#1479 of 1508 2006 BMW X5 ignition off but still running
Feb 21, 2009 (1:50 pm)
It just happened once today.
After I turned off the ignition and took the key out. I noticed something was still running under the hood. I waited a while and it kept running. I did not wait for it to stop. I put key in and started the engine again (I did check the engine temperature and it was normal.). Then turned it off. After this, I did not see anything running any more.
The running was like turbo charged engine, which keeps running for a while after you turn off the engine.
Anybody experienced this?

Maybe it was just the radiator fan? Most of them are thermostatically controlled these days and will run (if needed) whether the motor is on or off.

It might be the fan which was running. But why? It never happened to me before. Engine temperature was normal and weather was cold. After I re-started the engine and turned it off, the running was gone rightaway.
I am not sure if it is normal.
Steve, thank you for the reply.

I just bought an '05 4.4 with sport + premium. 24k is good/fair depending on condition. If there is still warranty left or it is CPO, I think it is pretty good!
Maintenance - cannot tell, depends too much on condition, but I'm prepared for higher then your average car.
Issues - check x5world.com, but from what I read, minor stuff, my PDC and folding mirrors stopped working, but are still under warranty.
I like the look. BMW keeps to maintaining their theme.
Resale - I realy expect it to depreciate 2-3k per year from this point.

I am having the exact same problem with my 2002 X5 sport. My local shop told me the bladder needs replacing ($1000+) but was able to fill it and it held for about 2 months. Let me know if you find a better fix, as no lights are on the dash etc...

Definitely worth the extra for the nav system. You are never lost. Only negative is the update DVD is expensive.

Final stage Module goes bad and blower motor continues to run after ignition is turned off running the battery down.Dealer repair about $350. do it yourself with dealer part for about $130
