You will figure out the heater pretty quickly. If, however, you determine that the problem is not you, but rather is that the heater control does not work properly, (which I suspect is the case) this might help.

You will feel pretty smart if the previous owner sold this car because he did not want to spend the money to replace the climate control, and you fix it for $1.

Locate fuse for fan for bmw 318se 1999


The fuse must be in the main fuse box. The position of the fuses is normally marked on the inside of the fuse box cover and also in the owner's handbook. If you don't come right with these, work your way through the fuses looking for a blown one. To lessen your search the fan fuse (Heater)should be between 25 to 30 amps.

I have a 96 BMW. The heater works only when the car is running. What can be the problem??


the heater WILL only work when the engine is running as this is the only time the water pump is circulating hot water through the heater matrix.

I have bmw 318ci and the hot air is not working, the heater is blowing and set to max heat but only blowing cold air, i have checked the fuse box, any ideas??


The heater operates from the hot water from the engine cooling system flowing through the heater radiator which is inside the air ducts under the dash. I suspect that the control wire/cable that goes from the heater control lever has broken or become disconnected from the heater tap that controls the volume of hot water through the heater radiator. Some times there is also a flap in the air ducts that is operated by the heater lever tha varies the amount of air that is heated. The tap may be in the engine bay or tucked in behind the air ducting.

Radio is not working, but is asking for a code. I


This code is pre-set by the factory, check your owners manual, it should give you the factor code before it has been set by the owner, if some one has set it to a costum code, you will need to take it to a dealer to have it reset. Most dealerships will do this for free so do a little research first!

BMW 523 Auto gerbox when cold change from 1 to 2 gear is hard


hello there

The problem is with the gear oil. To keep ahead of the rest BMW started what they call life time oil for their gear boxes, though that sounds great it doesn't really work in reality, they have now gone back to recommending a gear oil change every 60k miles.

In short you need to change your gear oil and soon, the oil in your gear box is no longer effective and will damage the gear box. You'll need about 5 litres for your car and costs around £15 a litre, expensive stuff!! I had the same problem with my 328i auto, the dealer was clueless and kept quoting the lifetime oil, I changed the oil and the problem has gone and it's so much smoother.

Hope this helps, please don't forget to rate me.
