2005 BMW R1200 GS Electrical System Wiring problems & defects.

BMW R1200 GS Electrical System Wiring problems : 1.

In The Last Seven Years, I Have Ridden Over 100,000 Miles On Six Different bmw Motorcycles, All Purchased New. I Ride Year-round And Have Always Used An Electric Vest To Avoid Hypothermia. In September, 2005 I Purchased A New 2005 bmw R1200rt Motorcycle. During A Cross-country Ride In May, 2006, My Non-bmw Brand Electric Vest Failed To Function During Rain And Cold Temperatures Encountered In South Dakota. The Next Day, I Experienced Unusual Fatigue, Went Off The Road In Kansas, Totaled The Bike And Broke My Leg. I Subsequently Found Out By Reading A Motorcycle Publication That bmw Deliberately Engineered The Standard 12 Volt Outlet On The Fairing To Shut Down When Using A Non-bmw Electric Vest. I Believe bmw Has An Obligation To Warn Owners About This Unexpected Lack Of Performance Which In My Mind Was A Significant Contributor To My Property Loss And Personal Injury. On My Replacement Bike, I Will Go To The Expense Of Installing A 12 Volt Fairing Outlet Directly Connected To The Battery. *jb

I Bought A New 2005 bmw 645i.and It Had Computer Problems. The Dealer Said The Manufacturer Usually Fixed Problems In 60-90 Days. It Has Been 18 Months And The On Board Computer Has Problems With The Entertainment, And Bluetooth. The Computer Continues To Play Cd’s After The Engine Is Shut Off. The Dealer Ignored The Problem For Months Until I Said The Car Would Need To Be Bought Under The “lemon Law’. They Will Not Replace The Vehicle Because They Now Say All 650 And 645 Models Have Similar Problems And They Cannot Guarantee Another Vehicle Would Perform Without Problems. The Dealer And bmw Northamerica Are Aware Of The Problem.

BMW Z4 Electrical System Wiring problems : 1.

My Car Stalled On The Road Going Fifty Miles An Hour On University City Blvd. In Charlotte North Carolina. I Was Almost Rear Ended By Another Vehicle But Luckily The Driver Was Able To Avoid Me. I Have Never Been That Scared In My Life. This Was The Third Time The Car Had Broken Down In Nine Months. The First Time Being May 27, 2003. The Second Being October 25, 2003. And The Third Time Being January 16, 2004 (this Is The Time It Stalled Going 50 Miles On The Road). The Dealership, bmw Roadside Assistance, And The Managers At Hendrick Imports Were All Aware That My Car Had Stalled On The Road! Being That My Life Was At Issue I Was Upset And They Assured Me That It Would Never Happen Again. I Even Let Them Keep The Car An Extra Few Days To Make It Sure The Porblem Was Corrected. This Is Why I Did Not Take Any Previous Action. Now On March 5, 2004 About Six Weeks Later The Car Broke Down Again With The Same Problems As The First Three Times. This Time It Stalled While Driving In My Apartment Which Is Not A Big Deal Because There Is No Traffic!! What If I Was On The Interstate And It Stalled Again, I Would Not Be Writing This Letter To You I Would Be In The Ground! They Just Want To Fix It And Put Me On The Road Again, But I Know The Car Is Unsafe But They Do Not Seem To Care. I Just Wanted To Let The Nhtsa Know About This Safety Issue!! Thank God I Am Still Alive To Write This Letter To You!*ak

BMW Z3 ROADSTER Electrical System Wiring problems : 1.

