2011 BMW 3 Series - Answered Questions & Fixed issues


In this corner of Canada:
- Lordco are excellent.
- Canadian Tire also carries a really good selection and warranty.
- I used to be a Craftsman fan but the lifetime warranty has been dropped by Sears and tools are now only sold in sets. Also, used to be high quality (Made in USA) and are now made in China.
Definitely a Zero out of Ten.

Hi
Air flow sensor could be a problem.
Every time EML comes on the car computer will put the system into limp mode. To avoid any further damage to the engine.

once switch off, isolated and re-start will re-run the program and clear it temporary.
Ideally you need to get the car plugged in to a Diagnostic computer and see what fault code are stored.

Thanks

Fist get an owners manual. It will have most of the lights ID'd. Also Haynes manuals are pretty good. You can download them online at Haynes.com . The gold standard is the manual by Bently publishers. I found it helps to have both the Haynes and the Bentley manuals.

Sounds like your battery is weak. BMW's don behave like other cars when the battery is weak. The BMW will prevent the starter from engaging, but leaves power to the interior.

Check if happening at specific settings on the fan. Fans use resisters to slow down their speed. Typically the lowest setting will mess up before the highest. If coming a going means you change the speed and it goes away.

If it doesn't matter what speed, there is probably something in your vents. Do you park outside? Mice love getting into warm cars on cold nights, and build nests... a nice comfy place can be in vents...

Or have very small kids... mine used to love putting things in the vents and have them disappear! Could be cherios

P0700 is an informational code only. It doesn't point to a direct fault in the engine, only a general fault in the transmission.

You have to reach your hand in under the center of the hood, then feel for a small handle and lift up on it. Then hold the handle up while lifting the hood at the same time.

Yes. But most likely its just a broken fan motor.

Check your backing plate or called shield on rotor on that side. Possibly, its bent and rubbing the rotor. This could happen during brake work.
