How to Solve BMW Electrical Problems Easily

Updated on January 22, 2019

Stop Worrying, Anything Can Be Fixed!

Having car problems can be very stressful. Newer cars have increased comfort by incorporating more and more electrical parts (motors, wires...you name it). These parts, of course, will fail in time and it might seem like the end of the world. Don`t worry, it`s not!

First things to check:

Most electrical problems can be easily fixed by checking the following:

  • The fuse box
  • The wiring in the the trunk that is attached to the battery

The location of the fuse box on a BMW.
The location of the fuse box on a BMW.

Most BMWs have the fuse box located in the glove box compartment. Older BMWs have it in the trunk near the battery, so check both these locations.

Check for bad fuses by taking them out one by one.

A bad fuse is the most likely cause of electrical problems, so start with this step before taking your car apart trying to find the bad wire or contact point.

Test Your Car Battery

A discharged battery won't let you start your car in cold weather, but an extremely discharged battery won`t let you start your car even in warm weather.

Battery Voltage and State of Charge:

12.66v . . . . . . . . . . 100%
12.45v . . . . . . . . . . 75%
12.24v . . . . . . . . . . 50%
12.06v . . . . . . . . . . 25%
11.89v . . . . . . . . . . 0%

Many shops will test your car's battery for free. Please keep in mind that a discharged battery doesn't need replacing most of the time. The problem is that with short trips in the city traffic, your alternator won't be able to charge your battery enougg—it'll be just a matter of time until it starts causing problems.

BMW Steering Wheel Lock (ELV)

The "steering wheel lock" error pops up when the battery is low and usually in cold weather. The bad thing is that after this error pops up you will have a limited number of times to start your car, after which the Start button will be useless. It's not a problem with the steering wheel column, but due to the fact that the mechanism doesn't go all the way back (low battery), it will store that error which cannot be reset from the dashboard.

FIX: Get yourself a BMW K+DCAN cable and diagnostic software to reset your ELV lock.

The software suite and much more info on coding your BMW can be found online.

By running that simple job your car will be fixed!

You will have your own diagnostic and coding tools to work with and you won`t have to pay a dime at the stealership!

If you run into any electrical problems you can leave a comment and I will gladly help you and add the problem to the list so that other people can learn how to fix them. If you like to DIY, you can save a lot of money and most BMW problems can be fixed easily with the right tools and software.

      Dashboard on my 2015 640i is blank. This is the digital dashboard showing speed & revs. Car starts and runs fine, other dashboard functions eg signals, fuel, temp working fine. It's a bit like old tv channel signal when you're not quite on the right channel - you can see vague lines when you change the transmission setting (which also changes the dashboard format) but nothing happening. Car has sat for a few weeks so thought might be battery but have driven it for a while and it behaves fine.

      Hi, i was recently checking my fuses for my air con and pulled a few out and replaced in exact same spot, however now my ccc screen doesn't work (the radio still does) and there was a few other problems. My question is should i have disconnected the battery before pulling out fuses? I have a bmw x6 2008 I cant even set the time anymore.

      Please does anyone know,

      Thankyou.

      I have 2005 bmw 330ci. It had been sitting for about six months. So I charged up the battery and it worked great took it for a drive everything worked. The next day I came out remote didn’t work, so unlock the doors start it windows didn’t work on either side and in the back. The lock button in the car didn’t work, wipers wouldn’t work. But everything else seems to work fine. So I changed all fuses, checked wiring where I can easily see in the trunk, doors, removed glove box and checked their to. Need help please.

      I have a 2005 BMW 745li and everytime I listen to my radio or cd player, periodically (about every 3 - 5 minutes) I hear a single short spark sound from my speakers and then my sound goes out for about 10 to 20 seconds and then my sound returns.

      Does anyone know what this problem is and how I can go about fixing it?

      I just bought a 1998 Z3 Roadster with the 1.9. The power windows headlights won't work and there's no audio coming from the aftermarket stereo receiver. I am told there was a new "Body Control Module" installed but was not programmed. Interior lights work as do blinkers. Before I dig into the fuse box, I thought I would ask about this coding issue. I'm New to BMW's.

(2) when I try to lock the doors the actuators make noise but none of the door locks non goes down I have to manually lock the driver door with the key only the gas tank will lock.(3) the dash display light will come on sometimes then another time it just blink and go out blank. And when that happen none of the gauges work. The car will start most time but some times u turn the key u get nothing and sometimes the car start and it idling quit fine are drive and it just shut off. A technician once told my wife that he has to buy a ralay under where the key switch is connect to stable the current going to the starter so that it will start good but I’m here now and yes it will start most times but still will have the problems that I listed and I feel like removing that relay so please if u can help me with this request

      Got a 2007 525xi with 143,000 mi.

      Everything seems perfect, no lights on but after like 45-60 minutes the xDrive shuts off and it goes to rear wheel drive on its own.

