I have a 2008 BMW X5 3.0si I changed the belt started it up than accidentally left the doors open n killed battery I replaced battery wouldn’t start again found out I needed a ac delete belt cuz the ac thing froze will bypassing the ac with the belt fix my car? Mechanic's Assistant: Have you changed a battery before? No Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your X5 3.0si yourself? What have you tried so far? Changing battery trying a ac delete belt... Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the Mechanic to know before I connect you? Having a hard time the belt seems way to small even without going around the ac it’s a gated microv part # k070539

Hello my name is\*\*\*\*\* will be assisting you today. I hope your day is going well so far. May I ask your name? also, there were 2 options that I see, 1 serpentine belt or 2, can you send me a photo of the front of your [engine](/topics-engine/)?

I don't have photo of itIt's the 3.0 si v6
Automotive Expert
then please take one when you can. if you run the engine with no belt it should prove the ac compressor is the issue, I do not see a ac delete for this model. you will have to have the ac compressor replaced.

I have a ac delete belt that is for that car though

here is the routing with ac, i dont have a routing without.
Automotive Expert
for cars without ac I would imagine more pulleys, to allow tension from the tensioner.

But that ac delete belt is for my car right?if I change the battery do I have to reset the idrive or watever?
Automotive Expert
when you change the battery you need a scanner to code the battery into the cars computer. as for that belt, its not an ac delete belt, its a belt for no ac option, theres a difference, i am not sure that belt will work for you my friend.

That’s cool I don’t want ac n e ways do it won’t work
Automotive Expert
the compressor most likely seized. that is why it wont turn.

Wat about resetting the car computer
Automotive Expert
there is no such thing as a reset. you either fix problems and clear any codes, or you program the new battery specs into the computer. that is it. everyone out there is looking for some "reset" there is no such thing. there are processes to follow. so once the battery is installed you need a scanner to program the specs into the module and then check for any codes and address them. i know this may sound like general information but thats the process. attack the issues as they come. there is either broken or fixed, no reset.
