SOURCE: Where is the Crank Sensor '99 BMW 523i E39 Auto

are you sure you need the crankshaft position sensor changed. it is at the back of the engine i believe, but.....
check for a wet ecu first... read the note on e36...

the ecu compartment is under the windshield on the passenger side on E36

you gain acess to it under the hood....
this compartment gets wet, the ecu lays on a flat surface in that
compartment.

the bottom side of the circuit board gets wet and starts corrosion.

remove the ecu, take the bottom plate off, clean the bottom of the circuit
board with alcohol and a soft tooth brush.

you should be able to see the signs of corrosion or conductive build up.

this gunk bridges solder points doing all sort s of wierd things to your
car, including false sensor readings from asc/abs controllers and other
sensors....

all the way to engine failure and worst case burnt and shorted wiring
harness.

I'm on my 3rd ecu, took me and the repair boys a few years to figure this
one out.

BTW: i would get that ecu mounted above that flat surface, use some sort
of standoff to raise it so that it is not laying in the wet.

Just brought BMW 316ti noticed a yellow light coming on in centre of dash do I need to worry


Of course you need to worry until you find out what the light means . IT could be a light warning you of a possible serious fault in the engine/ transmission ( engine fault light from no water ,brakes etc ) have it checked out before it can become costly.. Lights are not there as Christmas decorations but to save you money.

Yes, it could be the door switches.If the door switches aren't on the B pillar, then they are within the door lock mechanism and you will have to remove the inner door skin to get to them.

Bmw 316ti compact dcs light stays on


See the information attached, and use the common sense, and logically. God bless you
The CD/DVD, has 2 switch one for open and another for to close. the swicth can be dust, dirty, or defective.Test the power switch for dirty, dust, or defective.
The unity can be dissasembly, and make troubleshooting, diagnose.
I can recommend you to go the repair shop. When the switch is NOT open they NOT send the signal to the SYSCON(CPU) or microcontroller.
God bless you

My bmw 316ti compact keeps cutting out when slowing down towards a junction. The engine/revs shudder and the car locks up. It starts again straight away afterwards but what is causing it and how much will...


my 2003 bmw 316ti se id doing exactly same as this but also a rough idle when started from cold. it cuts out at most junctions etc when putting on breaks and pushing in clutch, starts no problem. it drives beautifully when out of town etc no overheating etc. please help. i just had a mechanic on it for 5 hours with no solution.

there was a fault came up when plugged into diagnostics (MAF sensor) but checked maf sensor and it is a new one so erased fault code and hasnt came back so assuming this wasnt erased when new part put in.

The ABS warning light on my BMW 316ti is flashing.


The flash may be a faulty brake light switch located on the rear of the brake pedal
