Question about 2003 BMW 325

Open Question

My 2003 bmw 325i has no power to the middle console, the radio, the dashboard lights and the windshield whipers. The locks also will not work unless putting the key in the keyhole and using it manually. I was told possibly the body control module, so I replaced it and still nothing. Help.

SOURCE: BMW remote control problem

I have a e60 525i that I just brought and it has the same problem, the owners manual suggests driving with the key in the ignition for a long time as the batteries are rechargable and may have gone flat, i have tried this and it doesnt seem to work

i also read something about getting water in the aerial about the rear window and that wrecks the receiever. My car isn;t under warranty so not looking forwarding to taking it to bmw

SOURCE: 2003 BMW 325I Power Steering

when looking at the engine with the hood up, look to the right hand side for something that looks like this (#1 in the pic): http://www.realoem.com/bmw/showparts.do?model=ET37&mospid=47720&btnr=32_0957&hg=32&fg=20

it will be black in color, but don't confuse it with the oil filter housing. power steering reservoir will have a unique cap (#2 in the pic) that can be removed with your hand. the one that has the large nut on top is the oil filter. remove the cap and put in the correct fluid.

hope this helped.

SOURCE: BMW 325I Radio knob on/off not operating. Still

if the problem is with the knob being lose inside the radio, it can be repaired. I have been able to successfully repair every one that came into my dealership. most dealers will not attempt a repair. another alternative is to call a reputable audio installer/retailer and see if they will repair it.

SOURCE: 2003 bmw 325i a/c front vent

hi gc, if you are getting cold air and warm air out of different vents with the a/c on, I would recommend having the a/c freon checked. if the system is low, it can cause cold air out one side and warm air out the other. if it is low, the system should also be checked for the source of the leak.freon has oil in it that keeps the compressor internally lubricated and when freon leaks out, moisture can get in the system.

SOURCE: How do I replace power steering pump

first Allow the engine to cool completely Make sure all connections have been tightened to the proper torque settings; power steering fluid pumps at an extremely high pressure.Apply penetrating spray to bolts, nuts, and hose connections Chock all wheels that are not raised off the ground. Don't forget to dispose of all used fluids according to local laws.
First, remove the old pump. You may need to raise your vehicle. Use a jack to do this. For added protection, place a safety stand underneath that part of the frame. (Caution: always use extreme care when jacking up your vehicle and putting it on a safety stand.)
If you are working near the battery, remove the negative battery cable. Remove any parts that might get in the way of pulling out the power steering hoses or pump. Drain the power steering fluid from the reservoir. To do this, you disconnect the feed and return lines and drain the fluid into a drain pan, or use a siphon. (You may need special "line" wrenches to loosen the lines if a regular wrench doesn't do the job.) Make sure to loosen the lines before removing the pump mounting bolts. To avoid possible combustion, take care when draining the fluid to avoid spilling it onto any belts or exhaust parts.
Remove the power steering pump bolts. On some vehicles, you can loosen the bolts by placing a socket through the holes in the pump's pulley.
You may be able to return the old pump for a core refund, so drain it completely of fluid and place it in the box from you new pump. To install the new pump, first install the pulley from the old pump onto the new pump, if necessary. Place the new pump in the proper position. If possible, attach return and feed hoses to the pump before bolting it in place. Install pump mounting bolts; torque to specification. (On V-belt models, tighten but don't torque the bolts yet
Attach and tighten feed and return hoses to pump. Double-check all connections for leaks. Reinstall any belts that were removed; adjust belt tension. Tighten V-belt style mounting bolts after you have adjusted belt tension. Reinstall other parts that were removed (shields, brackets, exhaust, etc.).
Fill system with new power steering fluid. Check for leaks. If there are none, place the lid on the reservoir. Reconnect the negative battery cable. Start engine; again inspect for leaks.
You will need to "bleed" the system to remove any air. (Note: bleeding instructions vary from vehicle to vehicle. Check a repair manual.)
Raise both front wheels off of the ground. With the engine running, slowly turn the steering wheel left to right, lightly touching the steering stop points. Check fluid level. Repeat in order to remove all air. After you are satisfied all air is out of the system, lower the vehicle. Job complete

My 2001 bmw 325i doesn't have power no light no radio and the interior lights are all off


Sounds like you have a dead battery. Try recharging the battery or get someone with jumper cables to give you a jump. If your battery dies again after driving for at least an hour you likely need a new battery. If the battery in the car is the original, it's time to replace it anyway.

The windshield washer quit working on my 2003 325i BMW and the fluid id full. what are the possible problems and fixes?


If you don't hear the pump spinning or pumping then it's a possible bad electrical pump, or it's the wiring to it, a fuse, or the fluid is frozen in the pump if the weather is too cold (below 32 deg. F with 32 deg. F windshield wiper fluid).

insert the key into the drivers side or passender side front door, twist the key and pull open on the handle at the same time and the door will open. It might take a few times to get it, but this does work, source BMW AG Munich.
