    Hey guys, Last night I took an hour drive to the coast, and left my E46 on the top deck of the car park for 4 hours, the rain was very heavy all day and 15 minutes into my journey home I heard a distinctive sound. The sound doesn’t occur all the time, it tends to happens randomly and only...

    Hi all, I'm new here and this is my first BMW! :D Picked the car yesterday, 2016 330e, and I don't think the rain sensor is working properly. If I turn it on, it doesn't seem to stop when it's not raining anymore and it seems to go always at the same speed, no matter how much it rains. Looking...

    Hi, I have an F30 320i xDrive Touring MY 2013 on which the interior lights (map reading lights etc.) stopped working. Using Carly, I read out the error codes which indicated the following faults: - Fault: Implausible from the rain light sensor signal - Code: 8041BF - Fault: No communication...

    Car - 1997 Z3 1.9 After a long rainy day, I came back to my car to see the passenger footwell soaking, with the water seemingly coming from the foot well air duct, or adjacent to it. As I also recently had steam coming through the air vents after running the car for a while, I believe water is...

    My daughter has a 2013 1 series which everytime it rains she will be driving and the car will slow itself down in some cases quite dramatically. Does anyone have any thoughts why this is happening.

    OK, I'm sure this has been done to death but i've tried using Rain-X and it doesn't work. I still can't see out the back. Anyone got any ideas? It's one of only 2 things that annoys me about the car (the other is non-sync of the aircon temperatures).

    Hi everyone, New around here. I just got a 2009 E91 320D which I am enjoying, mostly. I have a couple of questions if you can help a bit. First, as the title suggests, is to do with the rain sensors. The sensitivity of the intermittent (auto) setting is pretty poor which means that I either...

    Hello I have a 2007 BMW 525D MSport (E60?). Since I got the car, rain sensor for the wipers does not seem to work. Switch comes on but wipers are not activated when it is raining. Manual function is working with wipers. The casing around the censor is missing from day one so that tells me some...

    Hi there, Well, I have done something stupid and couldn't find a proper answer by googling, so here I am. What happened is that my wipers, when on automatic mode (rain sensor) were not working much to my liking, sometimes they would wipe too slow, sometimes too fast. So, the sensor WAS...

    Had the dreaded rain sensor issue where the adhesive holding the sensor optics to the windscreen degrades over time, this causes bubbles to form which prevents the rain sensor from working. This was a pain because i had no intermittent wipers and even when the sensor was unplugged, as some have...

    Hi all, My car is now 5 months old and the rain sensor doesn't work reliably well. If the car is at slow speeds, and I have the wipers set to intermittent the sensor overrides manual, meaning the wipers don't go on when I need them to. Likewise it doesn't work at high speeds with very light...

    Autoscreens came out and replaced my windscreen a week or so ago, and today was the first day I drove in the rain since then, and I found my rain sensor isn't working at all :( It was definitely working before. Searched forums and apparently this is common as they need to reset it somehow to...

    Hi guys Car is 2005 E90 320D saloon. No sunroof! Originally I thought that water in this footwell had been from one night where it rained and the door wasn't perfectly shut but it's not the case as it'd dragged on now despite that I've dried it really well with a dehumidifier several times...

    On start up the car's headlights adjust up and down automatically and then settle in the correct position. During use in the dry the adaptive headlights level correctly in both dipped and full beam. However when it is raining the headlights raise up to a fixed position to dazzle on coming...
