Clearly your blower motor is working fine, sounds like you may have an inoperable thermostat or a/c compressor.

Your car is a 2013, most probably still under factory warranty.

There is a problem with the condenser on the air con on the BMW 500 series, 2013 model. I have no air con since mid May and I have been told recently that it's a world wide problem. About 1500 cars. My dealership has 10 at least. I am getting the run around. No delivery date from the manufacturer. BMW will not admit there is a serious problem.

Whatever the case, book it in with your dealership since it will be covered under warranty. They have to fix it.

I have had a major problem with the AC for my 2013 535i...into the dealer 5 times with the AC compressor being replaced 3 times. over the past 1 1/2 years . Despite being promised it is "fixed" each time the AC will work for awhile and then the same problem occurs again...extremely frustrating. .

My 2013 BWM 550ix, also has an air conditioning problem - and the dealer is telling me of a major leak in the condenser. However, the dealer said warranty does not cover replacement cost. I am not happy for several reasons: 1) Air conditioning is a major function of the car and should not be failing; 2) Failure within three years is a major manufacturing flaw and should be covered under warranty; 3) It should not cost $1563.00 to replace a faulty condenser. BWM should address this poor quality issue ASAP.

I just had a condenser issue on my 2014 BMW. A pebble kicked up from the road and made tiny hole in the condenser. Freon leaked out. Upon further investigation I found that the condenser is located behind the grille with no protection around the condenser. BMW tells me that this is not covered under warranty. As it was a road hazard.
