FSR
« on: May 15, 2018, 02:24:34 PM »
I know this has been done to death but should I be confident this is the problem if my heater is blowing hot whilst set on low. I have no control over any of the switches, stays on permanent even when key out

Did you loose the lighting on the heater panel, everything has gone dead except the blower motor which is going flat out.

When mine went none of the heater controls functioned, and the fan still blew at a fairly high rate of knots even with the key out, eventually lost all lights until the battery was completely flat by the time I managed to get the FSR out.
Changed and all back to normal, luckily I had a brand new battery ready to go in. Replacement FSR from BMW had a lot more prongs on it and was about £70, eBay also have cheaper ones of course.

New FSR arrived this morning, fitted and has made absolutely no difference. still exactly the same problem. Took the control module off cleaned up the little fan and resistor, contact cleaner on all plugs, no change. Any suggestions? Is this now pointing at the control module.

Might be worth contacting a firm such as BBAreman thy repair all sorts of electronic devices. I bet a new one from BMW would make your eyes water!!
If in doubt, and all else fails - read the instructions!!   :) :)

Had this on my watch list for a long time and they repair a lot of other modules.
If you wanted it fixed you could ask them.

Thank you guys for the contacts, I have sent a message asking the question. Thought I might mention that once I had taken my old module out I took the cover off and the dust/hairs/cr*p around the little fan and the resistor(I assume) was unbelievable, don't know if this contributed to the failure but it certainly didn't help. Used one of the wife's make up brushes to clean the replacement (she wasn't amused) but hey ho as long as the X runs good :P
