2006 BMW X5 3.0i. Rear wiper motor literally broke into pieces presumably as a result of struggling against ice. No problems with the rear wiper motor leading up to this failure. Ordered a used rear wiper motor and installed it. Still doesn't work. Checked both fuses as good. There is power at the plastic connector for the wiper motor assembly and the ground checks out good as well. I don't believe there is a relay for the rear wiper motor. All other aspects of rear hatch work fine (defroster, lights, locking mechanism, washer pump). I cycled the wiper stalk at the steering wheel with still no operation of the rear wiper motor. At this point I suspect it could either be a defective used rear wiper motor or possibly a defective switch at the stalk. I see no burn marks, smell nothing that would suggest an issue with the circuit board at the wiper motor itself. Does anyone have any advice or suggestions?

I own a 2005 bmw 545i with a smg transmission. The car starts up fine everything it’s in mint condition. But one day I went to srice the car put the e-brake down and put it in reverse and the car stayed in neutral. You can throw from reverse to drive and car Dosent move. On the screen it says transmission malfunction reverse neutral and gears 1-3 avalaiable but car stays in neutral . I had a mechanic come and plug it in and it ran codes saying it was the hydraulic pump. Is that what it sounds like it could be?? Thank you

My car details: BMW 2013 328i model.

While driving on a freeway the warning came up ""Drive Moderately. Increased steering effort required". I took it to the dealer and he is charging 600 USD for a software update that will fix the problem. Any clue what is the problem and how can one resolve this problem on his own. Looks like customer needs to pay for BMW software bugs.
