Hello all From NYC

Hey guys. I've been battling with this no heat condition with my 325i E36 M50.There is no power to the heater solenoid at the fire wall.Climate control is analog/rotary knobs.I purchase a use controller from EBay(broken knob). Some one told me that if any component is unplugged,i need to take it to the dealer to be reset.is this true?

I never heard of that......looking in my Bentley there looks to be 7 fuses tied into the heating system. Fuses (#16,-5A)...(#20,-30A)...(#23,-5A)...(#31,-5A)...(#37,-10A)......(#39,-7.5A) & (#41,-30A). There is also a heater/A/C Blower relay.]#9... the link below will show you locations of fuses & relay:

Welcome to the Werkz. I don't believe you need the dealership to reset anything for you in this case. I've found that older cars can be repaired at other shops and codes can be reset with scanners pretty much anywhere. Only the new cars are restricted mostly to dealerships because the scanners for them cost too much for a typical shop to buy. Unless they are a specialist shop.

; Always start by looking at Fuses like Jonny mentioned. You shouldn't have to take your car to the dealer for anything, unless you want to. There are products and shops out there for you do do everything yourself or a lower cost professional at an independant shop. If your handy at doing work yourself look into getting the Bently manual that Jonny also mentioned. Good luck and don't be afriad to ask lots of questions because, that's what we are here for.
