Question about 2001 BMW 325
The starter would'nt work but,would if tapped with something. So I replaced the starter... Now it starts most of the time except the heater fan and the electric windows won't work when the engine is running with the key in the run position. The inside electric only works if you remove the key and re insert it into the switch then turned to the second position. I would appreciate your assistance. thanks, Nick
Hi there. It sounds like the car has a short between the II and I position. Something like the ACC and START positions in domestic and imports. And it all happened when replacing the starter. These wires are touching chassis, or ground. Try removing and emplace it again, making sure the wires are not touching GND. If problem persists, then the problem might be in the switch, ergo, requiring further inspection of the electrical system, including the wiring. Also check the fuses and make sure they are not blown. If replaced and still blowing, is a critical shortage, and the risk of an electrical fire will become imminent. Let me know how things go. Good luck.