      1- What is it/causes this?

      2- How serious is it?

      3- What am I looking at $ wise in repairs?

      4- Should I just sell it as is and walk away?

      Thanks for your input!!!

Now that the battery is charged, like before, radio is back and all is working. New development - sometimes when I turn off the radio my clock turns off. The folks that installed aux say it cannot be something they did.... is this an issue with 2003 BMW 530i's?

      I have an 08 bmw 335xi coupe. I have this issue where it will not start but if i wait a few hours and try again it will or if i connect it to my jump box it will start right up. I have a brand new registered and coded battery. Some side issues im sure are related to this are i will get sparks on my ground terminal when connecting jumper cable to it like a positive terminal. And my comfort access does not work in the door handles at all and the car will only let me start it without kwy in ignition if i start it up first with the key in ignition then shut it off take it out and start it back up with it out. I have tried so much. Im leaning towards a voltage regulator or cas module but i am not sure. Let me know if you have any idea thanks!

      I had a bump to my rear bumper where one of the sensors came a little lose, this work correctly some time or all rang out if it wasn’t positioned correctly, after a month my whole system just stopped working.

      Ie. There is no control from the parking assist button (no light) and no response from the front and rear sensors when in reverse?

      I have checked and changed the fuses but still no luck.. could the PDU unit sensed that i had a issue and isolated the system??

      I’v been pulling my hair out about this for a while but don’t wanna have to go to pay to dolla to fix it if i can do this my self

      2004bmw 118d. various indicator lights light up randomly. sometimes the odometer will bounce around wildly between 0 and 2000. while perf0rmance does not seem to be effected, it can be qite unnerving to be driving 130 k and see your ABS, DTC,steeering lock,tire pressure light and or oil lamp com on. Stoping the car and restarting it temporarily fixes the problem. one other thing if i have the radio on when i have the problem it will sound like i am being peted with hail

      Hello, recently acquired a 2006 325i base. I found a blown 20A fuse in the glovebox and need to figure out where it goes. Everything electrical works as it should but I do have three warning lights I can't clear. Seatbelt, SRS and Brake. I replaced the pads and both brake wear sensors. I ran a code check and the codes showed seatbelt tensioner and seat cushion sensor passenger side. I'm hoping that replacing this fuse will cure some of the warning lights. How can I figure out where this fuse goes ? I can take a picture of the fusebox if that will help. Thanks in advance, Paul

      Hello

      I have a BMW525d e61 2005. The electricity has gone totally, then I have replaced a new battery, because there was some problems with the battery before. Now it does not start, the display does not turn on , but the radio works. And the lamp beside the hand gear does not turn on.

      I have checked all fueses and there was no problem with those. I understood that when I connect the four base relay in feud box (relay number 6136-6901469) with my hand, the car starts but ABS error appears and the roll does not work easily and the speedometer does not work and display does not turn on , but radio and CD works.

      What do you think the problem is???

      Is that possible the problem caused by MPM 6135-6939655-01 HELBAKO????

      Hi there,

      I have BMW E91 2007 318d. I have a problem with battery drain by a/c blower heater, it some how starts working even the engine is off and car is locked. After reading many forums I have changed the final stage unit for the heater. Everything seemed fine but after unlocking the car the heater started working without any suggestion.

      I would thank for any advice.

      So i just bought an 2011 bmw 328i. It worked fine for a few days. Then began making a noise under hood. Then all the sudden the power steering began to get stiff the air conditioning blower went out the windows won't roll down the door lock inside won't work. Found out the serventine belt came off so we replaced belt. We had a low battery we also had replaced as well as rotors. The same day after leaving shop. . The noise started again under hood. Sounds like it’s cominf from power steering area. Then interior lights won’t work. The windows won’t roll down. The sunroof will not close. The blinkers have not worked since we got it back. The ac just went out now as well. Fog lights won’t work i. And it's stuck like that. And now it won't come back on. Replaced every fuse in the fuse box all are good. We were told something about programming battery to car computer but tried doing that and got lock out of trunk with battery unhooked. We got back in and reconnected and still nothing Any ideas

      I was driving my 2012 BMW F25 X3 and with out any warning my battery was discharging quickly. Idiot lights where coming up, stability control, and, steering, adaptive headlights, you name it it was on. Before I knew it my electric power steering was out my electric cooling fans no longer worked. And then limp mode. I let it sit for a couple of hours, and managed to get it home. My battery was replaced last year, however it was reading 11 volts. I’m charging it now. I’m not sure if it’s the negative battery cable with the sensor causing the problems, or if it is just a week or bad alternator. It was really hot out by the way when all of this happened. About 97 degrees out.

      My 320 2007 face-lift model. Is only running on half engine power according to my display panel. Could it be the battery not charging properly. It only happened last night. It once happened to my X5 auto and everything shut down that was the battery on that occasion. Thank you.
