2003 BMW 325i Q&A

2003 BMW 325i Question: HVAC Controller

My BMW needs a new HVAC controller. My mechanic said it's a $4,000 part from BMW. Has anyone else had this problem? Is there a cheaper way to go? Thanks -

Hey, give these guys a look, they list a repair for 3-series climate control modules. http://bit.ly/8z7rcm Look around too, there are several sites online that offer rebuilding of electronic components. Have a good description of the symptoms you have so they will know if their repairs address your issue. -

Ive experienced it before, and went to the junk yard and got mine, and had some guys put it in. -
Answer 2
Some companies remanufacture or repair the contollers perhaps contact these people http://www.bba-reman.com/catalogue/Index.aspx?category=3 or closer to home maybe theses people would have a suggestion Fuel Injection Corporation, 2407 Research Drive Livermore, CA 94550, Phone: 925-371-6551 They do a lot of re-manufactured computers for fuel injection and ignition, they may know someone that may repair your controller. After that I would say look at BMW specific forums and see what other BMW owners have to say. The price seems ridicules. -
