Hello there

Sounds like one of your sensors is dead, but start buy cleaning all your sensors, dirt and ice can give a false reading, if you still have the same problem, with the engine off and the key turned on, put the car in reverse and listen to each sensor buy putting a screw driver on each sensor and putting your ear on the other end, the sensor should be giving a clicking sound, the one that does not have a clicking sound is faulty and needs to be changed.

Hope this helps, please don't forget to rate me.

One of your wheel sensors has triggered - needs brakes OR sensor has come undone. Sensors are on left front and right rear calipers. Brake light is on = low fluid. Get your brakes checked

You will need to replace the oil level sensor. It is located on the bottom of the the foward oil pan. Do it during a oil change, you will have to remove the oil first. Here is a link to the part at Bimmer Specialist. Call and make sure it is the correct one before you buy. Good Luck.

2002 x5, the reverse sensor


i would check to make sure the connections to #1 in this pic are secure:

http://www.realoem.com/bmw/showparts.do?model=FB33&mospid=47746&btnr=66_0009&hg=66&fg=05

its the active PDC control unit. this is assuming none of the sensors are working when you are in reverse.

by the way, does the front PDC work or is it acting the same way?

Backing signal keeps on blinking on my bmw x5


Sorry this is not a solution, but my 1999 BMW 328i also has a problem on this area. My left signal keeps blinking even though I have the lever in neutral. Can somebody tell me what the problem might be? thanks.
