Bmw 320i fuel gauge not working

It was working fine till this morning. When I turned on the ignition, the needle rose about a millimeter and looked like stuck, and the ''low fuel'' light came on. I bought fuel enough to make the needle rise to the 15 liter mark, but it wouldn't. I checked all the fuses, but they were all good.
Are there any other fuse boxes apart from the one in the engine bay?
Please help.

I have a BMW 320 CI SPORT, but fuel gauge is not working even when is fully tank. I don't know what is wrong. The amber light is constantly on. The fuel tank is not reading Please help with any suggestions


lift out the rear seat and remove the fuel pump and gauge unit. Cover the tank with a piece of plastic and tape and tape to stop fumes escaping. See if the float is still there. Check the follower on the level resistor. If the resister strip is black, try to gently clean it with a pencil eraser. Swing the arm up and down and see if your gauge moves

Bmw 320i timing


There is no adjustment for the timing of the ignition. It is totally controlled by the computer. For the cams you need a little jig to position the cams when you are working on the timing chain

L have a 2000 BMW 320i e46 which started giving me problems this morning.Every time l get to a stop sign or a robot my car is stalling and then cuts off.


General advice:
Radio interference.
Ceck alternator recharge rate.
Very low on details,u mean if in a parking lot it will iddle fine?If breaking hard won't stall?If easy break engage won't cut?
Fuel/Fuel line/fuel pump related issues.
Air mass (MAF) sensor related.
U must track the problem,more details.
Cheers,share if figured out.

Cluster problem BMW e90 320i


Some cpu units require a fully operational alternator for everything to work as it draws directly from that source of power. The cheapest course of action would be to have that checked out first

My bmw 320i e90 2005 only cranks but won't start


Car not starting or turning over indicates towards multiple possibilities. It can be issue with battery or weak battery. But if battery checks out ok, then it can be starter issue or faulty alternator or problem with low fuel pressure or no spark at spark plugs due to dirty spark plugs or faulty ignition coil or injectors getting cracked or dirty and needs to be cleaned.


To confirm the problem, the basic troubleshooting is required.

My fuel gauge says its empty


Your fuel costs too much, put more in it. Other wise, it probably has a faulty sending unit(sensor) Fill it up and see what it says then. Set your trip gauge and check the mileage or what ever u use there.

Oil can showing bmw 320i is there a problem


Usually this just means that you are a quart low on oil. Check your oil and if it needs it add it. This should make the light turn off.

Have a 1988 hilux. The fuel gauge shows the fuel level even when the ignition is off. Otherwise it seems to work fine.


Toyota fuel gauges from that time were actually meant to work like that! It's not drawing power from your battery with the ignition off, the needle just stays at the last reading.
