Vent Hood Problem with hood light module constantly failing. Replaced one over the last year at a cost of 300.00. Please help as we are closely reaching the point of spending more than the hood is worth.

Why after driving my 2006 528i bmw say about 30 to 40 min when I turn the car off and try to start the car up again it will not start. but if I wait about an half hour the car starts right up


I believe the 5 series has the same IVM module.

2006 BMW 750i - IVM module - Replaced on 5th January, 2015
Car would no longer recognize remote starter key and I could not start the car. Lights on in dash, but no noise, no starting.

Inittially thought one of my remotes were no longer good, then thought maybe it was because I had my iphone too close to the key..... None of my initial diagnostics were right, it was the IVM module. I often waited 15 minutes, then it started; then finally one day it wouldn't start at all.
Apparently the Integrated Voltage Module (IVM) has a relay in it that fails over time. The car began intermittently not recognizing the Remote (key), then failed completely. Replaced the IVM module and the car started immediatly and has started everytime since replacement. Part cost $127.US + tax at BMW dealer or $80. on line. Pretty cheap for what it has (9 connectors, a printed circuit control board, several relays and multiple fuses). Easy to replace and it took 1/2 hour to replace and is located under passenger side cabin filter (under the hood) on the 750i - there are nine (9) connectors to remove and re-install on this module. Mine was an original part Manufactured on 21 January, 2005. Tools needed: one Allen wrench and a # 10 socket. See YouTube for video.
Apparently Dealer will replace for close to $500. You can do it yourself.

Hope this helps!

Whining humming noise under hood


If the engine is not reaching optimum operating temperature it will indeed give you a "check engine light",the code will lean you in that direction as well.The noise your hearing more than likely is coming from the "clutch fan",they are very common on the TrailBlazers to make noise and fail.The oil light... you certainly need to have the oil pressure checked with a mechanical gage.

The bulbs are very costly and they have a short life as is. Stop replacing and get a new unit. The repair is not worth the cost and a new unit has a warranty for at least a year.

I have constant steam coming from the inside of my am1300 dishwasher... not sure why as it doesn't normally especially with the hood up... is there a reset I can try... or any help assist please?


It sounds like the water inlet valve is partially opened. That can happen from sand, dirt, or minerals entering from the house water supply. If it fails to close, the valve needs to be replaced.

2007 gmc yukon has security light blinking and hood open warning indicator light on but hood is closed. have reset battery and security system will not shut off


The security light is a visual indication that something in the car's antitheft system is failing. In most GM cars and trucks there is a hidden system that most people are unaware even exists. From the moment you put your key in the ignition, there begins a constant line of communication between your key's security chip or transponder, to the ignition's lock cylinder, and then to the car's TDM. (Theft Deterrent Module) The TDM is what tells your computer that the correct key is being used and that it is "OK" to allow the vehicle to start and run. These 3 parts must be in CONSTANT communication. If the key is in the ignition, then these parts are sending important signals to each other. The security light illuminates when that signal gets broken, even just for a second. When the signal breaks, (normally due to a failing/broken part) the car goes into antitheft mode. The car misinterperates this and thinks its being stolen or hotwired because it is NOT getting that signal from YOUR specific key. There is where the security light turns on and shuts down your vehicle. So basically, if that light is on, your system has some sort of failing part. This can start as an intermittent "no start", to your vehicle not running for days at a time, to the vehicle NEVER starting again. The problem is electrical and computer based, so don't count on an easy reset button, or the problem fixing itself. The hard part is isolating which part is the problem. You can spend a thousand dollars through a mechanic very easily. I have had great luck with bypassing the entire system. This way the problem will never return. It actually CAN'T ever return because it is eliminated. This can also be done yourself at a much cheaper cost. Read through this link very carefully. You'll find alot of information and pictures, along with ways to help you fix this.

SECURITY AND TRACTION LIGHTS ON CAR WONT START


Several GM products, including the Chevrolet Impala and Malibu, the Oldsmobile Alero, the Pontiac Grand Prix, and Saturn Ion, have issues with the Security light coming on. This is many times an indication of a failing Body Control Module (BCM). Initially, the Security light will come on then go off, progressing to a constant on light, before the car will refuse to start. Other symptoms may include erratic action of electronics, a clicking sound coming from the glove box, and the air conditioning failing to blow cold air. I recommend a shop that specializes in the electronic systems of vehicles to diagnosis and make the necessary repairs. They should keep the car until they replicate the symptoms described. A new BCM from GM should cost about $230; plan on another $200 for them to diagnose the problem, replace the unit, and program the new unit. The dealers quote between $700 and $1,100 for the same repair. My experience and the experiences I have read on the internet, indicate the new BCM should last only about a year.

Battery keeps draining while car sits. Constantly having to recharge. Replaced battery twice in last year. NEED HELP !


Check to see if it's the light under the hood that stay's on when you close the hood. remove the light bulb and see if it still drains. The other places would be the light over the visor and light in the glove box. Other things would be a bad relay like the A/C relay to the compressor being stuck in the on position and A/C clutch engaged all the time. Start with the light's it may take a few days but better then going to the dealer and paying them to do the same thing for a few days and charging you for the service. Keep me posted, be glad to help out.

WE have replaced our ice maker in our Whirlpool refrigerator 4 times in the last 4 years. Our refrigerator obviously is a Whirlpool and the ice maker was ordered with the ice maker installed. WE are...


If the fill tube gets choked up with ice, (Figure S-4) it usually means that the water fill solenoid valve is leaking. The valve is not closing properly and is dribbling water. If the leakage is slow enough, water may freeze in the fill tube. Over time it will freeze the tube completely shut.
