SOURCE: i have a 1999 323i

i had the same problem with my 1998 bmw 323i and right under the back drivers seat there is an emergency convertible top lever with a orange tip on it. i removed my back seat to make it easier. when you pull that lever, you will hear a bang sound. that is the sound of the motors disengaging.(there are 3 top motors in the trunk by the left side panel when you remove it) you will then have full access of movement to either put the top up or down. But before you do any of this, i Really suggest you watch this youtube video. if this link doesnt work, you can go to youtube.com and type in bmw convertible top motor stuck and click on the first link BMW DIY #3 E36 Top Repair. I suggest watching the whole video first before attempting or if you want, you can have a mechanic do it! hope this helps

You need to inspect the spark plugs to see i the engine is running lean or rich. I have seen cars set codes or the O2 sensors instead o setting rich/ lean codes.

Just got there codes for my 2000 323I P1250 P1188 P1189 P0304 P0173 P0170 It pass the test,anyone have any ideas ???


P0304 = #4 cylinder misfires
P0170 = Fuel Trim, Bank-1
P0173 = Fuel Trim, Bank-2
P1250 = this is invalid code for BMW
P1188 = Fuel control, bank-1, sensor-1 (pre-cat sensor)
P1189 = Fuel control, bank-2, sensor-1 (pre-cat sensor)
Vacuum leaks and/or sensor defective for the issues of the codes.
This error codes really need parts to replace. But you have to replace the thermostat first. Then clear the codes and see if any reappears,then replace defective part/s

I rencently had the same problem. Lasted a week or two before it threw a code. Ended up just being a camshaft position sensor. Replaced sensor, now it runs like new. Just be careful with the crankcase breather hose, it's very brittle!

Does the code p0340 have anything to do with the transmission on my 2000 bmw 323i?


DTC P0340 - Camshaft Position Sensor Circuit Malfunction
This indicates that a problem was detected in the camshaft position sensor circuit. Since it says circuit, that means the problem could lie in any part of the circuit - the sensor itself, the wiring, or the PCM. Don't just replace the CPS (camshaft position sensor) and think that will definitely fix it.

Symptoms can include:
Hard starting or no start
Rough running / misfiring
Loss of engine power

A code P0340 could mean one or more of the following has happened:
a wire or connector in the circuit could be grounded/shorted/broken
the camshaft position sensor may have failed
the PCM may have failed
there exists an open circuit
the crankshaft position sensor may have failed

Possible Solutions: With a P0340 OBD-II trouble code, diagnosis can be tricky at times. Here are some things to try:
Visually inspect all the wiring and connectors in the circuit
Check for continuity in the circuit wiring
Check the operation (voltage) of the camshaft position sensor
Replace the camshaft position sensor as required
Check the crankshaft position circuit as well
Replace circuit wiring and/or connectors as required
Diagnose/replace the PCM as required


Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I'll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using Fixya, and have a nice day

After diagnostics on my 2003 bmw 318 coupe,camshaft sensor error showed up to be the problem.my car struggles to start and keeps cutting out whilst driving..will replacing the sensor solve this problem?


Hi there,

You are correct...

Your vehicle's ECU relies on data received from the Camshaft sensor, to determine correct engine timing etc etc. It's also important to note that often camshaft sensor errors are closely related to crankshaft sensor problems also.

Recommend you disconnect the the Camshaft Sensor plug and do a test accross the terminals. If the measurements are not to factory specification, replace the sensor then clear the code. If the engine still cuts out, continue to query the diagnostics until problem is solved.

I have 1999 bmw 323i, autocoolant light comes on for 1 minute or so and then turns off - no visible leak. what can be the issue ?


the issue is the holding reservoir and the sensor in there. i gues on engine shut off, the pressure in there prevents the sensor from being properly read.

i have a 1999 m3 from new till now 400,000kms it displays that error fairly regularly.