bmw Saw Problem At The bmw Z-3 Homecoming. Said If It Was Not The Computer Causing The Door Locks Trapping Passengers Inside This Car, It Was A Short In The Wiring Harness. Computer Changed And The Door Locks Trapped Consumer Inside The Car For 3 Days Beginning On The N.j. Turn Pike Headed To Nova Scotia. The Only Way To Get Out Of This Car When The Door Locks Shortened Out Is To Either Put Down The Roof And Windows And Climb Out Of The Car Or Roll Down The Window And Take The Key Out Of The Ignition And Reach On The Outside Of The Car And Unlock It From The Outside. A Nova Scotia bmw Dealer Said Locks Were Going Into The Double Locking Position Which Should Never Happen From Locking This Car From The Inside. Only From The Out Side. I Have Written Dozens Of Letters To bmw Concerning This Serious Safety Issue But No Parts Have Been Changed Since October 2000. The Door Locks Trapped Me Inside This Car Two Weeks Ago In Augusta Georgia And Again In Brunswick Georgia This Past Weekend. I Also Have Had Continuous Problems Of A Leaking Roof, A Rattling Dashboard, Radio Cutting In And Out In The Left Channel And A Lot Of Other Problems. I Asked Over 2 Years Ago For This 2000 bmw Z-3 To Be Replaced, But bmw Refused. It Has Been In bmw Shops Over 7 Times For Over A Month And The Problems Are Still There.*ak *tt

I Own A 2002 bmw x5 With Less Than 37,000 Miles. In The Last 6-8 Months I Have Had To Replace The Control Arm. More Recently, I Had To Have The Engine Harness Rewired And The Throttle Body Replaced. My Brake Light Is Constantly Going Out Even Though I Have Replaced Bulbs And Sockets Numerous Times. I Have Spoken To Other x5 Drivers Who Have Had Some Of The Same Problems So I’m Beginning To Wonder If It’s A Bigger Problem Than Just My Vehicle. *tr

Mar 29, 2003

After Experiencing Previous Hesitation When Accelerating And After Dealer Inspection, No Faults Were Found And No Corrective Action Was Taken By The bmw Dealer. While Driving On A High Speed Expressway, The x5 Suddenly And Without Warning Shut Down All Systems And All Warning Lights Came On. After Finally Getting Off The Road, The Car Was Towed To My Home. The Next Day, The Car Was Able To Start And, Although The Car Was Not Able To Go Over 30 Mph, I Drove To My bmw Dealer. The Service Technician Diagnosed The Problem Quickly And Informed Me That A Service Bulletin Was Issued In August, 2003 On This Problem. The Entire Wiring Harness And Throttle Had To Be Replaced And Because The Car Was Out Of Warranty, bmw Assumed None Of The Cost Which Was About $1,200.00. I Believe That Owners Should Have Been Notified Of This Problem When It Was Recognized By bmw. The Service Bulletin Stated That The Problem Should Only Be Corrected “upon A Customer’s Complaint” Which I Believe Is Totally Irresponsible And Jeopardizes The Safety Of Occupants.

2003 BMW F650 CS Electrical System Wiring problems & defects.

BMW F650 CS Electrical System Wiring problems : 1.

I Love My bmw F650csa When It Is Working. Repeat The Word : When! The 2003 Model Has Had A Serious Brake Fluid Leak Which Caused A Burning electrical Smell While Riding. It Required The Entire Abs Brake System To Be Replaced As Well As The Wiring Harness That It Corroded. A Second Wiring Harness In The Front Control Panel Had To Be Replaced When The Blinkers Stopped Working. The Factory Battery Has Been Replaced Twice. The Accessory Audio Pod Had To Be Replaced When The Lock Barrel Fell Apart. The Head To Toe Riding Suit Was Replaced After 1 Year When The Armor And Lining And Stiching Fell Apart. The Luggage Bag Also Was Sent Back For Repair After Its Stiching Came Apart. Now The Bike Is Back In The Shop For The 2nd Time On The Same Issue Of The Rear Wheel Lock Nut Comes Loose. Even Though There Is A Pin That Is Suppose To Hold It In Place, The Rear Wheel Feels Really Squirrly When Riding If This Nut Is Finger Loose. So Far They Have Tightened It To Spec Twice And It Is Loose Again. I Use This Bike To Commute Through The City 12 Miles Ea. Way To Work. I Am Very Disappointed In The Poor Quality Of This bmw Motorcycle And Its Accessories. It Seems Like They Probably Went Over Budget Designing The Thing Then Realized They Better Start Selling Them Before They Did Much Test Driving. Like I Said, Its A Great Bike When Its Working. It Has Endanged My Life More Than Once Due To Parts Defects. Come On Guys, Motorcycle Riding Is Dangerous Enough Without Having To Worry About Whether Or Not Your Rear Wheel Is Going To Jam On You While Riding! *la
