Leaking oil cooler gaskets are a common problem that affects most BMW engines made in the last 20 years. This happens as gaskets become hard and brittle with time, which makes them unable to seal properly.
Most BMW cars come with an iDrive system, which offers a wide range of functions. In addition to the usual stereo and media players, there is satellite navigation, Internet connectivity, and smartphone mirroring.
A common problem with BMW radio especially on E60 and E61 chassis in the CCC or CIC failing. The iDrive screen stays black or keeps restarting. In many cases, the problem is four chips on the main board.
Overheated and burnt small hole in leather cover... Where is the temp sensor for the heated steering wheel on this vehicle? Is this the most likely cause of the problem?
Any help would be appreciated.... Thanks
Our 2006 BMW 650I heated steering wheel overheated burning a small hole in the leather wrap, quickly turned off at the switch. I assume there is a temp sensor unit somewhere that should have controlled this but I guess it has failed … where and what it is I can't locate, I need some help or suggestions please..
Hi Everybody well the dumb blonde syndrome has once again become an issue. I hooked up my battery backward after what i have found out was a parasitic draw due to a light that was always on anyway when i hooked it up wrong it did spark before i attached and then nothing. I turned the key and nothing again . no clicking no fuel pump just dead. Heres where I think after checking all of the fuses the modules and so forth . The airbag light has been on for some time and i now know it cuts all the power to the engine.

Greetings, I have two issues:
1. My idrive doesn't work, it turns on then freeze, then off again, what could be wrong?
2. When I start the car, there is a cluck noise as if the starter wants to turn but nothing happens. I now switch it on and go direct to the starter with the screwdriver and it will start. I have checked all fuses and relays.
