Question about 1996 BMW 318

Car radio security code

Hi,

I have a 1996 BMW 316i and after not driving the car for 2 weeks, the security code on the radio was activated.

I did not receive the code from the previous owner(s).

I'm stuck. Not sure what to do. I heard from a friend that a BMW agent should be able to provide me with the code if I show them the registration documents of the car.

Is this so or is there any other way around it?

By the way, I've tried all the "standard" codes like 000000, 111111, 123456, etc.

Thank you

Helena

    I have my code and I know it works because I have had to reset it previously but for the life of me I cannot remember what the process is to enter the code. I have tried just entering it to no avail.

How can I reset the computer box on my BMW 316I


If it is to clear a "check engine" light, any good auto parts store will loan you an ECM analyzer or bring it out to your car and take care of it for you.

The analyzer plugs in near the drivers left knee and you simply follow the on-screen instructions to read the code(s) and reset them.

If you need to reset the computer for some other reason, the easiest way is to disconnect the battery for about 1/2 hour. Please be advised that this will also reset your security system and radio codes and if you do not have them either in your manual package or written down, you may have problems with these systems after a full reset.

Hi have a BMW 316i. It's just had a full service, before hand it felt as though the car was misfiring but now there is no power until the car heats up, it then runs ok with the occasional hiccup


IF ALL PLUGS AND WIRES +COILS BEEN CHANGED FUEL FILTER CHANGE TRANSMISSION FLUID + FILTER. MAKE TRANSMISSION FLUID LEVEL IS CORRECT .IF YOU HAD A FULL TUNE UP.YOU COULD HAVE LOW COMPRESSION ON SOME OF THE CYLINDERS.AND TIMING CHAIN WORN.THESE 2 THINGS WILL CAUSE NO POWER.ALSO RESTRICTED EXHAUST OR MUFFLER.

My BMW seems to be leaking oil from the rear underside


the leak is most likely coming from either the differential cover gasket or the input flange that the drive shaft attaches to, this is called the pinion seal.

Radiator removal BMW 316i


hi, the two clamps that secure the radiator have a small slot on the top, if you insert a small screwdriver into the slot and use it as a pry bar you should be able to unclip the holding clamp and it then releases like a hinge.
