Have an 99 E36 M3 coupe with 127K.
The heater fan recently started throbbing as if power was being
Last Summer, the AC kicked off for a couple of minutes and then
luckily would reappear.
I remember reading about a circuit or switch located toward the glove
compartment that is the cause of this.
If anyone could advise, would greatly appreciate it.
It would ideal to go to the shop TELLING them what to fix instead of
the "let's try this" approach.
I could fix this for you. Here's a link to an eBay auction of mine:
Look at my feedback for past repairs. Contact me or post on here if
you have any questions.
Hope you don't mind if I hi-jack this thread with my similar problem.
My brother's '95 M3 with the older climate control. The big fan speed
knob on the left, and the big "where to blow it" knob on the right,
and the 2 temperature knobs in the middle type.
The other week it stopped blowing. From what he can tell the
temperature control still works, but then again as it's currently
rather cold, he's probably only had it on "Cremate" setting. But he's
got no blow at all.
He said he's looked down the fuses, but doesn't know which on out of
the millions he should be looking at (his phrasing).
Any ideas, or websites to suggest?
As I understand it, it's more of a speed controller which *can* stop the
fan working completely - and did on my E39. Not so sure about earlier
models, but as I say a Google should give all the information.

Ah-ha! Problem solved...
According to my brother, relay #9 had died... So now he can blow hot
Unfortunately it looks like during the "discovery phase" of this
problem he's broken/dislodged something else, so he can't actually
direct where the hot air goes! lol!
