You need to jump the neutral safety switch there was a plug you disconnected in front of the shifter it has either 4 or 6 pins, take the plug you pulled out cut it off of the old gear selector and plug it back in and strip the wires back, the wires are color coded so like colors usually go together. with a 12 volt test light ground the clip to a proper ground, turn the key to the start position hold on start and check for voltage at the wires you previously stripped, let go of key and voltage should stop if voltage is constant you may be on the reverse light circuit, keep looking for voltage that goes on only when key turned to start, when you find it look for the corresponding color ie green /white to green/ black etc, wire the 2 together and starter should crank over, if not try another one. you will also need to wire the reverse light switch from the new trans to this connector. stay away from brown wires as they are grounds on bmw and never hook anything but brown to brown unless you are 100 percent certain it hooks up that way

I replace the ignition switch assembly in a 1998 BMW THE NEW KEY WON'T START THE CAR . EVERYTHING IN THE DASH BOARD LIGHT BUT WON'T START


Check with the dealer to see if that model car has a chip in the key. If it does then the new key wont work because it does not have the chip or the chip is not set right.

Bmw 1999 323i has power but no reds on the dash


Does the engine turn over when you try to start it? Or is it just dead silent? Your engine requires a lot of power to start, where the lights on your dash/etc require very little power. It's not uncommon for the battery to be able to power everything in the car but not have enough power to start the engine. Check the voltage at the battery when you're trying to start it. it should be around 12 volts. Try a jump start if you don't have a voltmeter. If it starts when hooked up to another cars battery then your battery is the problem.

When i try to start my honda the lights on my dash wont light uo and that 5 second delay,before you can start the car.wont come on either. is that my main relay


Probably not the main relay. You either have a bad battery, bad battery connection, bad fuse, or bad ECU. If the lights on the dash don't come on, that's not good. See if your lights work on the car...that should let you know if you are at least getting power. Then check the fuse to the ECU. If everything checks out, you probably have a bad ECU.

Starting


I think you have the wrong clutch housing installed or the flywheel spacing from the block is wrong. When the switch was made to manual from auto there should have been something fabricated to shim the starter into the correct alignment with the new flywheel's ring gear the same as it used to align with the flexplate. Good luck with this one
