Yellow brake light went on about 3 months ago
I've had lots of problems with components of the convertible top system failing, beginning around 70,000 miles. Mostly electrical/computer problems, but also some seals. The repairs have been very expensive. Has anyone else had such problems?
Both power lock and Hazard flasher buttons do not work when pushed. Fuses are good. Doors lock work with key remote only. Is it coincidental that both buttons do not work? Do both switches go to the Locking System Central Control Module Unit? I located it behind the glove box.

I am having a problem with my alarm on the key, it won't work. Sometimes the passenger door wont unlock when i put the key in the door (now I have to manually lock/unlock my doors) i notice sometimes the alarm activates and doors lock w/my key but it's more seldom now. Any thoughts?
How much to replace front bushings?
I am having a problem with my driver side power lock on this car. It will not UNLOCK using the interior switch or the key pad. When I press either one of the buttons the UNLOCK NOISE occurs but the lock remains in the locked position. I can manually unlock it by inserting the key into outside key hole or by pulling the handle. The mechanism will LOCK when I press the master LOCK button on the key pad.
So this is weird to me in two ways: 1. It makes the noise to unlock (sounds like it should be working) but does not 2. The locking portions still works.
I am not sure if this is a broken part or electrical short/problem or possibly a programming issue. (These cars have way too many "custom" settings.) I hope it is not a difficult fix. I do have an extended warranty that will cover it but I would like to avoid the deductible.
I hope this problem is described clearly. Please contact me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org if you need more information.
Thank you for all your help in advance.

I just bought a convertable 325ci, on the way home from picking it up, it died on the highway. We had it towed to the nearest BMW dealer. They diagnosed it with a bad battery and alternator. Car only has 11K miles on it. I was quite upset since I had just purchased it.
Anyone else report this problem?

I just had my crankcase ventilation system replaced (e.g., hoses, valves, etc) on my 2004 325Ci (BMW) as it was getting a "lean" code. However, my car still shakes periodically when I drive it at either lower or higher speeds. What could this be about?

I have a 04 325Ci sportpackage. When going down the road with the window open I hear a clicking noise on the passenger side. With the windows up you can't hear it. No grinding or other sounds, just the click click click as I go down the road. I have temped the wheel bearing area and its not hot. My differential is hot, but how hot is to hot? I have felt everything under the car and cant feel nothing loose either. Any Ideas would be much appreciated
while in idle there is a knocking or ticking sound
My car has been parked since 10-09 due to all of my brake light sensors were on in the dashboard. I towed it to dealer and they said i need a new batt and alternator and another 4,500.00 worth of repairs. The only problem that I had was the brakes. They claimed my car have leaks all over but I never had any leaks. I dont know what to do besides tow it back home to sit some more
My dashboard background light stays lit when i turn the car off.
When I push on the brakes I get a pulsing feeling in the brake pedal.
