Question about 2002 BMW 5 Series

Open Question

I have a BMW 535i and have a problem with the driver side letting down together. One side turns while the other stays motionless while attempting to go down. Could it be that a shaft that connects them together might have came apart?

I just bought a 2008 BMW 535i and the battery has already drained twice. The first time the battery drained in my driveway and another time it happened 1 hour away from home, leaving my wife stranded late...

The original equipment battery on this car is weak. I had to put a trickle charger on the battery for my 2008 BMW 535i to keep it charged. Your other option is to buy an aftermarket battery that is tougher than the original and costs less (about $110 versus $435).

My 2008 bmw 535i sport has excessive noise from the door jams on both driver and passenger side. Sounds like a crinking stair at starts and stops. Also the moon roof has excessive noise and appears to be...

I have the same make and model. I have the noise on the driver side and it's the blinker. It comes apart for some reason and it's not visible to the naked eye, I'm having it replaced next week. Also, there is a problem w/ this series that will cause your car not to start in the morning. BMW is aware of this problem, but haven't informed any of us that paid $60,000 for this model. I suggest you talk to your local dealer, and perhaps buy a Mercedes next time! Hope this helps.

check the black box located in the engine compartment near the firewall. Inside there may be a diagram that tells you which of the relays may be the light switches

My 1985 BMW got locked and it wont stay on

if this is a 1985 model car,then its pretty old...

i think you are saying that you crank it,it starts,then it goes dead over and over again?

or are you saying that you think the security system has disabled your engine?i have a '85 535i and a '84 528e i've had a different problem with the 535i and have just been driving the point being that i cant remember everything about the 535i but i can look and tell you where everything is if you dont know or cant find out.

have you tried holding your foot down on the accelerator while you were trying to crank it?this shouldnt have to be done if your engine is repaired and adjusted properly,but you are just trying to see if it will run.

i dont think the security system would disable the engine like that as you say "locked" which could either mean the security system locked out the engine or that someone told you your motor is "locked up" and that cant be if it runs at all...

if it stays running with your foot on the gas a little then you will need some adjustment or some parts.probably a visit to a bmw shop.i was able to get both the 528 and 535 engine running smoothly with a flat head screwdriver and an allen wrench as well as doing some basic maintenence like changing the plugs,wires,rotor,cap,and oil,air and fuel filters(there are two filters on the 5 series bmw)without taking an 85 model car to the shop and paying a bunch of money to get it fixed,but thats not for everyone.good luck.
