Problem is this When sidelights and headlights are off the indicators work fine but the nearside (UK) sidelight flashes with the left...

    Basically I have bough a second hand BMW 5 Series(520d, 2005) from a garage and I've never had problems with it since.

    Hi there, I am trying to diagnose a potential gasket issue. It's a 4cyl, but this kind of symptom probably doesn't relate to a type of engine. Pardon the long story, but trying to include as much detail as possible. Car was very recently purchased. Coolant temp gauge is pegged high even when...

    Can anyone advise if this is a known issue. My 2019 X4 has an issue with the boot opening. At the traffic lights it opened when i braked and then shut itself automatically as soon as i got out of the car to shut the boot? The key fob was lying in a bag so wasn't touched at the time and there...

    Hi All I have a 2003 320d Touring , done 145k miles (12k of which I've done in the past year) The only issue I have with it is the idle; it idles at 720rpm (according to CAN reader) there is a fair bit of vibration - tickle it up to 900rpm and its smooth. If I look at the engine whilst its...

    Hi Everyone, I have a brand new G20 320d, amazing car, just one issue, went to Tesco last week to refuel and everytime I pull the trigger handle on the hose all the way it cuts out, I can hold it a tiny way in but it took 5 minutes to put £10 worth of diesel in, the woman at the kiosk was...

    Hi All, I have a 2016 X6M and recently have an issue with the sat nav. The system seems to think I’m 20 miles from where the car is located. I have spoken to BMW who have said the car needs to go into their garage to be checked (can’t fit me in for a month) or they gave me a technical help desk...

    Hello all, new to the forum hence posting here. I have a 2014 F11 with 70k and I've been having issues with the rear suspension for about 4/5 months now with no warnings on the idrive. It first started, when I would leave the house in the morning and the back end would be dropped, only to...

    Hi Guys My F11 520d is intermittently displaying a warning that the passenger door is ajar, but is in fact soundly closed. Has anyone experienced this at all? The real bugbear is the interior light remains on and if not switched off will kill the battery. The door locks fine with both the...

    Hi guys, I've been researching for the last few weeks about a problem I'm having with my 330d. With the old MAF plugged in I was getting random losses of power both when taking off and at cruise speed, the power loss comes on instantly and seems to fix itself only once the revs get up above the...
