Question about 2000 BMW 5 Series

1 Answer

The air conditioner in my 2000 BMW 528i comes on when it "wants to", regardless of the temperature setting, fan speed, air direction setting, set on "Auto" or temperature outside. Turning off and turning back on does not help. It will either come on when the engine is first cranked or will come on later in the drive (or not at all.) No rhyme or reason to its operation.

Why does my fan continue to run after car is shut off?


Which fan are you referring to? The pusher fan in front of the radiator is tied to the AC system. If it continues to run for an extended period after you turn off the key, then there is likely a problem with the relay. I think your model year has the 2 speed fan. Does the fan run at high speed or low speed when you turn off the car? Does it do it if the AC is off?

Bmw 528i 1999


any check engine light? Try cleaning the intake throttle plate with a lightly soaked paper towel, the plate is located in the intake; with throttle cable attached to it at the top of the engine near the bellows boot attached to the air cleaner assembly that comes off the mass airflow to the intake. It looks a 3.5 mm cd. That plate gets dirty and throws off the idle air control.

I have a coolant leak on my 2000 BMW 528i and now it overheating.


Pressure test cooling system to determine origin of leak. Radiator and coolant reservoirs are common problems. Vehicle is very difficult to purge air from cooling system and may take multiple times of idling until thermostat opens. Sometimes help to rev engine to about 2500 rpm 5-8 times to help build heat and move coolant through system. Must have heater on while performing this task.
