    Hi all,

    I have a 330d e46 tourer 2002. I have seen the heater under the bonnet and was interested in its operation and what it does.

    Can I program it to come on without car engine running so that I can warm up the car before I get in it?

    Thanks.

    Is yours the big webasto or a small unit with a silver top on it.

    Thanks for repl. It's the one next to the front n/s shock mount. It's got what looks like two round motors on top of it. It has a large red cable looking like it carries a lot of current.

    Can you post a picture?
    A webasto can be timed to come on much the same as trucks night heaters can.
    The e46 also has another water heater called a auxillary flow heater which is not capable of been timed
    and is commonly found in the 320d.

    I think it's just the aux heater. Don't think it can be timed to come on.
