Mechanic tried to reprogram it to the car said module would not let him reset the code.Any way to unlock the module so it can be coded the the car?
It just started. Hoses and belts seem to be ok
My Z4 has been hesitating upon start and then makes a grinding noise as it starts. This lasts just a few seconds, no more than 10. It doesn't do it every time, seems to happen only in he mornings but later in the day when I start it again it seems fine. Had the battery checked and the alternator both checked out. Took it to a shop but since they can't hear the problem as I already started it they don't know and say it's starts fine, which it does sometimes.
. . .light up continuously. The manual says it has something to do with the Dynamic Stability control on the car. Has anyone experienced this and what could be causing this? Also what kind of repair charges can I be looking at. It came on before but went out. It came on again about 40 miles later. Does not seem to impact the ride or braking but I just purchased the car so still getting familiar with the ride.
I just had a 4 wheel alignment. I believe there may be an issue with the steering column or electric power steering
Drove fine to work, went out for lunch noticed battery light first and then all of a sudden my temperature gauge went into the red zone and a red light came on. Checked the coolant, it was low. so I added some coolant and car seemed happy for the few minutes the warning lights went off. Then back on they went. I pulled over and had it towed... I have replaced the reservoir tank already, so it shouldn't be a radiator issue. I just most recently had some ca-smog things replaced. Wondering how much money to fix this time and/or is it time to give up?
A long nail runined my tire so I put one on to replace it on the passenger rear side. Do I need to replace the other back tire?
cranks but wont start
Have 150K miles on it and just replaced, radiator, ball joints, arms, front brakes, new tires, battery, and front end alignment. This happens between second and third gear on my automatic transmission (25 to 40 mph). It seems to spin, then catch, and accelarate, the RPMs jump up and down when this happens. Any advise? Computer can't find anything wrong,,,,mechanic wants to replace shocks due to leaking but don't think this is my issue for this problem,,,thanks!
car sways a little to on rough surfaces
what does that indicates?
I used a 2 amp battery tender on the jumpstart terminals under the hood before I removed the battery. The trunk light was on while i had the battery out, so there was power to the system.
what can I do to reset the fuel gauge. It reads the proper amount, about 1/2 full until the ignition is turned on. All the other electronics seem to be working properly. Any help will be appreciated
I've taken it to a mechanic and he finds nothing wrong. He said to run it. I take it to emissions and they tell me the same.
