  2. Hello fellow Bimmer fans

    I recently returned back to being the owner of yet another BMW. After a few years of testing the water with other various other car makes I’m now back behind the wheel of a 2009 635d. I love it and it’s brought back all the great memories I had from my previous BM’s. I have a few subtle ideas...

  5. Hi BMW fans

    Hi. New to this forum, but a long term BMW owner - about 30 years now. My daily now is a 98 528i se touring which was optioned to the hilt when it was bought. I'm slowly getting it back to good order. I've also got an 81 318is Baur. It started out as a 320A, but got some gentle mods, like the...

    BMW 6 Series - Tech Talk E24,E63,E64,F12,F13
    The fans in my e63 are up and down all the time. From a bit of googling Im pretty sure its the final stage resistor. However I am unable to find how difficult or where it is located on a 6 series. An help? Thanks, Chris
  8. 2001 320i - Interior Fans Resonate

    BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E46
    If I start the car up, the interior dash fans spin up, but the speed jumps up and down very quickly, the speed isn't steady. If I turn the engine off but leave the key half turned to keep electronics on, the fans spin like normal. Only when the engine is running do the fans speed fluctiate. Once...
  9. 2008 e90 Climate Controls dead (i.e. cannot turn on any fans or AC, no lights, nothing)

    Auto Electrical Forum
    I've had a few electrical problems with the car since getting in. Normally a warning light on the dash and centre around the head lights. Today a new one.... All the Controls for the Air Con and fans are dead. No lights, nothing. I've had a look at the fuse box and it looks like there is some...
  10. Hello BMW fans

    Good evening, Morning or Afternoon (depends on when you read this I guess) I thought it was about time to not just search the forums for info, guidance, ect and try to get involved a bit. I'll be starting that with a puzzle I'm having with my E36 auto. Anyway I shall look for the right place...

    Hello one and all! I am a very long term and obsessed BMW man. My personal steed is an E46 330i SE in Sapphire Black with Beige leather. It's a manual' and has clicked through 109k miles. I'm very privileged to get a good selection of BMW company cars, so I'm considering a track day project...
  12. Fans dropping out

    BMW 3 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 3 Series
    I've noticed in the last week or so that my interior fans drop out very briefly every now and then on my 08 E90. It's a very brief thing but I'm concerned that it will get worse if left. Anyone had this on their car?
  13. Fans up and down

    BMW 6 Series - Tech Talk E24,E63,E64,F12,F13
    The fans have been very irratic today in my 630Ci. They just pick a speed they fancy all the time. Also they now wont go to full power. Is there a final stage resistor on these cars like the one that failed on my e46 years ago? Also is there a guide as to how to get at it? Thanks, Chris
  14. Help needed after FSR replacement - fans running when engine off - old unit now works!

    BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E46
    What a nightmare! Fans packed up completely about two weeks ago. They went from working to nothing, although the car had been off the road a couple of months whilst I got around to replacing the PAS pump. So after a bit of research I decided that it was probably the FSR at fault. So what a pig...

  16. 2004 530d e60 heater blower fans only operate after 10 mins!

    BMW 5 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 5 Series
    Hi all For the past 3 days my heater blowers don't work until after about 10-15 min or sooner if I drive over a bump. So obviously it's not the fuse otherwise it just wouldn't work at all. From what I can gather from reading up, its the FSR final stage resistor or 'hedgehog' as it's commonly...

    BMW 3 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 3 Series
    Hi all, First post here, and hoping someone will be able to help! I made the mistake of intalling an awful aftermarket sat nav this week in my e93. I subsequently took it out and replaced the factory unit. Unfortunately since then my climate control isnt working correctly, it comes on, and...

    Hereford BMW - Bimmerforums Shop
    Hi There, Firstly I need a pusher fan as mine has seized and it doesn’t turn. Secondly I need a viscous fan as the bearings in mine have gone and it sounds like a bag of nails in a washing machine (I can also tilt it with my hands so it must be past it). My question is, are these parts...
  20. 2001 E46 316Ti Compact - Interior fans not working apart from on setting 4?!

    BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E46
    So this just happened the other day. So far search results have only produced problems when the fans stop working altogether... However, the fan still blows on max (setting 4) But on 0, 1, 2 and 3 NOTHING! Any ideas? FYI: Hot and cold still works, Recirc still works. This is a base spec -...
