Default Re: Do all of your BMW electronic devices and sensors work in your car

Everything works on mine (except the horn but that's probably because I've been running an aftermarket wheel and messing with the steering wheel connectors). 182k miles and I think I've still got the original window regulators (for sure haven't been changed since 138k at least). Heated seats, rain sensor, temp sensors, locks/trunk release all perfect

Doh! My horn. I completely forgot. I have not got around to installing a used set of OEM trumpets yet. Right now their is nothing where my horn trumpets should be.
I dont even know if the wiring/relay is OK until I install the trumpets. I always have a couple SPARE relays in the the car. A Salmon relay for the SMG and a relay that fits the fuel pump or horn or a few other circuits. It's light green. About $22, I think.

Let's list this issue as "unknown and pending".

Yeah, I have never had ANY issues with my electric windows. I love how the OEM controls operate. Everything is 100% OK there since 2005.

I even have 10 year old window tint that looks 100% perfect. You can still see the authentic 3M logo in the tint. That is why it is good after all these years.

Anyways, I help my window motors (and regulators too?) out by using a product called REJEX on the tint. I have Rain-X on the outside. The REJEX polymer sealant keeps the the surface slick and fights the friction and drag of the side electric windows.

I can tell my motors are aging, but they are all the same speed still, and pretty fast and smooth. Amazing.
I love my car.
