  2. 2016 X1 parking brake.

    BMW X Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of X Series
    I have just bought a 2016 X1. On pulling away from being stationary I have noticed a very slight groan when the electronic parking brake automatically disengages - is this normal? There is no noise when using the brake pedal or reversing from stationary. Am I just being concerned over nothing?
  3. Parking light failure - everything ok??

    BMW 5 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 5 Series
    Has anyone else had iDrive complain about parking light failure when everything is actually ok? It’s been doing it on and off for a while but recently is more and more adamant that my front left parking light is out. I’ve checked and rechecked everything and all is well, all bulbs are working...
  4. Parking Sensors - where to buy?

    BMW 5 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 5 Series
    One of the front PDC sensors on my E61 recently threw a wobbler and caused the system to throw a fault. I replaced it with a genuine used BMW part but, while it works and the fault no longer appears in iDrive, it constantly thinks there is an object 46cm from the bumper even when there’s nothing...

  7. Both front parking lights not working

    BMW 3 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 3 Series
    Hoping someone can shed some, ah-hem, "light" on this. Both front left AND front right parking lights are not working. I'm getting feedback from the IDrive system that it requires attention. All other lights working fine. I thought this would be an easy fix by replacing the bulbs. however...
  8. Front parking sensors problem

    Auto Electrical Forum
    So I bought a 2015 bmw 1 series. It came with the comfort pack so has rear parking sensors that are activated by putting the vehicle into reverse. I also have front sensors but I can't seem to work out how to activate them. I don't have a button either. Could the BMW dealer have removed...

  13. Replacement parking sensors. Genuine or not?

    BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E46
    Posted this in the general forum but got no bites so I'll try here. Is it worth spending the money on genuine BMW rear parking sensors or are the cheaper ebay ones ok? I only ask because there is a massive difference in price and a mate of mine paid a lot less than the cost of 1 genuine sensor...
  14. Parking sensors...

    General BMW Discussions
    It seems that the act of removing my rear bumper, along with disconnecting the parking sensors, and then refitting it has caused two of the rather knackered looking sensors to fail. Looking online there is a massive difference in price between genuine BMW and the alternatives? Are genuine BMW...
  15. Parking / Handbrake Spring ratchet

    BMW 5 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 5 Series
    Hi 525D E60 LCI. The handbrake wont pull up, or it does but ratchets straight back down. I understand there is a spring behind the press button that tensions the ratchet to stop this. Looking on ebay I can buy replacement handles with leather gaither but they do not have the button. Makes me...

    BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E46
    Hi all, Recently purchased my e46 and it's a joy to drive. When placing the car into reverse I heard a long continuous beep, which stopped after a few seconds. Did some research and diagnosed 2 faulty sensors. After replacing both sensors there is no longer the beep, so no error right? Well...

  18. Electronic parking brake issue

    BMW 5 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 5 Series
    Hi All, I've owned my 2012 GT 530d for 2 months now, very happy with it but twice in that time, the electronic parking brake has disengaged - a bit of an issue as my parking slot is a downwards slope.... Fortunately, the transmission brake held it on both occasions. When I unlocked the car...

    The parking sensors on my car have stopped working. I have unplugged all three wires from the pdc module and the reconnected the power cable and rear sensors only. Now I can hear all rear sensors clicking and presume they are all ok. I then unplugged the rears after powering off the pdc...

    BMW 1 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 1 Series
    Hi all, Yesterday i made the sad decision to sell my 6 series 650i as im fed up paying out £550 a year tax and a paltry 12MPG. I went for something completely different and chose a 120D M Sport (2014) which im really enjoying so far :) However, even though its a much smaller car than my 6...
