Having problems with your 1996 BMW 318 ?

Hi, I own a 2000 318i BMW the battery has been flat on and off over the last couple of days. The AA tested the battery and the circuit and said that there was an intermittent drain of about 2-3amps every 3 minutes or so. I sat in the car with the doors locked & alarm armed and noticed that the the AC fan started up and ran for 30 seconds to a minute...every 3 minutes or so. This happens even if I have turned of the AC and fan controls before turninh off the engine.

Answers :

The radio is the one that came with the car? Sometimes they use a powered wire for a ground to connect an aftermarkey radio or othe r device. In the fuse relay panel look by touching the relays to see if thuer hot to the touch. remove the relay you find and then see what diesn;t work. If the radio is the one that came with the car, you may have a contol module isusse or a rusted ground. Look near the battery for any rusted connections as the device may be loosing the ground that normally has it turned off.
The fan relay needs to be replaced
