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.

      BMW X5 Xdrive 35i N55 E70 with 75,000 miles. Car overheated, drove it home after engine cooled down. Ran ista+ on it and have no fault codes for electric water pump. I tried the self bleed system but it does not work. I do not see or hear water pump working. When I run the engine idle 15 minutes later temperature goes up to 240 degrees, the high fan kicks on and does not bring the temperature down. I shut off the engine to cool it down. The cooling fan works with the a/c on. But when I put the heat on full blast I am getting cool to warn air blowing and the electric fan never kicks on. I disconnected the cooling temperature switch for a minute and the high speed cooling fan kicked on. I plugged it back. Everything else works fine, engine idles at steady 700rpm. So my question is, should there be fault codes for electric water pump.

      Thanks!

      I have a BMW 218i which has a wiring problem, its 5 years. A BMW garage want £1000 for 6 hours to find out what the problem is.

      They can not say it will fix the problem and can not say how much it will be to fix the problem.

      They are offering me £5,500 as its faulty and its worth £8,000, What do I do? I need help asap!!

      2004 330ci 149,000 miles, auto transmission

      Changed battery installing Champion h7.

      Upon connecting the battery all 3 break lights lit up and stay on.

      Without the key in the ignition all power is active, meaning the, wipers, the windows, the ac etc will operate. The dash board Also stays illuminated. I have read many posts on checking the voltage and fuses etc but nothing is clear for all power still being live without the key in the ignition, the car starts and drives fine. It’s when you turn it off that it seems to be possessed. I’ve detached the neg terminal on the battery so it doesn’t get drained. Doing this has me fearful that I’m going to fry something every time I have to reconnect the terminal due to the surge of power. Any advice will be greatly appreciated.

      I have a 2007 BMW 750i and like Rob Reese post 7 months ago, when 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.

      I also lose all computer control which comes on and off at the same time and frequency.

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

      Hi, BMW 2005 540i E60 V8 despite getting the steering wheel lock message..

      I am experiencing the Ignition START/STOP button will not TURN OFF the engine.

      I eventually removed the black negative cable and engine did switch off after increasing the revs ( but would remain in idle if i did not switch off.

      The engine does START as normal with START/STOP button, but will not TURN OFF?

      Is this a fuse problem or total ignition switch. Your assistance would be helpful !

      My 2014 BMW F30 was throwing a P036 diagnostic code for downstream O2 sensor, so I replaced. P036 came back immediately. I checked voltage to sensor. Although 12 v. line active, the 5 v. wire was not giving power to the heating circuit. My mechanic suggested checking fuse and that's where I am. Apparently this fuse is one of 5 fuses in driver side engine compartment but I'm not sure exactly where. I see a vertical black box that looks the right side with a lot of wiring coming into side, with the box almost up against the edge of compartment on driver side. If that is it, I have no idea how to open it. Help.

      Car starts right up, but feels like it is missing and diesel it badly.

      Changed all coils and plugs. No change.

      Check engine, temp, tire pressure, bulb out warning lights are all on.The clock has to be reset every time we turn off ignition. The battery was just replaced and is fully charged.

      Plugged in a Bluetooth obd2 scanner. It says it is not connected to a vehicle.

      Have disconnected battery and reconnected.

      I have a 2013 BMW X5. In wet and/or rainy weather I get the message, ' Electrical System Malfunction". The dinging starts and the dash lights go off repeatedly. This does not happen when it's dry out. I've read that it may be related to moisture or water entering through vents for the sunroof. How do I locate those vents and what do I do to effect a positive result? Help! Thanks.

      When I press the button it keeps saying "Transmission Malfunction" I just replaced the car battery a couple months ago so I doubt that the problem as well I replaced the fob batteries thinking that might be the problem yesterday.

      Has anyone ever heard of this happening? It for a couple days before today acted like it didn't want to start and now all of this is happening.

      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.

      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?

      Hello, I mis-posted about the headlights not working. It seems it's only the power windows and audio from the stereo. All lights work as do the power seats. I only have the ignition and door ket until I can get a master from the dealer.

      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.

      Hi I have a 1996 e39 528i bmw and I have electrical problem. (1) my ac display light is blinking on and off constantly. (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!!!

      I have a 2013 X5 SAV the front passenger door lock will not open. The door lock button will not release (pop up). The door unlock button the dash will not unlock it, using the tech pkg "unlock all doors" will not unlock it. The key is only for the drivers side but it does not reset the lock. The door will not open manually from the inside or if you pull up the knob it will not stay up. The BMW dealership said they would have to damage the door panel so I left

      Our 2015 BMW X5 hasn’t had any trouble at all yet. Today the electric function to adjust the steering column stopped working. Do you think this could be caused by a fuse? Any tips?

      I have a 2103 BMW X3 that won't crank or start, in fact nothing electrical is working at all, door locks, rear hatch, nothing. The battery has 12.66 volts and the condition is present regardless of which key fob I'm holding. The red LED is flashing under the rear-view mirror every 2 seconds. Ideas?
