Have your battery load tested. Your battery needs to have adequate voltage to run all computer/comp stuff. If it is weak it will run down overnight.

2005 Ford Expedition battery drains over night. I pulled fuses and found out that it's #30 fuse, with a little 25 on it. I looked it up and that fuse controls the PCM(4x4 transfer case clutch) and the Air...

You can narrow it down a bit more by unplugging the transfer case motor. See if it drains. But I haven't seen these cause a drain before. I suspect the air module. As all modules can short out and cause a drain. Could be the PCM also. But I haven't seen modules drain a battery over night. You might also check or have checked the battery. It could also be dieing.

BMW 2002 X5 Battery Drain

I am having the same problem with my 2002 X5. There is a motor or fan running behind the AC control panel on the dash and if I pull fuse 48 it stops and the battery doesn't drain. Still looking for the cause and solution so that I don't have to keep pulling and installin fuse 48. BMW garage suggested that it was the Final Stage Blower Resistor. I replaced this and no change. I hope someone has an answer that will help us both.

2005 bmw x5 SAV won't start

Check the battery to see if it is drained (recharge if necessary). If this doesn't remedy the issue, try checking the fuel filter or filter lines to see if they are blocked.

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).

    Own a 2005 BMW M3, car battery draining -battery less than year.

    From what you're saying here, I believe that you simply have a bad battery. Most batteries only last 5 years, much less if they're left to sit in storage periodically. You really should charge the battery overnight and do a load test on it the next day. The person(s) you spoke to at BMW were probably sales staff and not actual technicians. Costco has very good batteries at reasonable prices.

    BMW X5 - 2005

    Hi kuldipdhanja this sounds like it could be an internal fault with the video module or the sat nav drive, you could try discontecting the battery negative lead for 15 minutes to reset the control units, you will have to remove the spare wheel and unfasten the air compressor bracket to get to the battery, this fix may only be temporary but it is alot cheaper than replacing parts. regards mark.

    Battery drained completely BMW E90 2005 model

    Connect your old battery with another battery from another car (WHILE KEEPING ALL CABLES CONNECTED ON BOTH CARS) just user a bridge cable otherwise you'll need. a code to reactivate your BMW again. Try now to start your BMW engine. Now go to the nearest battery dealer to change the battery WHILE KEEPING YOUR ENGINE ON, otherwise you'll need a code to activate your BMW again :)

    Good Luck!
