This is usually a sticky switch on the brake pedal. An auto sparky easy fix. Radios commonly have a timer which they continue to run after through car is turned off this is useful in busy traffic where you turn off the car in jams or are just waiting like picking upfront a train station.

Sounds like you might have a caliper that is stuck and is not fully disengaging. If it is in the rear then you may have a bad rear caliper. Twoo things you can try. One is to crawl under the ca and adjust the tension two nuts on the emergency brake line. If that does not resolve the problem then remove the back tire and try to spin the drum or rotor whichever you may have. If it does not spin then try adjusting the e brake cable more if it still does not respond then you need to do a brake rebuild. Also does it pull while it is dragging? If it is then you will need to rebuild the brakes no matter what.

SOURCE: RADIO WON'T TURN OFF WHEN KEY IS TAKEN OUT OF IGNITION

The other item is could be, if not a defective door switch, is some of the new MY trucks develop broken wires from the door to A-pillar.

This should be a black w/ yellow stripe wire in the harness between the door and a pillar. Not very common, but has happened more then once.

SOURCE: check engine light comes on but car runs great 2002 bmw 325i and

The check engine light could be any number of things and the only way to find out is have the codes scanned. The brake light issue is common on E46 3 series. It is an issue were the brown ground wire that goes into the lamp housing melts at the connector causing a loose ground connection. The connector needs to be replaced and also add additional grounding wires to prevent further issues. And for fuel additives either use the cheveron techron, or the bmw fuel additive(the bmw stuff is the exact same thing, so just use which ever is cheaper).

Tip

Reset oil maintenance light on a 04 bmw 325i


-press and hold the left instrument cluster button
-at the same time turn the key from the off position to the first position (just until the radio lights up, if the check engine light comes on you have gone too far and need to try again)
-after a couple of seconds the display around the odometer should change and say insp or os reset at that point let go of the button and press and hold the button again
-when the word in the odometer area starts to flash let go of the button and just press it like you would if you were resetting the odometer
-at this point it should say end turn the key off and back on again to see if you were successful (it may take a few tries before you get it)

The first thing to do would be to check all fuses. Sometimes a very random blown fuse can cause this. Also unhook the battery for one hour to reset all systems, and try a jump start if you have not just to be sure it isn't a battery issue. Also try locking/unlocking the key driver's door a few times using the key in the door. If the fuses are good and the battery reset does not help, nor a jump or key in the door, then there are a few other things that can cause this such as bad key - try another one, bad brake light switch, the switch is above the brake pedal, shifter not fully in park (auto transmission only) - try moving it around a bit, bad transmission position switch, bad clutch switch, dead starter/solenoid/relay or bad ignition switch/cylinder/start button.

2001 BMW 325i - Key no longer unlocking doors.


if you have a bmw 325i 2001 model try this solution:
if you have one key , go on to the next step. if you have more than one key, like two or more than follow this procedure.

step one: unlock the doors with your key and get in and close the doors but do not lock them
step two: put your key into the ignition and turn it but not to start the engine, do this less than 5 seconds

step three: take the key out of the ignition and put it near the shifter. press and hold the unlock button while pressing the lock button 3 times. you have 30 seconds to do this. the doors should lock and unlock automatically signalling that it the key has been reprogrammed. if you have more than one key follow those steps for each one except for step one. remmember you have only 30 seconds for each key. that should help you.
