Re: Replacing 12v battery in RHD (Japanese) | Accessibility

Hi! Thank you for the idea. It might actually work. I never considered sliding it as i was refering to the newTIS and was always considering how to do it in an inrestricte manner with more degrees of freedom. The question is how heavy is the battery and whether it can be handled with a single hand s...

Replacing 12v battery in RHD (Japanese) | Accessibility

Hi friends, I’m looking at a 12v battery replacement and have read a few informative posts about the same here. However mine is a Japanese domestic version where the arrangement under the hood is slightly different as you can see in the pictures. The battery is located to the right of the frunk and ...

Re: List of Errors || which of these are critical and which are minor

Hi Bob, These three are the recurring ones. i mean the at least those reappeared after the brief test drive we had. Since the vehicle is back with the current owner now, i dont know how many of those have reappeared by now. We cleared all fault memory and had a brief test drive (about 4 kms) to chec...

Re: "Increased battery discharge when stationary" and other errors

IF the car gets to the READY state, the 12vdc battery isn't dead, as all of the computers run off of that. That doesn't mean that it's not weak, though. Testing that battery is a little tricky, too, as you can't test it in the car like you would a typical ICE...you have to use the disconnect switch...

I guess so :) and i just hope that that alone will resolve these problems. The question is how to verify whether it need any additional work (like hv b...

Re: "Increased battery discharge when stationary" and other errors

Most modern BMWs have numerous modules that communicate via the CANBUS. If one or more of them doesn't get the shutdown message, it can continue to operate as if the car is on, and thus draw far more power than it should. Diagnostic software at the dealership should be able to identify what's going...
