Hi all, I've got a BMW 335i 2008 with 81km, Sedan, stage 2 tune and mods. Recently I've had a problem with my water pump not working and ends up over heating the car. With some research and looking at forums other BMW owners had the same problem, where car would over heat and big radiator fan would kick in. So I ended up changing the water pump and thermostat to a new one. Topped up with coolant and tried to do the blend process but water pump does not seem to come on. Also saw that someone had the same problem as me where he had new water pump and thermostat but water pump would not turn on, he ended up changing the fuse in the ECU box and it fixed his issue. I ended up opening the ECU box and finding out that the fuse has blown. So I rush down to the shop and grab a new fuse (exactly the same fuse) put it inside the same spot as before and instantly it blow. I've called my friend and told him the same story and he determined that its a short circuit somewhere in the wiring of the system something along the lines of some wire not being grounded that causes the problem. My question is does anyone know what many be causing this issue? and how would I fix this? Any help would be much appreciated and welcomed as I've been trying to fix this for quite something now and completely lost. Thanks
hi guys i have a 2007 e90 320i, no idrive i changed the led angel eye bulbs to led and they had been going good for a few months. then the passenger side angel eye started flickering, over time it completely stopped working. its putting out the code cc-id 13 which is a fault which the passenger angel i believe. changing the bulbs doesnt solve the issue. so i am led to believe that it is an issue regarding the frm module. from what ive read online, when the frm module detects a short circuit within the system, after the ignition has been cycled 50 times, it will disable that circuit to prevent damage. normally the frm module would need to be replaced in this instance, but i have seen online that you can solve frm short circuit issues with some coding. people use the toolset32 program to reset the short circuit count from 50 back to zero to tell the frm to turn on the circuit again. is there anyone in auckland or hamilton that is able to help me. so annoying driving with one angel eye, and the bulb warning never goes away.
