Hello.

I'm assuming you have an auto transmission, if you do, then if you are lucky changing your transmission oil might do the trick.

If you want to try this, then you simply need to change your transmission oil drive the car for a few hundred miles and change the oil again, this has in some cases solved the problem but its not guranteed.

If you're talking about the Anti-Theft Security code for your radio, I'm fairly sure that only a BMW Dealership would be able to retrieve and reset the radio.

You could also try disconnecting the battery terminals for 10-20 minutes, and see if it resets.

Starter - Removal & Installation

The starter motor on some models is very difficult to see from the top of engine compartment as it is covered by the intake manifold. On these models, without removing the intake manifold, the starter motor must be removed from underneath the vehicle. Because the starter motor mounting bolts are not easy to access, a long extension with a universal joint mounted on a proper sized socket could be used. A three foot transmission extension is commercially available from tool vendors that has a 3 / 8 inch drive of the driven end and 1 / 2 inch drive on the drive end. If used with a non-binding impact universal joint and a proper fitting impact socket, the starter motor fasteners can be removed from underneath the vehicle.
Once the starter motor fasteners are removed, the starter motor may have to be moved side-to-side several times to loosen the dowel pin if it has corroded in place.

NOTE When the battery is disconnected, the radio code, on-board computer and clock settings will be lost. The radio code should be obtained before disconnecting the battery or radio. Once the battery has been reconnected, the radio will not function unless the code is keyed in.

SOURCE: What does the big red

If this model has the runflat tyres, it could mean that the system has detected a punture or low tyre pressure. Check the pressure of all the tyres, and reset the system when the fault is rectified. The reset procedure is in the owners manual. Hope this helps.

MIL light not operating a 1997 BMW 328i.


you will need to get it hooked up to a OBD code reader to see what is going on, if no faults show then it sounds like the MIL has blown or been disabled , it has been known that some have been known to drill a fine hole in the dash to bust the bulb to hide a fault, if no fault the the bulb had gone which means a new dash on most cars as the bulb is mounted in the curcuit of the dash panel, you can get a obdcode reader form ebay for a few dollars, make sure it reads BMW , easy to use and reads the VIN numbers to make sure car is the one it it ment to be
