Question about 2006 BMW 525i

3 Answers

My 2006 525i BMW has started showing a new symbol

When I start up from a complete stop a "LIMIT" light comes on the information dash board along with a description on the central computer screen that says "Speed Limit Exceeded". This turns off after a short distance but will return after each COMPLETE stop. I have 76,000 miles on the car and I do not make "jack rabbit" starts. Recenty had complete front brakes done and a synthetic oil change. I do not know what this is or how to stop it other than taking it to the dealer.

It is just an alarm set by you or another driver. The car has a setting to let you know when you reach any speed the alarm is set for like 65 mph for example. Its just a reminder to keep you from speeding. Someone must have set yours to 10 mph or something. Just use the OBC button on the radio and then press the button for "LIMIT". Adjust it to a higher MPH or set it to ZERO to turn it off.

SOURCE: 2002 BMW 325i - engine won't turn over / start.

take battery back get a new one or have it tested. like auto zone or a parts store even wal-mart now. If this battery was just dead and needed charged. Then sounds like to me you have a bad alternater. you can rely know if you can get the battery charged up and get the car to start. and while the car is running pull the positive connection of the battery if car dies bad alternater .

hello, check for a damage crank position sensor this sensor sends the singnal to the dme (digital motor electronics ) to inject fuel and pulse the ing coils and will also start the fuel pump when it see a rpm above 500 this is a good tell sing if you crank the engine and the rpm does not jump there is a good chance that the crank posistion sensor is bad / the battery and engine light will be on untill the engine strarts

SOURCE: High oil Consumption, BMW M5

Look for Castrol TWS 10W60 Motor Oil. This car should not burn so much oil, you need to use a different kind. It is recommended by BMW as well. I also heard the VANOS isnt an issue anymore, can be fixed with a different MAFF. Good luck!

wow sorry to hear that it sounds like the head gskt blew but im scratching my head on that one because that is not very comon for the engine in that car, But i would say head gskt since the oil pressure in the car runs way higher than the pressure in the cooling system so thats why it would have blown a hole in the radiator, and mixed in with the coolant, i would not say that the place that changed your oil is at fault they could not have caused that to happen

WHy the vehicle does not start when pushing the start button and the dashboard does not light on?


A 1997 BMW 328 (E36) does not have a start/stop button. The start/stop button didn't get added until after the year 2009.

If you mean it doesn't start when you turn the key, and no dash lights come on, you may either have a bad ignition switch or a dead battery.

1998 bmw 740il will not start even with new a battery


If you checked all the fuses try putting the car in neutral sometimes the shifter gets misadjusted and wont start till the car is completely in park.If not check for a lose wire to the starter.If the car has an after market alarm you will have to turn it off before starting there should be a little buuton under the drivers dash or kick panel.GOOD LUCK
