Question about 2001 BMW 330
My daughter has a 330i, her AC or vent fan quit working, the display shows it working when pushing the button but no air flow. Could this be as simple as a fuse change?
I just replaced the "Final Stage Resistor" in my 2001 330i. Fixed the probelm 100% !!!. I followed the instructions descibed found here and on other sites. A little challenging, mostly becasue I hate working upside down, but the repair went as descibed. If you're even moderatley handy this is a straighforward project. I'd say about 60 minutes to carefully remove everything and about 30 minutes to put it all back together. Beats $500+ at the dealer!

The problem is the ac resistor located on the passenger side of the center console. It's a little difficult to get to but not impossible. If i remember correctly it cost about 100.00$ from your BMW dealer. If you do a internet search for problems with BMW a/c you will find many post and fixes. BMW has made 3 revisions to this resistor over the past few years. If replacing this parts does not fix it then the only other cause will be the climate control module located in your climate control display. This is a very expensive part.Remove the plastic cover behind the glove box (passenger side) look toward the drivers side close to the bulkhead and it will be there, disconnect the plug, release the clip and pull back gentally (don't break the clips!) it's pretty easy.

My stereo is going mute but I can change channel and everything and no one have ever heard about it! What can it be?

Guys, I got the blower fixed of my BMW 520i. It was the resistor. The part cost me £50 and labour was charged at £45 (for half an hours work). The guy at the garage told me that it was a common problem with the BMW cars. Please do not go to a dealer. They said that it will cost me between £80-£160 for just diagnosis of the problem. So I would advise, please go to a garage (specialising in BMW reparis) and talk to them about the resistor. In that way they cannot mess around with you by giving stories as to how complicated the problem is and that how long it will take.
