SRS Light On
One of the most common problems on BMW cars is the SRS light coming on and restraint system failure.
Newer BMWs are now equipped with Auto Start-Stop function. The main purpose of auto Start/Stop is to save fuel.
Every time you stop at a red light or are stopped in traffic the engine turns off. Everything in the car including the ignition remains on. As soon as you take your foot off the brake the engine starts again automatically. It takes about 1 second for the BMW engine to restart.

Greetings, I have two issues:
1. My idrive doesn't work, it turns on then freeze, then off again, what could be wrong?
2. When I start the car, there is a cluck noise as if the starter wants to turn but nothing happens. I now switch it on and go direct to the starter with the screwdriver and it will start. I have checked all fuses and relays.

Hi. I have a 08 bmw 335i and recently changed the center console. After putting it back together and started up the car I’m got a r n d error with a gear picture.
r n d may not be possible use manual shift if necessary but it goes into gear just fine and shifts like it’s suppose too. I’m guessing it’s a loose wire or connection. Any and all information would be greatly appreciated as this error/warning is annoying. Thanks in advance.
I recently replaced my plugs and coil packs on my beemer. Now I've changed em out, of course there's a noticeable rise in power.. But......
