If you're talking about the Anti-Theft Security code for your radio, I'm fairly sure that only a BMW Dealership would be able to retrieve and reset the radio.

You could also try disconnecting the battery terminals for 10-20 minutes, and see if it resets.

SOURCE: changing the oil on a 1997 bmw 328i

locate the oil pan under the engine and then unscrew the bolt on the pan let drain into an oil drain pan then screw bolt back on tight but not overtight then put in the required amount of oil ( should be in owners manual) and start up ( you can obtain a repair manual book for this car at the library for free, but if you intend to do alot of your work on this car yourself buy one at an auto or book shop)

Starter - Removal & Installation

The starter motor on some models is very difficult to see from the top of engine compartment as it is covered by the intake manifold. On these models, without removing the intake manifold, the starter motor must be removed from underneath the vehicle. Because the starter motor mounting bolts are not easy to access, a long extension with a universal joint mounted on a proper sized socket could be used. A three foot transmission extension is commercially available from tool vendors that has a 3 / 8 inch drive of the driven end and 1 / 2 inch drive on the drive end. If used with a non-binding impact universal joint and a proper fitting impact socket, the starter motor fasteners can be removed from underneath the vehicle.
Once the starter motor fasteners are removed, the starter motor may have to be moved side-to-side several times to loosen the dowel pin if it has corroded in place.

NOTE When the battery is disconnected, the radio code, on-board computer and clock settings will be lost. The radio code should be obtained before disconnecting the battery or radio. Once the battery has been reconnected, the radio will not function unless the code is keyed in.
Starter motor electrical terminal fastener torque specifications for all models:
M5 terminal fasteners: 44 inch lbs. (5 Nm)
M6 terminal fasteners: 53 inch lbs. (6 Nm)
M8 terminal fasteners: 115 inch lbs. (13 Nm)
Starter motor mounting fasteners:
Hex head bolts: 36 ft. lbs. (49 Nm)
Torx bolts: 32 ft. lbs. (43 Nm) Starter motor electrical terminal fastener torque specifications for all models:

  10. Remove the starter motor mounting fasteners at the transmission bell housing, then remove the two mounting nuts at the L-shaped mounting bracket.

Have got red brake light on dash on grand voyager whats this mean ,


Probably brake fluid is low, refill to full line, if it happens again soon, you have a leak, possibly a bad wheel cylinder, master cylinder, or brake line.

The radiator light is on and I wanted to know what that could mean.


You're probably low on coolant. Check the coolant reservoir under the hood, and if it's below the "Full" line, add coolant until it is full. If you're not familiar with the coolant reservoir, look in your owner's manual under "Cooling/AC system" or "Maintenance". There should be a picture or drawing of the reservoir along with instructions for filling it. Good luck.

1999 ford escort SE rear brake line leak


You can replace line in full section or just a piece. Full section would be my suggestion, remove brake line from end to end that is bad..this doesent mean you have to remove the complete line clear up to the front of car,it should be in sections. After removing bad section take it to auto parts store and as the can give you the correct size without guessing. Most sections bought at auto stores are straight and can be bent useing brake line bender.They useually cost around 15 to 20 dollars.....after bending and replacing be sure to bleed brake system.....nedd more help fill free to contact me...good luck

Coolant Light is on even when its to the full line, not overheating but i am loosing coolant overnight and have to replace it


You say "when it's to the full line". If you are referring to the plastic coolant reservoir, that is not an indication of how much coolant is in the radiator. You must remove the radiator cap to check the coolant level and too add coolant. If you are pouring coolant into the reservoir, and the radiator is low, then the coolant in the reservoir is probably being pulled into the radiator after you have driven the vehicle. That doesn't mean you are losing antifreeze. It just means you need to put antifreeze in the radiator.

What does the light next to the security light mean on a 2001saturn SL\r\nIt is square with a t on top with wavy lines at the bottom inside the box


Hello: That light means either the cooling system is low on coolant and/or a failed coolant sensor. Check the surge tank under the hood if it is empty, fill it to the level indicated. If low it could mean the cooling system has a leak. If tank is full then possibly you have a failed sensor.

On the panel there is a red arrow showing up on the gauges, what does this mean


this means your coolant level is low. check the reservoir on the passenger side of the engine compartment, fill to full line. if it is down significantly, you should have the system pressure checked for leaks. good luck!

Ford focus 1.8 turbo deisel 1999.


do not understand you what you mean. assuming your car was ok before you changed f/filter you need to bleed the fuel system of air. esiest to do would be to loosen fuel line at the injectors and have assistant crank the engine while you observe for clear fuel leak without any air bubbles from fuel line.tighten fuel lines and start engine. might have to repeat a few times. good luck.
