that unsafe.when you on a busy highway.you have electrical problem.not a home fix.

Alternator f-150


replace the link between the alternator and the positive side of the battery. This is a fusable link and sometimes can cause this problem this would be the easy fix and is hard to test
