the flashers just come on for no reason, several times a day. what causes this?
Battery is only 1 year
the likely issue?
and other related parts is there a diagram available
what would cause this problem
my mechanic said that i should replace the power steering pump 1st and then see if i need to replace the rack and pinion. how can you tell if it's the one or the other in 2003 325i bmw. the fluid is ok and it doesn't make any other noise. If i replace the pump should i replace the pressure hose too. He's saying it's not necessary to repl hose
the air only blows cold on the drivers side.
I moved the passenger seat backward and reclined it all the way the other day and now the switch clicks like normal, but the seat does not move an inch. Is it a fuse, is it the motor, or the switch itself? How can I diagnose and then fix this? PLEASE help, it's my girlfriend's car, and she blames me for it! Gah!
Just purchased vehicle. All else works great, except CD player. Detailed service records reveal VERY WELL KEPT CAR.
It currently has none.
I cant figure out why the light keeps coming on even after the sensors have been replaced.
My car stutters when i first turn it on right about when it steps over the blue marker on the temp clock. if i drive with it stutters and stalls to the point where i have to park and shut it off and turn it back on, sometimes once and lately twice for it to work fine. If you have any advice please advise.
