If you are referring to the cooling fan, first check 5A FUSE 16 and 30A FUSE 41 in the front power distribution box. If the fuses are OK, the temperature switch, the pressure switch, the speed relay(s) or the auxiliary fan motor(s) could be at fault.

I rencently had the same problem. Lasted a week or two before it threw a code. Ended up just being a camshaft position sensor. Replaced sensor, now it runs like new. Just be careful with the crankcase breather hose, it's very brittle!

Hi Andrew:
Some brake systems have a double piston on the master cylinder. This is a safety feature that prevents total failure in the event that a component stops working.
I would recommend that you take it to a certified brake repair shop. Brake maintenance can be tricky, and if not done correctly can lead to nasty unwanted situations where your vehicle won't stop when you want it to.

Automatic tranny? Check the neutral safety switch that only allows you to turn engine on when car is in neutral. If that switch/relay is malfunctioning it could turn off the ignition when you put gearshift into gear.

Bare minimum:

a fan belt to the compressor,
a functioning clutch circuit and fuse,
a sealed system (no leaks) and
sufficient refrigerant charge to satisfy the pressure switch in the system.

Add the proper refrigerant to the low or suction side of the compressor with the engine running and A/C set to on. The compressor clutch will only engage after you have provided a specific minimal amount of refrigerant - but then will not do any real cooling until the amount of refrigerant for the system approaches the amount on the sticker that details the capacity of the system.

If you get cool air, you're off to a good start. If cooling drops or stops over the next day - you have a HUGE leak. If it takes a couple weeks to stop, you have a good size leak. If it lasts a season, you have a small leak. Ideally, the system should be sealed completely. You may also want to replace the accumulator filter/dryer if the system has been at atmosphere (no charge) for any real amount of time.

Be VERY careful with refrigerants. Skin exposed to the liquid or gas can be frozen instantly. It can also cause blindness if the eye is exposed to it, too. Nasty stuff. You've been warned.

All BMW's have spare fuses near or in the fuse box, so they are not in any circuit, only the ones in a row or two are actively protecting from shorts. If you are having a problem with a specific circuit all BMW's have fuse chart in cover of fuse boxes, whether under dash or in trunk area, so if you have a short, check the fuse for that circuit. There are too many fuses to guess at.

have a coolant system pressure test done and look for leaks at the welsh plugs, water pump hole under water pump, heater core inside

All BNW's have remote key openers built into key, so what doesn't work, the manual lock, or the remote key, or both. When you say you don't have keyless entry, on a BMW the remote is the key.
