      Can you confirm that the liquid line going into the firewall to the evaporator is ice cold to the touch, because otherwise I cannot know which direction to advise you. Is the a/c system overcharged? Is it charged at all? What are the low side and high side pressures?

      It all boils down to whether you have refrigerant flowing into the evaporator or not and if it is the next thing to suspect is the blend door actuator. When you change the temperature setting do you feel the air temp change or not?

      Need more information - are you referring to the blower motor and fan? If yes, try this as a first step - run a jumper wire around the switch / controls to see if the motor operates. If yes, replace the switch. If no, then replace the blower motor itself. The blower motor is easily replaced - located behind the glove compartment. The blower motor control / resistor is located next to the motor itself.

      The parts are readily available from these many on-line sources, www.partsgeek.com, www.rockauto.com, www.discountautoparts.com, www.autopartswarehouse.com, www.jcwhitney.com - to list only a few possibilities.
      In fact, they (RockAuto) list the blower motor from around $132.00 and the blower motor controller / resistor from around $38.80 for your vehicle.

      The body control module seems to have lost the window settings when the battery died. To resync the window you first have to get it to the top of its travel, hold the button in the up position for 10 seconds, then lower it and hold the button in the down position for 10 seconds. The trick here is in getting it to the up position. Sometimes there may be success in getting to window back to the closed position by quickly pulling up on the outside door handle and releasing it. The window may only move up a fraction of an inch but keep at it and eventually it will work it's way up to the closed position.

      If all else fails in raising the window, pull off the door card and unplug the small plug under the window motor (not the main power plug on the top) and then run the window up using the switch. It SHOULD go up all the way. Reconnect the small plug, cycle the window down a couple inches (Be careful! It's going to try to auto-down all the way to the bottom...bump the 'up' button to stop it), then run it up and hold it for 10 seconds. Then spend the next 30 minutes cursing while trying to get the door car back in place.

      You need to read the SRS codes with a BMW SRS capable scan tool. This will allow the identity of the circuit that is causing this to be known and then a fix can be done. You can only solve this if you access the code numbers.

    I need help with the window regulators on my BMW 325 i
    I recently replaced my window regulator on the passenger side twice within 4 months both regulators failed is there a check for the window motor or am I missing something. Please advise thank you

      Are you using Original BMW parts or After market parts? usually after markets parts are cheap but are not worth the trouble. We used after market window regulators before and with in couple of months they broke off. I recommend using bmw original regulators.
      let me know

      Is there a switch or fuse that makes the motor stop operating to a certain point when the window is rolled up?
    • BAVARIAN AUTOMOTIVE INC
      The windows are run to their limit stops which is detected by an amperage increase in
      the control circuit. Do you have a problem running the windows?
