Yes, I know that the sensors doesn’t cause my car to NOT start bc it was fine before the rain got into my fuse box, but after some water got into the fuse box it is now completely dead, and no signs of power next morning, which is today.
my windows wouldn’t roll down as well yesterday, before the car lost all of its power, when it had some juice left
but best option now is to check the battery?
also how does the relay fuse look like? I tried looking all over the internet but still can’t find any idea where it is in the engine bay fuse box.
also should I jumpstart the car or just get a new/recharged battery?

thank you for the help
I have a 318 d sport (manual transmission) year 2012 which I bought in April this year. Last week an error message came up with a yellow triangle about the DRIVETRAIN. I took it to my mechanic who scanned and it said that the error was related to an automatic car and my car is manual! They reset and for a few days the light was out. It is not back on. Any advise on how to rectify problem? Many thanks
As per the title (and I know probably not the place to post but it's not a sales request so hope it's allowed)
I've had a bit of an incident with the front bumper on my car and am looking to find the best place to get hold of a new replacement either genuine BMW or a very good OEM one or as it will need painting I'm also considering a nice looking aftermarket one that could give me a better look so any help and ideas would be gratefully appreciated.

Do you mean the self-levelling system or the shocks ?
Not a job I have ever done but if you haven't already, take a look at www.realoem.com put the last 7 digits of your Vin into the search box it will call up your model. If you have a copy of INPA/ISTA look at the TIS and it should give information on the BMW Workshop sequence for servicing the suspension.

First break down the issues you have the O2 sensor will not stop the car starting so the priority is to find out why it won't start.
You have had water in the main engine fuse box I would pull the starter relay and check it while there check all the relays. Don't dismiss the battery check it or get it checked you should measure 12.5v to 12.8v at the charging points under the bonnet engine off ignition on. Anything below 12.5 will indicate a discharged or dying battery, first action fully charge the battery.
Make sure the Main Fuse box is fully dried out, check each fuse and relay as already said and replace as required (don't just look at them test them). Then if the water ingress didn't cause any other damage, start the car.
Your O2 sensor fault indicates the Heater circuit so with the fuse and sensors replaced fingers crossed it should be OK. Disconnect the battery in the boot (Neg First) for at least 15min to reset the fault codes, then run the car and rescan.
