Gear shifter is in park but cluster reads sport mode car will not start

Hello and welcome to FixYa!

As a first course of action, I strongly suggest that you remove the positive battery connector and let it sit for at least 5mins. before reconnecting it. This will reset the system and can get your vehicle back to it's normal operation.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

How do you tell where is the source that is drainig your battery?

Hello and welcome to FixYa!

Try charging your battery as a first course of action. Try to disconnect the battery while parked or when it will sit overnight. On the morning, reconnect the battery and start the car. If it does start then the battery is good but if it doesn't, then the battery is faulty for it's not holding charge. If that's the case, the battery will surely need replacement.

If it drains the charge when parking overnight with the battery connected then try checking grounded wires on the fusebox. It can be hard to tell and I suggest that you take an auto electrician with you to trace out the fault.

Hope you find this helpful and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

Hi hows it goin i have a bmw 320d e46 03 plate the car will start no prob when cold but when its warm it sometimes wont start for 20 mins and just have to leave it sit there this is happening more often...

it has a sensor fault but the problem is finding the fault ,best advice here is to ask BMW dealer to have a look for you as sometimes this sort of fault could be anything from a sensor to a microprocessor and without the correct software its very difficult to locate

to check oil start vehicle in park and let idle, open large allen bolt [normally 17mm] on g/box sump, oil should spill from aperture. if not top up until it does. this must be done at a temperature of less than 30 degrees celsius as oil expands at higher temperatures.

I have a extra piece when i put the ignition switch back together

It may be difficult to find parts to fix this quickly. You can remove the lock plate and replace it with a similar thickness flat washer, then jump the neutral safety switch, replacing it with a push button. Of course it will start in any gear if set up this way, but the buton must be depressed when starting, to remind you to put it in "park" first! Still not as safe as the factory setup but it will get you going!
