 8 Common BMW service issues and How to Repair BMW

BMW cars are known for their performance, comfort, and style. While BMWs are a famous high-end luxury vehicle, they do have some common problems that a famous BMW service garage in Dubai should address if they appear. 

1.   Faulty Automatic Headlights

In most weather conditions, automatic headlights are convenient. These lights eliminate the need for the driver to flip the headlights on while operating your luxury BMW manually.  However, some BMW cars have problems with automatic headlights staying on even when not required. This draw on the vehicle’s battery can result in electronic issues. It is hard to detect automatic headlight problems. If a BMW owner is experiencing mysterious electronic issues and battery problems, find a mechanic who offers BMW Services and experts to address the issues. 

2.   Discharging Batteries 

Most luxury BMW batteries last between 4 to 6 years. However, few BMW owners have found problems with their batteries discharging overnight. While battery troubles can stem from various technological problems in the vehicles, some common issues include accidently opening doors or leaving lights on. Following smart methods may keep the vehicle’s systems engaged overnight, resulting in lower battery efficiency. We suggest you visit BMW Service to diagnose and fix the issue properly. 

3.   Corrosion Of Alloy Wheels

Many luxury BMW owners love their BMW alloys. However, some cars exhibit premature corrosion on the wheels. No solution exists to fix the corrosion, but to find out what options exist for prevention and replacement, talk to BMW mechanics.

High-pressure water, automatic car washes, and other force water underneath even the tiniest blemishes.

One of the most frustrating problems luxury BMW owners’ faces is a failing fuel pump. In 2016, the company recalled over 135,000 vehicles for issues with the high-pressure fuel pump. Other BMW models also have trouble with fuel pump problems. Often, these problems are a result of issues with wire contacts. Some common symptoms of fuel pump problems in BMW vehicles include sputtering at high speed, the engine refusing to turn, or poor acceleration. Contact the BMW Service garage to fix the problem.

However, BMW did not reveal the exact cause of the power supply problems that resulted in the recall. Some luxury BMW owners have noticed other issues related to the vehicle electronics. Expert BMW mechanics should address any suspected electrical problems as soon as possible. 

6.   Door Handle Problems

BMW owners have reported problems with their door handles, especially on the BMW X5 SUV. A common symptom is the normal physical operation of the door handle without the door actually opening and unlocking. The solution to this issue is most often a proper replacement of the door locking mechanism. Make sure to take the vehicle into a BMW Service garage, as this requires specialist tools. 

7.   Coolant System and Heater Core Issues

Some luxury BMW owners report vehicle heater core and coolant system issues. Often, the first symptom of a coolant system problem is the vehicle overheating or not producing enough heat.
