Re: i3 Accident Collision :(

FWIW, when that fuseable link is blown, it does not disconnect all of the battery output...some things are still enabled like the BMW emergency cellular connection, and probably a few other things (like the hazard lights?). I do not know what circuits remain on, but there are some. On ICE cars, onl...

Another incorrect statement and lack of knowledge from a factory trained personnel. -Once you open the car, or wake it up, only some of the modules will wake-up and the load on the battery will not be that high. In fact, the current drawn from the control modules should be under 1A. If the car is eq...

Re: Warranty replacement of 12 V battery

The car itself will not report the battery is getting weak until an undervoltage condition has been recorded. It may not happen in a normal daily use, but if you leave the doors opened and the music on with the ignition off, it will happen.

Re: Warranty replacement of 12 V battery

ISID is the BMW diagnostic system.

Re: Help: supplier for electrical machine electronics in i3

I dropped the left side of the motor/eme assembly by removing the bolt of the motor mount. Then disconnect the HV battery from the front service disconnector and carefully remove the HV connector(s) on the top of the EME. The rest is T20 botls to remove the cover.

Re: Salvaged title 2014 i3 bev

Why would anyone purchase a vehicle with a salvage title? After 35 years of owning a BMW, Mini and M/Benz repair shop, I saw numerous people attempting to defy the financial reality of a salavged car. The general attitude was that "now I can afford to have a BMW". I would tell them no, this is not ...

Re: Windshield replacement

Here are the direct links to the instructions. I will remove them in a day or two.
In the preliminary task there is a link to removing the outer door skin.
