Hi there,

 

This could be caused either by a fault with the actual climate control panel itself, or a problem with the wiring/relay.

 

Please let me know if you have any further questions. Please press ACCEPT if satisfied with my assistance so that I am compensated for my time, effort and expertise. I am not compensated until you press accept.

 

Cheers,

 

Steve

what within the climate control panel?

 

wiring/relay meaning the blower relay?

BMW Mechanic: Steve, BMW Expert replied 8 years ago

a short inside the climate panel. they aren't really meant to be servicable, you can likely find a cheap replacement on ebay if that turns out to be your culprit.

 

yes, the blower fan realy.

 

let me know if you need anything else. please press accept if satisfied.

 

Cheers,

 

Steve
