SOURCE: 1996 bmw 328i wont start

Possibly. 1st have the battery checked though. Pull it out and have a parts store check it (free service). All the lights may work, but the battery may not have enough 'juice' to crank the engine over. Is there a click, or no sound at all? Check terminals and connection at starter also to make sure all are clean and tight.
If battery checks out as fully charged and ok, then pull the starter and have it checked out. Good luck.

SOURCE: BMW 1996 328i E36 cnvertible Driver side window

micro switch may have failed. have a very close look in the door latch fixed to the car...there should be a very small square pressable switch.. open the door and press your finger inside the latch against the little button, the window should drop and raise. If you dont have one there its on the inside of the door lock mechanism.

Have had this problem. Solve it by reading the owner's handbook, which gives clear instructions. Do not use the key in the tailgate door before reading the instructions.

I had the same problem, after having the car towed to four Seasons, it was discovered that the electrical portion of the ignition switch was defective. Works like a charm. Part number 61 32 8 356 026 Hope this will help.

This may be the problem of the anti-theft system is on since the security doesn't recognize your key.Your key may be faulty or your alarm is armed and the vehicle can't start.

P0340 fault code


Assuming you have a 1996 328i convertible based on your photo as there were no US 96 328is.
It is located at the left front end of the the engine cylinder head under the plastic cover behind the VANOS solenoid next to the top of the oil filter housing. In addition to the new sensor, you will need new metal o-rings for the VANOS line, a new rubber o-ring for the camshaft sensor and perhaps a new socket head cap screw if you round out the internal hex trying to loosen this Loctited screw.

You have to hold the key near the antenna ring that surrounds the key hole. While I was waiting for my new lock cylinder to arrive, I pulled off the steering column cover and detached the electrical part of the ignition. I was then able to start and stop the car by turning that switch with a flat blade screwdriver, but I had to have the key near the antenna ring in order to crank the starter. Once the car is running, you can put the key back in your pocket.

When I turn on the ignition, the anti-theft red light is on and I cannot start the car


It sounds like the immobiliser is not being disabled. Are you opening the car doors with the key fob? Also, a common problem is the immobiliser is not reading the chip in your ignition key. There is an antenna ring around the ignition lock which reads this chip, however, the antenna connector can corrode and can be fixed by simply replugging it a few times. To get to the antenna,remove the lower cowling around the steerinfg wheel.
