You may just want to replace the cluster. The back of the cluster is actually a circuit board, so replacing it, even with a salvage yard cluster, will more than likely fix your issue. Not too hard to replace, either, as long as you are patient!!

The injectors have constant voltage to them with key on. It is a fused circuit. The computer internally grounds the injector ground wire to cause injector circuit on- to pulse the injector, and fuel is then sprayed out. It is a separate circuit from the pump circuit.

Hi Callie, as I don't know your vehicle as such, by rule of thumb there is a number of large fuses that are approx. 15mm square right next to the battery, they are in the same location as the relays, some push in but most in this block bolt in because they are such hi capacity, between 40 amp to 160 amp these supply power to the relays, actually everything in the car go through these fuses

The warning for the transmission program indicates an issue with the transmission. Usually it is due to mechanical problems, but sometimes it can be due to an electrical issue. I recommend having the vehicle scanned and diagnosed.

Michael Moore? Woot, I get to talk to a celebrity!

Sorry, couldn't help myself, falling over.
You add fluid through the dipstick tube. Use a small funnel. Don't overfill. Check level with engine at normal operating temperature, idling, in park, and on level surface.
Good luck.

Hi, what you feel is your anti-lock brake actuator pumping the brakes. This is probably due to dirty/dusty or improperly adjusted brake shoes causing the rear brakes to lock. It is also possible that you have a leak in one or both rear brake cylinders. Have your rear brakes checked, cleaned, and adjusted. If you would like to do it yourself, I can provide instructions--just let me know.

You will have to take that serial number to a BMW dealer. They may ask for proof of ownership.
If they want to charge you for looking this up, try another dealer, but the service writer should be able to look it up in about one minute given your serial number.

There are latches at the right and the left sides of the front of the rear seat, kneel down and look at the bottom of the rear seat and you will see the attachment, there is a latch that you have you move to lift the seat out of the clasp once one the left and then on the right,front of the seat lifts up and then pull forward to remove.

The front edge of the rear seat bottom will pop up when lifted. Pop up one side first, then the other side. Now you can just slide the seat bottom forward, and remove from the vehicle.


Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Headlights pulsate as well?
This generally means that the brushes in the alternator are worn out.
If you are handy with a soldering iron, and willing to hunt till you find brushes that fit, you can replace just the brushes for less than $5.
Or you can buy a new voltage regulator. It comes with the new brushes in it. It attaches to the back of your alternator with two screws. It costs $30 to $80 on line depending on which alternator you have.
