IBS Issue I think

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
So here in Sacramento we finally got some rain. While it was raining it was cooler so my car seemed a little hesitant to start which I figured wasn't a big deal. Then yesterday I tried to start my car and nothing happened at all. Sources it eventually to unplugging the ibs and the car will start but sometimes the cooling systems all kick on like the fan and such. I've never had any problems with my water pump or anything else and there were no previous signs. I believe my ibs was shorted because there was a lot of water in my battery compartment. Does anyone know the best place to get a new ibs and if that would cause my car to not act normal when it's running.

I've had an IBS problem before. Required a lot of wiping.

IBS is Irritable Bowel Syndrome. :-(

Thanks for all the smart ass responses. When I need help I'll be sure not to post it here. IBS stands for intelligent battery sensor. Grow up

Don't get your panties in a wad. I'm sure if anyone had an actual answer (including me) we would post it up.

Can't believe you didn't get the "wiping".

Shouldn't be water in the battery compartment...

There is a "relief" vent I believe for the battery compartment, perhaps it is stuck open or broke and allowed water to enter?

Before investing in a new battery and ruining it, I'd really look into where the water came in from...

... there is a TSB on the battery cable - if you never had this done, I'd have it checked out when you get a new battery and/or get the water problem corrected.

Maybe if your panty wearing ass posted this question in the right forum you wouldn't get smart ass responses...
