You have a short or exposed wire somewhere behind your stereo, when you hit a bump, it shorts or grounds out....remove stereo and make sure that the black wire is properly grounded and the the red power wire is not broken or exposed and touching any metal ......

2000 v reg bmw 316 drivers door lock wont open with a key


problem here can arise through the car always being locked / unlocked with remote, the actual barrel in the lock can sieze up, worst scenario is to replace the lock barrel, your local bmw dealer should be able to order you one which will fit your key (if it is original one ) you may need to show your v5 and take photograhpic id proof with you!

Engine cuts out


BMW CUTS OUT
A few things to check.
  1. Is fuel pump delivering enough fuel.
  2. Is injectors clean. Perhaps dirt in fuel. replace fuel filter
  3. Air leakage at top air intake of manifold at ICV idle control valve. Two hoses inside this housing prone to perishing.
  4. Throttle position sensor faulty.
  5. Mass air flow sensor faulty.
  6. ICV faulty or dirty. comon fault on older e36.
Havent done it yet but ICV is easy to clean according to internet. instruction available at bmw e36 blog. All off above can be tested by yourself according to manual.

BMW 316 L reg, car stalls and dies when changing down approaching a junction, I have to leave it for a number of hours, then it will start. This is doing my head in.


I had a friend who bimmer did this. It was the sensor that goes to the air cleaner. I can't remember what is is called specifically, but check with your BMW parts man and he will know.
