Re: Engine check light

When you mention they refuse to replace the "fuel pump sensor" - I hope you are not referring to the fuel pump relay that sits next to the fuses (under the glove box)? To change that sucker is step numero uno whenever you have any REX issues. People have swaped out complete engines to find the relay...

Re: Range Vs mileage Vs charging speed?

Aloha Art, by charging the car to only 90% you don't allow the Battery Management System to perform the cell balancing that normally occurs when the battery is full. This is essential, because not all cells are absolutely the same. This could explain your very high degradation rate at relatively low...

Re: Engine check light

Before you start replacing hardware, I would
- buy the Bimmercode App
- clear all the error codes.
- wait

If the engine light comes on again:
- replace the fuel pump relay (costs around 15.- Bucks and 20min DIY) - this normally accounts for 50% of all problems :-)

Re: Rapid battery loss / gain 75 to 65%

Sudden jumps normally indicate a faulty battery module.
But before you panic, I would run the battery down at least 2-3 times to below 10% and charge it back to 100.
Maybe the Battery management system needs to re-calibrate.

Re: HELP: just replaced the 12v battery but can't start my i3

Make sure your new 12V battery is charged. Connect both batteries, plug charger into car, lock car if you can and let it sit overnight. If that doesn't help, then try to clear any error codes with an app like bimmercode or carly. If nothing works, then it might not have been only the 12V battery tha...

Re: charging port door grinding sound when opened

You can swap the lock yourself if you have the time:

Will probably save 5000.- bucks in labour by BMW garage :-) :-) :-)

The video shows how to replace both actuators - the one for the door and also the locking actuator for the charging connector.

Re: 2017 i3 - voice command not working

Your voice command may not be enabled. Depending on the country you live in, and the Navigationsystem you have, it may or may not be in your configuration. I believe in Germany you had to have the "Comfort package" and or the "enhanced bluetooth" in your config for the voice commands to work. Where ...

Re: Voice Commands & Battery Readings

If you press the "voice" button on the stearing wheel just very shortly (and release), than you can do voice input to the Navigation System (and many other things - like saying "phone book" or "Map 10 miles" or .... If you press the button longer (i think its more than a second) before you release i...
