The cause of the display reading E sometimes and S sometimes is a defective transmission module, or getriebesteuerung in German. This module is located in the passenger side kick panel. To replace the module you will have to remove that panel then loosen the 4 10mm bolt which hold the module in place. There is a large set or wires going to this module and it is not simple to remove at first, it takes some twisting and shouting. Make sure your battery is disconnected when you do this and make sure to replace it with a module that has the same part number on it, If you have any more questions I'd be glad to help.

SOURCE: Need to know what kind of power steering fluid to use?

Your car, being a 735 iL (the iL being the key here) requires what is called Pentosin 7.1. This is a mineral based hydraulic fluid used in BMW's with self leveling suspension. Since your car is an iL you have self leveling suspension. Not a lot of parts stores carry this fluid. NAPA has it, if it's not on the shelf they can order it. BMW dealers also stock it. The same pump that runs your self leveling also runs your power stearing and they are filled in the same location as they share a common resivoir. This resivoir is located in the engine compartment on the driver's side and looks like a black bottle with a screw type cap.

Hi,
Please check that the battery is not run down. I suggest you replacing with a dry cell battery just in case it isn't. Check the fuel level and Next you need to check that the carbon brushes of your ignition are ok. Don't kickstart for too long because it runs down the battery too. You need to consider when last it was serviced....
Keep me posted.

Make sure that there is enough fluid in the overflow jug as well as the radiator , I think the jug has a sensor it could be bad, or there may be air in your cooling system tat was not bled out of the bleeder valve if the system was serviced recently.

Bmw 740 il key broke in half at remote part car


Yes it is, but just having the key near the ignition is enough to start the car. If you can turn the ignition with the broken key, hold the broken part in your hand and see if it will start. Hopefully the chip isn't damaged. I know that when GM keys are replaced, they glue the old key under the dash to make it work. Hope this helps.
