20 Most Recent 2000 BMW 5 Series Questions & Answers

I know this is an old thread, but my 2006 325i Nav screen went bank also, but the radio still played. I noticed the glove box light and trunk light did not turn on also. I was told from mechanics is was probably a CID module for $2200, even though I mentioned the glove box and trunk light light were out and specifically inquired about a fuse. The mechanics never checked the fuses, because I checked my fuses in the glove box and found the fuse 61 marked with a BMW symbol that looks like light bulb was blown. The Nav screen started back up once the fuse was changed.

First, replace the radiator or expansion tank cap.
Also excessive steam and the smell of burnt anti-freeze are a sign of a blown head gasket, as is water in the crank case.

As you apply the brakes the rotar and the pads wear down and your flued level goes down also, if you keep going the pads will drop out and the rotar will also get thiner the pads will actually fall out and you will have no brakes at all, so it is advisable to replace the pads it will cost you less money in the long run.

Blue indicates a lot of engine oil is being burned, black would mean too much fuel, and white would mean excess water/coolant. Being as it's blue, it could be any one of a number of things, all internal in the engine. Could be bad oil rings, valve guides, stem seals, etc. I suggest an engine shop to properly determine the cause. Might just be a plugged pcv system that just needs cleaning, you never can tell from the outside. Is there a lot of oil in the air cleaner assembly? If with the engine running, you carefully remove the oil fill cap, is there a lot of pressure/gasses escaping? There shouldn't be.

Check the current draw when the car is switched off. if it is not obvious whet is staying on, remove fuses one buy one and see when the current draw goes down. Note that the car does not go to "sleep" until something like 16 minutes after you turn off the engine.
