    Fan Not Working

    I have a 2002 3.0 and all the sudden the fan stopped blowing. It figures, that it's right after the warranty expires. The climate control unit displays everything and the fan speed dial shows that the fan should be blowing and it is not. Has anyone had this problem before? Is it possible that it is simply replacing a blown fuse?

    It's the Final Stage Resistor.

    Re: It's the Final Stage Resistor.

    Thanks, I been reading other BMW forums and it seems like it is happening to too many of their models. The symptoms are all pointing to the Final Stage Resistor. I scheduled an appointment to take my car to BMW service, do you think my regular mechanic could fix this or should I keep my appointment?

    Go to X Five World front page, using number, not "five", scroll down to #8 under Misc Section, click, and read.
    The RoadFly czars seem to block X Five World, lol!

    Just had this fixed on my 2001 4.4 today

    It cost about 200.00 parts/labor. At least they cleaned the wheels of brake dust!

    Did you have it repaired by BMW?

    Re: Fan Not Working

    thanks to you guys on here i have just replaced my final stage resistor and saved 000. i have a X5 2003 3L diesel. Fan just stopped working. All the functions on the A/C display showed it was ok but the fan wasnt working, what ever i did. Fuse was ok.

    I used the instructions on http://www.xoutpost.com/articles/x5/miscellaneous-x5/10139-final-stage-resistor-replacement.html and had the old one out in about 15 mins. it is a bit tricky but believe you can do it, it is not that hard. Bought a replacement from my local stratstone BMW garage and put the new one in. turned the ignition wondered if after 15mins and 70 it (surely couldnt work?) but the fan kicked into action - brillant. Wife and I danced...
