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

Hi all,

The problem got fixed after charging the 12v battery and installing it back. Initially, I had some error messages but they disappeared in a day. So, when you replace the 12v battery, make sure it is charged! Thanks!

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

I've measured the 12v battery and it was about 13.5v. The resting voltage of a fully-charged AGM battery at 77º F is ~12.7 V. If you measured the battery's voltage while it was installed in the car, you were likely measuring the output voltage of the DC-DC converter that charges the 12 V battery un...

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 th...

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

By the way, mine is 2015 i3 with Range Extender. Again I just disconnected the high volt battery and then the 12v battery, waited a bit, and then connected the 12v battery back and then the high volt battery. When I turn it on, it says "Unable to Charge". The high voltage battery range on the dash d...

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

Hi, The old 12v battery died a few days ago and I wasn't able to turn on my i3 at all. Luckily it happened at my garage. Today I replaced the 12v battery in my i3 with East Penn Deka AUX18L, which seems to be the same as the OEM battery. I followed this youtube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lKRj8...

Re: Disabling parking distance sensor for bike rack using some tapes?

This $1 solution worked very well for me! One was not enough for me though. I had to use two on each sensor, a smaller one on top of a larger one.

Disabling parking distance sensor for bike rack using some tapes?

Hi,

I read somewhere that parking distance sensors can be disabled by blocking them with some sort of tapes. What kind of tapes should I use? I've tried with some of tapes that I have but they didn't work. I want to disable some sensors when I have a bike rack on my i3's torklift ecohitch.

Re: Any trunk bike rack for i3? Saris Bone works?

I tried Yakima's fullback but soon realized that it might break the trunk door. I took it off and return the rack. I've ordered an Ecohitch.

Any trunk bike rack for i3? Saris Bone works?

Hi, Is there anyone who uses a trunk bike rack happily on i3? I googled around but I could not find a definite answer. For example, Saris Bone 2- or 3- Bike will work on i3? Saris website doesn't say it would fit i3. I'm wondering whether a trunk bike rack would be generally ok or not and how much i...
