If its flooding then its not sparking,or auto choke stuck .suggest you learn german and swear at it in own language ,failing which take it to a dealer as it could be anything from a cracked coil pack to a temperature sensor and without the vehicle in front of me this is one of them look and see type jobs.Could evan be the multiplug on the coil pack loose honestly its very dificult to diagnose without hands on .

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.

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.

Engine keeps flooding itself, and wont start when warm


leaky fuel injectors or a bad fuel pressure regulator could be the cause. check the fuel pressure. should be 3.0 to 3.5 bar.
