#677 of 685 BMW X5 Navigation Monitor
Jul 22, 2012 (10:01 am)
I just bought a 2001 X5 and the dealer had to jump the battery to start the car. The navigation monitor hasn't come on yet and the radio, while it does turn on, turns off after about 10 minutes. It turns immediately back on but I'm wondering why this happens.
Is it because the battery was dead and needs to charge back up? I also noticed that I can't open the back doors using the remote entry or the button on the center console. Also battery related?

Say, did your self-leveling suspension ever get fixed? My 2006 X5 is back in the shop after less than 500 miles...will not stay? Local BMW service is dumbfounded, cannot get it right...replaced mats, computer, etc. ANY IDEAS???

I have a 2001 X5 and my car just did this today. How much where your repairs? More than $500?

They were about $1700 a side... Pretty pricey and what happen with mine is one side went and then a month to the day, the other side went... Hopefully it's cheaper with your mechanic

I am leasing a new x5 and not sure if I need the tire insurance. I have always purchased it on sedans but not with any suvs. Any help/guidance is most appreciated

#685 of 685 fuel gauge

Resetting fuel gauge
I left my GPS on and it pulled down the battery in my '03 BMW X5. I recharged the battery. When I started the car, the fuel gauge read empty. I know I had a 1/2 tank! Just to be sure I topped the tank, 11 gal. Now the gauge reads half full?
