Bobby and his staff are top notch. I have been using their services for years and was coming to the new shop for the first time. I was given a personal tour of the facility and all work was done on time and correctly as always!

Great group of guys that work here. Military friendly reasonable prices. This shop is straightforward with timelines and prices if it needs attention they will advise you what needs to get done. If it can hold off they will give you a timeline on how long it can remain in that condition. I trust these guys with my vehicle and highly recommend this shop.

Engine Will Not Start and Fault Message "Start Error" Appears in Instrument Cluster
If you receive customer reports in the above model
vehicles of the engine not starting and the message
“Start Error” appearing in the instru
ment cluster, the drive authorizat
ion module may need to be replaced.
The drive authorization module (FBM) listed in the Part
s Information section below now contains modified
software to correct this condition.
Note:
This occurs when circuit 15 is truncated
after the engine control unit sends a drive
authorization system inquiry to the dr
ive authorization module. If circuit 15
is switched off during this inquiry
or is interrupted before the drive authorization modul
e can respond, the same variable code is again used
for the next circuit 15 cycle, as the
drive authorization module has saved t
he previous inquiry. This results
in the engine not starting for this key cycle.
To resolve, remove the old FBM control unit as
per WIS instruction AR54.21-P-1300GH and replace FBM
control unit with part number listed in
the parts information section below.
Note:
Step 6 of AR54.21-P-1300GH checks whether the vehi
cle can be started with all keys. Ensure
that all keys are available prior to beginning this procedure.

An "unusual noise" is difficult to diagnose without hearing the noise in person. There are multiple internal engine parts, i.e. rod bearing, main bearing, valve lifter, timing chain and low oil pressure that can all cause "unusual noises". My suggestion would be that you have your car diagnosed by a BMW service professional.

In order to see what exactly is malfunctioning in the vehicle, we would need to perform a system diagnosis with our factory equipment. Feel free to give us a call or better yet, stop by and say hey!
